Windows 7: No "What U Hear/Stereo Mix" on new computer?

No "What U Hear/Stereo Mix" on new computer?

Just got a new computer this week, getting tons of headaches trying to find an answer for my issue.

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and I have Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio. "Show Disabled Devices" did nothing for me.

I'm not looking for a program to record something from the internet either. I broadcast live streams on justin.tv of me playing World of Warcraft and various other games. And I used to use "What U Hear" so people could hear the game.

Is there any hope? Some sort of magical fix it all driver? What are my options?

Thank you.

Hi Scantraxx,

Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio's "What You Hear" option is no longer included in Vista or Windows 7

If it had an XP driver that had that function you may be able to use in by installing it in compatibility mode. To do that right click the installer>properties>compatibility>XP

I see, well I'm terrible with drivers, but I'll attempt to find something. Any other workaround you could suggest if that doesn't work? Are there any specific soundcards out there I could switch it out with?
This computer is a paperweight if I can't do all this anymore. So I'm open to all ideas.

I'm assuming I could dual boot XP and hop on there when I need to, but that's the last thing I want to try.

Gah I love everything about 7, but this is a huge step backwards for me.

I have a PCIe SoundBlaster Xfi Titanium Fatality Champion and it DOES have the What You Hear. There are other PCIe Xfi Titanium series models that also have this as the Creative driver is the same for all the Xfi Titanium series.

The HT Omega "Striker 7.1" PCI sound card supports Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit and has the System Mixer.
