    [Release] Volume Control (Windows 7+ only) remake


    current Version: 1.9

    This plugin is a remake of the original VolumeControl by Teamspeak, which only gets API updates and is no longer under development. I will refer to it as 'the original plugin'.

    It reduces the volume of other applications when someone (including yourself) in your channel is speaking.

    This plugin does only work with Windows 7 or newer due to the used WinAPI calls!

    Why a remake and whats different?

    The common problems with the original plugin were crashes and the permanent lowering of volume for some applications, especially games with a launcher like League of Legends.

    Obviously I can't guarantee a non-crash experience through perfect bug free code, but every feedback is appreciated

    To address the permament lowering of volume this plugin works a little bit different than you are perhaps used to from the original plugin.

    Original plugin:

    • saving the volume of an application, which is set in the Windows Sound Mixer per application
    • someone speaks: using the "suppression rate" as a factor
    • everybody stops speaking: going back to previously saved volume

    This plugin:

    • someone speaks: using the "suppression rate" as the volume
    • everybody stops speaking: going back to the same value as 'master volume'

    This is important! If you are using the Windows Sound Mixer to control the volume on a "per application" basis this will obviously screw you, because it will reset everything to the 'master volume' and you should consider not using this plugin!

    If the plugin fails to load, please ensure that you have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 runtime libraries:

    For version 1.6 and lower:

    1.0 API19: Release
    1.1 API19: internal version with bug fixes which did not really fix what I wanted
    1.2 API19:
    fixed: plugin stops working after changing the default audio output device
    1.3 API19:
    implemented suggestion: Set your own master volume for the application to get set back to?
    fixed: getting actual path to the config file by using API call getConfigPath()
    tweaks: reduce number of WinAPI calls
    1.4 API20:
    updated API version
    fixed "Error on extract" which occured since TS3 update
    1.5 API20:
    added option for volume suppression on speaking yourself (you can disable it now)
    added option to change the audio device
    1.6 API20:
    added an editable blacklist to exclude applications from getting suppressed
    1.7 API20 (make sure to get the VS2013 redistributables for this and every future release):
    added a whitelist as an alternative to the editable blacklist -> if you want, check the box and you can let the plugin only suppress the applications you want
    added the functionality to select multiple audio devices and not just one
    1.8 API20:
    added a delay option
    1.9 API21:
    bumped API version, unfortunately I lost my project files and had to use an old backup from 1.7, so the delay option is gone
