Utility that records the sound from my computer?

  Bansaw 17:46 21 Jan 2011

My Windows7 computer has stereo-mix as an output (I had to enable it). I also have something like Audacity.
But somehow I cannot record the sound from my own computer. It won't register.

Is there a utility out there that will do it for me? (A bit like SoundFlower for MAC).

You may need to set the input device in Audacity to 'Stereo Mix' as well. G

the Freecorder thing. It works ok and records the sound coming from your pc speakers like stereo mix.
Its free, so I am happy.

The only drawback is that if it detects silence even for two seconds or so, it will stop recording and start a new file when the sound comes back on.
So, in my case, listening to sports stream over my browser, it will cut off every now an then. I am left with multiple mp3 files.

I've been using Freecorder for quite some time. With regard to your point about Freecorder stopping when detecting no sound then starting again:

Complete the recording of track, or tracks. Open Audacity and edit the total recording by separating then exporting each as Mp3.
