I can screenshare the sonic pi app over discord, but the viewers can’t hear audio from the application. I can share chrome for movies, and the audio goes through fine, so I don’t think it’s a discord issue, or a “sharing the wrong screen” issue. Anyone know a fix for this, or is there a plan to address this?
I would love to do shows through discord, and having that capability opens a whole new avenue of performance. It is super frustrating that it doesn’t currently work. Did a bunch of googling but didn’t find any real answers.
Thanks for any input!
Proof I’m sharing the application, and not just the screen. Also, just downloaded the newest version sometimes this week. I’m on Version v4.1.0
- Install Voicemeeter Potato
We have to set Sonic Pi to send to “virtual inputs”
You have to choose between 3 virtual inputs. Their corresponding name are a bit a mess
- Voicemeeter VAIO
- Voicemeeter AUX
- (Voicemeeter) VAIO
Ok so i decide to set to voicemeeter VAIO
Launch Sonic Pi
Sonic Pi will send its audio to Voicemeeter VAIO input
Physical outputs in voicemeeter
In voicemeeter, you have got some physical outputs A1, A2, A3, A4, A5
We need to set the A1 to the audio card plugged to our headphones
For me it’s an external audio card Yamaha Steinberg USB
Virtual outputs in voicemeeter
virtual outputs named B1, B2,B3
Again the names are not easy to identify
3 outputs starting with VoiceMeeter
- VoiceMeeter VAIO3 Output
- VoiceMeeter Output
- VoiceMeeter Aux Output
The B1 virtual output will be used as an input into Discord (Périphérique d’Entrée in French)
use a usb microphone to record your voice
I plugged an Zoom H2 recorder into an usb port
Note that this stream is sent to A1 (my physical audiocard) and B1 (Discord).
This should work for you. So you can stream sonic pi via Discord.
if you see an error or need explanation feel free to join the conversation
if you want to test the result, cmlp. Maybe i will be en direct
I can try that. But seems super complicated for such a simple ask.
Thanks though! Maybe its possible to add discord support at one point?
Also, I just realized. is this going to take over my input on my mic so i have fuck with my mic setting every time I wanna switch up and play with sonic pi? Maybe I dont fully understand, and have to try it, but it seems thats what is impied with the voice set up. And that is too much set up when I use discord every day for streaming. I dont wanna take an hour switching settings every time I wanna show a friend a little doodle in a call lol.
I just want to share the screen, like I would a video game in discord, and have that audio be separate from my voice input, so I don’t have to mess with mic settings all the time. If that isn’t possible, then I think it should be at some point.
