For anyone who's interested in recording their gameplay and you have an nVidia card, GeForce Experience has finally had an update that allows you to split your mic from game sound. I've just done a quick test and it works well. It's not complete yet though!
Ideally you'd want game sound, you mic and TS in seperate channels, (so three audio tracks). GeForce now has two. This still means you cannot seperate out TS channel chat from in game sound. But it's a step in the right direction.
There is however one issue currently with GeForce, and that is for some reason it's got an annoying buzz on the mic channel. However found this vid on YT and it fixes the issue while we wait for nVidia to roll out an official fix, (given how many years it's taken them to finally rollout the ability to seperate mic and game sound I wouldn't hold your breathe!)

Shadowplay lacks a whole lot of features tbh, especially the sepperation of in-game sound and teamspeak. But again, there's DJ software which can do that for you and substract TS audio from main channel. The one thing I hate is that they bumped up the Mbps bitrate of the video without it affecting the source file as the max I'm getting out of my vids is about 80Mbps. Max is now at 130 theoretical if I remember correctly.
For some weird reason when I enable the actual "shadow record" option, my game sometimes freezes for a 1ms and causes unpleasent gaming experience. When manually recording through shadowplay there's no issue

Also, yeah I was having the same issue with GFE only recording 1440p 60fps game play at a bit rate around 80Mbps. Couldn't work out why as in the settings I had it set were "In Game" resolution and 130Mbps.
Turns out the "In Game" bit is the one that is misleading. Instead of choosing "In Game" as the resolution, select 1440p, and you'll see the max bitrate on the slider drops from 130Mbps to 50Mbps! Apparently that is all nVidia think you need to record decent quality 2k gaming footage.
So what I've just done is enabled DSR Factor in nVidia control panel and set it to 2x with DSR smoothing of 33%. This now allows me to select 4k as the resolution in GFE and I can now record at around 120Mbps. Recordings are still coming out at 1440p, but now with a much higher bitrate. My recording drive is a 2Tb (2x1Tb WDD Black HDD in RAID 0) drive. Not sure if this has any effect.
Enabling DSR doesn't seem to have a negative impact on my FPS. To be honest if anything, my mouse seems to move much smoother now. However I've not tested this in "anger" yet, ie. I've not played PvP (just been using the benchmarking option under Graphics settings in R6). I'll be testing these settings out though very shortly and will update this thread.

This is something I used in my young DJ years. http://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/index.htm ( DJ@home ^^ )
It basically comes down to creating an extra output channel and use that as speaker channel for Teamspeak. And in Windows you'd have to activate ' listen to this device '. So GFE will have no clue about any TS sound. Maybe the Windows part is already included in the software , but 6-7 years ago it wasn't :-)
