    Unable to separate front and rear audio streams

    Newly build computer with an MSI Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard. Most up to date versions of Nahimic, Realtek Audio manager and MSI overlay/UI (Realtek driver 6.0.8945.1 & UI version all properly installed. Running Win 10 Pro 1909, build 18363.900.

    Praying someone on this forum can help out!! I am trying to simultaneously play audio to my speakers (rear output) and my headset (front output), or at least toggle audio back and forth without having to constantly unplug my headphones if I want to listen to my speakers. With a previous build I could navigate to an options menu in the Realtek audio manager and choose to separate the front and rear audio streams, this allowed me to play headphones OR speakers without having to unplug anything. With this version of Realtek audio manager with the MSI skin that option is ..... missing. Is there a config file I can manipulate, or .ini that manages the audio streams. I have programming experience so manipulating files is not a concern if that's what I need to do.

    If features are missing in the Realtek Audio Console, it means 2 possible things:

    (1) MSI disabled the feature all together.
    (2) MSI disabled the feature in the Realtek Audio Console, but enabled it in another app (like nahimic).

    Here is a beta UAD drivers package for MSI posted by an admin of MSI forum who might interest you : Link

    This Beta driver has added in multi-stream function and please keep this driver if you want to use multi-stream function.
    Multi-stream function will be not included in future drivers due other limitations.

    The link back to MSI's site resolved the issue. THANKS!!!

    I find it very strange the admin at the MSI site indicated "multi-stream function will be not included in future drivers due other limitations." What limitations? I find it very strange this common feature/capability is being purposefully dropped by MSI in their driver.
