Build in audio mixer to be able to mute programs on stream
Sometimes I'd like to mute specific programs for a stream (i.e. Discord, Chrome, etc). It'd be nice to allow users to adjust specific program volume/mute programs entirely without having to setup an external program.
We recently launched the Advanced Audio Mixer feature. This feature requires you to install an update to the audio mixer inside the global audio settings page. Once installed, you will be able to add individual applications as audio sources into your audio mixer. This will allow you to control audio being output to your stream on a per-app basis. An easy example to visualize is with the Advanced Audio Mixer, you could add Discord to your audio source list and mute it for your stream, while still hearing it locally on your PC.
In conjunction with this new feature, we also added support to exclude individual audio sources from your Clips and VODs. This setting is available in the audio source settings when adding or editing audio sources.
Lastly, we also added a “Sound Check” mode that allows you to play back the exact audio being output to your stream. This mode will mute any audio on your machine that is not being sent to your viewers so you can easily hear exactly what is being sent to the stream.

Hope you are releasing the compatibility of "Soundtrack by Twitch" at the same time ! :)
Hi, is there any ETA on when this will be added? Would love to be able to mute individual programs.
is it possible to get some feedback about the "audio mixer topic" ?
It is the only thing i am really missing in Twitch Studios.
Still waiting ? :/
This. All day. Please!
Been using Twitch Studio instead of Obs the last week and really the only feature I'm missing is the ability to use my multi CAble inputs to mute my VOIP while I stream.
Yeah, I've hardly touched it and it's one dimensional. With that many things going on there isn't much, for myself with windows, has an answer for - outside of fumbling around the windows settings. I'm glad to have come across this topic. I'll probablyadd more on the topic.
EDIT: You might even be able to get a tiny extension that would do the trick. It doesn't have to be professional studio quality. It only needs enough sources to allow you to utilize. Think of it as a pretty on the eye version of the current one, with a bit more clarity of information.. provided it lists all one has playing at a time.
yup much needed for people that have an external mixer with a huge stream setup, we can't setup different sound inputs for mic + line in + any other sound card input to separate all sound sources.
Without this a wide range of people can't unfortunately use the soft :)
This is needed for VoiceMeeter users! The ability to add multiple audio and video sources is a needed addition.
i agree, no way to mute audio from videos added
This. The ability to change volume for especially 1) game sound, 2) voice coms and 3) music at an individual basis would make it worth swapping softwares straight off the bat. It is one of the most iffy setups to sort out yourself and one of the setups that affects a stream the most - do want!
