Adding Spotify audio to a scene

Using StudioPro it is very easy to add Spotify audio to your productions, allowing you to play music during your live streams. There are two different methods of adding Spotify audio to your production:

  1. Desktop Audio: Add Spotify audio which includes other system audio.
  2. Virtual Cables: Only add audio from Spotify with no other desktop sources. (Recommended)


Using Desktop Audio

Firstly you will need to ensure that Desktop Audio is enabled, which will be visible within the Audio Mixer. If Desktop Audio isn't showing in the Audio Mixer, you can very easily enable from Settings. Click the settings-icon.png icon to open the Settings, then navigate to the Audio tab.

Under the Audio Devices section, select Desktop Audio, then change from Disabled to the device that you would like to use for Desktop Audio. Selecting Default will use your systems default audio device. Click Apply and OK.


The Desktop Audio device will now be listed within your Audio Mixer.

You are now ready to add Spotify into your production. Ensure that the Spotify application is open. If you do not have Spotify on your system, you can download and install from the Spotify website. From StudioPro, select the Scene you wish to add your Spotify audio to, then click Add Source.

Select Window Capture from the drop-down, then click OK.


Give your Source a friendly name (i.e. Spotify Audio).


Within the Window option, select [Spotify.exe]. If you do not see this option, please close and re-open the Spotify application. Un-check the Capture Cursor option. Click OK.


Your Spotify window will now appear within your production. You can now transform your window, and apply a crop by selecting your Spotify Source, then clicking Transform and Edit Transform.

Your Spotify source is now added to your production.


Using Virtual Cables

For more control of your audio or you have other applications running on your Desktop which might get captured by Desktop Audio such as Zoom or Teams calls, then you can select a specific device for Spotify to output to. 

Open Sound mixer options settings in Windows. 


Locate the Spotify application and then set the Output Device to an unused Virtual Cable.


Head back to StudioPro, select the Scene you wish to add you Spotify audio to, then click Add Source. From the dropdown, locate Audio Input Capture, then click Add Source.


Give your Source a friendly name (i.e. Spotify Audio).


From the Device dropdown, select the Virtual Cable that you set in the sound mixer options, then click OK.


You have now successfully added Spotify audio to your production!
