Some times you would like to record a contact, both sides of a contact  But DAX only gives you one side at a time..  The solution is in Windows 'Manage audio devices'. 
   1) Select a DAX channel on the receive slice that you will be using ( DAX 1 in this example )
   2) Open the Windows audio device manager from the Windows control panel.
   3) Select the recording tab and navigate to 'DAX Audio RX 1' and open its properties.
   4) Select the 'Listen' tab
   5) Check 'Listen to this device'
   6) In Playback through this device select 'DAX RESERVED MIC AUDIO'
   7) select Apply.
 DAX 1 RX audio is now merged into the DAX MIC audio stream (but not into TX audio).


In your recording software, select DAX MIC Audio for recording..

Caveats... 
The Mic audio is always present even when not transmitting. 
Ths will not work for CW since sidetone/monitor audio is not currently present in DAX
You will forget that you have 'Listen' selected and it will bite you later.
You will  likely need to redo this selection after a major Windows update.
