    Yes! I would like to use discord to do live sound design streams but am running into this exact problem. Thanks!

    "Stereo Audio" means that there are 2+ audio channels, this allows a single source to output to multiple speakers to emulate directional sound. The upgraded version of that is Surround, and the downgrade is mono. This has nothing to do with playing multiple application's audio through a single output.

    So to explain the function of this, a mic for instance (in most cases) is only mono. So someone talking to you will always be in mono, or a single audio channel. In terms of headsets, this means you will hear them through both ears.

    Now let's say you were streaming a game, and a helicopter flew past you from right to left. In Mono, you would hear it in both ears at the same audio level. In Stereo, you would hear is loudest from the right and marginally from the left, then they will cross-fade until the left is loudest and right is marginal, at which point the left will then lower its level as it gets further 'out of earshot'.

    That being said, the audio channels are controlled by your device, not by discord. So if you are "always" in Mono, then you don't have adequate audio equipment or you don't have an updated device (as any modern device, for the past decade at least, natively supports Stereo).

    For that matter, what you are actually talking about, the ability to select your input source is already a setting in Discord. However, it won't let you pick an 'output' as your input. You would need either an audio controller or streaming platform, such as XSplit, which would allow you to merge you audio sources into an emulated input. I'm not sure what work you are doing with music, but physical hardware such as a mixdeck, launchpad, etc. are all able to do this as well.

    Takun, you seem to have completely missed the point he was making. He's talking about streaming audio which is a feature where the application you choose will be "streamed" in the form of a screen share and audio. What he is comlaining about is that it's all in mono, which destroys the quality of the sound from the application and that matters when streaming things like Fl Studio and shit.

    Definitely need that in my life!

    Even if it's only for Nitro. I'm buying it just to have 1080p sharescreen.

  • Audiodude

    Agree! Pls Discord Staff do available stereo option for audio sharing! At least for Nitro Users! We have stereo mic's but they are useless with only mono option :(

  • Madzia

    I use sound share quite a lot and mono is killing me.

    Please give us an option to use stereo!

  • lucasgatti

    Same here, and the audio screen option for Mac too would be awesome

  • ABrony

    YES, It is exactly what i needed! It would be the best update in my opinion!

  • Sir Fancy

    Still looking for this!

  • Skellybob

    I would love this feature as well. I like working on music with my friends in calls but its hard to help them balence the sound when its all in mono. 

  • ÄÄÄ

  • will “mr admin”

    Please fix this! Very annoying. At minimum have the mono mix play through both speakers!

  • Devil
