A little over a month ago I built a new computer with a Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H motherboard. I never messed with stereo mix till today.
I noticed that the sound is really quiet. So quiet that I can barely hear it. I use headphones and no speakers.
Another thing I noticed is that if I disable my outputs it or mute them the stereo mix will not record anything. It seems to record the volume lower than what is played. Which is really weird because I never had that happen before.
The motherboard came with Via Envy HD and I updated the device driver to 184.108.40.20600 when I built the PC.
Not sure what the issue could be though. Any thoughts?
