sound capture from speakers

Postby AVITRY » Fri Dec 10, 2010 4:02 pm

Hi all. Does anyone know of a good shareware program I can use to capture sounds from my speaker/sound card?

I thought audacity might do it but I can't seem to find a way. I tried a few programs from download.com like "soundcapture 1.01" It just crashed ... "freesound capture" that program also crashed ... LOL :) EVERYTHING is a project. :)

Hi Joe,
First be sure your audio card driver is up to date. Realtek Audio can be a real pain when it comes to stuff like this and doesn't always work. So if you have RealTek audio that is probably your main problem.

Audacity should work fine, you have to select "what you hear" or "stereo mix" as your source. You also have to make sure that the those same sound options are not being muted.

I've always used Total Recorder from High Criteria. http://www.highcriteria.com/productfr.htm

I usually uninstall it after I'm finished using it because it may interfere with some apps.
