If I want to broadcast a game and my voice, without mixing in a Skype converation this is how I would do it:

  • Audio Repeater 1: Mic > VAC2 (so that the viewers can hear me talk to them)
  • Audio Repeater 2: VAC3 > VAC2 (so the viewers can hear the PC sounds (and any music I play)
  • Audio Repeater 3: VAC3 > Headset or speakers  ( so that I can hear the game sounds and my pc sounds myself!)
