How do you record Windows sound from your PC at the best quality without loss?

A method that I introduced to you a few years ago involves using a Windows setting called Stereo Mix.
Unfortunately, Stereo Mix is ​​not present on any PC, so we had to find another solution. PCs and new laptops do not seem to have Stereo Mix, or their sound cards do not support Stereo Mix

How do I record audio in Windows without Stereo Mix?

The solution was right under our noses all this time, "hidden from view" in Audacity and it's called Windows WASAPI, or Windows Audio Session API.
The Windows WASAPI setting makes it possible for the operating system to record sound without any loss.

Error resolution on 5.1 speaker systems

If you have the sound set on 5.1, you will get an error. This error can be easily resolved by switching to Stereo (from the sound card settings).

Download Audacity, software for recording, editing and audio processing!

If Audacity seems interesting to you, we have other video tutorials on this topic.

  1. Thanks for the tutorial. I've tried this method now and it's really okay like sound. Is there any difference in quality between these methods? I did not find out.

  2. Congratulations . I use "Apowersof" older version 2.3.4, you can also find the new one, but it will ask you to register. Very simple and efficient!

  3. It reads "dare", with emphasis on the second syllable, and not "dare"!

    • That's not the point, everyone reads like that, it's better to understand what it means.

    • If we use a strange English accent, it is not understood what it is about. Some do this, pronouncing in another language but it's not an idea, because it is too far from what is seen

  4. It worked well with the 2nd method. I really needed it. Thanks.

  5. I'm writing a second time that it went well, did it delete what I wrote before?
