If you want to live stream or capture the screen of your DAW, including the DAW’s audio output (e.g. for youtube tutroials etc),  you need to activate “Loopback” in your Steinberg Interfaces (like the UR22 MK 2 ). No extra Plugins are required!

With loopback the output signal of your DAW is internally routed to your Mic / Line inputs (channel 1 + 2) so that you are able to record the DAW’s audio output stream at the same time you play it back with your same UR Interface. Or in other words with loopback you make your Steinberg Interface a Full Duplex device.
