How To Play Sounds Through Discord?
What is the best way to play soundboard through Discord? To play soundboard on Discord, you need to route your microphone through a virtual audio device. This is a detailed guide that explains how soundboard works on Discord.
Step 1. Pick an audio device and install it
To set up a soundboard for Discord, first of all, you have to choose a virtual audio device like VB-CABLE, download it, and install it on your PC.
IMPORTANT: When installing a Discord soundboard, your VB-cable is already installed if your board is Resonance or Soundpad.
Step 2. Configure your Discord microphone as CABLE
Select CABLE Output from the User Settings > App Settings > Voice & Video section in Discord.
Then, everyone in Voice Chat will be able to hear every sound you play on your machine. The problem is that nobody can hear your mic since you changed your input device. Let’s move on!
Step 3. Use your virtual audio device to route your microphone
Go to System > Sound in Windows. Choose the Microphone input device under Input. Under Device properties, click the button.
Click Additional device properties under Device properties. Go to the Listen tab in the pop-up window. Select CABLE Input under Playback through this device under Listen to this device.
The end is near! Audio from Discord, all other desktop audio, and your microphone will play directly into your Voice Chat.
