Trying to split my audio between headset and speakers. Help needed.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I seem to be confusing everyone I ask so I'm going to try to explain this to the best of my ability.

What I am trying to do get all of my in game sound to come through my headphones while still being able to listen to music through my speakers. I'm trying to set up a stream for the first time and I don't want all my noise coming through, but I still want them to be able to hear me and my music if I decide to play some.

I have Titanium HD sound card if that helps out anyone to help me configure the settings.

Thanks!

IDK what your speakers are, so IDK what type of connectors it uses, but assuming it uses a standard 3.5mm cable, then all you need is a Y splitter.

You'll need two sound devices to split games and music to separate speakers/headphones. Titanium + Onboard for example would do it. Get a music player that can select a non-default sound device (Foobar, JRiver) and set that to play on one device, set the other device as default (games and mic). I don't think what you want is possible with only one sound device.
