Soundpad is a media player developed by Leppsoft, which allows users to play sounds through audio devices and into voice chats. Users can also benefit from a practical in-app audio recorder and editor to record and create sounds. Users can then output these sounds in high quality to a variety of communication apps and games.
How can you use Soundpad?
Soundpad's core functionality revolves around being able to inject sounds directly into voice chats. In essence, the application acts as a soundboard, allowing you to string audio files together and play them with the click of a customized hotkey. While you can use the app to create your audio clips for other use, it shines with its implementation into communication tools.
The integrated audio editor quickly allows you to chop up audio clips to the desired length, and even play around with compiling multiple sounds to make something unique. Volume integration also allows audio clip volume to equalize with your voice, meaning you won't deafen anyone on the other end of the call.
Once downloaded, you can install the app quickly. The app auto defaults to your system's recording device, which is usually your microphone. Take note that, as with numerous applications that extend your core audio drivers, you will need to restart your system for the app to function correctly.
An unfortunate oversight is that the app requires you to deactivate windows audio DRM validation, which means you cannot watch DRM-protected content. Despite having an audio equalizer, many users have reported that the app will continue to play audio without responding to on-app level changes.
What apps work with Soundpad?
Leppsoft provides a prominent list of voice-related applications that Soundpad can use, including communication tools like Discord, Teamspeak, Skype, and also games such as Dota 2, Counter-Strike, PUBG, and Battle.net.
While not explicitly expanded upon, Leppsoft notes that Soundpad 'works in any voice-related application', indicating that if you don't see the app you want to use it for above, it will likely be configurable with the voice app that you're using.
Outside of this, users can make use of the app simply for its audio editing capabilities. The built-in audio editor is extensive enough to chop sound bites together to create something that you want to share with others. Don't forget about the recording feature, which enables you to record any sound coming through your microphone, providing additional benefits for quick audio recording. Finally, the quick selection via hotkeys allows seamless integration without drawing your attention off-screen to play each sound.
