  1. I have the Razer blackwido Macro. I want to use the macros keys to specifically switch my playback devices from headphone to speakers. How would i do that?

    Well, you'll need to do two things.

    You'll need to launch this program: C:\Windows\System32\mmsys.cpl

    Then based off of your ordering of audio devices, you'll need to program a macro.

    Use the arrow keys to navigate to the desired playback device, then hit tab, and finally, enter.

    After that, close mmsys.cpl with Alt+F4.

    I'm sure you can write up a script/batch file to automate this, and have Synapse run that script/batch file.

    Been trying to figure this out myself. Before windows would automatically switch devices whenever headphones were active but with the razer audio software I just installed I have to change it manually. Having a Macro would definitely make it easier. :wink_:

    I totally didn't write up some VBS before discovering this.

    Set Sound Device

    Download, and all that jazz.

    Then select option B, follow instructions.

    In Synapse, simply select Launch Program, and navigate to the .Ink file you created.
