For recording and Archiving and distribution (syndication) Netia is the
industry standard. (if you have the budget).

Audacity, a popular free software, works on Vista and you can get
around Vista's recording "what you hear" problem. But if you work in the
industry you would appreciate this is the inferior way to record for
archiving or re-broadcast. You are allowing to much line noise.

Invest in a Sound card...

I bought my laptop, featuring windows vista, about a year ago. During
time, I have noticed two things I could do on my older computer that
had XP
but can't do on Vista. (a) I cannot listen to anything I record into my
computer while recording it. I have to record, then listen back. (b) I
record anything that is playing on my computer.

I read somewhere about copyright issues or something, but I work in the
radio business, so I use my laptop for audio recording all the time.
When you
are recording an hour or longer broadcast for re-airing or for archive
purposes, it really sucks if the audio doesn't record right, something
fix if you were able to here it during recording. Does anybody know
anyway to
fix this problem?> > > > > >
Hi Clevo,
I'm not the guy who initiated the first query. I have only just
bought my laptop and discovered the problem within minutes. I've been
searching for a fix for over a week.
You're the first person I've come across who has indicated that there
might be a way of overcoming Vista's "What You Here" issue. How can it
be done.
I'm using Adobe Audition, a program that is used extensively in
Community Radio where bugets are limited. In order to "bounce" one
track to another in a multitracking format, it is essential to be able
to record the sound you are hearing on playback. This doesn't seem
possible with Vista.
I'll be happy if you can tell me how to get the old "Stereo Mix"
control or something similar into Vista.

Sorry Merv if I came across huffy.... You can indeed get around the
record "what you hear" with Audacity
