So I built a new system and am installing all my favorite software which means Audacity has to go on there. But eh problem of trying to figure out how to get it to work. I’ve tried all variations with sound inputs etc. and cant get any sound to come through the stereo mix.
In the recording menu once all hidden devices are displayed I get these strange HDMI output icons that can’t be activated.
If you want to be able to record the Stereo Mix off your Realtek sound card, you probably need to either disable or mute ALL the other input options in Windows Sound. You then need to set your Device Toolbar to look something like this.
That is what I have with ONLY the Stereo Mix present as a device in the Sound > Recording tab of Windows.
