it actually works with isound for windows 7 without stereo mix and that stuff (the trial version only let you 100 seconds..) , im trying to use audacity, but somehow it doesnt work.... and the oddest thing is that camtasia studio does record the sound if it is recording video.. BUT it lags, and when I try it to record sound only in camtasia it doesnt work..

well i would like a program that can record unlimited, even on trial version, or a free software program

or just fix that stereo mix

Have you tried disabling the microphone and try to record sounds on your PC with the Stereo Mix enabled?
