Setup a Mic with your ASIO audio interface

If your Mic comes not as a stand-alone USB device, but has to be connected to an audio interface with ASIO drivers, follow these 3 steps to setup VOICEMEETER:


Set Your Audio Interface as Output

Select your ASIO driver as Output A1.


Connect the ASIO Inputs
to Your VOICEMEETER Inputs

Your ASIO interface has several inputs.
Patch all of them or only the Mic input to VOICEMEETER´s input channel strips.

A. Open the VOICEMEETER “System settings/Options …” dialog.

B. Patch the Mic ASIO input of your interface to a VOICEMEETER input strip:
After step 1 the settings dialog presents the selected ASIO audio driver as A1 Main Output device.

Select the input number in the IN1 L/R fields (“PATCH ASIO Inputs to strips”).
If your Mic is connected to input 1 of your audio interface, simply choose “1”.

C. ASIO buffer settings:
Per default VOICEMEETER is using the samplerate (SR) and the buffer size of the audio interface. This is the best and most stable option, so you don´t need to change these settings.
Alternatively you can specify a different sample rate and/or a bigger buffer size.
Tip: Media should be played at their stored sample rate (e. g. 44.1 KHz for CD music).

You can connect (= route or patch) all the inputs of your ASIO interface to VOICEMEETER´s input strips. If you just want to use the input with your Mic, only patch the number of this input to the strip.


Route Your Mic to a Virtual Output

Route your Mic input to a Virtual Output (B1).
Turn on the Mono button on the input.

Your ASIO audio interface (e.g. RME Babyface PRO) usually comes also with MME/WDM drivers. To avoid device conflicts don´t use these MME/WDM (e.g. RME Babyface PRO MME/WDM) drivers on your input and output channels.
