Multiple audio devices, stereo mix and a microphone

Q: Multiple audio devices, stereo mix and a microphone

Hello,

I'll try to explain this as simply as possible... Currently, I have speakers, headphones and the headphone microphone plugged in. I'd like to record my Skype conversations using stereo mix, but stereo mix only picks up what goes through my speakers and not what goes through my headset. I've tried tinkering with the settings and haven't been able to get stereo mix to record what goes through my headset instead of my speakers.
How do I get stereo mix to record headphone audio instead of speaker audio?

For the past few hours, I've also been trying to get Audacity to record both stereo mix and my microphone. From what I've read, Audacity can't record two inputs at the same time, so is there a way to combine stereo mix and my microphone?

I'm using the latest Realtek HD drivers, if that helps any.

Thanks for your time.

You might want to check out VAC(Virtual Audio Cable). It is not a "free" program, so depending on you needs, it might help. here is a link to info about it:Virtual Audio Cable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
and here is a link to download VAC:
Virtual Audio Cable - CNET Download.com

I used it myself to share music I was listening to over video chats. The program can be used in a number of ways. I no longer use, since I currently have a laptop with Stereo Mix, and that meets my needs just fine. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have recently bought a cheap USB headset (OVLENG Q2) and even though the sound works fine the microphone dosent seem to work.

When I go to Audio Manager > Audio Devices > Recording the bars at the side of the microphone are always green.

Go to Accessories (Start Menu) and open Recorder.

Try a test recording.

Are you getting sound through speakers?

Hi, I have a Dell XPS 420 running Windows 7.
When I first tried plugging in some speaker they were not detected so I changed the BIOS to use the on board audio (from auto select to on) and my speakers have worked ever since.
Yesterday I tried using a microphone (turtle beach x12 headset, speakers worked) and it is not detected (front and back panel). I tired a different microphone encase the headset was faulty and it wasnt detected either. So I tried my headset on my other computer and it worked straight away).
I've been reading forms etc but cant find a solution...
Any ideas?

Thanks

Doug
PS. I tried another headset of mine which is only usb (no speaker or mic jack) and it works.
Also as the XPS 420 isn't sold with windows 7 drivers can be a bit of a bind
 

A:Microphone not detected (no audio devices installed)

Device detection is a function of the drivers (ie: audio drivers). So if it's not working properly, I'd suspect the drivers. If there aren't any Win7 drivers, then your best bet would be to get an addon sound card with Win7 support.

This issue popped up I'd assume in the past few days, but I only noticed yesterday for the first time. I use a Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 (don't know if that's of any importance, but I figured I'd type in case it does) headset. I noticed, when playing a game, my mic was not working. I later went into Control Panel and into Sound to see what the problem was. Oddly enough, there was nothing listed in Playback or Recording. I still received (and can still receive) sound from the headset. When in game, I'm assuming the only reason it doesn't work is because the Steam (the game hosting client) client doesn't have any headset to detect, as windows does not. I've tested a different headset (of the exact same model) on my computer, exact same issue. I tested my headset on a different computer (again, of the exact same model; my dad and I have similar hardware, an XPS 8700). So the issue is definitely on my computer, and not with the headset.

Again, as I've stated: The headphones work fine, audio goes right through them. Yet it isn't being detected in the Sound tab of control panel. I'd assume the microphone works fine (Outside of Steam, where I mainly use it), though I'm not sure where I'd test this. Any ideas on what I need to do would be greatly appreciated. I'm new to this forum, so sorry if I didn't post any necessary information.

I have three audio devices on my pc (ATI HDMI, Via HD onboard and steelseries usb soundcard) and through all devices I only get audio out of the left channel. I have tried two pairs on headphones and my tv speakers all with the same results. I have looked at all the balancing end everything is set to even on both channels.

Windows 7 X64 ultimate
M4A78 PRO Mobo Via HD audio
Steel Series Usb SoundCard

A:Audio Only out of one channel (multiple headsets and audio devices)

As you have three devices, each one separately generates the sound. The only thing common would be the sound itself, such as a wav or mp3 file.

When you use the PC's sound chip (VIA HD) that is one hardware device and the wired on the motherboard output jacks. If you use a USB connected sound device then you are using that device to generate the sound and that device's physical jacks. If you use the ATI HDMI, most video cards have their own built in audio chip (unless this is an old video card that uses S/PDIF connection to the motherboard) and thus again everything separate for audio generation and connection.

One comment, if you have both the Via on board audio and the usb connected sound card enabled at the same time there can be conflicts and sound problems. Not the balance problem you have but there can be problems. If you want to use the VIA then physically disconnect the USB. If you want to use the USB, disable the on-board audio in the BIOS.

Hi, I recently purchased a HP Pavilion dv6974 Laptop, it came installed with Vista 64-bit. It works fine and all, just one thing I want to figure out.

The laptop has built-in speakers, a built-in mic, 2 headphone jacks and 1 microphone jack. I plugged my headset into one of the headphone jacks, my headset microphone into the microphone jack, and my external speakers into the second headphone jack.

What I wish to do is to set it up in a way that I can play music through my speakers, and Ventrilo through my headset.

