First, I'm using 32-bit Vista. It has 4Gb memory, on a Q8400 quad-core Core/2.
Here, I have a Plantronics Gamecom headset I want everything to come to. That works fine. I've also set the default Windows output to be the Virtual input of Banana. When I start a game (Spiral Knights), sound comes out my headphones just fine.
Inputs I have are:
- A1: LineIn (usually muted),
- A2: Plantronics' microphone (usually muted),
- A3: Unassigned (muted),
- Virtual: Game and computer sound (usually active),
- Virtual AUX: Auxiliary sound (web music, whatever else) (usually muted).
- A1: Headphones (WDM).
- A2/3: unassigned.
- B1: outputs for Skype/Mumble/other VOIP clients.
- B2: Network audio.
If I reduce the input volume for the music, that obviously reduces the volume for both the network stream and local. If I reduce the output volume on Bus A1 (headphones), then that reduces everything, not just the music. I did try setting up an A2 with a reduced volume also pointing to the headphones using a different output method (KS), but that setting gets ignored, even when I point the music directly at A2. In addition, my Settings and Options window shows this message:
Code: Select all
OUT A2: Failed to Open Output Device: KSWA_KS_Start:ksCreatePin returns error 1 (0x1).
