I have been struggling trying to figure out how to maintain a full duplex audio connection (with video of course) that does not have audio ducking or some form of audio drop-out when two people are talking simultaneously. I am told there is no audio ducking in vMix call, and I have tried both Chrome and Firefox but the effect remains. I host a stream with three remote co-hosts, and when they are speaking individually, the audio sounds great, but when there is any overlap, it tends to drop out and/or be inaudible. I just purchased the 4K version of the software and am desperate for a way to fix this. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

You can try beta.vmixcall.com and tell them to turn off echo cancelation. They should then wear headphones.

What you are hearing is mix minus and without it, you would hear an awful echo when 2 callers speak at the same time and they have speakers.

vmixcall uses webRTC. To increase the stability video and sound you can try to offer them a SRT ingest (Ports need to be configured). SRT is one way communication. You can share them a webRTC audio feed as a return. If they need a video as well you may want to send out an SRT feed to them in addition.
With SRT you are off of the browser and the limitations coming from this.

All of my hosts are using headphone.mic.mixing board setup. I have engineered their setup for the appropriate mix-minus configuration.

I'll try the beta and see if that resolved the issue. Thanks for the input.

The most important selling point of Vmix for me was this ability to bring in remote hosts and guests with a full duplex, non-audio ducking audio/video connection. I am hoping someone who uses vMix/vCall currently has this functionality in use and can offer guidance on how to get there.
