Title: X32 Live Stream output and computer input using the same computer?
Post by: Rob Haywood on February 26, 2021, 12:25:22 PM
Question, were using an x32 full console at our church which is configured to output a live stream via bus mixes 9/10 to a computer running OBS through X-USB. Then we're using the same computer at times to input audio back to the x32 via the card-1 X-USB into aux 1/2 inputs. The problem I notice is, when the band is playing and outputting audio via bus mixes back to the computer into OBS the computer returns the signal back to the x32 aux 1/2 inputs, so it duplicates. I can mute AUX1/2 when the band is playing, so that's ok, but what happens when the computer needs to feed the audio back to the x32 into aux 1/2 using the same computer running the stream?

It seems like it's going to duplicate since the x32 will receive the computer audio via the X-USB inputs, but the x32 needs to send the audio back from bus mix 9/10 back to the computer to live stream the computer audio. Is there a good way to handle this problem if using one computer to handle normal band OBS live stream, but then be able to play computer video audio back to the board that can be live streamed?

Tnx, Rob.

Yes - There are several ways.
You can send audio from computer to X32 and then send different channels to your livestream outputs.
Another scenario is if you maybe you have a Zoom meeting on the same computer, you can get audio from Zoom (maybe using virtual audio cable) and send it back into the PA. This is useful for Bible study getting questions from the Zoom gallery or getting interview audio back into the X32 where it can be routed to livestream.
