Salut Marie-Noelle,

Firstly, are you sure you want to use the "Mix Ana" setting (also called
"Wave Out Mix" on some cards)? This sends as your audio signal the *output*
from your soundcard, i.e. what you'd normally hear. I would have thought
that "Microphone" would normally be more appropriate...

Having said that, if you're _sure_ you want "Mix Ana" the solution to your
problem is as follows:

Don't use the Windows or Audigy Mixer controls to change the source! In the
rat window, below the "Talk" check-box, there is the name of the input
source. You can change this by clicking on the little black arrows. Rat
remembers this setting and automatically re-sets the audio source every time
it is started. Changing this value in rat DOES CHANGE the value in the
Windows mixer, but changing the value in the mixer DOES NOT CHANGE the value
in rat. So... make the change in rat, and you'll only have to make it once.

Hopefully that solves your problem!

A bientot,
