This is probably simple but I have been messing with it a few days, I will try to be brief
Windows 7 professional, Dell tower pc, using audacity 2.1.0 trying to record sound I hear thru the pc (via firefox browswer) into an mp3.
My setup is a bit unique I use a line6 usb audio interface for my guitar, so in audacity under edit/preferences I have devices set as wubdiws directsound (ive tried all three MME and WASAPI btw no luck), playback speakers line6 ux2, recording digital audio interface line6 ux2, channels 2 stereo.
I go in and play something thru firefox (audio off a video), I open audacity, i click “monitor” or “record” i see nothing “coming in” just a flat line and no sound.
I went into the pc side of things for playback devices and confirmed line6 ux2 is chosen, went into recording preferences, clicked listen to this device set as line6 ux2, made sure level was up not muted or 0, have messed around with a few different settings on both the audacity and on the pc side of things to try and get this to work, but whenever I play (and can hear) the audio from a video off firefox, in audacity doesn’t matter what I choose it’s not “hearing it” I get flatline nothing when i try to record.
I spent about half hour each night trying different settings here with no luck so I figured I would ask it’s probably something SO simple idk hopefully I have helped give some info here to maybe start to try and sort out what I am doing wrong?
Originally what I was trying to do was record my guitar track ALONG side the live sound of a backing track off firefox (youtube video), I can record the guitar fine but even just trying to record ONLY the audio from the firefox/youtube video i can’t get audacity to “hear” it to record it separately much less real time with me playing along with it.
