KMix has a green 'led' above the sliders that controls whether or not 
the output path is driven.  Conversely, it has a red 'led' below the 
slider that controls whether or not that inpout will be fed to the 
record or capture circuitry.  So you'll want to enable the red led, and 
disable the green one for skype, audacity, etc.
