Our situation is that sometimes for a wedding or funeral service, we have a request to play recorded music as part of the service. Our CCLI licence allows us to do this in the service, but it would not be allowed to be included in what we put out to a YouTube stream so that family and friends in other countries can watch (YouTube's monitors tend to block such things and could potentially block us for general use). We also make a local recording of the service which I can put on a DVD should the family want one. We usually mute the stream sound (with an apology!) for the duration of the music, but I would like the recording to be complete, without the mute.

Our problem is that, as far as I can see, the same video/audio is used to feed both streaming and recording. and cannot be separated (we currently use VMix HD). Is there a way we can either separately handle the audio that goes to streaming and recording or to selectively mute the stream?

Any help would be appreciated. We are considering an upgrade to VMix 4k for the PTZ functionality and I see that mentions multiple outputs and recording, but its not clear what these might do for our problem.

Hello. With Vmix 4k/pro you can go full live stream from output1 and from output2 to exclude the copyrighted audio or anything else by use of an audio bus that is something that maybe will work and now in your HD version. But for now you can try this and see if it works for you
1.Go to vmix settings-->Audio Outputs-->and enable an Audio Bus for example bus A.
2. Go to Audio Mixer and to your main audio that you want everywhere to be, you must select M and A.
3. Go to Audio Mixer and to your copyright music press Audio Button to be Green but here M button (Master Audio) has to be off and A Button has to be on
4.Go to recorder and select in the Audio-->instead of Master the BusA so you will record every audio source that has enabled the bus A instead of Master Audio that in your occasion, it will not include the copyright music
Now in your main output/youtube will go everything except the copyright music. Be sure in every audio source you want to be included in your record file to go to it`s audio
mixer and select BusA or any other bus audio you enabled to use for this scenario
