"The "What U Hear" feature for Sound Blaster Audigy SE/LS/Live!24 bit cards had changed since the latest driver update. The previous version of Windows Vista driver (SB24_VTDRV_LB_1_04_0065A.exe) for Sound Blaster Audigy SE/LS/Live!24 bit has an option for recording with "What U Hear". The latest driver no longer has the option for "What U Hear" recording with Sound Blaster Audigy SE/LS/Live!24bit.

For Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook, please update to the latest driver to get the What U Hear option. Click on the Download link at the top right corner of this page under the Quick Links to download the latest driver.

* Notes: For Sound Blaster Audigy SE/LS/Live!24 bit, the only way to get the "What U Hear" option is to reinstall the previous drivers, or roll back drivers.
* Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio series owners may experince issues with latency when trying to record via the microphone. This behaviour is due to the microphone software monitoring feature routing the audio signal to the host and back to the card resulting in some latency.
* Creative do not provide technical support for Beta Drivers. We recommend that only experienced users install this driver."
Thankyou! Didn't think I'd ever get to use What U Hear ever again with my old Soundblaster Live! 24-Bit on Windows 7 64-Bit. This brings it back, I'm amazed!

I use Audacity all the time. Recording "what you hear" is a function of the sound card. If your sound card can do it, then that option, or something similar, will appear in Audacity--assuming you've set up Audacity correctly.

How to record "what you hear" in Windows 7

You need to change what your audio program (I'm using Cool Edit Pro) is getting it's sound signal from.
Right click on the speaker icon
Select recording devices
Set your sound card as the default device
Now your audio recording program should record whatever your sound card is outputting.

I've enabled Stereo Mix and set it as my default but when I attempt to record my screen and what I hear (I'm using SnagIt and Screenpresso) neither are recording the audio that I hear in my headset (Logitech G930) but they will record the sound from my MIC in the G930. Motherboard Crosshair_IV_Extreme motherboard includes the RealTec HD Audio Manager, Win7 x64. With the Sound window (the image in the preceding post) open I never see any green for the Stereo Mix but I do see green for my G930. Any suggestions?

I don't even have Stereo Mix in my settings. But i capture with Fraps and in there i've enabled Record Win7 Sound option and it works. It's possible that both of your apps doesn't use default Windows sound settings.

I know this is a little old, but the complete fix wasn't described, so here it is. Right click on the speaker icon in task bar, and select "Recording devices". If you don't have "Stereo Mix" on the recording tab of your sound settings, right click in the window below the devices you do have, and select "Show Disabled Devices". That should make the stereo mix visible, so you can right click on it and select "Enable". After you enable it, set it as default and start recording with any program you want, including the Windows sound recorder.

Record What you hear with Realtek audio & audacity

Setting your default to Stereo Mix may not work if you've accepted a Windows update to the Realtek driver. Mine originally worked, but stopped at some point. I think it was after the windows update. In any case, I downloaded the most current 64 bit driver from Realtek.

The install first uninstalls the old driver then reinstalls the new version. Initially this did not work, because on reboot windows found it's own driver and installed it automatically. So, I manually uninstalled using the "delete software" option and rebooted. When I reran Realtek's install wizard and then set the Stereo Mixer as the default recording device everything worked. You also may need to adjust the preferences in Audacity, but mine retained the previous settings. Hope this helps.

I have a Soundblaster Live! 24 bit card on Windows 7 and though I've managed to get What U Hear back using the old driver further up the thread, it doesn't allow me to enable both the Line In and What U Hear at the same time, which is something I used to be able to do on Windows XP. Annoying. It's either one or the other.

Even though the latest driver for my Audigy 2 ZS Platinum shows What U Hear in the recording devices, none of my recording apps see a signal when using What U Hear as the source, i.e., the level meters show no input signal. The solution is to set Creative ASIO as the device and Mix L / Mix R as the channels.
