Default Monitoring streaming audio/music into Vent channel?

I know similar questions regarding streaming music through Vent3 have been asked, but I still havent found a solution to my specific issue Im trying to address...

Using Ventrillo 3, SoundFlower, a USB Mic/Headset, the OSX Core Audio options, I have yet to figure out a way to play music through a separate channel on vent while being about to monitor the music at the same time.

I can see that there is sound emitting from my user input into the Vent channel as indicated by the speaker icon, but I am unable to hear, or monitor, my own sound input...

Is there a way to do this easily? Or am I better off just routing the sound through some spliter cables and what not?

...Ideally I want to hear the music streaming thru the channel while simultaneously being able to talk over it and hear incoming voice chat...

Thanks.

you can setup the music in a different channel then drop a 'phantom' into that channel as phantoms are 'listen' only. then create a binding key that will mute that channel when you want to talk and don't want to hear the music.

im trying to understand what you meant by that... i see the option to 'add/remove phantom', but selecting that option provides me with nothing, -like nothing happens at all, no menu, no additional option, or anything...

i set in/out in vent to SoundFlower along with the Core Audio i/o to SoundFlower... I can see music , or sound streaming into the channel, but there still see to be no way to monitor the sound im hearing thru my own user...

you have to rt-clik on the channelname then select 'add phantom'. you will then see your acct name in that channel with a "P" in front of it.

if it's greyed out then you may not have permission to add a phantom

this is from an old thread so i don't know if it's still valid, but worth looking into.
