How to use the "listen" function of Windows properly
If you are like me and like to try every option your computer offers at least once, you probably already heard about or saw the listen tab every recording device in Windows (I think vista?? and later) has. Now what does this function do, how do we use it and why?
- Send the Audio of a Recording device to a Playback device (for example use the Line-IN to play music off your MP3 Player through your speakers or include it on stream)
- “Clone” the Audio output, if your Recording device receives Audio input of a playback device (Stereomix/AllYouCanHear devices)
Switch to the “Listen” Tab, activate “Listen to this device” and finally just select your desired Output device. (This can of course be any of your Playback devices you have available in Windows, but be sure to not create a “loop”)