The way I did this before on my desktop was that there was this option in the Realtek Audio Manager called "enable playback multi-stream" that separated the two audio jacks on the computer (one in the back, and one in the front). Then I was able to choose a different audio driver for Ventrilo, and use the default one for music. This was on XP, and I only had one sound card btw.

And now for Vista, I've tried looking through the Audio Device Manager and the Realtek Audio Manager but couldn't find anything that would help much, except in the Realtek Audio Manager there's this "tie up all input jacks something something, etc" that sounded like it was what I was looking for, but all it did was mess up my microphone.

To add more to this confusion, there is actually another audio device in the Audio Device Manager, but it's the Digital Audio Receiver, and I don't really know what that does.

I've asked about this problem elsewhere, and some peopl... Read more

hi, i'm relatively new here, so i'm not really sure how to do this but alot of my games are having problems i.e. ? has cause in invalid page fault in unknown. I am led to believe it is a soundcard problem, i use an onboard sound card with the VIA VT1612A 2-channel audio Codec and i look in multimedia properties under audio devices, i had two different ones, Audio for via Ac'97 Enhanced Audio Controller(WDM), and Audio for Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM), i was told by a friend to uninstall the drivers and then reinstall to fix this, i did, now on top of those two devices i have a second Audio for Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM). I also have three MIDI for WDM-based Device. ANd Mixer for VIA AC'97 Enhanced Audio Controller (WDM), along with two Mixer for Vinyl AC'97 Codec Combo Driver (WDM),this may be normal, but like i said i'm relatively new at this and it doesn't really look normal, so can someone please help me? Thank You

A:need help, multiple audio devices

Look at the back of your computer. Do you have onboard sound AND a seperate PCI sound card? If so then you need to disable the onboard sound in the BIOS setup and use only the PCI sound card.

Now go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall ALL VIA AC97, AC97, Vinyl audio drivers and anything else that looks like it goes to sound drivers.

Then go to Device Manager and uninstall/remove all remaining VIA/Vinyl/AC97 devices listed under the Multimedia heading. Reboot only after all are removed.

Then download the latest VIA Vinyl drivers. When you first run the new driver setup program it will look to see if there are still drivers installed, if it finds any then it give you the option to uninstall them. Do that and reboot.

Then run the VIA installation again and install the drivers, and reboot.

At any point Windows may redetect the sound card and want to reinstall the drivers - let it. Do NOT click Cancel on the Found New Hardware Wizard. If all goes well prior to install the latest driver the sound card should be detected as a PCI Multimedia Device and that means all the drivers will have been removed.

Here's the latest drivers: http://www.viaarena.com/Driver/Vinyl_AudioCode_v600a_M.zip
They are in a ZIP file, once extracted you need to run the SETUP.EXE file to install the drivers.

I'm not entirely sure if this is a Windows Sound issue or a hardware issue, so I'm asking this question both here and in a Windows Community Forum. Is it possible to output audio to multiple devices (i. e., can one assign more than one "Default Device")?  For example, can I output to the USB-S/P-Dif device connected to my stereo and the bluetooth device driving my outdoor speakers simultaneously? I have an Envy dv7-7255dx, with the IDT Hi-Def audio codec, running 64-bit Windows 10 Home. Thanks!

I've googled this endlessly with no result and I'm guessing it isn't possible but I may as well ask.

My laptop has one audio/mic port. I'm cheap and had a splitter laying around, my headphones, and a set of ear buds with a mic on it I combined to use as a headset.

This works fine, however, since the sound output is being split to both my ear buds and headphones, it doesn't sound as good and some things are faint, which isn't good for gaming.

Is there a way to manage my audio devices so that my ear buds is mic only and no sound, and my headphones get all the sound? I've found no options in Windows, just playback (speakers) and recording (mic). I assume because it's only one jack it isn't, but it can't hurt to ask.

Hi guys. I have my TV connected via HDMI through my video card to my computer and also run sound through my computers speakers with the onboard sound. Normally I just change the audio device before opening a program depending on whether I want it on the TV speakers or computer speakers. The problem is that sporadically when I select the device for the TV speakers it doesn't provide any sound and no combination of turning the TV on and off, changing the audio device back and forth etc will let give sound on the TV speakers (but when i change to the computer speakers it works fine). I can't seem to reproduce the problem either, it just happens sporadically and the only solution is to restart the computer.

Hi, I very much want to know the answer to this problem. My setup is simple. I am working with my Mobo's onboard sound card (Mobo is Asus M3A32-MVP Wi-Fi) and here's the thing. I see multiple devices in both Vista and Seven (have a dual boot) - I see the front headphone jack, the SPDIF, the rear audio port (it's 5.1 surround) and also an HDMI. I've just recently bought two bluetooth headphones and I have paired them and see them in the audio devices panel too.

Now this is what I want to do. I want to hear the audio on all the devices simultaneously. If I turn on the audio system (connected to the SPDIF) then I should hear the audio there. If I connect multiple Bluetooth headphones, I should hear the audio from my comp on any and all of them.

