The important point is what are you using to record the audio
Depending on that answer and
HAS IT EVER WORKED depends on where we go from there
What I mean by that is - if you have not got a line in - then that control is not in any way connected with the problem
and obviously if you are not using the mic - neither is that
It all depends on the program you are using and the facilities of the sound card/integrated audio on the computer
Well that is the thing. I am using onboard motherboard audio system
its realtek HD Audio Driver version 5.10.00.51.36
I even tried upgrading to the latest drivers which is on the gigabyte motherboard area of my board: all it did was disable my input devices and none of the sliders work.
Basically what is happening is no matter what kind of recording program I use, I have used three kinds, Windows soundrec, Nero Media Player.
And they are all affected by the realtek master volume.
You do not need to hear what you are recording - therefore you do not need the speakers on or the volume that is there does not effect the recording vol
This is true and the thing is. the way I am trying to record is I am trying to record music coming out of a program called Gashisoft and an NES emulator program that I can play music to record NES into a wave format using a recording software program.
I have tried the one you used but it is still affected.
I don't understand why this happens it doesn't do it on my other computer. I have a screen shot here that shows you what happens.
Anyhow here is the first picture
You see I'm able to record.
--------------------- But if I lower my speaker volume on the keyboard this is what happens --->
This makes no sense what so ever You are correct, lowering my output master volume for my speakers shouldn't affect what is being waved inside the system it self.
I don't understand it is this way or not but I think it may be due to driver instruction.
I don't ever recall having this problem on this system before but then again I can't confirm that because I have never noticed it before till the day I muted my volume on the keyboard to take a cell phone call during a recording session.
So regardless of what wave recording program i use including the one you suggested: they are all affected anyhow and because of this volume issue I cannot properly control the volume inputs because the volume outputs Overrides The stereo Mix in the Volume input devices.
This makes no sense to me what so ever, But if I select the Microphone in the input devices box?
For some reason that is not affected.
It makes no sense to me what so ever, on my other computer when I was doing sound media recordings I never had this problem, I could mute my output speakers and I would still be able to record nominal sound output from the actual SOUND chip it self on the motherboard.
I'm tempted the contact the manufacture unless you have any ideas of what could be causing the conflict?
perhaps a software program has installed a audio driver that is screwing with everything else on that input function?
This is the following programs that I have installed.
Video LAN player, Nero Media player 1.4, then there's the basic Windows Media player software provided by windows XP SP2 and then I upgraded my OS to SP3 of course.
