    In the last 2 months, my Stereo Mix stopped picking up sound


    Sometime over the last 2 or 3 months, my StereoMix stopped picking up sounds. I remember I had to adjust it then to listen with a headset, but since then, it doesn't work. It is Enabled, and it is Default. I've also tried disabling everything else Microphone Array and Microphone and even disabling the SteroMix for a week. But still, it is not picking up any sound.

    :)

    Stereo mix stopped working

    So I record with an elgato HD60 but in order to get the sound to work I have to use stereo mix and that's what I do but for some reason it just stopped picking up sound! I have tried so many websites and forums but nothing what do I do? (stereo mix still
    can play sound like if I play music directly to stereo mix but I want it to pick up the computer audio)

  3. Stereo mix not picking up any sound

    After clearing two google pages of forum posts it has became clear to me that this is a very common problem, but the common fixes aren't working for me.

    I want to use stereo mix to output my sound to two different headsets simultaneously, by using "listen to device" on stereo mix, with it outputting stereo mix to the second headset. This is beside the point however as stereo mix is quite simply not picking
    up any sound.

    I have:

    -updated realtek audio drivers

    -set the correct device as default (it already was)

    -gone into realtek driver settings and changed the playback settings

    -cried

    Below are screenshots of my sound control panel.

    My headset is quite unique in that it has two separate audio devices, one for communication apps and the other for everything else - but I'm not interested in stereo mix picking up the chat. The problem is Stereo Mix is just not picking up any sound whatsoever,
    the green volume bar never shows there being any sound.

    Hi Nicholas,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    Try the following steps to enable the stereo mix and check if that help.



    a) Right click on the audio icon in your system tray and select “Recording Devices” to open the Recording device settings in the “Sound” window.



    b) In the pane, right-click on a blank area, and make sure both “View Disabled Devices” and “View Disconnected Devices” options are checked. You should be able to see the “Stereo Mix” option appearing.



    c) Right-click on “Stereo Mix” and click “Enable” to be able to use it.



    This should enable the “Stereo Mix” on Windows



    Method 2:

    If the issue persists then I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the sounds card driver and check if it helps.


    • Right Click on Start, Select Device Manager.

    • Find and double-click the category of device whose driver you wish to uninstall.

    • Right-click the device, and click Uninstall.

    • Windows will prompt you to confirm the device’s removal. Click
      OK to remove the driver.

    • After the uninstallation is complete, reboot your computer as soon as possible


    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further. Thank you.
