Hello I was wondering if there is a program to record sound....what I mean is, I want to be able to capture a song that is played on a website without having to put a microphone near my speaker and record it that way. Any suggestions?

-Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes. Its from a myspace music page.

I installed the SUPER program but the problem is that the music does not have a URL. In order to hear the music I have to goto http://www.myspace.com/shinytoyguns and then click on the song "Don't Cry Out" to hear it. The link to the song is "asfunction:playTune,2" which is obviously not a valid URL.

What should I do?

-Thanks in advance

The UnPlug plug-in for Firefox will allow you to download from any media link on the page.

OR [only works for one minute] you can go to Volume Controls, click Options->Advanced Controls and choose Recording Controls [or is it Options?] and click the check-box next to "Select" under "Stereo Mix." Then use Sound Recorder [or if you've got something better for recording mic sound, try that] to record it.

If you use the Sound recorder that is built into Windows you can bypass the one minute limit by opening an existing file that is longer than 1 minute and simply re-recording it. The one minute limit only applies to a brand new recorded file and NOT existing files that are re-recorded. (y)

Yeah, or by using "Insert File..." but that requires precision beyond what I could manage with SR alone.

Trying to record something coming out of your speakers is crazy. The quality will be terrible and you may hear other noise.

You would be better off recording "Line-out." I don't think Audacity can. WavePad will record line-out which is your speaker line, it also has some great effects....

I would say, "Right out of the Box"--- but, since it is free--- you don't get a box. Works great with system sounds, game sounds, USP Microphones, Line Input/output. AND the price is FREE, all updates are free, and you can load it on as many machines as you have access to, and give it to your friends--- freely.

Essentially what I suggested, only simplified. I may have to use this someday, myself! Thanks, ferrija. (y) :D

Yeah, I like it because you can preview effects, in Audacity, you have to guess at the settings, though there are more effects.
