    Good afternoon folks, I just finished my DOF 3 motion rig from DOF Reality. I'm using SimTools, Fanatec CSW V2, Fanatec Pedals and Fanatec Seq Shifter. Everything seems to be working well in Project Cars. My problem is I can't get my bass transducer to work once I plug in my USB wireless headset (HyperX Cloud Flight.) or even when the sound is coming from the monitor that is being fed by the HDMI cable. So if I don't have the USB headset plugged in and the sound is coming out of the monitor speakers and I plug in the bass transducer amp to the 3.5mm subwoofer jack then the bass transducer works but no sound from the monitor or the headset. My PC has a Gigabyte Aorus Z370 motherboard that has an onboard sound card. I am not able to get the subwoofer output AND the monitor speakers to work at the same time. I'm running Windows 10

    As I understand it, Game Vibe was created to be able to use up to 8 bass transducers using a second audio card. I'm only able to attach one bass transducer to my rig so I only need to have one bass transducer. Is Game Vibe my solution?

    I've done a bunch of google searches and several people have posted several fixes and I've attempted all of them. Some simply don't work for me, others are for different versions of Windows and other fixes suggest to do certain things that don't show up on my tabs.

    I'm not interested in installing more than one bass transducer, I just need the one I have to work.

    Thanks to those with any information.

    Game Vibe is designed to run a transducer via a separate sound card. But in your case it seems what you want to do it audio mirroring, so playing the sound via the main card including the transducer, with audio mirrored to your USB headset.

    So try this to set up audio mirroring:

    To mirror audio for you headset and speakers + transducer first set your soundcard as the default device in sound options.

    Then enable Stereo Mixer as per my video.



    In the Properties of the Stereo Mixer go to the Listen tab and then check the box 'Listen to this device'. Under the 'Playback through this device', select Headphones from the drop down menu.

    In the Advanced tab uncheck: Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device.

    Thank you for your response. I tried exactly that and had no luck. BUT I finally got it working by downloading a free small app called VOICEMEETER. It allows you to select two different outputs and viola!

    Thanks again for your response.
