perhaps consider running  a DANTE service on both machines, then use audinate's DANTE controller to route them to each other. DANTE is a pretty big commercial multicast protocol. though, this is multicast, and may cause some network saturation issues if you're not careful.

you can use either DANTE VIA or DANTE virtual soundcard.

It really doesn't. Thats how things work already. What is your actual question? Like do you want to send audio over the network to another PC which uses it for Discord input?

 

Easier would be to have mic with headphone jack (monitoring) and use that as mic input on 2nd PC.

 

E: Threads merged. Don't post multiple times about same thing.

It can be done easily with Voicemeeter Banana.

Note: It's donationware, so you don't have to pay for it, but if you find it useful then it's worth donating something.

 

Voicemeeter includes a tool called VBAN. This is what you need.

 

Before you start:

Make sure your PCs have a static/reserved IP. Easiest way is to keep them as DHCP and use your router to reserve an IP for both (based on MAC address)

You can get it to work without this step, but if your PC is allocated a different IP after a reboot then you'll need to reset the VBAN settings each time (step #7 #9).

 

Set it up to work:

01) Make a note of your PC IPs (e.g. PC1: 192.168.0.111  PC2: 192.168.0.222)

02) Install Voicemeeter on both PCs and ensure it's set to start on Windows start-up (Menu | System Tray (run at startup)).

03) On both PCs assign A1 to use desktop speakers (VM sometimes won't work right until there's at least one output defined). Mute A1 in "Master Section" if needed.

image.png.43d0c71b7f155a6bef599b8fe20be0dd.png

04) Enable Voicemeeter on both (click "VBAN" then click "VBAN is OFF" to change it to "VBAN is ON")

PC #2

05) On PC2, assign Hardware Input#1 to be your USB mic. Talk into it and you should see the audio visualisation rise and fall with your voice (see example at the bottom of this post)

06) In Hardware Input #1, enable only the B2 button. Talk into the mic and you should see the B2 visualisation (in Master Selection) also rise as you talk.

07) Go back into VBAN and switch on the first Outgoing Stream, Use BUS B2 and give it a Stream Name. Something descriptive like USBMIC or your PCName

      As VBAN is running on on both PCs, right click the "IP Address To" and it should automatically find PC1's IP for you. If not type it manually.

e.g.

image.png.13ba2ee7e554e85254403614dfb575de.png

 

PC#1

08) On PC1 open up the VBAN interface and switch ON the first row of Incoming Streams.

09) Once ON, just RIGHT CLICK the "Stream Name" or "IP Address From". This will pop up PC2's VBAN details automatically. Click to auto-apply it

10) Now that's populated, make sure that the Destination is: In #1 (default I think). You can close the VBAN window now.

11) Talk into the mic and you should see the visualisation move on PC#1 Hardware Input #1

12) On Hardware Input #1, only activate B2

13) Talk into the mic and you should see both Hardware Input #1 and B2 visualisation (in Master Selection) rise as you talk.

14) The last bit. In Discord, set the output to be Voicemeeter AUX (this is what B2 equates to)

image.png.b16725ab8dcc76816238ef1877fe8713.png

 

That's it. It should work. As you talk in Discord you should see your icon glow as Discord can hear you.

 

Note: We're using B2 ("AUX") for voice as it's best practise to set the mic on a secondary audio channel so that, if you also have desktop audio, then this separates your mic from that. It'll be useful later on if you want to do streaming or mix audio from multiple sources. At least this bit is set up right :)

 

If your discord buddies say they can hear game audio or your music then just make sure B2 is only active on Hardware Input #1 and it should be fine.

 

Screenshot example for step #6
