    As in, the sound that is generated from the system, before being outputed through audio jack?

    I am playing around with XMplay, abusing a pluging bug, which allows me to change the music pitch, if I change the frequency mid-playing. Instead of being "changed" the frequency remains the same, but the pitch is modified that way.

    What I would like to do is recording the RAW output, in high quality, in realtime, since I can't just use the native XMplay WAV writter in the process, considering that, like I said, it's caused by an slight output oversight. I would like to be able to save these experiments, to be listenable later on.

    Any suggestion? I would be surprized if there is no software capable of recording the RAW sound output.

    So you want to record the raw sounds which come out of the system? I suggest you use a screen capture software, and then convert the MP4 or whatever to an MP3.

    Is it guarantee to at least keep the current sample rate? I want to get at least 96000hz in lossless .wav :P

    I think this is an interesting topic. I would suggest Hydrogen Audio forums (then come back and tell us the answer :))

    Recording already encoded audio can never be lossless, afaik.

    If you just want to record PC audio though, have you tried just using the built in Stereo Mix?

    the thing is, here, that audio I would like to record is already lossless. it's raw 96000/192000HZ output!

    I simply want to record the Slowed/fasten pitch output realtime, using, of course, lossless 96000hz from my pc :P

    I use Audacity. Just sort out stereo mix on your Windows sound settings to get stereo mix working with Audacity and then you'll be able to record sound from your PC.

    Well, enable Stereo Mix on your PC. Right click the audio icon in the tray, choose Recording Devices, if you don't see Stereo Mix in the list, right-click > "Show disabled devices" and it should pop up. Enable that, then choose it in Audacity. Record a bit then check the spectogram to see if it reaches your desired frequencies.

    Windows XP used to have "what you hear" as record input source with sound blaster card.
    I don't have it anymore on Win7 :(

    Realtek audio has one, it's named "stereo mix", but it's disabled (and hidden) by default in your sound input setting menu.
    right click to display hidden sources and enable it.

    You should be able to use any recorder program now (audacity, goldwave, sound forge, etc.) and select that source as recorder input.
    I tried, but it didn't work, probably because the "stereo mix" is linked to my mother board's sound chipset, and I'm using another sound card.
    if you have multiple output sources, try to set the correct card as default sound.

    Edit:
    Ninja'd by shadowfied :P


    If you don't have stereo mix option:

    I googled quickly, and found one but it seems to save to mp3, which is not RAW HQ you want.

    I think you should be able to find many other software by searching "record what you hear".

    Also of note is if you have a Creative card, they tend to call Stereo Mix "What U Hear" instead.

    Yeah, Audacity is doing exactly what I want! Thanks to everyone who helped me :)

    If mine are named "Mappeur de sons Microsoft" and "Haut Parleur - Conexant SmartAudio", I'd assume that the second option is what I need? :P

    According to Google Trans, that means "Loud Speaker" (sorry, teach me French!)..is that more accurately translated as microphone? If so, then probably not. If it's closer to stereo mix then yeah.

    "haut parleur" is the translation for "speaker"

    Set the default microphone to your computers speakers
    Then go into audacity and set the microphone to your speaker
