Simple but effective typewriter sounds


I wanted to share this very simple way to add the sound of a typewriter as you type. I find it is an aid to concentration and just sounds nice!

The sounds can be found here (but any wav files could be used)

In the example below, I saved the sounds I liked to a folder I created called C:\Sounds

(The tilda before the hotkeys means that the key still works in addition to the sound being played.)

~0::SoundPlay, C:\Sounds\Key 2 press.wav

~BackSpace::SoundPlay, C:\Sounds\Backspace press.wav

~Space::SoundPlay, C:\Sounds\Space bar press.wav

~Enter::SoundPlay, C:\Sounds\New Line 2.wav
