'listen' to mic, but still have it muted

i am using virtual dub to record videos, and a i have a setup that has my mic played through my headset so when VD records the headset it hears me as well, but there is a delay so it has an Eco and that is a annoying, is there a way to listen to the mic but it doesn't reach the headset or something along those lines?

sugestions for good recording software is welcome also

The problem is most likely a monitor setting in VD. When I was first recording some albums off a turntable using Audacity, I kept getting an echo through the speakers. The USB turntable would normally play the sound through the speakers fine until I tried to record it. Turns out, Audacity has a setting to turn monitor-sound on or off. I turned it off and all worked great. You might check VD for a similar setting.

it's not VD that's echoing, it's my head phones listening to my mic and being delayed, i was just wondering if i could mix in the mic with the game sound with both going to VD but only the game sound going to my headset, but thanx for the reply and advice i'll have a look anyways

Are you using Stereo Mix? It has a listen option too.

USB unforunately has a delay in Vista/7 for audio, ever so slight.

A mic direct into the sound card or an external mixer rig into the sound card is the way to fix it.

I am on singsnap, found that out.
