The interface of this free soundboard program seemed a bit complex to me but once I figured out its options, it became quite easy for me to load different audio files and mix them up.
A single soundboard of Mixere offers upto 67 blocks, where you can load your audio files.

One awesome feature I encountered while testing this freeware is that it lets you take snapshot of the current soundboard. It means that you can record audio files and their status at a particular instant. Basically what this feature does is that it makes a restore point of the soundboard. With this feature, the recorded snapshot for a particular board can be restored at that very point if needed.

Another thing with this freeware is that you can always Save your soundboard and snapshots whenever needed, but the only limitation is that the file will be saved in MIX format by default.

Soundboard is a free software which lets you create your own personal soundboard of audio files. It has a simple interface which you can easily understand and use.
It offers 16 sections in which you can add different audio files at a time but you can add only WAV audio format as this is the only format this freeware supports.
To add an audio file to a section, you can either browse and select the file or just drag and drop the file to that particular section. Let me tell you that once all the sections are filled up, you cannot add more audio files. If you still want to add a sound track, then simply empty a section and add the desired sound track.
Once the soundtracks have been added, you can play them individually with a click or use the Loop button to select and play the added audio tracks in a Loop. You can even control the volume of the playback with Volume button.
You can save the list of added audio files as XML as well as load a previously saved profile and play it again. It features a Debug option which lets you view detailed log of added/removed audio file.

Silica Interactive SoundBoard
Silica Interactive Soundboard is a simple soundboard program with which you can make a basic soundboard of your own. This program doesn’t support features other that adding jingle/audio files and play them individually.
Being a basic soundboard program, it has the simplest soundboard interface I tested so far. This standalone program opens up to display an interface with only a single option “File” and an Empty RED button tagged with number ‘0’ on its board.
At first glance I was pretty much confused that how this program will work. But when I right clicked on the board it displayed options to Add Button and Add Multiple Buttons. Now with the new buttons added, you can easily assign soundtracks to them but only audio files WAV format are added.
If you will right click on a button, you will see various options, which are: Select a new Song, Select a new text, Delete this button, Bind a key to this button and Show Index.
Now as you can easily make out what most of these option above can do, let me enlighten you about “Bind a key to this button” option. With this particular option, you can assign a key value (numeric value) to a button and by pressing that Key you can add a soundtrack (if empty) and play soundtrack without clicking it.
If you want, you can save the current soundtracks from the File option and Load a previously saved file too.
I would also like to tell you that this freeware has a bug too, that is if you cross the limit (41) of new added buttons, you cannot access them as the scroll bar feature is missing.
I will say that you can use this free soundboard software for creating a simple soundboard of your own even some other good soundboard software is not available or to learn to make a soundboard at beginner level. Home Page Download Page
Soundboard: powered by Flash Player
Soundboard is a free soundboard program that you can use to create a simple soundboard of your own. It requires a flashplayer to work.
You can use this free flash player powered soundboard program to add and play the audio files of your own choice; however the procedure is a bit complex and needs a little understanding.
As the interface of this freeware displays only 4 sample buttons by default with no other option to add any audio clip, it becomes a bit difficult to use it.
How to Add an Audio File to this soundboard:
- To add an audio file, first of all you need to copy the audio file to the original file folder (extracted) of Soundboard software.
- Open the config file in the notepad. There you will see sample of the sound file with info as: “Filename.ext|description|overlay|loop|volume ”
Copy and paste it in the last.
- Copy the name of the added audio file and replace the ‘filename.ext’ with it. Save the file.
- Restart the program and you will see that your audio file will be added in the interface.
Let me tell you this that the soundboard you create will be available as such the next time you open it. If you have to create a new soundboard, you have to remove the audio files from the soundboard folder and also make changes in the config file. In this way you can add up to 36 different audio files to the interface.
Each audio file is added with its respective numbering ordering. You can click on the number to start/stop the audio file. Multiple audio files can be played simultaneously by clicking at their respective buttons and you can choose some or all of them to play in Loop with their respective Loop buttons. A Stop AL button is also displayed to stop all the playing tracks along with a Master Volume slider option to slide and set the volume of all the audios being played.
You can use this freeware if you don’t find any other good soundboard software available, as it doesn’t have much features and the configuration process is a bit hectic too. Home Page Download Page
