Hi!
With 8 vmix calls often used in addition to external equipment, recording and mixer, is it possible to increase the number of external audio outputs?
It happens that I have to have more than 2 vmix calls on the same output and that causes me problems on the air (eg: I have to speak to a speaker who has just connected while the other person is already on the air)

Thank You!

@ Jef Berard (QUB)

Do you mean a talk-back channel as explained in this video:

Thanks but no, I already do that and it works well. :)
For exemple :
M = recording / streaming
A = to TV mixer
B to G = 6 outputs remaining for my 8 vmix calls or externals, it's too little for my needs.

(we are live on television and radio 12h a day, this requires preparation in advance without impacting the channels already used)

Why do you need a bus per caller?

vMix handles MixMinus internally so you don't need to worry about giving a dedicated bus to each caller unless there is something unique you're doing which requires each caller to have a separate audio feed?

While I agree that vmix needs more audio buses, you don't need to use it in the way it appears you are.

We are a live channel with nearly 60 guests or columnists per day, so while an interview is in progress, sometimes the tv manager must communicate with a guest who connects to vmix call to test certain things without disturbing the interview in progress.

its not the most elegant option but the busses are stereo you should be able to use two mono sources per buss.. which is 12 outputs..

Is there a reason you can't have a dedicated audio bus for your talkback microphone (say Bus B) and then switch the caller's audio source to Bus B on press, and back to Main on release, of a Streamdeck button?
