If you’re recording presentation or streaming video games, you probably looking ways how to output your audio to multiple playback devices. Specially if you’re using separate recording device like Elgato or other purpose.
If you have a Realtek audio powered motherboard, they have built in virtual input called Stereo Mix that you can enable and let you listen to the device and playback through other devices. However, I got problem with StereoMix as it won’t output sounds from my computer to the device.
The solution to this problem is using a third party program called Voice Meeter, it’s a free program and you can instantly use it when installed. This program let you output sound to two hardware out. Like playing your computer sound to your Headset/Speaker and to other devices. In my case, I want to output sounds to my Headset and at the same time I want to output the sound to my recording device (Elgato HD60s). VoiceMeeter will have no problem outputting sounds on both of your devices.
How to use Voice Meeter to Output Audio to Multiplay Playback Devices

2. Install the program and (optional) restart your computer.
3. Open the VoiceMeeter app, from here. On the upper Right corner Hardware Out. At the A1, select your first output device (Eg. Headset/Speaker). Then on the A2, your second output device (Eg. Elgato HD60 or other device).
