Why do i need the “Stereo Mix” feature?

[Total: 1    Average: 5/5]

The ‘Stereo Mix” input of sound card allows you to record all what you hear. Here is a list of possible applications:

  • Record your voice with background music. Sound card will mix voice and music together.
  • Record both sides of Skype conversations.
  • Record DRM-protected music to standard MP3 files. This is a main reason why “Stereo Mix” disabled in latest audio drivers.
  • Record MIDI files to WAV or MP3. In fact, this trick was popular few years ago. Now you can convert MIDI to MP3 directly using MIDI Rendering software.
  • Record sound tracks from popular games

Any more suggestions?
