During intense moments on streams, i really need to be able to listen to my game and focus, but loud alerts often distract me. I know i can mute the sound on the service i'm using, but I would still appreciate it if stream could still hear the alerts going off.
There might be a way to use banana voicemeeter here. You'll need to create a separate audio route which you use for your default output, then use the windows sound settings to route your game directly to your headphone audio source. Voicemeeter can then route that default output source to your headphone source and you can toggle it on and off from there... Have you used voicemeeter before?
