Hey there Geeks to Go!

I have a problem here.. I'm a singer and when i had windows XP i could plug my headphones and plug my microphone and record a track and my voice at the same time... meaning that while i recorded the song, I could hear the track and my voice through the headphones. With this Vista OS it wont let me do it.. when i click in the recording devices it will only let me set one as a default, and when I set stereo mixer as a defalut I can only record the sounds on I play on the laptop.. and when I click microphone i can only record what the microphone emmits.. plus I cant hear myself anymore while i record my voice... How can I configure my laptop in order for me to listen to my voice and the track at the same time? Could someone please help me?

One thing.. I've tried to configure the speakers and the levels and the microphone doesnt appear there.. any solutions?

What program are you using to do this?

If you're a singer, you should look at an actual recording program. Audacity is freeware and works out well for me, until I got DP3. Haven't been back since. :)

Vista has no problems with Audacity, all you have to do is go into the settings and select "Playthrough tracks while recording" or something like that.
