Question Record from digital input to sound card


I want to record what my internal soundcard is playing. Is there a way to do this?

Let us take an example - Internet Radio. What I don't want is, for example, this chain
Internet Source--> soundcard --> speaker --> microphone --> disk, with all the hassle involved. I want to process the input to the sound card, and get all the analog components out of the loop.

I'm no audio buff, so I just hope the answer isn't impossible or too obvious.

This would probably be a different ball game with a usb sound card, and more might be achieved.

As far as I know Audacity will record from either a microphone or any application playing sound.

On fedora 23, use the pulse audio volume control app to configure devices, and set the recording device to "monitor of whateverdevice". Then in audacity there is a device toolbar to configure recording device (in my case pulse), output device. I'm able to record anything I can hear. Be careful to use the right recording device in audacity, or your recording levels may be affected by your system volume control. Also for me muting from the xfce volume control app will turn off the stream to audacity, but I can lower the volume to where I can't hear playback, just not muted.

I only use it because it's been the default in Fedora for quite a while.
