winamp sound output

Q: winamp sound output

im wondering if its possible using winamp to play music and be able to record that song without using a mic.
what im trying to do is broadcast over msn to someone some music from winamp but i want the quality to be better than with a mic.
is there an addon to winamp that does this or is it in windows somewhere?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello! Just as a disclaimer this is the first time that I've used this cite, so I apologize in advance for any informalities, or just overall dimwittedness. So for starters, I am not a technologically illiterate person, having been a computer user for the majority of my life. My current set up is the Levovo Y50 gaming laptop, (i'll include the specs below) which is running windows 8.1. So let me explain the situation to you; I have an hdmi output to my monitor, which is being used to transmit audio and video to my external speakers, which are connected to the aux imput on my monitor. So essentially, i never both the intergrated speakers and touchscreen display on the laptop itself, rather I use the audio output to my speakers and the video output to my monitor. However, occasionally, when I hop on skype or use spotify, I feel the need to use my PC headphones, which are the razer kracken headset, which has an integrated microphone, and therefore is connected to one sole port on the laptop itself. Basically, when I choose to use the headphones as an audio output, I go to the playback devices under sound management, and change the default communications and default device to the newly-plugged in headphones, which is listed under the playback devices as the standard "SPEAKERS - REALTEK HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO DEVICE" which, I presume is the output for the laptop itself.

A:Solved: No output to headphones - even though sound manager shows an output

1 Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2 re your disclaimer - no need for any apologies, but your post is a little difficult to read, we would have been better with separation of the main points by paragraph spacing. However I think I have the situation
3. Lets start with the basic possible causes.
4. I do not know that monitor but the jack for the speakers is connected to the audio from HDMI input is it the 3.5mm just in case there is another jack socket
5. Please see screenshot and check levels
as if volume is right down there will of course be no sound
6. I cannot understand why the headphones are shown as the Realtek speakers they are I thought usually shown as second ouptut

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-890GPA-UD3H (rev. 3.1)

(Note 3) Simultaneous output for DVI-D and HDMI is not supported.

What I'm trying to do is output just my sound to the receiver via HDMI cable, but still use the DVI to my monitor for video. From the note above taken from the MB specs, sounds like this is not possible.

This is new business to me and wondering how others do this, seems little information I can find. I am ordering a HDMI to DVI cable so I can disconnect the DVI cable from the computer and instead run both video and sound through HDMI to the receiver, then the video to the monitor. Hoping this works.

If all fails then I am relegated to separate digital through S/PDIF optical link, to my receiver. According to the experts this is less than ideal since now, the multi-channel dolby and DTS signals can only be received via HDMI.

Wondering if I get a Blu-ray player for my computer how this is going to all work out. Hoping that HDMI to DVI cable does the trick.

Anyone with experience with this kind of set-up and the aforementioned hardware greatly appreciated.

And Happy NEW YEAR!

A:Gigabyte HDMI output to Yamaha receiver - no sound output

As you have a separate video card, its capabilities should determine how the video works, not the motherboard. The video is routed to the video card.

If you had some type of integrated Video on the motherboard then the motherboard's specs would apply. For example, I have an Intel i7 3770 CPU and this model has built in Intel HD4000 video which is routed to motherboard video connectors and thus the motherboard would determine how the video is distributed. However, I'm using a separate video card and thus that determines how video is distributed.

I turned on my machine today and the sound didn't work. The usual IM sounds were gone and any sounds from the browser, like youtube videos and stuff are no longer working. So I tried playing a song in winamp and it gave me an error about something like "a device...." (forgot the whole thing). I googled around and got a fix. I went to Preferences in Winamp, Plug-Ins > Output, and there I selected "DirectSound output v2.46 [out_ds.dll]"

Winamp started working but everything else still doesn't make sounds. When I went to control panel to check sound settings, it told me that MMDRIVER.INF was missing so I googled around for it's code, and made my own which I put in the System32 folder. Then the Sound settings in the Control Panel no longer gave me the mmdriver.inf missing error. The settings show my AC97 card and everything, and "Place a volume icon in TaskBar" is also checked, though the icon is now missing.

I went into device manager and saw no errors there.

What to do?

