    Also being able to assign shortcuts to switch to specific speaker profiles for multi monitor setups would be incredible.

    Hey,

    That is valuable feedback!
    We are seriously considering adding a keymapping and MIDI control feature in future versions of Systemwide.
    I can't currently specify when it will happen, but we are investigating the implementation of such an option.

    I agree with the above. Shortcuts (both keys & MIDI) are needed to switch among multi-monitors & headphones.

    Hey,

    The good news is that MIDI mapping is already available for some features with the current version of the Reference 4 Systemwide software.
    To assign a MIDI key, either right-click on the feature (Enable/Disable calibration, Mono) or select map MIDI in the drop-down menu for presets (shown below).

    You can read more about it in this article -

    When I try to midi map systemwide using my Behringer x-touch one, it listens for the midi input and receives whatever button I push. Then I save it, but the buttons then fail to do what they are mapped to do. Any idea what is happening?

    - Added support for assigning MIDI controls to bypass button, preset selection and Mono mode

    This is great but not anyone uses a midi controller, or maybe not in every listening scenario switching presets or disabling/enabling Systemwide, so please add the same functionality to computer keyboard key bindings, like other apps do (OBS studio comes in mind when you wanto to start/stop recording). So that whichever application is active on your computer Systemwide always listens for that particular keybind.

     

    Thanks

    Hey Koda,

    We have thought about introducing a feature that would allow the user to assing the keyboard to contol some of the functionality as well. We haven't yet developed a method that would work with our engine well and wouldn't inhibit other software employing it. There is however a high likelihood that it will be possible with future releases.

    Great news!!!!

    About interacting with other software, it's normal that if you have "global" shortcuts that are recognized even when the application is not in focus on your PC, all other applications that listen to the same shortcuts (bot focused or with the same "global listening" method) will react.

    I think this is a non-issue and it's normal. Solution is to be able to assign keybindings, so you can have different bindings if this will happen.

    Great support great stuff! Keep on

    I would REALLY like to see this feature. I have a number of different audio devices that I switch between, being able to bind a hotkey (or a combination of keys, like Ctrl + a key to avoid conflicts with programs) would be massively convenient, especially since Windows itself doesn't have this feature. 

    At the moment I'm relying on a someone's small-time GitHub project to switch, but it's buggy and is just another layer on top of Reference 4 that I have to deal with. It keeps switching my Default Communications Device around which is creating all kinds of headaches.

    Another vote for this. There are standard APIs to hook up global keyboard listeners so it should not be a huge task to implement this.

    I think a couple of features around this would be useful:

    1. Global hotkey to toggle between presets. E.g. "I want to switch between speakers and headphones by pressing key combination."

    2. Global hotkeys to select individual presets, e.g. "I want to set it to headphones now by pressing key combination".

    I found this thread while searching for this feature. I'd really love to see keyboard shortcuts for toggling between presets and/or outputs. I'm currently accomplishing this with Keyboard Maestro (for Mac) and a Stream Deck. It's not pretty.
