A simple and pretty soundboard application for podcasters.
The easiest way to get started is to drag and drop a file onto the soundboard and start smacking your keyboard.
Supports any audio file format that can be played in Google Chrome.
- Duck controls
- Import/export soundboard configuration in JSON format
- Use multiple soundboards at once
- Trigger sounds by keyboard or mouse
- Flexible, responsive user interface
- Volume controls at global, soundboard, and individual sound level
- Loop and multi-fire functionality
- Set the start/end time of tracks
To integrate this app into your existing recording workflow, I recommend any one of the following MacOS audio-routing applications:
- Soundflower (free, open source)
- Loopback Audio (by Rogue Amoeba)
- Audio Hijack (by Rogue Amoeba)
- Sound files are copied into the Soundboard application; you can delete the original files after importing them.
Added solo button to soundboard settings. When enabled, all other sounds are paused when a new sound is played.
Ratings and Reviews
It works, but that's it.
The interface is very un-Mac like and especially if you have a non-retina Mac, this app will frustrate you since the interface won't fit on the screen of a 13" Macbook Pro.
Along with having no "time remaining" countdown option for audio files playing, the display of the elapsed time is so tiny it's almost unreadable. The useful audio duck functionaliy is buried away in a "settings" menu, and in another settings menu (yes, there are two) it manages to show that it's copied every audio file you ever used for a soundboard but then only give you the option to delete them. What's the point of that?
While this app does what it needs to do (Play audio files) the rest of the interface needs a lot of work.
it works, but very, very basic
It is very, very basic board. Generally speaking - it’s working and can be some sort of replacement of Ambrisia’s soundboard for very simple cases, but lacking any advanced functionality. There is no way to control this board from the keybord except start/pause. For example no hot keys for restart, no hot key for ducking and so on. It is also hard to see what track is active (paying) now. UI is ugly and looks odd on mac.
Super responsive soundboard app, and is a much needed alternative to Ambrosia’s “Soundboard” app at a fraction of the price. Thanks!
