Hey gang,
I bought a 2i4 a while ago for some home-studio work. Then I noticed that I could use it as a general monitor on my PC, however the 2i4 will output 4-channel audio to my stereo headphones. Anything on channels 3/4 is not sent to the headphones.

Is there a way to force 2-channel output? Or have channels 1/2 mirrored to channels 3/4? Thanks!

I bet this is a setting problem.
Headphones should give you main monitor output also.

I know you have to choose :
Output 1/2 or output 3/4.

Is there a soft mixer available or something?
Check for headphone settings.. I guess something is routed incorrectly

Please let us know your progress...

Hey Angelie, thanks for the response!

I found a tool called Voice Meeter to soft-mix my system audio. After some tinkering, I think this may be a viable solution but there is still some work to do on my end. Duplicating channels 1/2 onto 3/4 is actually pretty easy to do, but I learned that this doesn't solve my problem. I need to mix 1/3 and 2/4 together.

Ah! I figured it out!

Attached a snapshot of Voicemeeter. "Mix Down" is just what I need. According to the manual (who would have guessed?), anything higher than stereo (4, 5.1, etc) gets mixed to 2ch.
