Recording what is heard...

Basically for the purposes of some songs im writing, i need the option of recording "what is heard" through the speaker. I have no option for this on the windows mixer recording options.

The mixer software for my sound card (Creative PCI 128) comes with this option, but installing the software results in loss of any sound whatsoever.

Short of shelling out for a new sound card, is there any way i can remedy this?

how did you install the current soundcard drivers? did you just install the card and let windows pick the driver? or what? you could uninstall the card then reinstall it with the cd from creative...which may allow it to work...as if the drivers came with the card...they should work

alternately i would assume you could put a mic infront of a speaker

You need to go to control panel/sounds and audio devices properties/advanced/options/properties/recording/and check "what U Hear"

btw Placing the mic in front of speakers will result in feedback(squeeling)...not Good :whistling:
