Windows 7: Built New System - Cannot Record

I don't see a mute control in Sound Recorder.

If you mean the mute in something like Youtube if you are trying to record sounds on Youtube, then yes, the program WON"T record the audio---just as if you had hit pause. Why wouldn't you expect that behavior?

I meant the mute button on my keyboard. In other words, muting the system volume causes Sound Recorder and Audition to record no sound. Normally the audio level to a recording program would be separate from the volume you hear out of your speakers, right?

Wrong, at least in my personal experience. It may be possible to make them separate, but on my systems in the past, they are connected. For instance:

If I am recording the sound portion of a youtube file as I watch the youtube file, if i move the volume control up and down in youtube (or in my recording application), the sound level I perceive over my headphones will also be affected and the volume level of the file on playback will be affected--you can hear the points at which you moved the volume control up and down.

I don't know if you are locked into Audition, but if you are not, you might consider using the free Audacity recording application. Excellent and widely used.

I believe that best you can do using the built in windows functionality that most sound cards adhere to is "record what you hear" so yes, if you mute the output, you will mute your recording.

In order to get full funtionality to record any input directly, you may have to get a "real" sound card. They type used for "real" audio production. This doesn't mean the card needs to be horribly expensive though. But something from a company like M-Audio that makes sound cards specifically for recording may be what you need if the above steps don't help any further.
