Windows 7: No Stereo "mix" on my system.

Try a search on your favorite online store for "USB Sound Card" and you should find a selection, the more difficult part is likely to be the research to see which have the required functionality - you will see a lot of the very cheap ones are advertised as no drivers needed, so I would not expect them to have anything that is not in the basic Microsoft universal driver

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of the things, none of which, as far as I can tell, does what I want. They seem either too simple (just a 'phones out and a line in socket), or designed as a complicated mixing desk.

Perhaps someone who reads this thread will know of something suitable. Maybe I should start a new thread just to enquire about that.

This ASUS Xonar U3 "appears" to get you stereo mix, but they call it "Wave". It is Win 7 compatible.

Thank you for trying to help fireberd but I see nothing there which suggests "Stereo Mix", nor do I see "Wave"

What I do see is a lot of techno-babble and some contradictions.

I looked at the manual for the item. That is where I saw the reference to "wave". Its basically the ASUS Xonar PCIe sound card in a USB connected device. The Xonar sound card is a popular add on for desktops.

Ah well, it looks as though I shall have to give up and live with the limitation.

I've seen reports of 3rd party programs that will do what Stereo Mix does. That may be the option you want.

Yes, that's exactly what I want - Stereo Mix.

I wonder if there's a version of 7 which hasn't got Stereo Mix crippled.

I have an ASUS Xonar PCIe sound card and can confirm it has a wave option so if the USB has the same functionality as the PCI it should do the job

To be honest I don't know what a "wave" option is. Never heard of it actually.

I don't have the luxury of a different sound card option, everything is on the motherboard.
