All right, what’s going on guys? Welcome back to another video. Today’s gonna be an updated tutorial, a video I did four months ago, roughly, where I was showing you how to stream like YouTube and Spotify and all that through your microphone. That video was good and it was well received, but it’s kind of outdated at this point because even uploading that video, when I did it, it was kind of outdated because the software I really relied on was Audio Router. And Audio Router is an outdated software and it really doesn’t work all that well because it’s a little, it’s old, three years old. And then it also adds another variable for confusion and breakage and just frustration if something goes wrong. So with this video today, we’re gonna cut out Audio Router. I’m just gonna go through the steps again. So if you already did watch that video, I’m gonna put a timestamp right here on the screen to tell you to skip, so you don’t have to use Audio Router and you can skip the whole installation process. So with that said, let’s get started. The first thing we’re gonna need to download is VoiceMeeter Banana. Run the exe from here, install that, and then also download the Virtual Audio Cable zip file from right here. So you’ll get two files. In this case, I have… This is what you’ll see. You’ll have a VB driver pack 43 dot zip, and you’ll have a VoiceMeeter Pro setup. Is it far right, click and extract it? And it should just give you a folder and VoiceMeeter Pro. We’re just gonna run that as administrator. And that runs as administrator. Make sure you install that. And then same thing goes for the Virtual Audio Cable. Run that as administrator. Then install that from there. It’s gonna ask you to reset your PC, but I recommend you wait until after the video’s over for that to completely work. But in this case, VoiceMeeter just crashed because I opened that up again. So anyway, from there, we’re gonna open up VoiceMeeter, like I just showed you or you just saw. You can do that from the recently added tab right here. It should be, like, in the top from when you just installed it. If it’s not there, it’ll be down in your list of programs under the V tab, VB-Audio, under VoiceMeeter Banana. If you don’t find it there either, you can go to the libraries tab and then go to your C drive program files x86, go a little bit down so you see VB, and then open that and then VoiceMeeter, and then you’re gonna want to find the VoiceMeeter Pro dot exe. This is the file you want to open if you’re gonna run VoiceMeeter. Man, this is the original VoiceMeeter. This is VoiceMeeter Banana. So from there, we’re gonna open up VoiceMeeter. This is what it looks like. It’s um, it’s pretty standard software if you’ve never used it before. But basically, you have three hardware channel inputs. You have your desktop audio, and then you have your hardware outputs. We’re just gonna configure this right away. It’s the hardest step. But anyway, hardware channel one, make sure that’s your microphone, whatever you’re using. You’re gonna make sure that you’re not using A1, and you’re only using B1. This is the virtual… or this is the output. So you’re gonna have your microphone sent to an output channel over here, which is this channel right here, and then your cable output, which is going to be your Virtual Audio Cable. Make sure that is checked, for A1 and B1, at least. If you do have more than one output device, like I say, a desktop set of speakers, you don’t want to have at least two checked so that you have your headphones on channel one, then your speakers on channel two. If you do have a third Virtual Audio Cable, you can use Discord here, but I do not have one for this video, so we will not be using it. This one is your desktop audio device. You do not want to send it to B1, as that’s going to be sending it to your microphone channel, which will then loop it back, and it’ll be very annoying and very unappealing. So we want the sound to go… on this to our headphones, which is A1, and then to our desktop speakers, which is A2. We’re not gonna be using VoiceMeeter Aux, so we’re just gonna uncheck all of those. And then underneath our headphone channels, like I said, set them up for what you’re using, and don’t be fooled by all these codecs. They all pretty much do the same thing. It’s just different ways of encoding the audio. If you do get static voices or robotic voices with one of these, just swap to another one, and it should go away. Then we’re gonna finish off in the top right here, go to Menu, make sure that you run it at system startup, and then under System Settings, make sure that you have it set to 44.1 kilohertz or 48 kilohertz. This really only matters for your sound settings, so we’ll just go through that in a second. I recommend that you just make sure that it’s the same as whatever your sound settings are using. So we’re just going to go through that right now. The right-click on your sound devices, go to Sounds, and then from here, make sure your playback devices are set at VoiceMeeter Input, and then make sure your speaker is whatever your main headphones are. For example, your… whatever, I’m using and I’m using this, Brin, go to our Properties, and we’re gonna go to the Advanced tab. Make sure it’s set at whatever you set it in VoiceMeeter. In my case, it’s 24-bit, 44.1 kilohertz. And then same thing goes for my speakers. If you do have more than one device, make sure it’s set at the same, 44.1 kilohertz. Cable input, make sure that’s set at the same, 44.1 kilohertz, and 24-bit. If you are using 16-bit, 44.1 kilohertz, that’s fine too. But in my case, we’re using 24-bit. You just want to make sure that they’re all the same. VoiceMeeter Input as your default device, and then go to the Advanced tab. Make sure that’s the same. Then we’re just going to do the same thing again in the recording settings. Your microphone, whichever that is, in my case here, Properties, Advanced, make sure this is stereo. You want to make sure it’s stereo because if your microphone is only one channel, that’s fine too. But I recommend if you have the option for stereo, go with it, even though it might be fake stereo. But anyway, two channels, 24-bit, 44.1 kilohertz. For me, Cable Output, this has to be stereo. There’s no exceptions. If it is not stereo, the audio will sound very, very bad. It’ll sound really flat and kind of muted. So two channels is a must. And then VoiceMeeter Output as your default device. What this means, this is correlating to the B1 channel here. So VoiceMeeter Output is B1, and VoiceMeeter Aux Output is B2. So VoiceMeeter Aux is the input channel. This is VoiceMeeter, push me to Aux input channel, and VoiceMeeter Input channel. And then these are these two channels right here for the output channels. Make sure that’s that is your default device within Properties. Go to the Advanced tab and make sure two channels are set up for that, and it’s the same Hertz ratio as whatever you set up
