Question / Help Unable to record and monitor elgato sound without it going out to desktop audio


New Member
I have the elgato hd60 pro and I want to record the audio for it on my main stream and also output the audio to a seperate audio file for recording. I also want to listen to the elgato while streaming so I can hear the gameplay as im playing the game. I of course decided to choose monitor only (mute output) to do this, so it will not echo for my stream or recording. The issue when I do this is that it seems to output the sound to my desktop audio no matter what I try to do. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this issue so I can monitor my elgato while also keeping it completely seperate from my desktop audio in both recording and streaming without an echo. Thanks!

For monitoring, OBS is sending the audio to the device you configure in Settings->Audio->Advanced->Monitoring Device. Default is "Default", which is desktop audio.
