Just thought I would share a new OBS 28.1.0 feature I discovered yesterday.
I was looking for a way to integrate my EZ Drummer 2 desktop app as an input source to OBS without going through a DAW. When I recently upgraded I had not looked at adding additional Scene Sources, so this was the first I noticed a very hand feature being Beta tested.
As you can see from the highlighted Source in the screen grab below its called
Application Audio Capture and its a bit Ronseal ! It does exactly what it says on the tin.
When you add the source, it presents a list of active applications and you simply select the one you want. Then go to Advanced Audio setting and make sure monitoring is set to Monitor and Output, as you would do for other audio input sources,
So after spending a while messing around and recording various EZD2 samples to ensure the output was captured alongside my ASIO Input Capture source, I thought this could be handy for recording or OMs and just as easy to add a backing track via desktop media player.
To double check the process, I have just added another Application Audio Capture source and added Groove Music and slapped on a little Yesterday as proof of concept. And voila a very simple way to add a backing track.
I could never get the Media Source to play audio successfully but this seems a sure fired way to drive backing tracks into OBS while recording your audio and video.
All good fun !
