XP audio settings equivalent on Win7

hey,
i use one of them programs to talk to ppl, like Ventrilo or Skype..
when i used WinXP i just opened up Sound Properties n switch from Playback to Recording (then check Stereo Mix instead of Mic), then i could let other ppl listen to whatever i was playing on my computer, like a song or such..
now that im using Windows 7 i just cant find a way of doing that anymore..
any thoughts?

The Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel is where you set defaults and control the audio hardware in Vista/Windows 7.

The Recording section in the Sound Panel is where you set the "system mixer" (stereo mix/what you hear) as the default playback device.

Is this what you want?
