  1. Possible to run 2 instances of the same app while using a different audio output with each?


    I know that Windows 10 has a setting where people can select which audio output device is used for which app. I'm wondering if it's possible to run 2 instances of the same app for example, a video game and have each instance output its audio to a different source. Specifically, the scenario I'm dealing with is that I'm trying to run a game on my PC, with 2 Xbox controllers connected, and each player has their own sound for the game.

    While running both instances, if I go into Sound Settings -> App volume and devices preferences, then scroll through the list, I did indeed see an entry for each instance of the game that's currently running. However, changing the audio output for one of them affects both.

    :)

  2. No Audio Output Device is Installed

    Hi,

    You will need to select Windows 8 from the drop down list while installing the driver in compatibility mode.

    I would suggest you to try setting the speaker as default audio output by following the steps below and check if it helps.

    1. Right click on the sound icon on the right bottom corner of the taskbar.

    2. Select "playback devices".

    3. If "speaker" is not set as the default device, highlight it and click "set as default".

    5. Save the changes.

    Let us know the result.

  3. Audio Input/Output Issues

    Hey all!

    Today is the 2nd day with my new computer that I built and I am having some issues with audio. I am running a gigabyte motherboard- which is great btw. BUT, I have 2 separate outputs for a microphone and audio. Is it possible that I can use my earbuds/headphones that have a mic on them? I don't know if I can set that up or if the microphone data can be run through the audio line. Anybody have any programs/suggestions?

    Help much appreciated!
