    Stereo Mix won't show up on Ultimate for me. [​IMG]
    I've tried enabling "Show Disabled..." but still, nothing. Any ideas?

    Check Sound Properties and look for the "Configure" button.

    Should be able to right-click the volume systray item, go to Sound Properties.

    There's no Sound Properties, all I see is Volume Mixer, Playback Devices, Recording Devices, Sounds, and Volume control options. Unless you mean Sounds, there's no Sound Properties.

    I haven't done this since Vista and I see what you mean. It's just not there, even with Display Disabled Devices set.

    You can make your mic input playback through your speakers, but you can't change playback to play-to-input..


    However, are you using the default Win7 drivers or the manufacturer-distributed ones? Perhaps that makes a difference, because I know I'm using defaults.

    By 'show disabled' I assume you did the following?

    1. Win button + R. Type "MMSYS.CPL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
    2. On Recording tab, right-click on the blank area
    3. Check “Show Disabled Devices” and “Show Disconnected Devices” and the Stereo Mix should show up. After that you can right click it to enable.

    That works for me anyway, and I'm on Windows 7. I'm also not running default sound drivers that shipped with Windows.

    I got it back after instaling realtek drivers instead of using default win 7 drivers.

    It's because of the music industry. Stereo mix effectively disables any DRM on digital music...
