Use any Microphone

Recommended Posts



I bought a professional audiointerface (not soundcard) and connected a studio microphone to it.

This did not work with Swyx. (No sound from mic while phoning.


After a lot of testing i found out, how you can make (maybe) every mic working:

There is a software, that creates a virtual audio cable available at:


This creates two new devices in your sound config panel.


  • Now simply go to the windows audio configuration panel, recording section.
  • Doubleclick your microphone device entry
  • Go to the second tab (in german it's "Abhören"; i think in english it's "playback")
  • Activate to use this device as playbacksource
  • As device to playback on chose "CABLE Input (VB-Audio Virtual Cable)"
  • confirm and close all the sound controlpanel windows
  • Finally choose the CABLE Output Device in Swyx as microphone


and all should work fine

(Only tested on my local machine, no warranties)


Hope this helps some poeple.

PS: IMHO it's a shame, that Swyx programmers were not able to handle these problems and the users have to do this kind of stunts to get their headsets/microphones working.
