    After playing with KX Project for a bit, I've found some interesting but somewhat annoying behaviour. It seems that:

    • If I remove the tray application from the registry, and reboot the computer, my settings dont get applied (e.g. DSP routing).
    • The settings are applied on a user-level basis, instead of a global system-wide configuration.
    Correct me if I'm wrong (and I could easily be), but wouldnt it be better to make the application and the driver independent of each other? More over, can we have an option for global settings as well as user-dependent settings?

    Otherwise it's all good :)

    You can use the --once command line switch to have kxmixer restore settings and then exit at startup.

    i.e. change the registry key to:
    kxmixer --startup --once

    A bit off topic but can we remove (not load) windows mixer since it seems redundant with the kx tray app?

    Well you cannot remove the mixer itself, but there is no need for the icon in the systray, so you can uncheck the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" option, of the "Sounds and Audio Devices" applet in the Control Panel.

    It can be useful to leave the windows mixer tray icon visible if you use two or more sound cards and at leat one of them is not supported by the kX drivers.

    Hmm, if the settings can be applied before logging into windows, that'll sound a little better...
