    OS - Vista Ultimate 32-Bit

    Realtek HD Audio
    Driver Version - 6.0.1.5443
    Audio Codec - ALC885

    Problem - Well the problem is when I'm recording a song(in Audacity) with the background music playing in Audacity , the music also gets recorded and it ruins the whole recording . This should not happen as I'm using headphones while recording. The same problem used to happen when I was using XP . But I got rid of that from the Volume Control of XP. But in vista there are hardly any options to customize the sound mixer .

    So in short I want that when I record the song there should be only vocals and not music. Please help!

    you need to play the music from another source, playing it AUDACITY whilst RECORDING from MIC in the same program is bound to do that,

    try playing the music from WMP and record your AUdio in AUDACITY

    no it is not helping . Even if I play the music in another player the problem still presists.

    If I press the record button and keep my mic somewhere else and don't say anything still the music gets recorded .

    It is the same thing as recording the song which is currently playing in your pc for example- some people record online audio streams so that they can save it as mp3 file

    you need to run your audio device software and move over to the RECORDING section and disable ALL but MIC.... i know Vista is limited but your audio device (e.g. Realtek) will have its own software that controls the audio.. try finding it in control panel - they usually run at boot - if u disabled it try enabling it to run at boot
