2 Physical Connections to the sound cards Let’s assume you use a PC headset to DJ. Plug the microphone of your headset into Mic In on Card A (Skype – the Creative SB in this example). Plug the headphones of your headset into Speaker Out on Card B (SAM – NVIDIA nForce in this example). Run your patch cable (male to male 3.5mm stereo) from Speaker Out on Card A to the Mic In jack on Card B . SAM Configuration We’re using SAM 3.4.3 in the examples here. Open SAM. Click the Config button in the Voice FX window: Set Record driver to DirectSound recorder. Set Record soundcard device to Card B (SAM Card). Summary: When you hit the Mic button in the VoiceFX window, the feed comes from Card A (Skype). You are running your broadcast microphone through Card A (Skype), so your conversation and the audio coming in from your caller via Skype are pre-mixed into a single audio signal which is then passed to SAM through your patch cable to Mic In on Card B . If Skype drops, you only lose your caller. Your broadcast mic feed still works because it is passing directly through