I can play music for awhile with no problem then all of a sudden winamp stops playing and won't play again until I reboot. I am using the newest version of winamp and have a built in sound card on my motherboard that uses the sis 7018 audio driver. I also have the updated driver. Any idea what could be causing this?

Thank you very much for the forum :)
I would need your help because a friend of mine often uses his webcam with me and other friends, he plays mp3 he likes with Winamp or Windows Media Player (he uses both) to make us listen them.
Until yesterday the sound was perfect. But he changed his OS into windows XP (he had windows 7 before, but had problems) and now we hear the songs with an horrible crackling sound. But he has a perfect sound on his pc, only us who are receiving his webcam image and sound have the problem.
He tried to make changes in the sound properties but it doesn't change anything, the sound is still horrible. He has no mic on his webcam so it seems not to be because of the webcam mic !
So we would need your help, because it is really difficult to find what happens :(
Thank you very much in anticipation,

When I try to listen to Winamp, I get the error message: DirectSound output v. 2.42 d (error)
Bad DirectSound driver. Install proper drivers or select another device in configuration. Error code:88780078. I share this computer with two other people; both say they have not removed or altered any programs. I can hear Limewire but not the internet. Is there some way to download this driver on the internet? What could've happened here?

A:Directsound Error; No Sound From Winamp

You could have become infected with something downloaded from Limewire.

P2P aps are the largest source of system infection there is.

Do you know exactly when this problem began?
If you do, or know a date that you are pretty certain you didn't have this problem I would recommend that you use Windows System Restore to return your system back to a non-infected system state condition.

Click on start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore.
Open the system restore wizard, pick a date before your system exhibited problems, and restore your system.

After restoring your system, or if you are unable to restore it, update your anti-virus ap and run it from safe mode.

I don't know what it is. The sound on my computer cuts out when Firefox or winamp are being used to their fullest. Or anywhere near it. If I open up a bunch of flash videos in Firefox, there's a chance the sound could stop. If I play videos in winamp too much, there's a chance the sound could stop. Let me clarify that this is not the "typical" Winamp. I have two versions. They're both free, but the secondary one is on my second HD and deals only with videos. The primary one on the master drive deals with music. While this sound stopping problem has happened with the primary version, it's a lot more likely with the secondary.

The sound can be fixed, however, by putting the computer into sleep (standby) mode and waking it back up.

Of course, that temporary solution isn't enough. I want a permanent one, or semi-permanent.

My computer stats -
Windows XP w/Service Pack 3

I don't know if you guys need any more info to help me along, but if you ask, I'll happily provide it. Thanks in advance for your help.

I am getting a laptop. Right now I am deciding between regular "High Definition Audio 2.0" and a "ExpressCard Sound Blaster X-Fi Laptop Sound Card with Wireless Receiver Bundle". The latter is 134 dollars more. Would the latter make the output of sound better on external speakers. Say if you're a DJ, and you use the laptop, would the sound coming out of the speakers at those high volumes be much better if you have the better soundcard? Or does it not have any effect on the output sounds? Thanks!

It's the most suspicious sound I've ever heard. It sounds exactly like fat, felt tip marker making a quick check on paper. It can also be compared to a rat sniff or a piece of paper being turned. I wear headphones and can hear this noise occasionally for up to 15 minutes. It likes to happen at night, when 'they' are active ( humor me ). Because of the sneaky, low volume, discreet, low down, creepy, stalky, shifty sound I am disposed to imagine that someone is looking through my files for credit information and they are unaware of these sounds from my sound card, or they don't care about the sound because they are safe from being caught.

Sound like I'm crazy? Just paranoid. I did say it makes me imagine. The kind of person I am is the same kind that will run system restore at a moment's notice for anything that looks suspicious or a NoScript violation. Because that sound is clearly designed to resemble a sniffing rat doing something sneaky on my computer. I tried to record the output with Audacity 1.3, but it had stopped before I had recorded anything.

My setup:

Windows XP Pro 64 bit Service Pack 2
Verizon High Speed Internet
Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
LinkSys Router routing to a Windows 7 laptop, WPK-PSK, TKIP
Soundblaster Live!

A:Solved: Suspicious sound coming from sound card output.