So, why can't I do this? Apparently this was the default behaviour for Windows in XP. That is, any audio played was available on all connected devices. Now, here in Vista and Seven we have a major downgrade in that we have to select a SINGLE audio output device as the "default" device and when a device is selected as such, the audio stream is SOLELY passed into it. THIS IS SO VERY WRONG! It is so illogical to do something like this in today's world of changing and evolving multi-media environments. I mean, what if my Mom wants to hear my music from the kitchen at the same time that I'm listening to it as I work on my desktop. She should be able to simply plugin and start listening to what I'm hearing! This is RIDICULOUS!

I have no audio, but when I go to (right-click sound icon in tray) --> Playback Devices --> Playback tab --> right click "Speakers / Headphones Realtek High Definition Audio" --> Configure, then in Speaker Setup dialog:
* If I select Quadraphonic in the "Audio channels" list, I hear sound for the RL (rear-left) and RR (rear-right) speakers, with my stereo speakers plugged into the black jack in back. I cannot get sound when testing the regular L and R speakers in Quadraphonic mode; I've tried all 5 jacks.
* When I select Stereo, then clicking L or R speaker icon to test results in no sound, again no matter which of the 5 jacks i plug my stereo speakers into.
* So the only way I have sound is in Quadraphonic mode, but only for the back speakers. Therefore I cannot hear regular stereo output from applications, such as Youtube in Chrome.
This seems like a bug, or a highly unintuitive aspect of Realtek's or Dell's software at best. Any ideas on how to solve? (Beside buying full surround sound speakers)

I finally got the sound bit working (opening nvidia control panel refreshes the audio playback devices list), but I have several erroneous devices that appear (and disappear) when connecting the TV.

How do i setting to record the both StereoMix and Microphone??
Anyone help me please..

A:How to record both Stereo Mix and Microphone

If you have stereo mix, any input should be heard on the PC's speakers and also any input should be available for recording.

For example if you want to record your voice with a music file, you should be able to do both at the same time. Computer mic's are only for spoken voice and not singing. I you want to sing you would need a better quality USB mic or if you use a standard P.A. mic it will need a preamp as the mic level is too low for PC sound card. You won't be able to split the voice on to one track and the music to another with the PC's sound device.

If you want to record voice on one track and music (or whatever) on another track you will need a recording interface device, such as a USB connected two channel unit. e.g. a Focusrite Scarlet 2i2, or some other similar device.

As a side note, the "CD audio" standard (and wav file standard) is 16 bit 44.1Khz, not the 24 bit 48Khz you show. If you have a 24 bit/48Khz recorded file, it would have to be converted to 16 bit/44.1Khz if you wanted to burn an Audio CD. I have a recording studio using Sonar X2 software.

Hey guys. I've been working at setting some a justin.tv stream for various games. I'm using flash media encoder to capture the stereo mix input which is fine, it broadcasts whatever sound comes from my computer.

I've tried altering all of the settings I can find but I cannot seem to stop this from happening. I'm sorry if my wording is kind of off I'm not 100% sure how to phrase parts of this.

Drivers do not cost anything if you download them from your PC or laptop manufacturer's website - anywhere else that charges for them, it's a scam.

If it's a PC and it was self-built or built-to-order (in other words not factory-built & no brand-name) download drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website - they're free too.

A:No Stereo Mixer in Recording Devices

Some sound cards do NOT support stereo mix, regardless of settings.

You can try older drivers--XP or Vista--in compatibility mode. That works in some cases.

If not, you would need to buy another internal or external sound card that is known to support stereo mix in Windows 7.

Hey, I've been broadcasting on a site called Justin TV for a while now and I'd really like to be able to do something. Some channels have people call them on skype and they can have a conversation on the show with both people being able to talk. I'd really really like to be able to do this, but I haven't been able to figure out how to get my mic set up so I can mix both the sound output from my computer (the skype call or music, whatever) and my microphone. I have multiple different mics, all of them are USB mics though. I don't know if I'm not understanding this right, but shouldn't I be able to mix those together? I got Stereo Mix working on my computer so I can have whatever I'm hearing be sent back as a sound input, thus I can use it as a "microphone" for broadcasting, but I can only use that, I can't mix in my own mic with the stream. Does anyone know a way to do this? Maybe a program? Me and a friend of mine like to do the show together but I'm moving so the option for him to come over to my house is sorta out of the question, I was hoping we'd be able to use Skype to do it.

I have a PC currently running Windows 7 Ultimate using small Dell speakers plugged into the front jack of my computer to play music and using the mic from Durherm DR-H10 headset/mic combo on the front mic jack. I have been trying to broadcast Youtube videos and music to my brother and get the mic working so that we can talk while listening/watching what I broadcast via Skype. He uses a pair of USB headphones with his desktop.

I think we got it working at least once, but we can't get it to work again. He's often busy during the day so I thought I'd try using my Android's Skype app and my PC Skype and different accounts to test it out. I'm sure a phone is different in many ways from a PC in regards to these sound issues, but I am able to broadcast to it and the main problem still persists.

