If you were a fan of the mechanical keyboard sounds and would like to experience them on your PC keyboard – try Mechvibes. It is a free app that lets you play mechanical keyboard sounds as you type on your computer keyboard. Also, the sound from keyboard key presses is known to irritate some – especially those who suffer from Misophonia. Michvibes is a simple app that lets you define and play mechanical keypress sound as you type your current keyboard. It’s more like a membrane or mech key with any kind of switch.
Play mechanical keyboard sounds as you type
If you are looking for a way to make your keyboard make sounds when you type in Windows 10 then you are sure to like Mechvibes.
The app is large in size to some extent, measuring about 44.5 MB in size. When you download the app and run it, the main window of the app shows up.
Its interface appears quite simple with only a few options.
By default, the app is set to CherryMXBrown – PBT Keycaps. Also, that’s the only sound currently available. We would like the maker of the app to add some more options in the future.
There’s a volume slider that allows you to set the volume of the sound. The default sound is set to 20. The minimum sound limit is 0 and the maximum sound limit is 100.
You can choose any number between these limits by simply sliding the bar to the desired level.
Lastly, there’s a ‘Pause’ button that stops the sound when you hit it. Again pressing the button changes the behavior and allows you to listen to the sound.
All in all, it’s a handy app, but it has one shortcoming is that users have no option to change the default sound. However, additional sound sets are coming out, soon.
You can download it here from its homepage.
It’s open-source, completely free to use. and currently supports the following platforms -Windows, Mac, Linux, 64-bit edition. The mobile version for Android and iOS will be out soon.
TIP: You can also make your keyboard sound mechanical using ClicKey.
