How can I record audio on my laptop?

Sheldon Swartz October 22, 2012

My new Sony Vaio computer running Windows 7 64-bit does not have any audio input except microphone. When I record anything from within my own computer, or from a Website, it’s distorted and in mono. Is there a fix for this? Thanks!!

    Have you tried an M AUDIO or equivalent Audio / Midi interface?

    I had one that was firewire and USB which worked a treat when i had no input jack.

    Seems as if nobody read my question properly, so I dug around and found the solution that worked, although it cost me $18.

    Total Recorder (I don't sell it) enables my computer to record like "stereo mix" whether from online audio sources (such as Youtube) or from within my own PC (use Adobe Audition).

    Simple install, simple to use, and it works. I found it via someone else's tip somewhere.

    BTW, Stereo Mix IS part of Windows 7. Depends on the PC manufacturer. My PC is by Sony, which also is a music-producing Powerhouse. Thus the sound card does NOT have anything but a microphone in and speaker out, to discourage people from recording audio from online sources. Sony's tech support confirmed that with me, directly.

    No, you need to buy a more advanced tools. If you are serious you need to provide a sound system that will record sound in a better quality. My friend use a sound system to make tutorials, so the sound will not be so bad.
