To say the least I am overwhelmed. There is a video tribute to Geo Harrison that is not available commercially that I want to copy the audio tract from the video. I have looked and I would think it would be one of the first things in the manual would be how to set up Audacity. I did a recording and it recorded through my Mic instead of a closed loop which naturally degraded the sound. How can I capture the recording on a closed loop? The PC is playing the audio and it should be capable of recording the audio in a closed line method. Can you tell me how to do this? Thanks on advance!
For Windows it’s generally best to use “WASAPI loopback”. See here: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_windows.html

It’s also right at the top of the list of people looking for copyright violations.

If you already have a digital audio/video file on your computer you can directly open the file to get the audio without re-recording it. (For most A/V formats you’ll need to install FFmpeg. Simply download and then RUN [u]ffmpeg-win-2.2.2.exe[/u] to install it.)
