Adding a 2nd soundcard to Workstation 16

Jump to solution

Hello,

I need a second soundcard in my VM. My primary card is from realtek and the 2nd a Soundblaster G6.

I can connect the Soundcard via USB but  I'm not able to get a clear sound - its jerky and stuttering Smiley Sad

Has someone an idea how to get the USB G6 fully functional on Workstation 16?

I've tested the night long Smiley Sad

If i switch from USB 3.1 to USB 2.0 support, the Soundblaster G6 will work fine.

If I'm changing back to 3.1 the G6 will not work correctly.

Awesome!

OK, it works Smiley Happy

This is great for fixing my sound issue, but i have some other USB components that require USB 3.0.  My VM only has an option of 2.0 or 3.1.  The sound from the USB Microphone and headset (Blue Yeti) sounds great when it is set to USB 2.0, but in order to get my CamLink working I have to use the USB 3.1 setting.  I cannot figure out how to get both of them working at the same time.
