Does Win11 Pro still record with Stereo Mix?

It’s 4 or 5 years (I had a stroke) and a wonder if Windows still records with Stereo Mix (?) or has it been stopped.

Windows 11 Pro
Audacity 3.2.3

I believe that’s a driver feature, not something built-into Windows. It does seem to have mostly disappeared.

But [u]WASAPI loopback[/u] is built-into Windows and it works similarly.

There is a quirk with WASAPI loopback,… It won’t record if there is no digital audio stream (if the audio stream is paused or stopped). It can record a silent stream but it won’t record “nothing”.

Sometimes stereo-mix can be available but hidden …

The WASAPI method is slightly better audio quality than via stereo-mix.

Thank you for both answers. I’ll have a look at WASAPI

I had this issue with win 11 too. (No Stereo Source) I installed the R282 release from Realtek for Win 10 and it seems to be working fine. Once installed you have to go to Control Panel>Sounds Recording tab and set stereo to default.
