Hi All -

I'm setting up my vMix installation as follows:
* Local computer has 1 host (me), co-host calls in via vMix call. May have guest on second call-in.
* I'm using the RodeCaster Pro essentially as a mixer and sound effects playback tool. Will record shows on vMix computer

I'm confused about the different audio busses in vMix and how I can best utilise these. I'm guessing that I would use the headphones bus to monitor everyting including the audio generated by vMix for the caller audio, audio inputs from the RodeCaster, etc - vMix would create mix minus for each of the vMix callers, so no issues there I assume.

However I'm not sure if headphone is the right audio bus to use for vMix in this scenario. Also, I'm unsure of how to map the headphone bus to an audio output on the vMix computer - I have a sound card that has the usual green headphone/speaker jack, but not sure if there are better ways to monitor audio from vMix. I was thinking about monitoring headphones via the RodeCaster with the USB returned audio, but that creates echo and looping problems at least in the tests I have done so far.

Thanks very much for any ideas/notes on this -

Nothing wrong with using the (green) Line-out from your built-in soundcard, although best to make sure it's not assigned for any other purpose (eg as the Default Windows Playback Device in the general Windows sound settings). Then select the soundcard output as the output for the Headphones in the Settings-> Audio Outputs panel, as pictured.
