I regularly get asked what people need to do to use their mixer with multiple inputs and outputs to live stream and separate game sound from Discord/voice chat or from music, so I put together this "virtual walkthrough" of how you might use the Yamaha MG12XU mixer to route your audio sources for streaming.

These general principles will apply to most mixers - just account for the available sub-mixes, aux sends, etc. on your specific mixer.

✖ NOTE: Yes, I'm aware you can achieve similar results with a lot of patience and some software, such as VoiceMeter Banana or Virtual Audio Cable. Here's a tutorial on that from Battle(non)sense: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Gzpp98mW3Y
