As of now, I’m up to three comms channels: Mumble, Mumble PRI, and SC VOIP. Moreover, I have my Mumble channel set to a joystick button. The problem is, I use a simple program to record (Shadowplay) that allows for only one non-joystick push-to-talk channel. Either I leave the mic open or cover only one channel.
I found this solution, if one is comfortable running random software as administrator on one’s machine:
It basically mutes the mic unless one of the push-to-talk buttons is pushed.
Problem is, it doesn’t recognize the joystick. If the joystick control panel does not allow mapping, one can utilize a second program to do that, like joytokey.net/en/. In my case, I mapped it to a key SC does not use (the quote button). One still must have BOTH set up in Mumble shortcuts.
Now I can capture all my outgoing comms without leaving the mic open!
