I want to use multiple applications such as teamspeak and Skype that allow me to select separate audio inputs/outputs from the system out. Note that I am on a mac.
I would like to take said audio inputs/outputs and send them to an external mixer, where I could then use the audio normally. preferably not converting to analog and back in the process.
My question is not a product recommendation, but rather a question about how audio interfaces appear to a computer.
I would like to be able to select pairs of channels on a multichannel interface and use them for each application. for example: pair 1/2 would be used for the inputs and outputs to Skype and pair 3/4 would be used for the inputs and outputs to teamspeak.
a final hope would be that I could use Dante connections for this, but it is a hope at best.
Note: I would be using this on gaming livestreams so i can separate my game audio from my friends on teamspeak and my own mic.
