Route your mic to speakers – Ubuntu PulseAudio

When testing my microphone on my laptop for use with skype and google hangouts, I need a way to route the output to the speakers.

Eventually I found this bug on launchpad:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/483812

To sum it up:

pactl load-module module-loopback latency_msec=10 (default is 200)

this command will give you a number as output, for example 27. to stop the loopback execute:

pactl unload-module 27 (replace 27 with the output of the previous command)
