Hello,Not long ago, someone from the list gave me instructions as to how to get audacity to record both my computer sounds and my voice at the same time. The first half of the directions said to do the following: Press Shift+H to open the Select audio host dialog Down arrow to choose Windows WASAPI Shift+I to open the Select device dialog, then choose the option with "loopback" in its name. Now you can record sound from your computer, but not the sound from microphone. I've figured out that part, apparently I have to have Audacity running in order to do the above. However, the second part of those directions is a bit confusing. The second half of the directions say: From System tray, choose speaker and press Enter Choose recording devices within the menu. Choose the microphone you want to record from within the list, and press the properties button. Ctrl+tab to the listen page, and check the Listen to this device checkbox and press OK. Now you'll hear your voice from the speaker/ headphone, and you'll be able to record it, including computer sound The trouble is, when I press the speaker button on my sys tray, I don't get a list of microphones installed on my computer, and there's nothing that mentions recording or properties. Instead, I see the following: track bar 76 of 100, (this apparently is a slider of some sort and its a dialog. Then there's a button that says mute speakers / headphones, followed by another button called mixer, then another button that says IDT High definition audio codec. If I press tab at this point, I'm wrapped back around to the first icon, which is the track bar, that's set to 76. But there's no recording devices menu. At least not on my computer anyway. I'm sure that messing around with all these settings is quite easy, assuming that one knows what they're doing. But I'm not one to mess around with my computer's settings. I'm running a desktop pc with windows 8.1. Mike Rochester, NY.