I've been using the program Voicemeeter Banana to set up two channels, Stereo Mix and mic, and then having the Hardware Output for it be Realtek Digital Output. On Skype for the mic option in Audio Settings I'm using Voicemeeter Output and am using "Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio") for the Speakers option.

The problem is that although I am able to broadcast the music my computer is playing to the other person as well as my voice at the same time with no overlapping, whenever the other person talks they seem to interrupt both the music and mic until they stop talking. Is there any way to fix this that will not have any echos... Read more

A:Microphone and Stereo Mix on Skype Gets Interrupted Whenever The Other Line Talks

Okay guys, I still have the same problem and no one's responded here in a week.

I'm trying to use various online programs like VAC (Virtual Audio Cable) and Skype to try and eliminate the interruptions, but they don't seem to work. Are these pesky interruptions just a part of using Stereo Mix and mic on Skype or is there something I can do? Is there a way to play mu computer's sounds and mic over Skype without using Stereo Mix?

I can't believe there doesn't seem to many guides on this covering these interruptions as it continues to happen with multiple applications. Often, when I talk the hosted music and other person's mic are cut off as long as I'm talking. Please help me out.

What I'm trying to do is use Fraps to record my game, my Teamspeak conversation, and my own voice at the same time. Normally I could simply enable stereo input and turn mic feedback on (So I can hear my own mic through my speakers). However, I am using two sound cards to accomplish this.

Why? I can use one card for audio through teamspeak/skype while recording the computer audio through my other card. This allows me to talk on teamspeak and skype while recording, instead of them hearing my game.

This is great to have set up as I record alot, but there is one thing missing. I want one of two things, either to have the recording also record my microphone (Which is input on a different sound card, so does not go through stereo input on the second card).

Or, I want to separate the audio from Teamspeak and Skype to the other card, except still hear it through my speakers. I thought of using a physical splitter, except backwards. I mean instead of plugging in two pairs of speakers to one input, plugging one pair of speakers into two ports.

Thats impractical in 99% of cases though, so I doubt such a device even exists. So back to plan A. Is it possible to make microphone from sound card A to come back through sound card B?


I know this might be confusing, but thats sort of why I came here to maybe get some answers. I doubt any software does this online, and if it did I wouldn't know what to search for to find it.

Hi

I've been stuggling with this for a few hours now and am at the end of my wits..

I've got two audio devices that I would like to link to my PC at once.
I've got one plug connected to the back panel, and one to the front. But one always cuts off the other. In my sound devices, the system registers them both as: "speakers, VIA High Definition Audio, Standard device"

Is there any way that I can connect them both at once, and still have both of them outputting audio?

I hope the internet will save the day!

Many thanks in advance!

Hi!

I have two USB audio devices that I cannot seem to properly install drivers for.
Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 & KORG MicroKONTROL

I am in communication with both product tech support teams but so far they have not offered a successful solution. As the same issue is occurring with multiple devices I thought it might be an OS issue.
I run Win 7 Home Premium x64

The problem is as follows:

The product drivers install correctly without error. However, instead of showing up in the Device Manager in either USB Controllers or Sound Controllers they both show in Other Devices with a yellow exclamation mark.
I have tried the following fix from this site (USB Driver - General Fix for Problems) and this actually enabled me to access a portable HDD that wasn't working, but it didn't fix the issue for my 2 audio devices.
I have also tried right clicking on the devices in Other Devices, selecting Driver Update. I then find the correct drivers listed but when I hit install I get the following error message on both:
"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. One of the installers for this device cannot perform the installation at this time."

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A:Audio USB Devices showing under Other Devices in Device Manager

Could it be the two devices are competing with each other and the driver installer gets confused? Details on the devices and the needs to use two of the same type probably would be helpful.

I want to be able to play music from my PC and send it to my audio system to play throughout the house. I ran a cable from the computer's headphone output jack on the front of the PC to the audio system's RCA input jacks. It works OK but I have to boost the audio levels from the computer's audio slider way up in order for it to sound OK. The problem with this I have to plug in and unplug and adjust the levels every time (when the cable is connected, the PC speakers are muted.) Is there a way to adjust the PC's settings so that a cable connected to the headphone jack DOES NOT mute the speakers AND will play at a predetermined level regardless of where the audio slider is set? (i.e. a constant line-level output.) Thanks!

Not that I know

the RCA inputs are expecting a different type of signal
The headphone output is very low output and headphones are quite high impedance

you can purchase a USB Audio adapter , which would enable you to do what you are after - its the sort of thing DJs use where the channels outputs can be individually controlled and levels set
they are not expensive

Hmmm...
What I want to do is to be able to send the audio via analog or digital from my computer to my 70's high power stereo as cleanly as possible. The only problem is that the CPU is 30 feet away from the stereo and there is no way to get them closer. (Pioneer, Mcintosh, Bose, PhaseLinear) 30 feet of preamp wire supresses the high frequencies.

I thought that I saw a wireless that would receive form the CPU, perhaps a network type item. My CPU is a stand alone plugged onto a FiberOptic Eithernet. I would like to add another CPU to the circut though.

Perhaps this thread should be in the Networking forum? All your help will be greatly appreciated.

