I have two headsets. One has a USB tip and the other has a standard mic out/stereo in. I have tried my darndest to get them both inputing audio simultaneously to little success. I have done all that business with enabling stereo mix and having this or that device "listen" for each other and whatnot. Hasn't really worked out. Is this even possible without extra hardware? I don't have a dedicated sound card but I have a pretty high-end gaming motherboard (Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0 AM3+).
My end goal is to be able to have two game commentators be able to use their mics and headphones simultaneously while also recording the in-game sound. What is the bare minimum requirements I need for this?
I read another thread that suggested a simple audio input splitter here. Is this the best option for recording two inputs to one track? What about if I wanted a dedicated track for each commentator?
