Connecting Skype with SAM v4.

I have found a good reliable connection using one computer and one sound card.


You must purchase “Virtual Cables”. I will post links when the forum will let me

Once “Virtual Cables” is installed, open “Virtual Cables” control panel and add 5 virtual cables and restart the driver.

Now start up seven “Audio Repeaters”. (Audio Repeater comes with “Virtual Cables”)

Configure each “Audio Repeater” like so:

Total Buffer: 100
Priority: RealTime

Leave the rest at their default values.

Now change the Inputs and Outputs parameters to this.

Audio Repeater 1
Input:Logitech USB Headset
Output:Virtual Cable 5

Audio Repeater 2
Input:Virtual Cable 1
Output:Virtual Cable 4

Audio Repeater 3
Input:Virtual Cable 5
Output:Virtual Cable 4

Audio Repeater 4
Input:Virtual Cable 3
Output:Virtual Cable 2

Audio Repeater 5
Input:Virtual Cable 3
Output:Logitech USB Headset

Audio Repeater 6
Input:Virtual Cable 5
Output:Virtual Cable 2

Audio Repeater 7
Input:Virtual Cable 1
Output:Logitech USB Headset

Now you can start each “Audio Repeater”.

Now lets set up Skype.

Open Skype. Click on the “Tools” menu item. Then select the “Options” menu item. Now choose “Audio Settings”.

Change the Microphone setting to “Virtual Cable 4”.
Change the Speaker setting to “Virtual Cable 3”.
Change the Ringing setting to Virtual Cable 3”

Lets the current setup. In Skype’s “Options” choose “Sounds” and “Choose which sound to play” the press “Play this sound”.

You should be able to hear the sound coming through your USB headset. If you can’t, review the instruction carefully and make sure that your settings are as described above.

Now lets set up SAM Broadcaster v4.

Start Sam Broadcaster.
Click on “Config” then select “Audio Mixer Pipline”. Now click on “Air Out”.
Under the Air Output Settings” change the “Output Driver” parameter to “DirectSound Output”. Change the “Output Device” parameter to “Virtual Cable 2”. Then look down the page a bit to “Cue Output Settings”. Select “Separate Sound Device”. Now change the “Cue Device” parameter to “Virtual Cable 1”.

Now choose “Mixer”. Then select “Sound Card AGC”. Uncheck “Use Sound Card AGC”.

Almost done. Choose “Desktop A”. If you haven’t change the default desktop then you will see a window that says “Voice FX”. Choose “Config” from the “Voice FX” window.
Under “Voice FX Destination” choose “Encoders (Record to pipeline, skip output)”. Under “Recording settings” choose “DirectSound Recorder” for the “Record Driver” parameter. For the “Record sound device” parameter choose “Virtual Cable 5”.

Now go to “Desktop B”.
Look at “Encoders” Right click on your encoder then choose “Select Source” then choose “Soundcard”, then choose “Virtual Cable 2”.

Done!

If you would like a batch file to start up all your Audio Repeaters you can download it here... I will post a link when the forum lets me


I will post a diagram when the forum lets me (I need three post) ???

The problem is that you have the demo version which only lets you have 2.

You have to fork out 30 bucks for it. Its cheap for what it does.

The unlimited copy lets you have as many as you want.

audiorepeater.exe comes with Virtual Cables.

Simply execute the program "audiorepeater.exe" seven times and configure each one as shown above.

OK..

I have the following setup..

PC with SAM 4 (MySQL) and USB headset

Laptop with Skype (standard headset.

I have plugged my headset mic into the laptop, and a patch cable into the headphone socket... this goes into the LINE IN socket on my PC soundcard.

If i change the recording source in SAM to LINE IN, then it semie works.. as in people on skype can hear me, i can hear them... BUT, it only sends THEIR part of the skype conversation out to air.. not my part.

I have a feeling that i am missing something... and probably something simple... but i have no idea what.
