Windows 7: Information: Using Audition 2 with Windows 7

08 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Information: Using Audition 2 with Windows 7

This works for Audition 2. If you don't have an XML editor, download XML Notepad 2007 (a free Microsoft product).

To be able to adjust the recording level there are a number of steps to follow.
1. You MUST get a Windows 7 driver for you sound card.
2. Right-click on the speaker icon in the system tray.
3. Select recording devices.
4. You will be on the Recording tab.
5. Right-click in the white are and make sure Show disabled devices is selected.
6. You will now see all the inputs your card handles. Note that Wave Ouput might now be called Stereo Mix or Mono Mix.
7. With Windows 7 you can only set the recording level of one input at a time.
8. If the input you want to use is not marked as Default Device, right-click on it and select set as default device.
9. Right-click on it again and select Properties. Go to the Listen tab and select Listen to this device as on or off, depending on your needs.

10. Before you run Audition you must edit the settings file.
11. Use Control Panel, Folder Options, View to make hidden files visible.

12. Go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Audition\2.0. (You might have to try Local or LocalLow instead of Roaming.)
13. Make a backup uf auditionsettings.xml.

14. Right-click on audition-settings.xml to edit it with your XML editor.
15. Use Find to go to Mixer2.
16. The Key is Mixer2, the Type is string. Change the #text to "C:\Windows\System32\sndvol.exe /rec", without the quotes. (It probably says sndvol32.dll. Microsoft, in their wisdom, decided to change the name and the /r to /rec.)

17. Save the file.
18. Run Audition.
19. Go to Edit->Audio Hardware Setup... ->Edit View and click on Control Panel... and make sure only the correct devices are selected.
20. Go to Options->Windows Recording Mixer... and you will see, amongst a few output level faders, your selected input fader.

If you want to be able to mix inputs, go through the above procedure, selecting the input that will need the most adjusting. Also, use steps 17 and 18 to select all the inputs you will be using

Then go through steps 2 to 6, and 9. For each input you will be using, right-click on them, select Properties, go to the Levels tab and set the level.

Life would have been so much easier if Microsoft had not decided that you should only record one input at a time.

It's all about the hardware. I have no issues with recording precisely how I want without any editing or hoops to jump through. I use Cubase and Sonar for the most part. A little Sound Forge 10 for stuff.