End result... It seems HDMI units be them a PC or BLURAY player etc... do a hand shake of sorts with the other end.
So, No options accept stereo in my "AMD HDMI output" config using an HDMI cable from PC to 55" LCD TV and then an optical out from TV to 8 year old Kenwood reciever (Hey tight in it's day! But, the hand shake saw a TV with 2 speakers. Not the Kenwood reciever).
I run accross this hand shake (wrong term prob but we get it) thing searching this subject and bought a 2011 reciever with 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI out to your TV. Good stuff. ATI's Catalist Control Center see's the new reciever not the TV and that rocks. First test failed Crysis played in Stereo. Test 2 was a bluray and played the master audio 5.1 flawlessly. This must have caused the hand shake because I reopened the game and the "AMD HDMI output" with 5.1 channel output on each. Spread this around as it was to difficult to find. Also note that software has to be modern enough to output 5.1. I use Total Medea Theater 5. I expect any of us with knowledge of this hand shake to post thanks.

Ok, so this might get a little confusing to explain, but I've been dealing with this for a while and I can't figure it out.

I want to do a live broadcast stream on something like Ustream or Justin.tv, wherein I record myself (both audio and video) and the audio and video from Skype. Now, I know that I can use WebcamMax to achieve the video requirements, but the audio is throwing me for a loop.

I have a Windows 7, Dell Inspiron Zino HD computer with a "Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221" sound card, and the main problem I'm having is that I have no Stereo Mix or "what you hear" function. And yes, I've gone to the sound settings and clicked "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices". Nothing pops up. I have checked to see if I need to update the driver and it's updated. Thus, I don't have the ability to record what I hear straight from my computer, unless you count the bleepty method of putting a microphone up to my speakers, which is just ridiculous.

So I really want to just be able to use the webcam and the built-in microphone to record myself via video and my voice + the video from Skype + the audio from Skype...in a way that I can stream it live.

Yes, the "Stereo mix" option is being removed from new drivers. Nobody has announced it, as far as I know, but the recording industry never liked it (calling it the "Analog Loophole").

Hello Guys! Please excuse my english

For the last few days i've been trying to solve my problem,

I'm trying to record Stereo Mix sound, but it just doesn't work, my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H.

I have enabled it but when I go to settings of the Stereo Mix the volume is "stuck" I can't raise it, it's just stuck on 0.

It worth mentioning that I also have 2 other sound cards, Asus Xonar DG and Focusrite Scarllet 2i2.
When recording the DG Stereo Mix there is a weird buzz in the sound, also I have tried different drivers for the motherboard but still no success.
My headphone feed is via my Focusrite Scarllet 2i2 which also provides my mic singal to the PC. (I don't use the DG anymore it's just laying in my PC ).

So what do you guys think?

A:VIA Audio Stereo Mix doesn't work

I have a recording studio using Sonar X2 Pro and a Roland Octa-Capture, that I use ONLY for recording.

I have basically the same motherboard, except I have a Gigabyte GAZ77X-UD5H.

If you are using the internal (on the motherboard audio), physically uninstall the DG sound card. Two sound cards can conflict and cause problems. Also, disconnect the Focusrite unit (for testing) and only have the VIA audio and then see if the recording works properly.

Back in the day, most mics sounded awful and your only alternative was usb mics. However, newer motherboards seem to have better onboard mic (less noise) and any old headset will do.

VIA VT1708B 8 -Channel High-Definition Audio CODEC

and its chipset:

In windows xp, audio capture was fine. I primarily use the mic with online gaming and was really happy with how well the onboard sound recorded. Very clean, little noise. In game people said my mic sounded great and tests showed that.

Went to windows 7 recently, everything is great except the mic recording is also capturing what audio output is going on (ie. the game's sound as well)

I played with the nixer settings to death and can't seem to prevent this from happening. All games do it, windows sound recorder, audacity etc.

I noticed there is a stereo mix tab and it has it's own recording volume which I have as muted and its recording level down to zero.

This is with the front mic port but I've tried the back and same thing. This isn't an expensive headset, but again it worked great in xp. If the cables were gone it would be scratchy, not pick up the audio output. But I have a backup of this headset and tried it but the same thing.

If you are using Vista, make sure that when you are in the "Recording" tab, you are showing "disabled" devices. Under the list of microphones, etc, right click a blank space and select "Show Disconnected Devices". Then a source called "Rec. Playback" should come up. This IS stereo mix. Right click, enable it and then you can select it as your default device and use it from other applications, etc.
If you still don't see it, you may be a victim of Dell's strange policy of disabling Stereo Mix on some laptops. I personally have a Studio 1537 with IDT and it has Stereo Mix enabled, but Dell have restricted it in the past on some computers due to copyright protection.

Any other application that tries to produce sound while another application is in exlcusive mode will be denied. 5.1 audio cannot be mixed, it 1 stream only. So to get 5.1 sound you will need something like ac3filter to do the passthrough. PCM audio is 2 channel and can be mixed which is why you only see the stereo option in control panel from your screen shot. Also when you use spdif passthrough (5.1) you will not be able to control the volume through your PC, the receiver will have to do that.