It was that Windows XP search dog. When you ctrl + f to open the search side bar in a window there is an animated dog that seems innocuous. Every 15 minutes or so it will scratch itself and make that noise twice. As long as that search side bar is open, minimized or not, that noise will persist.

Hi there this isn't really for me - I Ient my girlfriend's old computer to a friend and he's been experiencing problems with sound.

When using winamp sometimes after a while the sound stops working. But winamp appears to not actually be playing songs. Like you'll click a song and equaliser bars go flat and don't measure sound like when a song is playing with the bass/treble or whatever going up an down with regards to what's happening in the song.

So it's not like the song is playing and no sound is coming out - the song is refusing to play. This problem is worse when playing pro evolution soccer on mute with winamp in the background.

He says when he's playing COD2 that the sound stutters and does it with increasing frequency and then eventually stops. This mostly happens when there's a lot happening on screen.

Restarting the whole machine seems to sort it out with regards to winamp but sometimes just restarting call of duty fixes the sound issues.

I remember having similar problems with operation flashpoint about 7 years ago but can't remember how I sorted it.

He has:

windows xp home SP2
p4 3.0ghz
onboard graphics
onboard sound

I told him it might be an overheating issue and to take the case off the computer and clean the dust out, could it be slightly more serious like the northbridge cooler gone bad?

Or is it a windows/driver problem?

A:Stuttering/disappearing sound when playing some games or using winamp

Well the onboard sound is actually controlled by the South Bridge chip I believe; from what it sounds like (no pun intended) the drivers could be out of date. Winamp is usually super-reliable so I would check which version he is running and maybe give that an update, which is free. Also, make sure DirectX is up to date and have him run dxdiag to run the sound tests. START > Run > type dxdiag in the bar...

Personally, I would just invest in a dedicated sound adapter. You can get a decent Creative card for around $30 now and the sound quality would be much better anyways.

When I play Warcraft III, I get occasional stuttering/skipping simultaneously in the video/sound/input(mouse). This occurs with both online and offline play, but it does not occur homogenously while I am playing. I can detect no pattern other than it wont start until after a few minutes of gameplay. Sometimes it will go away, other times it will stay around even in the main menu.

I have all the updated drivers, plus DirectX 9.0c. I have lowered all the settings. I can't be sure if this has an effect or not; I can't quantify the severity very well. I've also run it in OpenGL mode.

Now, enter CS:S. This game runs fine. Half Life 2 ran fine also, both on the highest quality settings. One day I decide to play CS:S with winamp playing music in the background. I'm playing for a few minutes with no problems when a similar stuttering problem happens. The winamp music becomes so choppy (and never improves, unlike the war3 problem) and progressively gets worse that I stop it.

This leads me to believe it's a sound problem, even though I still have a video/input problem when I'm playing war3 with no sound (although I think it's to a lesser degree).

Last week, I installed Homeworld2 and it has the same problems as Warcraft III.

I tried disabling sound acceleration (via dxdiag), but the problem remains in war3.

A:How can I get sound output from sound card when streaming video?

Hello green,

You get sound from your microphone? I don't think I am understanding. Sound should come from your sound card. You plug the speakers into the back of the computer and into the sound card (green jack). The mic receives sound. My mic is USB so it doesn't use any jack other than the USB port, but if you use the sound card, it goes into the purple jack

Do you have the audio driver installed? This should be right: http://support.acer.com/product/defa...x?modelId=2192

Hey guys,

So far I've been less than impressed with Windows 10's system permissions. I am in the Administrators group, as the only user on my PC, but yet I still have to provide UAC confirmation any time I try to do anything system-related. A bit ironic, no?

