Why is there no “Record what you hear” function with M-Audio hardware?
Text size [-] [+]

Q: Why is there no “Record what you hear” function with M-Audio hardware?

A: The feature to “Record what you hear” is done with the use of the Windows kernel mixer. M-Audio device drivers bypass the Windows kernel mixer in order to maintain the integrity of the audio and reduce latency. Because the Windows kernel mixer is bypassed, there can be no "Record what you hear" feature.
 
As an alternative, you can use software to perform the same function as “Record what you hear”. Virtual Audio Cable (PC) or Audio Hijack (Mac) are examples of such software.
