    So, I'm quite a newbie to home recording. I play guitar and wanted to record some song from a scratch, so I installed few softweres, and thought, here I go now. But, I have a big problem, coz for example Sound Forge takes everythnig from the sound card, not only the signal from the line in. I would like, for example, to play a simple click, a metronome or something, and it records the click too, or some file played through the media player. Same thing with Audacity...Is it possible to fix this? I need your advice really bad! Thanks!

    Yes, you should slow down and explain clearly your issue. Nobody can help you if they cannot understand what is going on.

    Getting your stuff working right takes a bunch of time to understand and it can be frustrating, its natural.

    I don't work with Sound forge or Audacity either. You want to make sure your drivers are working with your sound card and everything checks out well before getting involved with software issues.

    BTW, welcome to R.O!

    At a guess, you have your record input set to Stereo Mix.

    Go to the control panel, check the audio settings for recording (not playback) and make sure it's Line In.