If the content you are playing is only 2 channel you are better off setting your receiver to virtual surround (every receiver calls it something different) and have it simulate 5.1

Hello and thank you,

I have an Asus M4A89GTD Pro mobo, winch has on-board "Realtek ALC 892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC". This is a brand new build.

I'm using a TOSLINK optical cable to connect it to a Samsung HT-TX72 receiver, set up w/ 5.1.

I've downloaded, installed and re-installed the latest Realtek driver -10/18/2011, ver. 6.0.1.6482

When I open the Realtek manager, there are only two tabs: "Digital Output(Optical)" and "Digital Output" - see snip below. Thats all. Every tutorial shows 4 tabs, including "Speakers" - see snip below.

I've spent many hours searching for a solution to a problem no one else seems to have, so perhaps I'm missing something so very basic .

fwiw, I have downloaded the audio driver from ASUS as well, but it links to the same Realtek driver.

Can it be that 5.1 is not available somehow w/ S/PDIF? Seems unlikely.

Please help!


Mobo audio specs from ASUS:

-ALC 892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
- BD Audio Layer Content Protection
- Support 192khz/24bit True BD Lossless Sound
- DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC
- Supports Jack-Detection, Multi-Streaming, and Front Panel Jack-Retasking
- Optical S/PDIF Out ports at back I/O
- ASUS Noise Filter

A:No 5.1 option in Realtek HD Audio Mgr - only stereo

The surround sound receiver will decode Dolby Digital or DTS encoded audio to 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.

There is nothing for Windows to get involved with so there is no control panel for it.

I have connected my Desktop PC to my audio receiver so I can play music on Itunes and have it heard in several rooms that are wired to my stereo system. Right now I use the 1/8" stereo headphone jack on my computer as the audio out and a Y connector that has 2 RCA males that connect to the receiver. It works, but when I plug into the headphone jack the speakers are muted, and I also have to raise the audio levels way up to get good sound. The problem with this is I need to disconnect that cable AND lower the levels back down when I'm done to resume normal computer operation. I would like to change the settings on the computer so that plugging into the headphone jack DOES NOT mute the speakers... AND be able to set separate levels for the headphone out and the speakers. Can this be done? I have also seen USB-to-RCA cables that seem like they would work, but I'm not sure how to "tell" the computer to send audio out of a particular USB port, and how to set an audio level on that port. Since most DJ's use laptops to play music to their amps, I know this has to be feasible, but I haven't yet found out how. Thanks to anyone who can help!

A cable with a USB plug on one end, RCA plugs on the other end, and without any kind of active electronic circuitry will not work. Analog audio outputs are not part of any USB standard.

Some professional DJ software supports using an external USB based audio controller that has a headphone output. This allows the DJ to pre-listen to music selections with their headphones, while driving their amplifiers with the current music selection from the laptop's built-in headphone jack.

I recently bought a Philips SHM7110U/10 headset to hopefully get better audio than my laptop's current microphone while recording with Fraps.

Fraps is currently using my laptop's default microphone, which can be changed by setting another microphone to the default. I read several articles on how to do this, but it turns out my headset does not appear on this list, only my laptop's default microphone.

Here is the recording devices list. The microphone seen in the picture is the built in microphone, which is not what I want to use.



Is there any way to fix this problem? I hope I have explained well enough. Thanks for reading.

PS. The headset is analogue if that helps. The site I bought it from can be found here: Buy Philips SHM7110U/10 3.5mm Stereo Overhead PC Headset and Microphone from our Gaming Headsets range - Tesco.com

A:Headset's microphone is not appearing on the recording devices list.

You should have more than just the microphone. RIGHT click in an empty area in that panel then LEFT click show disabled and disconnected devices. Does the headset mic show up now? Also does the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix) show up? If it does, make that the default recording device then whatever input you have should be heard. The System Mixer (or whatever its called in your PC) is also needed if you want to record streaming audio from the Internet.

Hi All,
This forum is my last hope for solving my problem.
I have HP Pavilion dv7 1270us , which came with Windows Vista x64. I've managed to watch DVD Movies and Blu-ray discs through the HDMI-output, having multichannel audio as well (5.1)
I thought that it was time for a Windows upgrade. 2 weeks ago I've purchased a copy of Windows 7 Professional, formatted my hard drive and installed my new Windows. After that I browsed HP's driver page to download my missing drivers.
Everything looked good, except the fact that I cannot output multichannel audio to my amplifier now.

Firstly, I thought that this could be a codec issue, but it wasn't. This is what I've found in my Sound settings - Windows says that my High Definition audio supports only 2 channels:



As you can see from the screen the HD driver is from Microsoft, which is strange (I think it should be signed by HP?). Somewhere I read that Windows 7 supports only 2 channels for HDMI by default, because the driver is a generic one. When trying to update the driver, the system says that it is the best one.

I've been searching Google for days for a solution. I found that a lot of people are having similar problems (though on different configurations) but I never read a proper solution to this problem.

