So I'm trying to record my system audio, but I'm not quite sure how since I can't figure out how to get my stereo mix. I've googled around about this and nothing has really helped at all. I go to my Control Panel>Sound>Recording tab and right click and check show hidden and disabled devices and whatnot and I still only get my microphone, no Stereo Mix to be found. Is there something else I'm supposed to be doing?

:welcome: to the Community LighstandMagic :)

 

By providing the sound card or computer model if the audio chip is built-in, the members and BleepingComputer may help you. If it works beforehand, try reinstalling or updating the sound drivers by the manufacturing support site. Check also device manager just in case for any flags that may need to be addressed first that may be related to your problem.

I have RealTek HD audio. I don't know the specific model of sound card, but it's built-in. I run a Sony Vaio F Series SVF15215CXW laptop running Windows 8.

It seems upon further searching is that, some laptops and on Sony OEM computers did not include stereo mix in their hardware chip feature.

LightsAndMagic,

 

Jhayz is correct some laptops don't come with a stereo mix but you could use a paid software like virtual audio cable to simulate a stereo mix.  This can be a little complicated to learn to use.  Here is an example video tutorial for VAC (virtual audio cable)...   "Record sound and mic from a USB" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPUt0lJ6GoQ

 

A second option is free/donation software VB-Audio at http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/VB-AUDIO also has a nice software called VOICE METER and VB-AUDIO has many youtube tutorials if you scroll down on their webpage you will see their youtube videos.

 

 

                                                                                                                  Happy New Year,

 

 

                                                                                                                  Vlad
