Audio question

I doubt if what I am asking is really possible but worth a try.
Basically, I like to listen to music on my PC but occasionally SWMBO would like to listen to something different when she's downstairs. Not having another system available for use I let her have her wishes. But I wondered if there was software that would direct the audio from a player to just the headphones and another to just the speakers so I can listen to something different.
Thought I'd give it a shot in asking...

Re: Audio question

What are the sources of the two different pieces of music the pair of you wish to listen to?

Re: Audio question

One thing that comes to mind is if you only have one sound card (normal) then you would need a second one installed.
You should then be able to tell Winamp for example to output to one card while other software outputs to the other.

Re: Audio question

It's really not worth going to any expense over this. At present I just use the on-board sound.
Thanks anyway Smiley
