    That is a good point, why are there two computers involved?

    Surely you can do this internally, or at least by plugging the output back into the input of the interface.

    As I said Jay, I seem to have read that (for protectionist reasons) Win 10 has removed this internal 'loop back' facility. I have also read of others having a problem with versions of 8 and 8.1, even W7 because of hidden 'stops' or soundcard drivers or CODEC issues.

    I will have an ask around and see if I can get some accurate dope.

    Dave.

    I've got Roxio on my music computer and this records pretty well whatever the computer is putting out - I use an external sound interface, and it records the same stream that is going out to it. It records uncompressed and then you have the option to save as .wav or .mp3, which of course loses something, but not huge amounts at 320Kbs

    Like Rob, I have Roxio (ancient version) that I can can record with, and the recorded sound is exactly the same as going in. Win7
