Use Android/iOS device as your PC's microphone, using Mumble + Plumble. Or use microphone of one PC on other PC.
Linux-only script, but steps can be replicated on other systems (e.g. using VoiceMeeter).
This is the lowest latency I've ever achieved (sounds almost like local loopback, theoretically 7ms WiFi delay + 2x 10ms codec delay = 27 ms).
Install Mumble (desktop client) + Murmur (server) + Plumble (Android/iOS client). Set all 3 programs to use best quality and minimal latency. Set mobile client to always streaming.
To install Mumble + Murmur on Ubuntu, you can use:
sudo apt install mumble mumble-server sudo systemctl stop mumble-server.service sudo systemctl disable mumble-server.service
For autodiscovery, make sure Avahi is running (it should be on Debian-based systems, but not necessarily on others):
sudo apt install avahi-daemon sudo systemctl start avahi-daemon.service
mic_over_mumbleanywhere - it will use
~/.mic_over_Mumbleas configuration directory. Don't forget to make it executable (
chmod +x mic_over_mumble).
mic_over_mumble. It will start the server on LAN, then start Mumble (if asked for nickname, enter anything other than SuperUser). Then connect your mobile device to the LAN server manually. Please note that Mumble mobile app has some issues.
Then, set up your programs to use either "MonitorofMumble" or "VirtualMic" as input device (they are linked). E.g. in OBS:
If for some reason the script messes up your audio config, you can use
pulseaudio -kto reload PA.
