FS#8353 - Sound settings save and load

I have an iaudio x5 that I go from listening on headphones to a home system, and it’s a pain to manually change settings (or at least load the correct settings file). I was thinking it would be easy and efficient to have a “save sound settings” option in the sound settings menu, and a “load sound settings” to recall the settings without screwing up other stuff that may have been changed since the last sound settings save.

Closing all feature requests.

We already have this for theme settings, but then, where does it end?

You can always save a config file and edit it by hand to include only the settings you want to change.

well, I would have no problem adding this, true we have theme settings, we also have recording and radio settings, and imho making sound settings easy to split would be more useful than the latter two.

I think having too many “Save X settings” features scattered about in menus are bad. Maybe we can come up with a better way… for example a “Save modified settings” that would only save non-default settings so a user could create any kind of sound/theme/radio/whaterver config by:

1) saving settings
2) resetting
3) changing to what the preset will have
4) using “Save modified settings” 5) reloading settings saved in step 1

a bit more work to create a preset but much more flexible.

i dont think its really a problem yet, but we could add a menu to do it properly:
manage settings > save setting >
- all settings
- sound settings
- theme settings
- recording settings
- radio settings
