Routing clients’ audio streams into independent virtual audio channels.

Hi,

I would like to use Zoom in a performance of moving musicians/clients remotely connected with a host operating  as a central hub. 

I need to process the audio stream of each musician/client independently by routing it into different virtual audio channels/devices such as those provided by Rogue Amoeba’s Loopback. 
The most trivial solution would be to have one hosting computer for each musician/client and then routing the audio output of each into a DAW controlled by another computer. This solution is going to be quite expensive in term of hardware and licences.
Another solution would be to consider each musician hosting an independent meeting. Then, I might use the hub-computer as a client with the “join different meetings simultaneously on desktop” option to switch between the different musicians/hosts audio streams. Still, I would need a licence for each musicians. And moreover, Zoom won’t let me route the audio of each meeting into a different virtual audio channel/device.
Any hints on the issue?
Thank you.

Hi @FabioCC it's been some time since you've posted this discussion! As Zoom has 1 selected output for all audio I don't believe there is the possibility of having separate audio outputs for each participant without your proposed suggestion -- now that I'm thinking about it. This is a great suggestion and I appreciate you explaining how it would help you out. Currently, our product team reviews all feature requests submitted via our feedback form https://zoom.us/feed. I highly encourage you to submit this feature!
