    how do i capture sound?


    hello!

    for example i have sound playing currently from an application, i wanna capture this sound coz it's not in ogg,mp3,wav or other common audio format (i looked from the installed files and there doesn't seem to be one). what application do i use to do this, or is there one?

    thanks!

    I use Audacity to record. I think you could set it in record mode, then run the application's sound you want to capture and it would record it.

    I didn't know audacity could that, got to check it out again.

    I've been hearing lots of good stuff about jack though - I belive I read that it could link apps together like output of one app as input to another.

    As I say, I *think* it can be done this way but don't hold me to it.
    It seems logical since Audacity is going to record what goes through the sound card. Audacity is very easy to install and has a simple yet powerful interface. I prefer it over other high cost sound editing apps.