Hi,
i am totally stumped, and would appreciate some help.
i have an acer aspire 5742/win7 64HPrem./realtek HD audio onboard.
all i want to do is plug a 3.5mm jack into the mic input and record some mixes (of my own) from my other laptop using Audacity.
I can use audacity ok, so i dont think its that.

So, the input works as the mic input, but of course the sound quality is very poor and very distorted.
so i need to turn the mic input into a line-input .
So i un-hid Stereo Mix and enabled it, and disabled the mic.
i can select Stereo Mix in audacity, but there is no input still. Nothing.

i have read now loads of forum posts about this, and it all seems oddly complicated. Surely it cant be that hard to do?? It was easy in XP..

I also updated the drivers from Realtek to the very latest (previous ones from 2010). Now however, i have totally lost Stereo Mix. It isnt there anymore (as some forum posts warned in fact).

So, in summary, please can anyone help me to get decent audio quality into my laptop?
It must be possible....

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello everyone,

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 with onboard Sigmatel sound. I do a little djing, and occasionally hear something in a video or TV show that I'd like to use as a sample to throw into my sets.

In XP I used to do this with Audacity - I'd set it to record 'Wave Out', press record, play the video file and voila - perfectly recorded sound.

As far as I am aware, the Wave Out/Stereo Mix option was not included with the standard Dell Sigmatel drivers, so in order to do this there was a workaround in XP whereby you could install LG drivers which would give you the 'Wave Out' option, so you could record directly from the soundcard.

Since installing Windows 7, I've tried the standard Dell drivers and the LG drivers for Sigmatel, but have been entirely unable to get the 'Wave Out' option. I don't really want to use a recording program such as Total Recorder as I've had issues with it in the past and like the simplicity of the system I used with Audacity.

When I right click the speaker icon in the system tray, then choose 'Recording Devices', the 2 options I see are 'Microphone / Line In' and 'Microphone Array'. I've tried right clicking and selecting 'Show disabled devices' but nothing more shows up.

So... does anytone know if there are there any Sigmatel drivers out there that can enable this function or any other workaround for W7 to achieve it?

Thanks for reading, apologies for the long post.

Cheers,

Tom.

Hi,
1st a little set-up explanation:-

My mobo is an ASUS P5n-E SLI with Realtek ALC883 on board. It has a co-axial S/PDIF output for my digital connection to my DD/DTS 5.1 surround system.

I used to be running XP SP3 and the PC is in an adjacent room to my Lounge so I have a PC monitor but also connections into my LCD HDTV and surround system. (DVI video and S/PDIF digital audio).
For watching DVD and Bluray I would switch displays and use media portal and TMT3. I would get DD and DTS sound through my amp, and, if i switched back to my PC monitor for general PC use (not watching movies) the standard two channel stereo speakers on it would work with windows & internet explorer etc.

Now i have switched to Windows 7 (using 7MC and TMT3 for movies) and windows updates included a new driver for the realtek audio, i notice the interface for the realtek audio manager has changed visually for the better but for my particular set-up, it now appears I have to choose a "default playback device" between either standard analogue output to my pc monitor, or choose my digital S/PDIF output. That means I have to jump through more hoops when switching displays to watch a movie with digital sound or standard pc monitor use in stereo. (note I have to use either monitor stereo speakers or my digital 5.1 surround amp because they are in adjacent rooms and the amp might be being used by somone watching TV whilst i am on the PC).

Hello all:

I have a rather annoying problem that I have been trying to deal with for a while, but with no success. My problem is that I cannot access the stereo mix on the audio driver that I currently have. I know how to enable it by going in and Show Disabled Devices, so that's not my problem.

The audio driver that was the factory default on the computer had amazing sound from the adjustments I made through the Enhancements menu in the Sound menu in Control Panel, but I could not access Stereo Mix because it wasn't there at all. However, when I updated the sound card driver (which is currently upgraded to Realtek 2.66) the Stereo Mix appeared, but the sound quality is nowhere near the quality that I had before. I have messed around with the graphic equalizer to some extent with no luck. Is there anything that I can do so that I don't have to lose the sound quality, but to also record the audio from Stereo Mix?

Sorry for the length, and thanks in advance!

The only problem is that it plays for about five seconds before pausing- as if it's loading the next section. I have called Sony's customer support, and their only advice was to "finalize" the disc.

Alright here's my situation:

I have a Core2Duo PC running Vista Home Premium 32 bit, hooked up to my TV using a HDMI cable. This has been working fine for 2 years now. Yesterday I decided to add some more RAM to this PC (4 GB instead of the standard 2 GB to be exact). I know 32 bit will only read 3 GB but I was thinking of upgrading to Windows 7 64 bit later.

Anyway I booted up the computer, worked fine of course, even watched a movie or two without problems. Then this morning I booted up the PC and I suddenly noticed the volume icon saying that there were no audio devices detected! I checked under Hardware and there are no audio devices whatsoever! So my HDMI cable is still giving me picture but no sound! Seeing as I'm using onboard audio I immediately booted into the BIOS and although I couldn't find a specific option that said onboard audio I did see something audio related being "HDA" (I assume HD audio) on automatic, the other option was ACRealtek97 or something. However it was enabled so no luck there.

