Default Mic problem on audigy2 platinum

I have a sound blaster audugy 2 platinum, (the one with the front 5.25 bay). This sound card comes with two mic inputs, one on the pci card and one on the front bay. I use the front bay because its easily accessable and it has a volume control.

Here is the problem: When I play a game like cs or css the mic does not work for the chat option. It seems like when ever I open a program that uses the mic the audigy software defaults it to mic1 (where mic2 is the front bay one). The same thing happens when I use skype. And every time a new map loads in cs or css it defaults mic1 to be the selected one.

Now for a temp fix I have to get in the map i am playing then atltab out to get to the volume control feature (under: start >> programs >> accessories >> entertainment). Then I have go under options to properties change it from playback to recording then select mic2 over mic1.

I have to do this every time, and its getting very annoying. How do I make the mic selection perminate?

Thanks for any help.
