I just fired up a new PC and the chipset included a Creative Labs Recon3i on board. I'd forgotten what a joy "What U Hear" was when it comes to creating Audio...

Gigabyte has a few motherboard with Creative audio, I'm guessing the motherboard you listed is one of them. You might want to check because some of the motherboards also have a 600 ohm headphone receptacle with the headphone op-amp chip plugged into a socket so you can swap the op-amp out to change the frequency profile.

I'm still very much of a Creative fan over both Realtek and Intel audio.

My ancient box of tricks runs Creative Audigy card and I've always been pleased with it. Didnt know that "what you hear" was semi-unique to them.

Windows 7 used to have "Stereo Mix" but that went away. It's always been a pain to record in Windows since (unless you had advanced drivers like Creative Labs.)

I just found this though .. If you use Audigy (which is pretty good.)

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
