When practising I can't be too noisy, so I have to use my headphones. But I hate wires, especially wires going to my headset. Therefore I use the wireless Logitech G933 gaming headset. It has a really low latency for gaming. The sound from games have an unnoticeable latency, so I assumed that I could just get an audio interface, plug my guitar in, and use amp simulation without much latency. I had bought a Behringer UMC22 audio interface, but I just can't manage to get a low latency.

Well, I can get a low latency, but this requires me to use the ASIO4ALL driver which takes exclusive control of my headset and I can't play along to songs or watch tutorials on YouTube.

The closest working solution (which wasn't playable due to the latency) was by using the ASIO4ALL drivers and VoiceMeeter.

With the current state of technology I can't believe that this is not possible. But I've searched and experimented for hours, and I can't find a working solution.. Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • Behringer don't make their own drivers, so you're stuck with what Windows can do with audio… which is not much. Maybe try flexASIO instead. I'm not on Win & don't use Behringer, so can't help much more. – Tetsujin Mar 26 at 13:51
  • I use Mac, but Voicemeeter Banana might be something to try vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm – piiperi Reinstate Monica Mar 26 at 15:30
  • @Tetsujin I've tried flexASIO, but I couldn't get it to work. I'll try again though, maybe I can get it to work this time. – Animiles Mar 27 at 14:48

    This won't help you, but on the Mac things work by default with regular audio APIs that every application uses, no need for 3rd party ASIO things which exist on Windows to hack around Microsoft's stuff. Anyway, one way to get this to work is to use an ASIO audio interface with more inputs than just the guitar. If you have, say, 4 input channels, you can physically connect the PC's normal audio line output to the audio interface's extra inputs, say, channels 3-4, and your guitar to channel 1. Mix all the channels in your DAW and you'll have low-latency guitar, and backing tracks from Youtube. – piiperi Reinstate Monica Mar 27 at 15:05
