  1. i want the voice to come to my headset which is a mic combo, but i dont think that matters too much.
  2. is this possible or am i just dreaming?
  3. Its possible,
    Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound > Sound, then select your "Headsets", configure them and set as default.
  4. I only want voice though.. I want game and music and all other to cone from speakers
  5. I don't think that's possible,you have to use either the headset or speakers
  6. it is possible but i was told i need to get a USB headset so i will do that.
  7. I currently have a USB headset, and i have to choose either my speakers or my headset in the control panel.I can't choose both.
  8. its not a control panel thing, it would be in the setup of the program such as Ventrilo, i would choose where i hear the sound, in the default , speakers , or usb drive.

    If the program supports selecting a different sound output then the windows default, you CAN do this; For example, my primary output device (at the moment) is the HDMI output of my 4890, but when using teamspeak, I have it configured to output all its audio to my Logitech G35 instead.
  10. Right,i forgot HDMI, its possible to it with HDMI output in some apps/games.(However haven't tried it myself)
  11. ^^ Not even with HDMI; I know for a fact you can do this with other outputs as well. I used to do optical out to my surround system (prior to moving to 7.1 and getting a TV; using the soundcard introduced lag into the system...).

    As long as the program gives the option to use a non-default sound output, its doable. Whether there are any software conflicts...thats another story.
  12. Oh i see, thanks for clarifying
  13. The worst I ever did was using 3 sound devices at the same time (ASUS Xonar, HDMI output on my 4890, and output on my G35. I was using three instances of a program to measure how much delay was on each specific device, by comparing against eachother.).
