ATC in Headset, Aircraft in Speakers?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,I find it annoying when I can't hear ATC over the sound of my engines. How can I get the engines to come out of my main speakers and ATC to come solely out my headset? Once I get over the hurdle of how to run both simultaneously, then how do I get each program to correspond to each output?Thanks for any help offered!Aaron.

I use two sound cards. FS through one and VATSIM ATC through the other. Works like a charm.Jim Harnes

As Jim says, two sound cards. If you can't cram a second sound card into your PC (or would just rather not), a USB headset is a great and easy alternative. Just be sure to configure SB or FSInn to direct your vox traffic to the second sound card / headset.

the best solution is to use two sound devices as reply in above. The most of mainboards has own sounddevices onboard. You need a additional sound card (you don't need to buy expensive one!). SB3/FSinn gives you chance to select soundcard for speaking(record) and listening(speakers).You can select them seperatly.But don't forget; onboard sound devices may effect on your computer's speed. So many computer guru says "do not use onboard devices for getting best performance of your hardware". I don't know it is true or not or how would be effect on speed, nanoseconds or any value? :) I'm using a sound card with onboard devices. Microphone connected on sound card, all speakers connected on onboard. As your wish, if you want to use advanced soundcard, I advise connect computer sounds to it, and use onbaord devices to speaking/listening ATC. (my sound card comes past century!! onboard chip newest than card:) )I didin't use USB sound devices before, so I don't have any idea.
