Win7Audio plugin


Plugin=Win7AudioPlugin controls the sound device and volume.

The measure will return different "string" and "number" values.

  • String: The name of the current sound device. This will be used when the measure is bound to a String meter, or if the string [SectionVariable] value of the measure is used.
  • Number: The percentage (0-100) of current volume level. This will be used when the measure is bound to a meter which requires a percentage. This numeric value can also be used in a String meter, by setting the Text option of the meter to the numeric [SectionVariable:] value of the measure.
