It'll probably be a while before there is an AGTk version that works okay 
with Vista, as RAT would also need to be modified to be compatible with 
Vista. Under Vista, soundcards are now divided into separate recording and 
playback devices, so RAT doesn't list any audio devices as RAT requires the 
audio devices to have both input and output.

The RealTek HD audio driver on WinXP has a similar issue, the soundcard 
driver has separate input and output mixer devices.
