  1. How do I record my computer's audio?


    Recently I built a PC and am now working on Windows 10. I am trying to record sounds right off my computer. I remember The StereoMix input was working for a few seconds when I first started trying to solve this. I have done troubleshooting in the SoundControlPanel and I can't figure it out. When I try to select a Audio Input Device in Ableton, it says "Failed to open audio input device". I tried Audacity and have the same issue. Voicemeeter Banana works and has input, but it has incredibly distorted audio., like a constant skipping glitch compressed noise.

    Also, while I am installing things I will get incredibly bad glitch audio, like constant popping and skipping. For example, when install a game on Steam, and while it is installing I try to watch a video or listen to music. Sometimes if I am using Ableton and watch a video, Then Ableton audio will be very glitchy even without playing anything. I have to turn the Ableton CPU usage off and on and it fixes it.

    This is very frustrating, on my Mac all I had to do was install SoundFlower and then I could reroute the computer output to Ableton and also hear what it was recording.

    Realtek High Definition audio drivers. I also have Asio4all and realtek Asio. I also have the VB audio Voicemeeter Banana and High-Fi cable. Should I reformat my computer? Should I buy a Audio Interface and then route all my sound to that, and also can record sounds in from my laptop?
