Plugin for OBS Studio to add Audio Monitor dock and filter. It allows you to put the audio of a OBS source to an audio device by adding the Audio Monitor filter on the Source in OBS Studio.


This can be useful in different use cases:
  • monitoring a source on multiple devices
  • monitoring audio without the delays of syncing to video
  • separate monitoring audio levels per source and device

The idea for this plugin is a request from FeVR

Insanely useful plugin, probably one of the most essential for me to be totally honest. As much as I love OBS and am eternally grateful for free software, some of the default audio implementation and limitations are absolutely mind boggling. This plugin significantly alleviates this for me, thanks Exeldro :)

Tip: You can use this with virtual audio cables to send your OBS mic with all the filters and such applied into the rest of your programs for example. One of the many things more advanced audio routing allows!
the audio monitor filter get delay after few minutes and there is a bug with the mute linked to source muting option that sometimes it does not work when i mute the source there's still sounds. it just does not link to the source. but overall this is a very good plugin
Exeldro, I'm dropping by just to thank you for the tremendous work you do with these OBS plugins. I had an issue that was causing OBS to crash - as can be seen in previous comments - and with the new version, it's completely fixed. Seriously, thank you so much for your work. I believe your plugins are among the best.
Thank you!! This is awesome. I needed a way to send OBS sources to Mainstage and then back to OBS so I can master all the audio together in Mainstage. Boom, this is it. Great plug-in!
I love this plugin. Had some problems with the previous version together with Touchportal, but the latest version seems to be working ok.
Occasionally i get a crash when exiting OBS-Studio, but not while beeing streaming so it is acceptable.
Still my favorite plugin to this date :)
wonderful plugin, honestly I don't know why this isn't a built in feature in OBS. It does cause your OBS to crash after you're doing with your live stream when you exit OBS, but at least it doesn't crash during the stream. I have noticed others with the same issue. It's a usable plugin and the crash only happens when you close it - enough to live with it because it's such a nice plugin to have <3
Still crash with aktive Touch Portal!
Couldn't live without it, so glad it's fixed.
MacOS (Intel) Version is broken. Crash if multiple output was used.
It's a nice plug-in but OBS crashes everytime I exit OBS. In turn when I reload OBS it breaks all my audio sources loaded into a scene. I have to thus delete the sources and re add them again. Please fix this.
