That is the right half of an (expensive) Ergodox EZ programmable keyboard. I have gaming layers setup on it and use a USB switch to swap it from Mac to Xim when gaming.

Boy am I glad I found this post. I just recently got both a Soundblaster X7 and Elgato HD60s. Obviously you have a bit more technical(complicated lol) setup than I do, but I am not able to xbox party chat to record on the elgato. I have seen videos saying HDMI audio needs turned on and the party chat needs to be set to go to both headphones and speakers. I have done both.

Not sure if your setup is the same as mine, minus all the extra stuff you have. So I have HDMI from Xbox One X to HD60s, then HDMI out to my monitor. I have optical out from the xbox to the X7. My Dt990 heaphones are plugged into the X7, my mic is plugged into an Astro Mixamp TR and then using the stream out port of the mixamp to run a 3.5mm to RCA(red and white) to the line in on the X7. If I switch the X7 to use the built in mic in game capture, that works but sounds terrible. If I switch it to line in it seems to pick up nothing. Any help?

I can't recall the exact setup as I main PS4 not XB1, but I used a splitter from the mic to the XB1 controller as well as to the X7. I posted about it a couple of years ago, it may be around here somewhere.

Padís 32cm, desk is big and perspective is warped :)

Iíve considered replacing the Dex with a Prism XL, but I love the Dexís surface.
