Hi Telman and welcome to sevenforums, i dont know about the sound cards but i use a software to record "what you hear"
also you can configure your settings as follows

1. Right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right.
2. Choose Recording Devices
3. In the empty white space, right-click and choose Show Disabled Devices. You should see Stereo Mix appear in the list.
4. Right click on Stereo Mix and choose Enable.
5. Right click on Stereo Mix again, and choose Set as Default Device.