Does anyone know how all of a sudden my HDMI cable isn't providing audio anymore? I even checked my Nvidia card which also stated that HDMI audio was enabled.

I hope anyone can help me, thanks in advance.

Good morning all.

Could anyone please explain to me how to enable my rear 'microphone' and 'line in' devices in win7 64? Currently they are listed as unavailable(see attached image). The rear 'microphone' input socket has a guitar physically plugged into it, and the 'line in' has a stereo synth plugged into it. I need to enable or switch these on somehow.

On a related note, could anyone explain what the 'Stereo Mix' input device is used for?

And finally, can anyone explain why when using a DAW such as Cubase, i can only successfully hear output when i disable the Playback 'Speakers' device (I have to re-enable it if i wish to subsequently play movies or music from the Windows desktop - see attached image.

Thanks for looking.

A:Rear'Microphone' and 'Line in' Sound recording devices are unavailable

I have a recording system using Sonar X1 and Pro Tools MP9. I use a Roland Octa-Capture as my recording interface unit and when its attached to the PC it is automatically set as the default playback device and recording device. When I disconnect it (power off) my PC's sound card automatically resets as the default playback device and my System Mixer (same as Stereo Mix) becomes the default playback device.

The first thing I see is the Vsynth XT is set as default playback device and not your "Speakers" (sound card) which is disabled, which could be the cause of the problems.

The System Mixer/Stereo Mix (Soundblaster calls this "what you hear") is normally set as the default recording device and along with Soundblaster, what you are hearing on the speakers is available for recording. With the System Mixer whatever device is inputting, such as speakers or line in is available for recording using the System Mixer. You set your recording program to use the PC's System Mixer (Stereo Mix) as the recording source (for analog inputs).

The devices that are currently unavailable, along with the speakers suggests the PC's sound is disabled or not functioning. Correcting that should bring back the recording devices, although you may have to enable them after you get the PC sound device (VIA HD Audio) working correctly.

First step, remove/disconnect the Synth you have connected and see if that enables the sound device and recording devices. If not, check th... Read more

Okay, so here goes. When I first build the system and installed windows, i wasn't thinking much of the sound as i was installing updates and video card drivers and what-not. I did, at some point, connect the bose to the computer using the 3.5mm jack on the front panel of the computer. It worked fine, I heard the little sounds the computer makes when logging on. Since then I have had troubles with my network card and ran windows update and various other things.

Now no sound works at all. When I realized this I tried:
-Changing the actual front panel cable that is connected to the mobo from hd audio to ac 97 (and changing the setting in the bios)
-Searched for many hours online trying many different solutions such as:
-updating drivers
-rolling back drivers

Other things i've tried:
-system restore
-update bios
-install audio drivers from mobo disc

I have moved past being extremely frustrated and I now just dont know what else to do.

I would greatly appreciate any feedback what so ever :)

I have a bluetooth headset connected to a bluetooth usb adapter but I am unable to get the mic to work while using stereo audio, only when it's in mono audio. I read somewhere it's about the number of profiles supported, would I need multiple bluetooth adapters, a better one or is there a way to make it work that I'm just missing?

After upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10, on a TOSHIBA Satellite C655-S5212 laptop, I lost everything in the 'Recording Devices' window (Control Panel \ Sound, then open the 'Recording' tab) except the internal microphone, even with the "Show Disabled Devices" & "Show Disconnected Devices" BOTH checked.
 
With Win 7, I had solved this problem with the instructions by poster 'wildzero' found at this previous 'bleepingcomputer.com' thread:
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/502384/conexant-smartaudio-hd-sound-card-enable-stereo-mix/
 
But after the Win 10 upgrade, I had trouble locating the .INF file that had to be edited to gain the 'Stereo Mix' back to being visible, because the Conexant HD Audio driver was different, hence the folder and file name had changed, from the Win 7 OS.
 
Also worth noting here, is that the Conexant HD Audio driver I was dealing with is 64 bit  v8.54.49.50
 
On the TOSHIBA laptop (Satellite C655-S5212), it ended up being a file named CALCC2WA.inf, located inside the C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\CALCC2WA.inf_amd64_07118bd8a2180658 folder.
Find and open (with Notepad) the "CALCC2WA.inf" file inside that folder.
 
BUT ... You must FIRST change the permissions of this file to save the editing, otherwise you'll get a pop-up window telling you that you don't have permission to alter this file. Do this by 'right-clicking' on the file, and click 'Properties,' then click the 'Security' tab at ... Read more

Hello, I bought a "Plantronics Audio 60 Stereo PC Headset" from amazon awhile ago, and I'm not *entirely* sure if it actually worked from the beginning...but it sure as hell isn't workin now.

*Running halflife*

Well anyway, it works GREAT when I do sound recording (Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder) but when I try to do it in a game, no one can hear me (when I did the voice tweak, it plays kinda staticy the thing that I said, then repeats it over and over again, getting louder each time. The other config option doesn't help either) Has anyone else experienced problems with this product, or any product and experienced the same problem..? Is it fixable, or will I have to get support from plantronics? Thanks in advance.
