Help... Newbie. purchase recommendation

Post by cashtigergg »

Hi Everyone,
I am new to streaming and making videos. I started streaming on Twitch and want to make YouTube videos in the near future. I am on Windows 10 and am using a Bose QuietComfort 35II headset/mic. When I stream I have game sound (low volume) Discord (main sound) with my voice and team mates voices and Pretzel Rocks music in the background. I tried using Soundtracks by Twitch and every stream I got something different and the sound was horrible each time. It seemed somehow to change the track settings in OBS and if I didn't go back and change them the sound would be a total wreck and my VOD trash... So, I changed to Pretzel Rocks and its much better but. What I need is something that will set the different voices coming in from Discord to a desired set level, music to a desired set level (some songs seem to be louder than others) and set the game to the desired set level. I really don't know what I need to make the YouTube videos as far as sound goes so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I googled for days and found everything pointing to either VB Banana or VB Potato and VB virtual cables. What would you recommend to this old newbie trying to get something to set up and have it work each time without having to reconfigure everything each time? Thank you so much in advance...

Hi. You could try VoiceMeeter Potato (Which provides 3 virtual inputs and 3 virtual outputs). One virtual input could be used to get audio from Discord, the other to get music and the last one to capture game audio. The user manual (https://vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/Voicem ... Manual.pdf) is a very useful resource and there a lots of tutorials on YouTube that explains how to use it.

Please let us know if you need any additional help.
