Sound capture





Tony The Tiger
Is there freeware that will enable my Hewlett Packard Pavilion DV7 with Windows 7 to capture sound from the sound card rather than the microphone so that I don't get background noises?

I think you can use http://camstudio.org/ for that.

That certainly seems to be what I am looking for. I will download it and experiment with it.

I just use Audacity and switch my input device from microphone to stereo mix, which takes all the sound that comes from your sound card.

That still seems to be recording my keystroke sounds.

I have just realized that in order to do this I had to go on to my Windows XP machine. This is not possible in Windows 7.

As long as you have up to date Win7 drivers, selecting your Line input, or mic input, rather than the built in mic, shouldn't be a problem in Audacity... it should appear in the source drop down menu. If you're having trouble, consult the help file, or, failing that, Audacity has a lot of useful documentation on their website.

I have the choices you mention, but none of them really seems to record from the sound card.

Wait.
By "record from the sound card", are you meaning record what's coming from the sound card? Not something plugged into the sound card? i.e. something that you're currently playing ON the computer?

I think he was asking that.

If any external player means ,plug it into line in.
Then record a sound by selecting Line-in ad recording device.

I don't see any of those options on my software in Windows 7.

I was using Audacity. It seems like you are saying that I can record from the sound card using Windows Movie Maker. It is not clear to me how I could possibly record a sound using this software. I will ask around for some advice to see if this is really possible.

What file formats does it produce? Does it capture sound directly from the sound card or does it use the microphone (i.e. will it capture my kestroke sounds and ambient noise?)

I think found you a good sound recorder.
This software will help you to record a voice from microphone or music played by any player.

What I need is capturing sound directly from the sound card not the microphone. I am sort of satisfied with my audacity at this point.

I've been wondering the same for ages now. I tried looking around for a while but couldnt' find anything. The problem is that most webpages and most people will recommend you record the "stereo mix", however whether the windows 7 PC even has a stereo mix thing is upto to the sound card that the PC/laptop has. So Tony The Tiger and I need another solution...