Well, for some programs this is a huge issue. I'm using an older version of Winamp to play my music (long story short, the new versions have a lot of shareware crap built in, since they stopped making it a free program and instead wanted you to pay...)
It's an old program, probably from 2003 or something, but it's worked fine on every version of Windows so far. Rather than using %appdata%, it just stores its settings locally. Winamp.ini and winamp.m3u store the settings and location of most recently played file respectively, and they're located in C:/Program Files (x86)/Winamp

Right, so here's the thing. I have a mIRC script that reads Winamp's activity, and can show what song I am playing. If I run the app normally, it will not modify winamp.m3u (even though I've already edited the permissions of that file and the entire Winamp folder so that Users have full control... shouldn't matter since I'm admin but I digress). If I do "run as administrator", play a song and close the program, the m3u DOES get updated with the new song's location. However... my mIRC script doesn't behave when I do that, since the script still runs as a normal user like any other program, and somehow it just takes the bitrate, fi... Read more

A:Winamp Issues with winamp.m3u and permissions

This is not a Windows 10 issue, it's working as it should, protecting the Program Files folder as designed. By default Windows protects the system folders with global security settings, everything placed for instance in Program Files and Program Files x86 folders inherit these global settings only giving users and groups permissions to Read, Read & execute and List folder contents.

Your case is a typical example of this, another is for instance trying to save a text document from Notepad to Program Files or Windows folders; it won't work when Notepad is run normally giving Access Denied error, but can be done if Notepad is run as the built-in administrator.

In your case it's not you as an admin user who should get the write permissions, it's (as far as I know) the group ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES:

However, I do not recommend changing the default security settings of system folders. A far more simple solution would be to reinstall the software in question in another location, not in a system folder. Install your older WinAmp for instance to D:\WinAmp and you should have no issues, subject to you being able to edit your mIRC script to change the location from where it retrieves the information.

I'm a college student with a desktop computer. Whenever I come home, I leave my speakers at school.

I used to have Windows Vista. When I'd come home, I could listen to music without headphones or speakers. In other words, sound would come from my sound card.

I now have Windows 7, which will only play sound when I have headphones or speakers. How can I enable Windows to let sound play from my sound card when I don't have any other means of output?

A:Sound Output

Normally, desktops do not have speakers. If yours does, it's not the usual configuration on a desktop. Best to checkwith HP to see what you need to do, as you may need some special HP audio software to get it to work.

I've worked on several HP desktops and none of them had internal speakers.

I just noticed today when I was going to listen to some MP3's that my sound card makes a buzz on the output jack, a really high buzz you can't hear anything but the buzz and a small echo of the music. I'm 100% sure its in the output jack, I also tryed hooking up my headphones to the card and I got that buzzing noise in the headphones too. I didn't hot plug the speakers, and theres nothing wrong with them I have been listening to them all day through my cd player so there has to be some hardware problem. I messed around with the settings and nothing changed. I have rebooted my computer several times and messed with the connection jacks to my amp and still no change. I just used the output jack the other day when watching a dvd and it worked fine. The only thing that would effect the system that I've done to my computer since I watched the dvd is that I ran windows disk defragmenter and I got an error lke 30 seconds after the screen saver came on(I forgot to disable it). I have windows 98, AMD Duron 800 MHZ processor, 192 mb of ram, 40 gig drive. I've gone through the hardware settings and nothing has changed in the sound card drivers.

A:Sound Output

Usually when any piece of audio electronics has that irritating buzzing sound with faint music in background a physical ground is missing or a leak to ground has occurred.
You may have developed a problem in your audio card or with external connections.
Make sure all you physical connections to the card are good.
You may also want to remove the card from you PC and clean all the contacts on the card and reinsert.
After all above is tried you may want to remove the audio card from device manager and reinstall all your drivers.
If reinstalling and cleaning all contacts does not solve the problem you may have a defective card.

After a quick read it seems that lenova 3000 n100 can come with two different audio drivers.(realtek or soundmax) The solution is dependent on which driver you require.Have a quick read here it may help

Hi there ive recently put my Girlfriend's old PC back together and proceeded to install of the driver's. The problem is the PC is emitting so sound through the speaker's i visited the manufacturers website and downloaded the drivers from there yet still no luck, upon opening the Case i found a Cable labelled Speaker that was not connected to anything (its the same kind of cable as PWR LED,RESET SW etc) however unlike the majority of PC's ive built it has no pins to insert the Speaker cable into there is a part on the Motherboard that says speaker however, there's no pins built in to accomadate it the only other slot i could find that the Speaker cable could fit into was labelled SPDIF_OUT, but upon inserting the cable there nothing happens, The motherboard has 3 ports upon which an AV Jack (for my speaker's can fit into) pink green and blue, im assumming its supposed to be green, however i have tryed the other's also

The MotherBoard is : FOXCONN RC4017MA-RS2
CPU: INTEL penium 4 3GHz
RAM: 1.5GB

The sound card is built into the Motherboard.

