How can I record the audio from, say a flash .EXE game in Windows 7? There is no option of Stereo Mix in the audio devices in my laptop. I want to be able to record *any* sound that I can hear in my laptop, in good quality of-course. Is there any software for that?

    I would definitely check out Audacity. It can record audio and then you can edit the file too. It’s powerful and free!

    Freecorder 4 will allow you to record [b]anything that you hear[/b] on your computer and it's free. Google for a free download.

    Use Audacity, it is freeware and freely editing your sounds after recording

    Camtasia Recorder

    (The best option is to go and download the game soundtrack)

    Thanks for all the replies, but sadly none of them work for me. I already know how to record sounds using Audacity or the built-in Sound Recorder, but for recording a sound, a recording device has to be selected, and for my purpose, a "Stereo Mix" option is needed, which is unfortunately not being shown in the Recording Devices section. The only device being shown is the Microphone, which is of no use in this case. Screenshot:

    More info: My Lenovo laptop is about 2 years old, having Windows 7 SP1, and a "Conexant SmartAudio HD" Audio device.
    Can anyone help me with this issue?

      Hello, here is what you could do:

      -- click on start(orb)
      -- control panel
      -- Hardware and sound
      -- Sound
      -- on tabs, click on the recording option
      -- right click on blank area inside box
      -- make sure to checkmark both options; Show Disabled Devices and Show disconnected devices
      -- this should should you the stereo mix option
      -- issue solved

        Even after doing that, there is no stereo mix option.

          Hello, I have and old acer laptop running with windows 7 x64 that has the "conexant smart audio HD" audio device and this is the method I have used in the past whenever I want the stereo mix option to show. Of course it could depend in the rest of the hardware involved.

    Hello, if you are using windows 7 the tools are already incorporated into the operating system. You could try the following:

    -- click on start(orb)
    -- in search bar, type sound recorder and then press enter
    -- once you have opened the program or file that contains sound you want recorded, click on start recording and that is it.

    Or you can download the free program Audacity, for more features and control.
