SBZ Switcher - Automate Speakers/Headphones mode switching

this tool allows automated switching of Speakers/Headphones and more for Creative Sound Blaster Z-Series and Recon3D owners.
while the master volume and mute controls are handled in the OS level, the switching mechanism is on-screen
auto click based, thus is dependent on Sound Blaster Control Panel availability.
SBZ Switcher is synchronized with the Sound Blaster Control Panel via registry, to display current info and switch accordingly.

dunno if it's works for AE-5 series as the project stopped.

Edit: Seems Pax drivers for my card being dropped since April 10th, 2017..

I don't currently use headphones, although that would change were I to get into gaming again.

The 'external sound solutions' I mentioned are stand-alone. They are purported to be much higher quality than internal components are able to produce. The pricing is a bit more, but alleged to be worth the extra money. I'll give those a shot for the next machine I build (planned for the near future). I believe that the external solutions wont' work with analog speakers.

I did run back to pax and check...seems there is no support for the AE-5. If there were, I would likely try older PAX drivers anyway, since they may well surpass Creative's in quality and stability. For anyone trying this, I would recommend creating a system image before installing (Macrium Reflect Free is a good choice).

That said, I decided to try running SB Command again (I've been using SB Connect) and am thinking that they actually do sound better than the SB Connect. The SB Command employs the newest drivers.
