The difference here is that Raul isn't really recording from
speakers. What he's doing is recording the output from his
soundcard, and mixing in a recording of his voice.
The way you would accomplish this would be to:
1. Set your default recording device to be your soundcard.
I'm not sure how you do this on xp, but it's somewhere in the
sound properties, under recording.
2. Once you've got your machine set up to record from the
soundcard, you can use any recording program (the default one
works fine) set up something to capture your voice. THis could be
3. Start both recordings are nearly (as close as possible
for mixing purposes) the same time, and begin playing. as you
play, everything that your computer sends out will be recorded,
and your voice, will be taken care of by your recorder.
4. Once your done recording, get both recordings somewhere
you have access to them. If possible, make sure they're wav
5. The following presumes you have the windows xp sound
recorder program installed and working. Once you're done
recording, open up one of the files (preferably the one you

to special (or edit possibly) and choose mix with file. A
dialogue should pop up, point it to your other file. If you
opened your voice recording, point the recorder to your soundcard
recording, or vice versa.
6. Finish mixing the files by choosing ok or mix (I forget
which one it is). Once your done mixing, fix the volume of the
file so that you can here everything. If the soundcard recording
is at a low volume, candle your changes, open that recording and
raise the volume. If the voice is low, do the same. It shouldn't
be to hard to get the two file to nearly the same volume.
7. ONce you've got both files mixed and audible, save your
changes. You now have a full recording with both your voice and
If this is really confusing, your can download sound tap
and get that installed. This program will allow you to
record directly from your soundcard, and if you have a
microphone, it will allow you to record from both devices at
once. The program has a fifteen day trial, and is entirely
