Headset / buttkickers

6 posts in this topic

Hello all! 

First of all I like to tell you guys that I come from the Ps4. So I have no clue how this works on PC. And I hope you guys can help me.

The headset I am using is the turtle Beach px4 and I have 2x buttkickers gamer 2 mounted under my rig. 

For the moment I am using my brothers PC to test some simracing and till now it's much better then on console. Only problem I can't figure out how to let my 2x buttkickers gamer 2 work with my headset at the same time.

I also like to use simvibe in the future.

(If that makes any difference in the setup pls tell me) 

Can you guys give me a guide how to connect everything so I can use 2x buttkickers and a headset. Do I need more then one soundcard? 

Hope to hear from you 

Cheers

If you want to run it soundwise, you need a mini-jack splitter: I'm guessing your turtle Beach px4 is not USB and connects via mic mini-jack.

But the most imersive way is to run it via software. But for that you need another soundcard or upgrade your headset to an USB Set.

I have SimCommander4 which is the best software but it's not cheap, because you get the whole package, simvibe, the Accuforce sotfeare and the sim motion in the package. There are some free software arround like SimHub, but it can be quite tricky to set up.

If your motherboard has onboard sound you should be able to use the butt kickers on it and your headphones on the sound card, or the otherway around. If I remember correctly you should plug the butt kickers in the orange port of the sound card if you do not have the Simvibe program.

Yes if you use seat mode is the left channel with is the orange right/left. You also have to configure your sound to 4.0. But it's all explained in a pdf in the simexperience site. it's quite simple to setup.

The original poster does not have the Simvibe program yet. so I believe accirding to the buttkicker setup you connect the shakers to the orange or bass outlet of your sound card. You should then be able to plug the headphones into the green outlet of the same soundcard.
