Windows 7 sound configuration issues

From Adobe's Ron Day, "We have been contacted by several users reporting that they have been unable to record properly into Audition or Soundbooth after switching to Windows 7. In every case thus far the cause has either been improper configuration in the Windows OS, incorrect input devices specified in Audition/Soundbooth, or making use of older sound card drivers or drivers not suitable for use in Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit).

One reason for the confusion in Windows 7 is the fact that the operating system now gives you much more control over the inputs and outputs. You must make sure that you have the correct device and input chosen in Windows 7 before any software application can record input. Audition and Soundbooth must also be configured properly, but the operating system settings will always control the input (unless you are using a higher end sound card that has a control panel of its own).
