Accessing Stereo Mix

Italian

You want to get sound that you're playing back on your PC into vvvv via AudioIn (Devices). Simply select the Stereo Mix (sometimes called Rec. Playback or similar) option on its Driver. If there is no such option try the following to make the option available in vvvv:

Windows Vista/7/8

  • Make sure you have installed correct drivers for your sound card. After having done so restart vvvv and see if the option is now available, if not:
  • Check the Recording settings under: Control Panel > Sound > Recording Tab. Try to right click on empty space and check if Disabled / Disconnected Devices are visible. There you may see disabled devices. Rightclick and enable them, then restart vvvv to see if the option is now available.
Sound Recording Settings
If there are still no other devices than a Microphone under Recording Tab, then the only way to get a sound back from the sound card is to grab a cable and physically connect line-out and line-in (if you have one) on your machine.

If this doesn't work for you as well you'll need a different soundcard to get this going. You can still play audio files though with FileStream (DShow9), FileStream (Bass), WavePlayer (DShow9) and the likes.

Windows XP

Create a AudioRecordSelector (System) node.

  • If it is red: you don't seem to have a soundcard or no driver installed for it.
  • If it is not red: check the Device to see if there are some devices available, choose 'Stereo Mix'.

Here is how it looks like:
