The EarTrumpet utility certainly set the bar, and it took Microsoft five years to recognize it. Certain controls in the Windows operating system have been in need of improvement for a long time.

Microsoft did not officially announce the improved mixer in the Windows 11 test build, it is currently hidden. Those users who launched it note that the tool is quite convenient, but still inferior to EarTrumpet.
