Multiple audio track recording#24

J

Make it so that when recording games you can have multiple audio tracks for things like discord, your own mic and then the game.

Not sure if thisd falls under the game only audio suggestion but would be a nice feature, only thing that made me really utilize plays/medal for the most part.

And the ability to record from multiple audio sources. I have the SteelSeries Arctis 7 and it has Discord on a separate source from the rest.

Completely agree I really wish I could record my mic discord and the game on different audio tracks It’s annoying when something happens but something gets said that’s private or that ruins the clip in some way that I simply can’t remove without removing all the audio completely

I would really love to see this feature added as well. Sometimes I don’t want discord audio in the clip but obviously want the game audio.

Yes, this is one of the first things I thought of when I saw it could isolate discord voice chat. Sometimes voice channels get really noisy and force me to mute the clip and I’d rather just flip off the discord/mic audio tracks instead.

Yes i would love this, my headset has 2 audio output streams, one for chat and one for game so if i could record both of those and my microphone that would be perfect.

Hey Thomas, I just tried playing around with multiple tracks on Shadowplay but wasn’t able to get it to work. Would you mind reaching out to me on Discord so I can understand what your expectation of multiple tracks is?

@Brandersnatcher#6697 or find me in the Medal Server - Discord.gg/medal

Pretty much just want a mic track and a windows audio track. One input, one output. Not sure why people are asking for application mixers, that’s way more complicated.

@brandon
For shadowplay audio it should be
Alt-Z for the overlay
Settings cog on the right
Audio
Separate both tracks

Just gonna leave this here, if you’re gonna implement multiple tracks on Medal, please let us assign more than 2. For some people it might be enough, but for me for example, I’d like more than that. They way I have it set up on OBS is I have one for my mic, one for discord (chat), and one for the game, or media.
I have the Hyper X Cloud Alpha S, and it comes with a neat feature where you can separate Chat from Game.
Thanks!

I agree with @Rrramm however just being able to seperate the mic and default audio track would be a very good start then later down the line adding the ability to add multiple tracks for audio…

For example in medal you can already select multiple audio sources as shown in the attached screenshot basically it would be nice to be able to have a different editable audio track for each of those sources.

As I have Game audio on A Spotify Audio on C and Discord audio on D and being able to remove the music I was listening to or the private conversation that was taking place on discord that I don’t want others hearing but I still want to share the game audio/gameplay

Hope this explains what some of us mean but like I said earlier it would definitely be a good start to simply be able to seperate the mic and game audio

@Connor Bridgeman I dont think it would be too hard for them to implement more than two, Medal already allows you to add more than two audio sources so I’d imagine they could just export each one as its own track. Maybe it’s something easier said than done though. Would be nice to have at least 3 tracks though because as many have said, a lot of headsets these days have two outputs so you can seperate game and chat volume and change the mix on the fly, so having those and then your own mic would be great! I understand if they need to start with only two but I think 3 would be really helpful to many people.

We actually are close to having something test-able for mic and windows audio being separated. Separating multiple application audio is doable as well, however there are some things I need to understand better from you all:

  1. Would you want to be able to edit out audio after you take the clip?
  2. Would you want to set the audio tracks before taking the clip?
  3. Are you expecting to be able to open the video in another software to edit it?

I’m basically wondering if we should save the video and audio files to the MP4 we create, or if we should save the audio and video files as separate files, so that you can edit it later. If we do this, then only the game audio would be attached to the actual MP4 and all other audio sources would have their own file. This means if you tried sharing the raw clip file from your computer (not Medal), it would only contain the game audio

@Brandon That would be perfect, what I’m looking for it to save the other audio sources as their own file so I could take that into something like DaVinci Resolve and balance or completely remove some audio if I was saying something stupid or someone in the discord call doesn’t want to be in the clip. If you had the option of tweaking the audio sources in the Medal editor I think that’d be awesome too, but mainly just looking for the audio tracks being saved seperately so I can tweak them after the fact, exactly like you described would be a perfect way of doing so IMO.
So to answer the exact questions:

  1. Yes the ability to remove say my microphone audio would be great!

  2. I think having a toggle so that your audio sources have seperate tracks would be perfect, I’ll attach an image of what it looks like in Shadowplay. Having it right where we add audio sources would be a good spot.

  3. That would be ideal I think, so we could export it and edit it in a really in depth editor like DaVinci BUT I think having the option in your editor would also be pretty sweet and incredibly convient as well, but if that’s difficult to implement I get that

As always thanks for your dedicated support and how you strive to add features the community wants, it’s great to be heard!
(If you want more input on the idea I could message/call on Discord)

@Brandon
1.- Yes. Maybe while we are reviewing our clips after a game session, there are as many tracks as you configured, and you can mute them independently. For example, muting my friends on discord.

2.- I attached how obs does it. You can select how many tracks you want, and then which device goes where.

3.- It’d be enough for me if I could edit it directly on medal’s video editor, but that would also be cool.

Sorry if my english’s not perfect, also, thanks for listening to us!
