I recently bought a mixer (Yamaha MG10XU) to go with my headphone/mic combo. I'm basically wondering how would one go to have a following setup.

Right now Windows is using multi track thanks to Voicemeeter Potato (So that I can manually change the volume of let's say, browser, music, audio communication).

Voicemeeter Potato setup

To that I have a analog mixer in USB to take the microphone sound into the pc.

However what I would like to do is to take care of all that on a mixer only.

But the main wall I keep hitting is that basically I think I would need a mixer with at least two output track (since I don't want the mic sound to be mixed with everything else when talking).

So ideally it would be :

  • One track with only the mic sent to the pc (and potentially also routed to other output track
  • One track that would take whatever input I give (basically mimicking what Voicemeeter currently does) and send it to my headphones or speakers (to my choosing).

Only thing I found so far would be something like the Soundcraft Signature 22 MTK, but I don't know if there is a better solution out there

If anyone could give me pointers on how one could achieve this I would be really grateful (or if it's not realistic too)

  • Thanks for your input @Mark Ididn't look too much around digital mixer because they seem pricier, but is there no way to handle that with an analog one ? – PeterFour Mar 14 '20 at 18:33
  • you're unlikely to find an analogue mixer with multichannel digital interface unfortunately. – Mark Mar 15 '20 at 1:53
