I'm not too familiar with audio, but I want to be able to record what I hear my PC playing (through browser, games, etc) The output when played comes across all 5 channels (some music fades between each channel so I know the music playing must support 5.1 channel), but when I record in Soundbooth, it just ends up with 2 channels (left and right)
I'm using Win 7 Pro x64 and a XtremeGamer 7.1 card by Creative. Can someone enlighten me if Soundbooth is capable of recording this or is my hardware not capable of 5.1 recording (just 5.1 playback)?
I got a response from Creative, who is telling me that my request is limited by software, not hardware. In other words, if I have hardware that can support 5.1 playback, I would simply need software that supports multi-channel audio recording.
It seems like Soundbooth CS5 is not capable of this.
