    Hey there,

    I'm having a problem. When I go to record vocals, (or anything for that matter) over a track, the bed track also records into the vocal track. It seems to be a software setting or something, because even when I unplug the speakers/headphones and any input, I'm still getting this problem. The output sounds are being taken as input.

    I'd genuinely appreciate the help!

    You need to

    (1) Double check the licensing information for CEP - it should match the name on your birth certificate.

    (2) Goto the RECORDING tab in the Realtek manager and set it to be either LINE IN or MIC IN depending on which you're using. It should NOT be Stereo Mix.

    FWIW, Kristal is free for hobbyist purposes, will allow you as much flexibility as CEP, and doesn't need to be acquired from Limewire.
