Introduce an audio telephone caller using Google Voice

Introducing guests using audio telephone, or allowing guests to call into your production can add huge value to your Cre8 productions. One way this can be achieved is by using a web-based VoIP solution such as Google Voice. Please note, Google Voice only supports US telephone number format.

For this, you'll need Virtual Cables, which are included within the Cre8 installation. However, if you don't have Virtual Cables installed, please follow the guide here.

Firstly you will need to sign in using your Google account. If you do not have a Google account, simply sign up.

If this is your first time using Google Voice, you will need to get a number and setup your devices. Click Continue.

Select your region.

Click Send Code, enter your 6-digit code, then click verify.

Once you have registered or signed in, you will be re-directed to the dashboard. From here, open the audio settings by clicking the headset icon in the top-right corner.

Set the Speakers device to one of your other Virtual Cables. For example VB-Audio Cable D. You can also set Ringing as a separate Virtual Audio Cable which will allow you to add a ringing tone into your Cre8 production.

You are now ready to add the source into your Cre8 production. Select the Scene that you would like to add your caller into, then click Add Source.

Select Audio Input Capture. Then click Add Source.

Give your Source a friendly name (i.e. Telephone Call). Click OK.

Choose the Audio Device. This will be the Virtual Cables you chose when configuring in Google Voice. Click OK to add your Source. 

If you would also like to add a ringing tone after configuring above, repeat these steps and add the Audio Device that you assigned to Ringing.

You are now ready to test. Within your Google Voice window, open the audio settings and click Test next to the Speaker device.

If you have configured correctly, you will see the audio bars within the Audio Mixer show audio.