Also upon entering Device manager there is no yellow checks at all.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

A:Pc No Sound Output

The speaker inside the case is used to emit the POST beep to let you know the computer hardware has passed the test and can boot. It does not play sounds from Windows or your audio. The Green plug is the Speaker out for your computer.
Boot into Setup (Bios) and make sure the onboard Audio is Enabled. At bootup you should get the new hardware wizard. You may need to download the driver from the Motherboard manufacturer If you don't know the model # of the motherboard then download Speccy and it will tell you the info you need.

I have a TV that is already hooked up to my PC screens output and a 5.1 surround sound receiver/system downstairs that I wish I could hook my computers normal sound output up to with the single s/pdif cord. I want to use it to watch non-dvd movies (avi, vcd).

I recently bought a Hercules Game Theatre XP and Ive come to find out that you can't really output the PCs normal wave out to the S/PDIF because an ac3 stream would have to be created. Is there anyway to create this stream and output it via the power-dvd s/pdif filter?? This could possibly be implemented in zoomplayer as it supports sound re-routing and what not.

If anyone knows any software work around of how to output PC wave to ac3 stream OR any hardware card that DOES do this....please lemme know!

thanks in advance

My Mom got her PC repaired at a crappy shop. He tricked her into changing the sound card as a problem to the slow speed of the PC.
But, he installed a good one(Creative SB Live! series)
(He Didn't gave her the box of the same)

Now, The problem is that it is giving out extremely low output.
I have checked the system sound control. But i cant find Why the hell it is giving such a low output.

I installed the latest drivers by Driver_Easy(Because i couldn't find the drivers at the site).

Help please.
[Attached is the description of my sound card. ]

A:Sound Card low Output

Going by the DevID in that screen shot it is the Dell version of the Live 5.1, which doesn't work with the regular Live drivers. For that card (at least on XP) you need the one here,

Creative Worldwide Support > Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 Digital (Dell)

Click on the Driver link to show them all and the one you want is,

(Dell) Driver Install Pack 2 – 10 Languages
File Name : SBL5DL_DRVPACK_LB.exe

Hello, please help.

I have my laptop Dell Studio connected to Hitachi HDTV input, the problem is that the TV displays picture (although not in full recommended resolution, not sure why either), but the sound is not coming out from the TV speakers. The audio device manager shows as if sound is being used, the little green bars move up/down when something is being played but no actual sound is heard.

I have attached a picture of the audio device manager page to show you how is configured right now.

I'm desperate and I don't know what to do.

I've got a problem here. I recently got a new graphics card (gtx 650 ti), but after installing it my sound went dead on reboot. Since then I've reinstalled the realtek hd driver, uninstalled the nvidia drivers, and even uninstalled both to use the windows generic drivers. Still no sound.

After that I had restored my system to a time the sound was working, and there was STILL no sound. I've spent a full day trying to solve this. I'm at a complete loss at what could be causing this problem and would really appreciate some help with this.

A:No sound output on Windows 7 x64

Hi triwa,

If you right click on your sound icon in the tray icon area (bottom right hand side) and click Playback devices, what devices can you see in there.

I'm assuming of course you're using Win7/8.

If you've reinstalled the drivers without error as you said, you should have some working devices in there...

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate with Realtek HD Audio Manager installed and was using regular headphones in the front jack. I decided to plug a microphone into the front mic jack. When I did the sound cut off for the head phones. If I go into "playback devices" and Speakers "properties" then the "levels" tab, and unmute the "front mic" I can hear the microphone, but I cannot hear any other sound from the computer. Not even the ping when you select the volume.

How do I restore original sound options? Or if you have run into this before how do I run the mic and headphone at the same time?

A:Selective sound output

I don't know why it worked this time but I set the default back to "speakers" and the sound kicked back in. I had done it before but this time it worked. Problem solved.

