Missing channel

Top  Previous  Next

CaptureWizPro will record the audio going to the computer's speakers if the computer's audio driver provides this capability.

 

We just need to select which channel to record. Audio drivers give this channel various names, including:

 

StereoMix
What-U-Hear
Rec-Playback
Sum Balance
Wave Out Mix
Record Master
Wave/MIDI/CC
Mixed Output

 

The problem is, this channel is often hidden. We don't know why. Here's how to force Windows to show the channel, if available, so we can select it.

 

Windows 10, 8 & 7

1 Press then Windows key, then type Control Panel.

2 On the Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound.

3 In the Sound section, click Manage audio devices.

4 On the Sound window, click the Recording tab.

5 In the blank area under the list of devices, right-click.

6 On the context menu, check mark both Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices.
