I am looking for software that primarily let me mix sound over all devices, sound-cards etc.

For example to have sound mixed over a blue-tooth headset and laptop speakers.

It should also be possible to see where which apps (Like SKype for example) want to send sound where.

(This seems to be a bit different from what one usually looks for in an audio mixer).

Anything within Audacity?

Maybe something like VAC? –  slhck Jan 27 '12 at 13:26
Perhaps - but it is PAY –  Olav Jan 27 '12 at 14:54

For Windows 7, Stereo Mix about like this: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-sound/is-it-possible-to-have-speakers-and-hdmi-play-at/4563a5f8-4be4-4463-b312-eff594a9ae49

If not, then probably VAC (payware) from comment.

It might depend on audiocards and drivers.

I already gave this answer yesterday but since its not upvoted, i can't link to it as a duplicate. So I have to repeat my answer.

Jack is a freeware software which emulates a virtual audio driver like VAC.
It can play sound on multiple devices. Give it a try.

JACK is system for handling real-time, low latency audio. It can connect a number of different applications to an audio device, as well as allowing them to share audio between themselves. Its clients can run in their own processes (ie. as normal applications).

Yes, there is something within Audacity. It's a bit hard to find, but it's actually even documented properly.

Here's the crucial bit:

Select your speaker device and Audacity will record everything that you hear through your speakers.
