For setting up Discord on your PS4, you have to follow the steps provided below.

  • First of all you have to connect the optical cables between your mixamp Pro TR and PS4 for switching audio.
  • Then you have to navigate to Settings > Sound and Screen > Audio Output Settings and change the Primary Output Port to Digital Output (Optical).
  • Now, you have to plug in one end of USB cable into your base station and the other end into the PC.
  • You have to make sure that your base station is in PC mode otherwise it won’t work.
  • Now, you have to open Discord on your PC and the next thing you have to do is change the input device in voice settings to your mixamp.
  • Use the jack I recommended, 3.5mm audio jack and run it from your PC speaker.
  • Finally you have to go back to your voice settings in Discord and modify the output device to your PC speakers.

If you follow the steps carefully then you should be able to talk freely through Discord and use your PlayStation 4 at the same time.

However, you will notice a few problems.

You won’t be able to hear any other audio playing on your computer. It’s because your PlayStation 4 is fetching the primary audio from mixamp pro TR.

All you need to do is just plug in the 3.5 to 3.5mm cable into the port on your PC and the AUX port on your mixamp pro TR.

Then change the Output Device to Speakers.
