How do I enable Stereo Mix on Sony Vaio

    Question

  • I have a Sony VAIO VPCEB24FD. I'm trying to broadcast audio from my computer to my friends (songs I listen to from my computer). I've read on the forums that it has something to do with a "stereo mix". So the audio driver I have installed is a "high definition audio device" by Microsoft. Digital version 6.1.7600.16385. Can someone walk me through the steps I need to take to be able to broadcast audio through manycam?

    PS. I've already checked my disabled devices, stereo mix isn't there.

  • Hi,

     

    Please ensure stereo mix is supported by the sound card.

     

    I would suggest you to visit your computer manufacturer’s website and download and install the latest sound card (audio) drivers.

    If the stereo mix does not show in sound panel after right-clicking and selecting Show Disabled Devices, it may indicate that the sound card does not support the stereo mix function. In order to confirm this, you can contact Sony manufacturer:

  • Believe it or not the update actually removed things. I didn't get a stereo mix, but I lost the ability to disable my microphone jack (not that I really cared abou that). I guess my laptop doesn't have stereo mix.

     

    Thanks!

    You can get Stereo mix on Vista or Windows 7. Just follow the below links:

    Try this to Enable Stereo Mix on Windows 7 | Enable Stereo Mix on Windows Vista

    Or Use Virtual Audio Cable to resolve Stereo Mix issue

  • I just figured something clever;

    Get a male to male audio cable and plug it in to both the Earphone jack and the Microphone jack. Then use whatever software you are using to record and set it so that it records the Microphone's audio feed.

  • Hey Alex!

    Is there a substitute to the stereo mix option then?
