As a novice streamer and content creator with a strong interest in computer hardware and software, it is interesting to solve common problems in this community. Audio issues are a common problem among broadcasters. However, you do not need expensive tools to fix them.

An advanced audio mixer

Some streamers prefer to use different peripherals to record their personal commentary and gameplay session. It is often difficult to bring those audio sources such as microphones, headsets and capture cards together in one application. For these users, Voicemeeter is one of the better solutions.

This advanced virtual audio mixer lets you select the hardware inputs and makes it possible to redirect them to a certain hardware output. There are three different hardware inputs with corresponding controls to redirect to three individual audio outputs indicated with A1, A2, and A3. This makes it possible to use different microphones or headsets at the same time. Perfect for podcasts.

Control your audio levels

The sliders below the different hardware allow you to change the volume of these individual devices. The mute button makes it possible to temporary mute one of the inputs. Use the A1, A2 and A3 buttons to redirect your audio to the required audio outputs. Depending on the version of Voicemeeter, you have more or less hardware inputs.

Besides the different hardware inputs, you can also use virtual input such as a voice chat application. This is helpful for streamers who enjoy to include a co-streamer. These virtual inputs can also be redirected to the preferred audio output. Voicemeeter supports different audio drivers.

Different types of users

Voicemeeter is an advanced and multipurpose virtual audio mixer designed to meet the requirements of different types of users. Podcasters, game streamers, content creators or musicians benefit from the features of this application.

This audio mixer lets you control and optimise the sound settings beyond the limitations of the operating system. There are different versions of Voicemeeter available with two, three or five hardware inputs. These advanced software solutions are build to be as convenient as possible.

Use the audio mixer in the streaming software

Once you have redirected the required audio inputs to the audio output of your stream, you have to select this audio device in the settings of the streaming software. Remember, you do not need to select the hardware or virtual inputs. These are redirected to a single output in the audio mixer application.

Voicemeeter is one remarkable piece of software for streamers and content creators who enjoy to record their entire gameplay sessions with a clear voice commentary. The ability to control the audio levels of the different devices in one application is useful. Recording the correct audio levels is the required for podcasters, broadcasters and streamers.
