Problem recording with audacity

Hello,

I got a problem with trying to record something with audacity. I would like to record a piece from a youtube video.

my setup is windows 10 and i use and MPC touch as an audio interface. I use windows direct sound and both the input and the output are selected to my MPC touch. When i play the piece of audio that i want to record i just get no input in audacity…

Any help? Thanks

Does your computer also have a built-in sound card? If so, use that and configure it as described here, using “WASAPI loopback”: https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_windows.html
