Windows 7: Internal or External Audio card with dual output where one can be DSP

Internal or External Audio card with dual output where one can be DSP

I want two individual audio outputs.
One that leaves the PC with unmolested audio.
And one that leaves the PC with DSP'd audio (distance & EQ adjusted).
Any suggestions?


My garage PC.
The TV is not equally in between my garage speakers.
So I need my right speaker vs left speaker distance adjusted so sound arrives at the ears at the same time.
And I'd like to EQ it a little if possible, but not a big deal.

The other sound output would be sent to an aptX Bluetooth transmitter that sends the audio to my safety ear muffs. I do not want this DSP'd.

This way I can be sitting at my garage bench watching sports on the TV with garage speakers on.
Then I can slip on my safety ear muffs and continue listening while I walk around the yard doing mowing or wood working, etc.

My Sound Blaster Z internal card doesn't seem to be capable of this.

Is the bluetooth transmitter connected via USB or via a 3.5mm Jack?

A USB one should appear in the mixer as a seperate device.

They wont play at the same time but if you DSP the speakers on the soundcard. The USB Bluetooth audio device wont be affected by it.

You will need to manually select your output device in the windows volume mixer.

Thanks, yeah I was able to figure out how to do this as separate devices.
Requiring that I manually switch between them.
But that's not as efficient as what I want to do.

While on the subject though, if anyone knows of a double-click shortcut to switch between two "preferred" sound outputs, I'd love to know about it as a fall-back option.
