Is there a possible way to set my sound settings so that when I record I can hear it through speakers or headphones? Like hear simultaneously (sp?) while I'm recording, so I can hear myself sing. I have the almighty Ac97 integrated sound drivers.

I have adobe audition and sony soundforge, if anybody got any tips that'd be helpful. thanks.

1. Open up your sound control panel on the start bar next to the system time. If you don't have the icon there, go to control panel->sound and audio devices anc check the box that says "Place volume icon in the taskbar"
2. Click on Options->Properties
3. Adjust volume for "Playback"
4. Make sure the Line In checkbox is checked. If you're using your mic port to record, make sure that box is checked too.
5. Click Ok
6. Find the right fader (Microphone or Line In), uncheck the Mute box, and adjust the slide fader until you hear yourself play at a comfortable level.

You don't hear yourself while recording. Most PCs no longer support that feature of sound cards because of it being used for piracy by programs such as Sound Leech to record audio from YouTube videos.

You buy an audio interface and you buy a mixer.

This, minus the mixer part. You don't need a mixer.

what? since when? all my computers (the oldest of which is 3 years old, the newest is ~4 months) still have the ability to do that. Just open the Control Panel, choose Hardware and Sound, then choose Sound. Click across to the Recording tab, select the device you want to hear then choose Properties. Click across to the Listen tab, then check the box saying Listen to this device. Then you can hear it back.

Your recording software will almost certainly have an 'input monitoring' button. It'll probably have a little speaker or something on it.

I'd like to see a source on that, especially since I can still walk into a store and there are quite a few soundcards avaliabe. Sure, most nowadays are built into the motherboard but thats a retarded ass reason to stop making them.

It is simply not true, perhaps his current sound device doesn't support it, But the majority definitely do. By the way... OP was from 2006 anyway..
