Oh the frustration!
So much to cover here! So confusing, but the gist of it: routing audio between apps in windows. Yeah yeah yeah, you Mac guys actually have something over on us!
Thanks to JBM for stopping by.
Here is the REAPER thread about this, note especially analogexplosions and kodebode’s posts! https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=218007
Thanks HUGELY for decades of work from Vince Burrell, VB-Audioware! That’s who makes Virtual Audio Cable and ASIO bridge mentioned on the show, as well as the ULTIMATE gaming streamer’s audio tool: Voicemeeter. https://www.vb-audio.com/
In case you were wondering why you didn’t hear audio when HiFi Cable was active in OBS, its because I hadn’t turned on “output and monitor” in advanced audio for that input in OBS, which brings me to another long, long rant that I am too tired to get into right now
