Capturing Sound From iTunes

I need to make some 30 second sound samples of my original tracks that I have in iTunes. Whatever I try - seems to be capturing both iTunes and the mic on my computer. So if I am talking - the audacity file has me talking and the iTunes track seems very distant.

I have tried every setting, still not sure what I am doing wrong. Windows 8.1

There must be a way to capture the audio direct from the computer and not the mic, right?

ITunes lets me drag shows right to the desktop. Did you try that?


It is better to import the songs into Audacity, as Koz said. But if the songs are M4A/AAC format, you;ll need to add FFmpeg to your computer. See this link

If you must record playback, see this link
