Streaming Nintendo Switch, trying to monitor and output audio without hearing echo in stream


New Member
Hi everyone! I'm very new to streaming and have been doing a lot of research. I've managed to be able to stream my switch video and audio, my mic, and desktop audio all at once. I'm on a 2020 Macbook Pro and am using iShowU Audio Capture. However, because I'm using "monitor and output" for the switch audio, it appears to be picking up the switch audio as part of the desktop audio and sort of "echoing" it into the stream. Is there any way I can separate monitoring my switch audio (so that I can hear the game while I play & stream) from desktop audio? i.e. can I somehow send the switch audio directly to my headphones without going thru desktop audio? Obviously I don’t know a lot about any of this so tips and explanations would be greatly appreciated!!

I think this might be kind of unrelated, but while I'm at it: at 0:40 you can hear an echo of what someone says (if I recall correctly, I had "desktop audio" at about 30% in the audio mixer). Is this normal because he was extremely loud or does it have to do with my aforementioned issue?
