reduce output volume whilst recording internet audio

i want to record audio from you tube. most of the time my computer will be in the same room as me and I may be talking to customers. I don’t want them to hear what I’m recording. Can I reduce the output volume with disturbing the recording volume? if so how can I do this? :slight_smile: many thanks.

Plug your headphones in.


wow as simple as that. :astonished:

That also gives you the ability to quickly check the progress of the recording by simply picking up the headphones and listening. No complicated settings or controls that might damage the recording.

If you’re in a quiet room, you may be able to hear the headphones, but not if you’re in a business.
