How do I get audio from one computer to another?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello!

I have a very nice audio mixer that works very well. However, my computer doesn't have a headphone input, but is powerful enough for recording and streaming.

My 2nd laptop that isn't very powerful but does have a headphone input has the audio mixer plugged into it.

 

Is there any good, low-latency way to send the audio from the 2nd laptop to my main laptop over Wi-Fi or ethernet?

 

Thanks in advance!

Not that I know of.

 

I find it hard to believe your computer doesn't have an audio port though... have you checked on the back?


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

It is a laptop, and there is no headphone input anywhere, just a headphone out. It is weird.

Have you tried bluetooth

How would I do that? What software would I use to have a Bluetooth virtual output and input?

It sounds like a good solution, I just need to find the software.

No modern computer has headphone/speaker IN. They either have mic in or line in (which are pretty much same thing in modern audio mixing, at least in Windows). Laptops use combo jack, it has both headphone out and mic in. You can get splitters which will separate the two. Windows will treat the two different signals as separate.
