    I have a short question.
    You say that I need to use the Stereomix but can’t use the independent output in the front panel. But when I use the redirection there is no split of the outputs left and the whole tutorial doesn’t work anymore… :(

      Sorry I mean the streaming tutorial this belongs to. The “how to exclude…”

      • RobinJack0r says:

        I am actually not sure I understand you completely. You activate the “Make front and rear output devices playback two different streams…” so you can send the sound from your back ports to the front port using the stereomix (activate listen to in the stereomix and select the front output). Your recording software should be set to still use the back ports but the software you want to exclude should be configured to use the front port.
        Your headset or speakers would be connected to the front, so you can hear everything, but in some cases you have to connect an old headset to the back port, so it stays active.

    I’ve been trying this for a while and I have a question: Would this work if you’re using USB headphones and mic? I couldn’t get it to work, so I guess it’s a no, but I wanna check.

    • RobinJack0r says:

      Yeah, the stereomix mostly comes with Soundcards and some onboard devices. It sometimes called “All you can hear” on Creative devices I think. But most USB Headsets, to my knowledge, dont have such device. In this case you would have to use VAC or VB-Cable as the main device and send your sound to the Headset from there. (I assume you want to exclude some sound off your recording/stream?

      • Dos says:

        Exactly, I want to record without the music I’m playing going into the video. I do have a sound card, but my speakers are broken and I’m always using the USB headset.

        I guess I’ll try VAC/VB-Cable, then. Thanks!
