True I suppose just out of curiosity what are the specs of your machine as all I can see id the OS in specs? You built it or buy it laptop or desktop etc?

Yep ok E but what is the motherboard brand as the Realtek is going to be in that.

If you want an easy way to find out run Speccy it will tell you everything about the specs on your machine down to quite fine detail - always god to have when you are hab=ving trouble. and if for instance you need to show RAM timings you can tak e a snip of that and post. But we are more interested in the audio.

Well couldn't find much bout that little ref except it isa H77 chipset which is good but info on the features not enough to go o.


So I Googled that Maxxaudio and came up with this http://www.maxx.com/content.aspx?id=739 now I am thinking this maybe the application that has been loaded by Dell and it is the audio managing tool that just uses the Realtek function / onboard firmware. Realtek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also digging down there is this Maxx | Applications so can you try and open it (the Maxx on your machine) and see what happens?.

It might an idea to take a look at Programs and Features to see if it s there too.

hmm. yeah that sounds about right.

I guess Maxxaudio is basically my version of the Realtek HD Audio Manager.
It has all the ordinary features I'd want in it, but I don't see anywhere to do what I wanted to with the Realtek audio manager

Huh, made by Waves? Waves are known for amazing products. You'd think this would be a bit more flexible...
Guess I'm out of luck lol.

Thanks much

There isn't any other way to make two audio jacks be read as two devices rather than one is there?
In Skype you can set your audio device so what I want to do is have it so that using my headphones, I hear what's in Skype while a game's volume is coming through the speakers.
Everything I've found online about it says to use the Realtek HD Audio Manager to do that D:<

I just want to be able to record game footage without having Skype's audio in it, but Fraps doesn't let you record a specific program's audio so you have to have a separate device for skype.

No probs E look mate I like audio stuff myself and I don't know hat you do with yours but I do like mixing and playing around with effects etc For the most part I use a Xonar DG card in the Sandy Bridge and it does just about anything I want. The Ivy Bridge is a different story but quickly I cannot get it set up so I use a free app form jriver that lets you rip burn audio video etc etc

Have a look mate - download and install nothing to lose and you might like it - stacks of links to music sites and well heaps of stuff really.

You can always uninstall it if you don't like it.
Let me know how you go.

Actually E sorry don't know your name not wanting to be rude and all that but that looks fairly rudimentary if you don't mind me saying so.

If it doesn't void your warranty I think the best way is to install an Asus Xonar DG sound card - not expensive at all and the GUI is real easy to use and just use Windows Media Player. Just a couple of pics to show you what the GUI looks like.

Good luck!!
