Re: Mixing midi output and microphone to conferencing app

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


One approach would be to create the virtual device for the MIDI output alone. Then capture both MIDI output and headset microphone tracks individually using exact constraints at getUserMedia(), then connect each individual MediaStreamTrack to a Web Audio API MediaStreamAudioDestinationNode where both tracks will be playing in that stream, for example, see

Hi folks,

I'm trying to send the output of an usb-connected plantronics headset and my digital piano (using midi + fluidsynth) over google meet/zoom/jitsi/.. to the other side. I also  need to hear my piano in the headset (it has no speakers)

I've based myself off of and been testing all kinds of combinations, but I'm hitting a roadblock.

The commands I'm using at the moment are:


pacmd load-module module-null-sink sink_name=mix-for-virtual-mic sink_properties=device.description=Mix-for-Virtual-Microphone
pacmd load-module module-combine-sink sink_name=virtual-microphone-and-speakers slaves=mix-for-virtual-mic,$HEADSET
pacmd load-module module-loopback latency_msec=20 sink=virtual-microphone-and-speakers source=$MIC
pacmd load-module module-null-sink sink_name=silence sink_properties=device.description=silent-sink-for-echo-cancel
pacmd load-module module-echo-cancel sink_name=virtual-microphone source_name=virtual-microphone source_master=mix-for-virtual-mic.monitor sink_master=silence aec_method=null source_properties=device.description=Virtual-Microphone sink_properties=device.description=Virtual-Microphone

The effect is that I can perfectly pick the microphone "Virtual Microphone" in the conferencing apps, but only my keyboard is sounding through. My voice / mic never gets picked up.

I've tried recording using
parecord --channels=2 -d mix-for-virtual-mic.monitor /tmp/x.wav

but same story, only the piano is being picked up.

What did I miss? In all logic, this should work?

Kind regards,
