"This is not really a program where you have millions of options to play with. It's more a zen one: you launch it and forget it. You'll just remember about it when it automatically kicks in and do what you were about to do out of habit, before you.

"I'm embedding here a short screencast of the old version, since I don't have any newer one available. It will give you a better idea of what I'm talking about.

"This release is packed with new features, and finally seems very stable. Let's go over the new features one by one:

* USB Headsets support: if you plug an usb headset, the audio streams will be automatically transferred to the headsets.
* Updates special volume keys to point to the usb headset when it's plugged in: no more need to mess with the volume applet, the special multimedia keys of your keyboard will work on your audio boxes or usb headset depending if the latter is plugged in or not."
