No Stereo Mix in Windows 7

There is no Stereo Mix option available to me right now for any program and in the recording tab of mmsys.cpl even when disconnected/disabled devices are shown the stereo mix option still does not appear. And yes I have the latest drivers from Realtek (r2.50) for windows 7 64bit. Using onboard sound from Asus M4A79XTD EVO motherboard. never had a problem in xp.

Stereo mix seems to have been disabled in newer drivers. Asus cards still have it.

The lack of stereo mix for Realtek cards is a well documented issue. There are dozens of threads on here, and thousands around the rest of the web. I have not seen where anyone has found a solution besides replacing the card. Sorry we couldn't be of more help.

So, not many have this under "Recording Devices"?
I'm using 2.49 drivers but it's been there through several driver revisions.

@Bangalore - What is your sound card? All recent sound cards has Stereo Mix/What You Hear. It's simply desactivated.

Right click on the speaker icon in the notification Aera then select Recording Devices. Then, Right-click in the windows and check "Show desactivated devices". Stereo Mix/What You Hear should appear. Then, right click on it and click "Activate". Voilą, it should be working.

I have Win7 and I can“t run two sound applications at the same time. I have a MSI K9N SLI Platinum motherboard with the respective sound device onboard. I'm usig ASIO4all and If I'm using Sibelius 5 I cant hear a single sound from Adobe audition or Winamp, etc. This problem, for me, is like using DOS where we were used to run one application at a time. This is not a minor thing, it's a HUGE flaw.

Hello 1980subrosa and welcome.

It's not a flaw, it's a limitation of the audio-system make-over from Vista. It was improved in Windows 7 but you still can't talk and record Stereo Mix at the same time. Please, understand that. Thank you.

If you really need to do both, there's FRAPS, a screen-recording software that can do both. Yes, it's really annoying but there are no software I know of that can do that.

Hope it helps. Bye

Using the onboard Realtek audio I can run multiple applications at once all of them playing sound perfectly....but as soon as ASIO4All is invoked the audio system is locked. So, it's not that Windows audio is not multi-client, it's just that an ASIO device will no longer share the audio system.

This also happens using my RME sound card, if Cubase is using the RME ASIO driver, Soundforge can no longer us the RME windows drivers.
