I am looking to do simultaneous translation of a conference we are hosting. I would prefer to have the mixing for this project on computer; ideally Ubuntu, as that is what I am the most familiar with. Basically, the software must be able to:

  1. Input from one audio card (wired to speaker's mic)
  2. Record from that input
  3. Output that input to an output on the same card (earphones for me)*
  4. Input from a second audio card (microphone for me)
  5. Output to the second audio card (to a mixer attached to the earphones of those who are having the simultaneous translation done)

What are my options? Is there such a program on Ubuntu?

* This would be optional, since I could split the signal to 1. the computer for recording and 2. my earphones

    This is not good. I just got the Tumbleweed Badge on a Question with a Bounty. ;) – anonymous2 Feb 16 '17 at 14:34
  • Why 2 different audio cards? This decreases your possibilities a lot – user2875404 Feb 16 '17 at 18:34
  • @user2875404, because I don't have an audio card that supports 2 inputs. – anonymous2 Feb 16 '17 at 19:43
