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.)

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!
