I currently use Audacity's WASAPI feature to capture the audio being outputted by my PC's sound card. I am now, however, in need of a way to capture both audio output as well as microphone input on the same track. It doesn't look like this is possible in Audacity, and I don't want to open up 2 Audacity windows and record output in one and input in the other and then merge them (it would be hard to make the timing exact and even then, I don't know if that would work).

I like Audacity because it is easy to use and is portable (no admin rights required to install which is essential). Is there any lightweight utility I can use that would be able to capture both output and input simultaneously?

  • See if any of these work for you portablefreeware.com/index.php?sc=317 – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Apr 19 '18 at 0:49
  • @DuarteFarrajotaRamos Sadly, it looks like none of those (otherwise great) utilities allow for recording from 2 inputs simultaneously (speaker and microphone). In fact, only Audacity seems like it will allow for recording output as an input, but not output and input at the same time – InterLinked Apr 22 '18 at 11:47
