Multiple Sound Devices?

Recommended Posts

Hi,My new eDimensional AudioFX Pro headset just arrived this morning (a replacement for the original AudioFX one that I have managed to break) and the sound from it is excellent. However, I would like to have the sound coming from both the speakers and ALSO from the headset at the same time...Currently, I have managed to set it up so that when I unplug the USB headset the soundcard becomes the default device and plays the sound. When I plug the headset back it, it takes over. Is there a clever way of telling XP to use both at the same time?Better still, is it possible in FS (FS9 that is) to have both devices running but with different sound profiles? I would love to have ATC and a little cockpit sound on the headphones and mostly engine noise etc through the speakers... I saw a quote in the reviews section of the forum that suggested this but I'll believe it when I see (hear) itCheers,GeoffPS. This is a shameless double post - I have it in the other hardware forum here as well. Why are there two anyway!?

Thanks for the info. I found the article but unfortunately this is only works in FSX.In fact, it's even a little worse - it appears that I can't switch between the two devices with the sim running without problems!Geoff

I had a look but I don't see that it is able to play the same application through both devices at the same time... If I've got that wrong, please let me know how to do it.Geoff
