I want to listen to my headset while playing DDo in Wine through one monitor and listen to music through another monitor. I can switch between monitors but I can't listen top both at the same time. In Windows 7 I have the option to select my headset but there is no option in DDo while playing in wine. My sound is clear and works. I just can't figure out how to both at the same time.
Thank you

<Solved> Hi everyone. My issues have been fixed. I can now split all sounds to any or all audio outputs. Spiecal thanks to Matt Harttley over on YouTube. He released a video on Oct.25,2017 called "Linux PulseAudio doesn't suck"
In his video he walks you through the steps and he also posts the code in the notes on adding the additional programs so you can have all you speakers doing what you want.
I can now listen to music on one output while listening to my game sounds through another set of speakers.
I hope this helps. It really helped me.
