I have Audacity 2.3.0 and I wanted to record from a streaming MP3. I started preparing 15 minutes before the program and I failed! So frustrating. I thought Audacity might make this easy to do, but no…
I’m giving up, but I thought I would post this as feedback.
I used Menu > Transport > Recording > Timer Record. It successfully records exactly what goes to the speakers, but the problem is that I wanted to mute the speakers so I can support clients while I do this recording silently.
Audacity seems to have no way to input from Firefox (I used Firefox to play the streaming MP3). Instead, it inputs from the mixer output ONLY. If I mute the speakers, the recording records silence! If I plug in a headphone, also silence!
