Manual sound controls useless
« on: August 01, 2014, 10:09:05 am »
I use a Logitech G110, it has its own built in sound card, i plug my Headphones into the back of it when playing games.

That seems to create a problem for Dxtory, sometimes i play through the speakers, other times i plug the Headphones in, because i started the program without Headphones it uses the speaker output, when i plug the Headphones in it does not recognise that so it will record games without sound.
This means i have to go into Dxtory and change the sound settings everytime i want to play a game. sometimes i forget to set it and i end up recording with no sound.

This is completely ridiculous, only Dxtory has this 1990's problem of not automatically recognising which sound device is active.

Or is there a way to make it recognise what sound device is active? as it is, i'm on the brink of unistalling it and dumping it, this is a really simple yet annoying problem, other programs are coming along and with AMD's VCE.

If connecting the headphones creates a new audio device for Dxtory, then I doubt there's any way making it to change automatically...

It's your right to uninstall the software, but you won't find many good alternatives who can records at the same performance and quality while recording audio into separate audio tracks. To me you are complaining about a small issue. All professional YouTubers "always" make pre-tests before start recording a video. It's less of a bother and more of a requirement.
