UPDATE: I was able to get the mic and the speakers to stream live on Broadwave, but enabling the "stereo mix" gives all audio a horrible reverb effect that makes it almost impossible to listen to. I have disabled all audio effects and tried everything I know how. Now I'm back to only being able to stream the mic. I was able to do this with Windows XP no problem, why not with Windows 7?
Okay, first, I have read the topics posted by KenA on getting Broadwave to run on Windows 7. My goal is to stream audio that I am playing on my computer through iTunes, YouTube, Pandora, etc. as well as stream my voice from my microphone. I am doing a live internet radio show. I had it working with my old PC running Windows XP, but it had some issues, so I just purchased a new PC with Windows 7. I have the speakers plugged in to the "line out" port (green) and the mic plugged into the "mic" port (pink). The only way I have been able to get Broadwave to stream the audio coming from my speakers is to enable the "Stereo Mix" option on the audio manager, but this makes EVERYTHING streaming through Broadwave have a horrible reverb effect and sometimes really awful feedback. I can stop this if I disable the Stereo Mix but then you can't stream the audio from iTunes, YouTube, etc. you can only stream the input from the Mic. Any help? I'm really at a loss here. Thank you.
Hi Ken, I have been following your tips for getting Broadwave Audio to run on Windows 7. My husband just bought this new desktop with Windows 7 on it and I was previously running Broadwave on XP. My goal is to have a mic hooked up to the PC and have that streaming AND to have any music I play from my computer (iTunes, YouTube, Pandora etc.) streaming as well. I have the mic in the "line in" (blue) port and my speakers in the "line out" (green)port. On the Realtek audio manager that comes up I can only make EITHER "line in" or "Stero Mix" the default device, so that confused me. I am able to speak in the mic and hear myself talking through the speakers, and any audio I play is coming through the speakers. I have two streams set up on Broadwave: 1 I have set as "line in" and the other set to "speakers". Both streams show visually that the sound is coming through (I see the sound bars moving up and down with voice/music), but I am not able to get either to stream from another computer, or the computer I'm using. I have the router settings configured to this new computer following the directions on the NCH site. They are set the same way as my old computer. I updated the code on the website that we stream from. I am somewhat new to Broadwave in general and even newer now to Windows 7, so I'm sort of at a loss. Since you were able to to get it to work and seem to be quite knowledgable I was hoping you could help me. Thank you.
