I also have gold wave and skype using the stereo system threw the sb audagy. everything else goes threw the sound card on the mother board. hth jim grimsby msn: jim.grimsby@xxxxxxx email: jimgrims@xxxxxxxxxxx skype: jim.grimsby -----Original Message----- From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Cameron Computer Services Sent: Friday, December 30, 2005 11:55 AM To: Windows-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx; vendtalk-request@xxxxxxxxxx; JFW Free Lists; promotion-technology-request@xxxxxxxxxx; Programming-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: 2 Sound Cards? I am looking into doing some DJ work. I currently have a notebook with a sound card and Jaws 6.2. I have a old Dectalk Express synthesizer but am not using it because my notebook has no serial port. I am hooking up my notebook to my home stereo so I can use my notebook to play my mp3 library. What are my options so that while playing music my Jaws will not be heard coming through the home stereo speakers?
