Where is the driver located? Binary or sources?

I assume it is for 32bit and for VMWare.

I'm using VirtualBox. I haven't tried HD Audio.

Is the sound utility app connected to your nice volume adjust gui? I like the simplicity of it. And I like the idea of a Titlebar gadget for sound.

I can do some testing.

You'd better ask Aggressor instead. You might help him debugging/finalizing it, THEN, I can link it to my GUI.

Thanks for the tip. I'll ask Agressor if I can help testing the sound volume control. I believe it goes hand in hand nicely with the work deadwood is doing improving hdaudio.

On the subject of this thread earlier someone mentioned placing a Sound Gadget in the Titlebar?

I think it's a good time to think about User Gadgets for AROS Titlebar? More on that later. ;-)

If you think of it we already use Titlebar Gadgets even if we don't realize it. There are two defined areas: System Gadgets and Gadget Strings on the Left Side with the AROS System Graphic and User Gadgets and Gadget Strings such as Date & Time on the Right. The Depth Gadget is part of Standard Gadgets like Window Gadgets.

I envision a more modern full featured set of User Gadgets much like Mac OS X or like perhaps Linux.

If we make GadgetMenu a seperate app and copy it to WBStartup or in startup-sequence then double click on the Titlebar could activate the menu. I like that idea. No Prefs required. And I like the idea of a Sound Gadget in the Titlebar.

I'll demonstrate this in another thread. Thanks for your time.

Have a good day! :-)

Any working idea would be highly appreciated. My GUI would just pop-up somewhere on the screen like any other Zune-LUA based application, and I'd have simply added it to AmiStart on Icaros. But something AROS-wise (that would work also on any flavour of AROS) would be a far better solution, IMHO.

paolone or aGGreSSor

Is there a link somewhere to AHI Sound System API functions ?

My intent is to do some research and some testing if possible to find out why the SetVolume.exe isn't working or how it can be made better so that aGGreSSor can finish the sound volume ctrl.
