If your referencing the sound tap program I mentioned, there is a 
checkbox that will allow you to use your mic as well. I forget 
what exactly it's called.

do the virtual cables allow one to use mic and stereo mix 
simultaneously?
Also, I used that program you recommended, but I can't figure out 
how to

enable both mic and stereomix. I can only do one or the other.

Re: [Audyssey] Recording PC sound output for thingslikepodcasts/demo's etc. on windows7

2011-11-10 Thread Jacob Kruger
Would still like to be able to do it using only this PC itself, but 
currently the best sort of workaround have for it is I have a unit here 
called the boostaroo revolution -

http://boostaroo.com/

(yes, think it's funny that domain name and product name are spelt 
differently)


Main thing with it, aside from it boosting the output by 400%  to help guys 
save battery life on things like MP3 players, is it means I can use some of 
my audio gadgets without using my one hearing aid as well, and another thing 
is it's completely portable - roundabout the size of my thumb in total - 
uses A A A A batteries (splitting those characters apart since otherwise 
something like jaws will just read the 4 of them as a triple letter combo, 
which it definitely isn't)- and actually has 2 output jack sockets, so you 
can also use it to easily split one audio signal into 2 output signals, so I 
could then plug headphones into one socket, to hear what was happening, and 
plug something like my other laptop's audio jack to its line in into the 
other socket to then handle the recording, but this would still require the 
use of the other laptop to handle the recording, which is specifically what 
I'd like to avoid having to do.

Jacob,
This is the biggest annoyance I find with recent versions of Windows. 
configuring sound settings is a major pain. What I did was buy an external 
soundcard type device that allows me to record from external sources, like 
my playstation 3 for example. If you want to record from the sound card, 
I'm not sure what to tell ya. My sound card allows me to record, but there 
are 2 huge issues. First it sounds like total garbage. and second, I 
cannot unmute the mic while stereo mix is active, because there can only 
be 1 audio device enabled. I haven't found a workaround for the stereo mix 
issue yet, although I would be interested if anyone has any suggestions. 
I've been looking for a good way to do this for years.

OK, while I could just use an external microphone/device to record my 
computer's audio output, including surrounding sounds, maybe me talking 
etc., etc., while using my current primary windows7 ultimate 64 bit 
primary machine, on machines like windows XP, it seemed you could easily 
enough, sometimes use either a sort of virtual audio recording device 
called stereo mix, or one called what you hear, and then using something 
like either audacity, or 2 other recording apps have gotten hold of - see 
below - record just the computers actual audio output, including 
screenreader voices,  a bit more cleanly.


Anyway, on this windows7 64 bit machine, I had to firstly go and make the 
stereo mix recording device show up, since it sort of gets hidden by 
windows7 itself - in start menu search box, I type in:

sound card

and then hit enter on change sound card settings.

Then in that dialogue box, I ctrl + tab to recording page, and in list of 
recording devices, it only showed microphone and audio line in - and this 
is linked to my PC's realtek sound card.


When I then invoked a right mouse click on that list, using the jaws 
cursor, on the context menu item there's a menu item saying something 
like show disabled devices, and then I could find a stereo mix device 
listing, and if I invoked it's properties, I could in fact enable it, 
make changes to it's volume levels, etc. etc.


However, even if I make it the default device - also from that dialogue, 
or specifically choose to use it in either audacity, or the 2 apps listed

but are just silent..?


Most guys who've done something similar to this on windowsXP machines

Right, here goes. Under the property page for stereo mix, head to the 
volume tab and make sure the device isn't muted. Also turn the volume on 
stereo mix up *all* the way. You may be able to find this under system 
tray, speakers/headphones. If this
doesn't work, a totally accessable piece of software which will allow you 
to record soundcard and microphone (though with a 15 day trial) is sound 
tap from www.nchsoftware.com.
