Is there a program to capture sound
#1
I need to record some sounds from different websites.   I know you can often download them but sometime they've got protection that prevents you.

I just need to rip some sounds the old fashion way.  Anything that can record them?

I've used:

.. for over a decade. It's not free. It's worth the modest cost of the basic license.
It taps in to your (sorry - I assume you're on Windows?) computer's sound system and records what you hear the computer playing, so copy protection and script tricks on websites, Amazon's player app, etc, can't detect/block it.

You can use any screen recording util then just extract the audio
If you got the virtual "Stereo Mix" device like myself just use Audacity and capture the sound from that device, it'll be sounds from your PC

You can try FFMPEG if you want to do it the "old fashion way".

Here is some to documentation for basic capturing:

There are many applications that can do this. A free one is Audacity. A really easy one to use is Audio Record Wizard. It's not free but there is a torrent out there Smile But it's not that expensive if you would rather pay.

What about Goldwave?

Haven't heard from that program for some time now, haven't we?

I cheated.

I got a cord and plugged my desktop's speaker jack into my laptop's microphone jack. I played the music on my desktop and recorded it with my laptop.

That's more like being innovative, not cheating!

How was the sound quality?

I didn't notice any loss in quality. 

The trick is get a really good cord and keep it as short as possible.     hint:  You can order the parts to make a cord on Amazon and make a SUPER high quality cord for a fraction of the cost.

I did something similar with my last desktop speakers and every laptop I have owned.  Crap-ass, tinny laptop speakers drive me nuts.  It didn't take me long to figure out that the affordable external speakers you can buy at any big box store were far inferior to the speakers I already had with my last desktop.  They were made by a company that has long had an excellent reputation for its speakers--the company still makes external speakers for computers, but you have to purchase them separately now and they are VERY expensive. More than twenty years later those speakers are going strong as ever, but everything else with my old desktop bricked up more than a decade ago.

I have never hooked up two computers like you described for recording sound, although I do have a cord that would work for that.  Good to know that that is an option.
