Multiple output question

Post by Rusty Gunz »

I want to use either Voicemeeter, Voicemeeter Banana or Voicemeeter Potato - which ever is the most appropriate - to send all PC sounds to both
a) the HDMI port of my MB and
b) the 3.5 mm outputs of my MB

This is my setup:
1. Vizio soundbar (Dolby 5.1 configuration) connected to the MB HDMI port
2. Stereo speakers w/SW (2.1 configuration) connected to the 3.5 mm MB outputs via splitter
3. Buttkicker connected to the 3.5 mm MB outputs via same splitter

I want to have surround sound from the soundbar (for MSFS 2020) along with Buttkicker functionality. I turn off the soundbar when not simming and I turn off the stereo speakers when I am simming. Buttkicker is not necessary when using the stereo speakers, their SW output is sufficient.

With the standard Windows setup, I have either:
a) Buttkicker with soundbar but no surround sound or
b) Soundbar with surround sound but no Buttkicker

The a) and b) options are determined by which playback device is the Default. I get a) when the speakers are the default and b) when the soundbar is the default.

Can one of the Voicemeter versions resolve this for me? If so, which one and how should I configure it?

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
