Finally, I take my pass-throught (usb headset) from my script.  I let 
my webcam on, this one has microphone inside so it can usefull if I 
don't use the microphone on my gaming headset.  Sound seem fine 
eventought the microphone is on my webcam.  By removing the 
pass-throught that did fix the problem, i have with not having all 
sound from my desktop inside my headset.
