    the audio that is played in your computer prior to going to speakers

    right now, the only recording solution i can find has to use a mic as the source

    imagine not having speakers hooked up to your computer but still recording audio that would be playing on your computer

    Ok stupid question, why would you want to record the internal sounds?

    For example, to digitally capture audio from a streaming radio station playing in iTunes so you can save it for later.

    EDIT: That's what I would use such software for.

    Ok. Audacity can do it and they have a build for Mac OS X and its free. Here is the link:

    Hope this helps.

    Digital in is the one you want.

    Hope it works for you, I don't see why it shouldn't. I have used Audacity before, the UI is a bit clunky the last time I used it, however functionally it did exactly what I wanted to do.

    I can look on my machine when I get home, I know you can do it with Audacity but I just can't remember off the top of my head.
