Software to redirect audio between multiple sound cards?

I'm looking for a simple way to redirect the Line-IN input from my SB Extigy to the output of my internal Creative sound card in real time.

I realize I could directly connect my Extigy to the Creative's Line-IN, but I would prefer to use a software solution for Windows XP.

I believe this tool, called "Line-In" for Mac OS X, found at:

can do exactly what I'm looking for, but I need a Windows solution.

Thanks!

Can't you use the soundblaster mixer? Open the mixer by clicking two times on the icon in systray. Select options, properties, recording and select the extigy source for recording. In options/properties/playing select the internal creative card.

I'm not sure if that works every time or only in recording mode.

crissand, thanks for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, this solution won't do exactly what I'm looking for.  I tried it out, and like you said, this will enable me to record from the extigy and play back through my main sound card.  But I need to be able to get the live audio to feed through my creative card, and currently I can only get live audio if I connect speakers or headphones to the extigy.

If you start Creative recorder, but don't press record, does the sound pass from extigy input to internal card putput? Can you hear something?

Ok, while I don't have Creative Recorder exactly, I think I found my solution.   If I fire up Audacity, select my input and output devices, and check the box that says something like "enable software playthrough"  I can get my desired result.

As soon as I start the recording, I can hear the audio through my internal card, then, if I Pause the recording in Audacity, the audio continues to play through my speakers.   While this solution isn't ideal, it's going to work perfectly for what I want it to do.   Thanks for the suggestion, it really got me going in the right direction.

Creative Recorder is part of the Creative media, but if you don't need it, don't use it. :-)

Glad to help!
