Record Audio From Laptop? *HOW*

aidy40, Aug 15, 7:27am
Hi I need to record some audio onto my laptop I have downloaded Audacity.

The audio is about 4 hours long and I need to be on my laptop at the same time as when it is recording but I don't want to hear it for the whole 4 hours

I have tried to record it and turn the volume down but when I do this the recording goes down in volume as well

Is there a way around this? to not hear what you are recording and the audio just records in the background

Just the system? Maby through the sound card or through the speakers but with them turned down

Just turn down the Windows sound volume - this is the output volume. I think your mistake is to turn down the volume in Audacity - this is the input volume and the recording will be quieter if you turn this down.

Ok I tried that but I can still hear audio while I am recording it?

Plug in headphones/earbuds.

Save the recording as a file?

Turn down the Windows volume - use the mute if you want.
