So, enjoying the crisp tactility of my clickies (Box Whites) for 3 years now I was not really into keyboard and switch sounds until very recently.
In general, I simply ignored most sound test posts on r/mk.
However, a few weeks ago, as I edited the Keyboard Builders' Digest, the sheer number of typing tests appearing on the sub somehow raised my attention for the first time.
Especially the list format: having all of the typing tests on a single page and thus being able to play them in short succession. To pause them and play them as I wish to taste the different sounds. Displaying multiple typing tests on the same interface made the comparison really simple.
A sound/keyboard sound database with metadata, search and comparison function.
- data sheets / metadata
- videos start when the typing begins (no talking)
- permalink to search results
- permalink to comparison pages
- starting with about 80 entries
How to use it
You can simply browse the videos, search for specific terms in the database, put them on a list for later comparison or watch them next to each other with all the relevant metadata displayed on a single interface.
Select videos for comparison by pressing the [+] icons all over the pages. Press the comparison button to see them displayed on a single page.
That's it, I hope some of you'll find this useful.
P.S.: Many thanks to the educated people out there putting all the details in the video description and not expecting me to watch a 30 min build video to figure out the specs. THANK YOU!!
