OBS is a powerful streaming tool that Audient interfaces can connect too.
One of the situations you may face when using OBS with our interfaces is getting a mono signal for multiple mics into the software as the inputs appear stereo within OBS, follow the steps below to receive these as mono mics into OBS.
In this example we will use an iD44 as the interface.
Please be aware this will only work for Windows users of OBS, unfortunately the Mac version cannot see these inputs.
Open up OBS and navigate to the main settings page, it will be on the bottom right within the "controls" panel:
Once you have opened up the settings find "Audio" on the left hand side and select this.
Now you will have the audio settings open and will need to assign the mic inputs as shown below, this is to ensure that we can split the audio channels into 4 in the next step.
Now hit apply and close the settings window. Now we need to setup the channels, so click the gear in the "Audio Mixer" tab at the bottom of the main window. You will then have the window below.
What we are doing here is setting all of the input channels to mono, and then panning left and right to isolate the different parts of the signal, so for channel 1 and 2, the left input will always be input 1, and for the right input it will be channel 2.
Now you will be up and running for having 4 different mic inputs from the preamps on your iD interface. This can also be done for the 2 channel interfaces where needed.
