View Full Version : Fraps & sound problems/help

04-17-2012, 03:01 PM
Hello there,

I was wondering if I could record game sounds only with fraps. BUT when i'm listening to music too. I've searched the internet but havn't really found how this could be done. Listening to music makes me play way better so this would be very nice!

Does someone know?

Two sound cards. Default audio device for game sound, music player maps to the other audio device to play music.

The chance of you setting something like that up easily is slim. You'd need to use Virtual Audio Cable redirects so that:

Set up Virtual Audio Cable as Default.

Launch Game.

Game Audio would go into Virtual Audio Cable 1 In.

Virtual Audio Cable 1 Out would go to Sound Device and Fraps.

Set default device to Sound Device.

Start Music Player.


It'd be more practical to add a second set of headphones than to attend to a jumble of VACs every time.
