How can I get Audacity to record computer output more clearly?
A while ago, on my older computer I used audacity to record music and other things from the audio output from my computer without losing quality. I've recently decided to try doing this again on my new computer, however when I record, its very quiet in comparison to the output and it almost sounds like it is being recorded from an outside source, like holding up a microphone to a low-quality speaker. I've tested if it was just recording from the microphone on my headset, but it was not.
Is there any way I could record the output at the same volume that it is played at and at the same quality? I'm currently on the Beta version of audacity because the older version does not support Windows 7, I think that may be a factor in why this is happening.
