I watched Dom’s excellent videos of the new dspMixFx features, especially the Loopback video. But I don’t get the difference between the modes.
Off → Only input is routed to DAW and video meeting software.
Live Cast → Mic inputs and all computer audio is routed to DAW and meeting software.
Voice Chat → Same as off? Because only mic inputs are routed to DAW and meeting software, right?
So what’s the difference between Off and Voice Chat?
What I’m missing is a hybrid. I’m teaching to game sound students. So I’m talking, they’re talking, and I need to send them my computer audio. Ideally without them getting the feedback / echo when they talk.
For this, the UR-C driver would have to know what software is sending audio to it. What software has set the UR-C interface as its output. And in the MixFx I should then pick the sources I want to send into the Loopback. This would allow me to send my mic and the DAW or game I’m showing to the feed, while not feeding my students or their audio back, creating echos and noise cancellations.
Sort of a mixer of virtual inputs of all softwares currently sending audio to the UR-C interface. It should detect those sources. And I as user could cherry pick what I want to route into the Loopback. This would be great.
Currently I need an extra software for that. On the Mac I use Loopback from Rogue Amoeba.
Would be great to add that as a feature request.