I recently got a mic and when i play games and try and talk to my friends from teamspeak all the noise from the game comes through the mic really loudly so they can't hear me and its just noise from the game. This happens even when i turn my speakers and headphones totally off and put volumes to lowest. The only thing i can do to fix it is turn the volume off totally off in the game, but then i can't hear anything, even if its on very slightly it comes through to my friends computer like a fog horn.

I use AC'97 OnBoard audio anyone know how to fix this problem i tried everything i have the latest drivers and set everything to mute except wave sound main volume and mic and the problem persists. I set all the drop down tabs to microphone and headset but this doesn't make a difference.

please help

Ok, this is driving me crazy...

I am trying to record my in game sounds and my microphone sounds from FRAPS. I have tried routing the sound by choosing "Listen to this" under the microphone options. However, then I can't talk correctly because I hear myself. So what I need is some software or configuration that is going to let me hear my ingame sounds, record them, record my voice into my mic, but not hear my voice. Thanks.

Hey all,

I have a problem with the HDMI output on my laptop. I've tried to research the problem and for the most part the answer is to set the default playback device to the HDMI output. I do this, and even when I click the 'Test' button, the bell rings through the speakers of the TV, along with other system noises like error popups. However, when I try to watch movies or listen to music there is no sound from the TV. I can even be playing a song, press the 'Test' button, and it rings just fine.... but no music. It's making me and I need some help!

A:No Sound on HDMI Output to TV

I solved this by going in to the sound options on my computer (which you can access in your control panel or right click bottom of desktop speaker) then set your sound default as HDMI. thats what i did worked a treat

I'm using Edirol UA3D. The sound is fine for recording with Line In but the output to my speakers is very low. When I switch to Stereo Mix and record the output to my speakers is perfect. Why can't I hear what I'm recording with Line In at a sufficient volume? Thanks and Happy New Year 2012 all of you at Tech Support Forum!

Hi,My problem is that one fine day the sound output on my desktop computer went very low without any reason or warning. I did everything I could, tried with different speakers, even with my stereo system, but the sound was low in all of them, so I figured this had to be a hardware problem inside the computer - or specifically on the motherboard, since I use the onboard sound output of my Intel DG31PR.I think it started after - or just around the time - I changed my power supply unit (my computer had begun to restart by itself, esp when I tried to use the cd-rom drive, I checked and saw the power supply fan had stopped turning, so I replaced the PSU and all the problems went away, all except this one!) So I exchanged my new power supply for another unit, but the sound problem is still there. I've been struggling with this a long time, so all the obvious explanations are ruled out. (I've attached a few pics to illustrate!)

A:Onboard Sound Output gone very low

Welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

If you feel your on-board sound chip is failing, you can always purchase a decent add in sound card and turn off the on-board.

I can see your volume controls are all maxed out, I should advise you that certain software such as Windows Media Player has its own built in volume control.

You should make sure you have adjusted those controls as well as your on-board chips volume properties.

I've got a Dell Vostro 200 with rear panel jacks for front/centr/rear speaker SurroundSound and RealTek HD Audio Manager...

I play on CombatArms, an online, team-based First Person Shooter put out by Nexon (nexon.net, they also run DungeonFighter, MapleStory & Vindictus).

Game sounds come thru standard Audio Out jack, and you can talk to team members thru Mic/Line in with "Mic On/Talk" toggle being key-mapable...

Headsets are VERY popular...

I have a CombatArms Playlist on my Windows Media Player, which I run while in-game. Output thru standard Audio Out Jack.

I have the various volume settings (System Master Volume, Media Player Volume, Game Sounds Master Volume, Sound Effects Volume and VoiceChat Volume) adjusted so the gunfire (gamesounds) is BARELY audible over the music and team members (VoiceChat) are SOFTER than the Lead Vocals but LOUDER than the Back-up Vocals of the bands.

Here's what I'd LIKE to be able to do...

I want to loop the MUSIC output to the Mic/Line input THRU the "Mic On" toggle key so that whenever I hit (or hold) the "Talk" button the music is ALSO broadcast to my team...

I tried a basic 3.5mm splitter but it caused an echo effect when team members responded. I assume this was caused by the fact that game sound AND music are coming thru the same jack...

Is there a way to separate those two signals so I can inflict my musical tastes on my team mates?
