Well, I did this question in the Samplitude general forum but, as always, ZERO answers... and in the specific forum I cannot register myself (it seems that they don't allow strangers...).

So, could anyone tell me if there is a way to capture audio from sound card in Samplitude?

Thanks in advance!

Well, maybe I wasn't clear enough, sorry... I just would like to know if, for exemple, it was possible to record/capture a song from the internet directly in Samplitude.

I never tried this before and where I am this moment I cannot plug any interface in PC. I just would like to capture some audios from some websites, but I am not sure if Samplitude can do this...

With certain PC motherboards it's easy. You find the motherboard connector socket that takes the S/PDIF I/O connector and place a jumper link between the input and output pins. You then direct the browser sound output to the digital out and the DAW input to the digital in. All Internet sound is directed straight into your DAW.

It works really well. You can leave the link in place if you are not using the S/PDIF I/O for anything else.

Wow. Thanks Boz!!! Didn’t know this was possible.

As an aside, I actually purchased Magix video pro, specifically for its ability to do video screen captures.

I find the Magix / Xara registration system downright confusing since different product lines have different user areas. Way to weird, but my only complaint about Magix ever. I brought that up in the thread here on RO, and they said we could expect changes on that in the pretty near future. You may want to address your concern on the thread. Magix is pretty good about responding.

This is the thread I’m referring to.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away... Lol...
My first audio i-o ( '90 maybe?) was a pci card, from Digital Audio Labs - actually it was two cards, one was an A/D with a 10 XLR jack breakout cable, and the other, which was a completely different pci card requiring another slot, was the digital i-o.
It was 44/16 in those days, but I did some decent work on that now-primitive system. Anyway, however the card was designed, I could snag internet streaming audio directly to my DAW; I was using an early version of Sound Forge... I didn't have to do any configuring, I would call up a site with streaming audio, open SF, hit record, and it would grab whatever was streaming. I never had to leave the box, or configure it to do that... It just did it. I can't explain why... Maybe because it was a pci card connected directly to the MB? Just guessing. But it was cool to be able to do that. ,
