Hardware Input 1: My microphone
Aux: VoIP telephone
Vaio 3: an audio player to play in sound clips
I also want to control what audio channels get what output too. For example I don't want to hear my own voice, so I switch off A1, my earphones, for my microphone.
But I also want Skype to hear me, the audio clips, and the telephone, but not the Skype input because that would cause an echo.
For the telephone I want it to hear me and the audio clips. I would like to be able to switch reliably so that it can sometimes hear the input from skype, but not always, and I don't want to send it back its own audio, again to avoid echo.
The problem I have is that I can't seem to reliably send (and sometimes not send) the skype and phone audio to each other. I would be very grateful if someone could advice what the best settings might be.
In Windows 10:
- I have skype input and output to be the input and output from Vaio;
I have telephone input and output to be the input and output from AUX;
I have audio player output set to Vaio 3;
This is what I have for the outputs:
Also, I'm not clear what this horizontal fader and the M button does that appears for any running program. It seems to have some impact on levels but I can't work out what it is.
It would be great to get any suggestions. Thanks!
