Recording with WASAPI

2.4.2

I have successfully used wasapi to record output from streaming sources but I notice a distinct reduction in full-bodied tone. I tried boosting the bass and treble by 3db and it helped a little but the sound is still a little flat and tinny. What’s up?

Are you certain that you are recording from “WASAPI loopback” (set as the recording input in the Device Toolbar) and not from your laptop’s microphone?
