Wave Link is compatible with other microphones; they can be added as inputs and used as the primary microphone if desired. This also applies to software that emulates being a microphone, as is the case with RTX Voice.
RTX Voice is an AI based noise suppression and removal filter, using an NVIDIA RTX GPU to accelerate the AI process of removing unwanted sound from the microphone audio.
This guide will cover how to use an Elgato Wave:3 or Wave:1 microphone with RTX Voice and how to bring the AI processed audio into Wave Link.
Add Wave:3 or Wave:1 to RTX Voice
1) Download and install RTX Voice from https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/guides/nvidia-rtx-voice-setup-guide/
These are the RTX Voice requirements set by NVIDIA:
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX or Quadro RTX graphics card,
- Driver 410.18 or newer
- Windows 10.
2) Once RTX Voice is installed, open the application
3) From the Input Device dropdown menu, select the Wave:3 or Wave:1 microphone. The device name will be Mic In (Elgato Wave:3) or Mic In (Elgato Wave:1)
4) Check the box Remove background noise from my microphone to activate the AI noise reduction
5) Using the Noise Suppression (%) slider, adjust the percentage of the noise removal. We recommend starting with a low percentage, then adjusting as needed by doing testing.
6) The RTX Voice setup with the Wave microphone is now done and the window can be closed.
To add the Wave microphone which now routed through RTX Voice to a recording or streaming software, choose the Microphone (NVIDIA RTX Voice) as the microphone device.
Add RTX Voice as Input into Wave Link
1) Open Wave Link
2) Hover the mouse cursor over the next available input and click on the + icon
3) From the Input menu select Microphone (NVIDIA RTX Voice)
4) Speak into the Wave microphone, and the audio monitor bars should start moving
Make sure to mute the Wave microphone channel, so as not to cause audio doubling. The NVIDIA RTX Voice with Wave should now be used as the primary microphone.
5) The RTX Voice input can now be controlled just as any other input in Wave Link, with individual levels for both monitoring and the stream mix.
