How to record internal audio with FL Studio (Focusrite Saffire used in this example)

this is a firewalk production. This tutorial will show you how to record system audio in FL Studio. For example, this could be audio from youtube, ,and internet radio stream, or whatever you’d like to sample. First of all, make sure that you’re using an a ASIO driver that doesn’t take full control of your sound card, or you won’t be able to record. The FL Studio ASIO driver will usually work fine, but in this example I’ll be using my Saffire pro ASIO driver. So let’s get started. Open the mixer, select a channel, and then load edison as an effect in the upper right mixer corner. You can select the input sources. I’ll select this one. This will vary slightly from system to system. If you’re unsure, just try them all until you find one that works. I’ll lower the volume a bit so that we don’t clip. Now, let’s try to record something. I’ve chosen one of my own tracks from my youtube channel, so let’s press play and see if we can record the audio in FL Studio. You can see here the sound is now coming through. Open Edison and press record. As you can see, it is now recording audio. Just click the stop button when you’re done. I’ll stop the original youtube playback as well, so we can check how it turned out. That sounds fine. We can now click on the floppy disk icon to save this as a WAV file, or we can click here to send it directly to the playlist. That’s it, you’re done. Note that the method shown here is a general way of doing this. The exact procedure will vary slightly from system to system, depending on what sound card you have, and what third-party control software you may be using for that sound card. You may have to set up the correct output first if you’re using such software. For example, I’m using a sapphire pro external soundcard myself. I had to go into its mix control software and select the loopback preset in order to record the system audio. I then reenabled the outputs here, so that I could actually hear the source through my monitors. If you have different control software, you will need to read the manual on how to set it up. If you’re using your internal sound card, then this will usually not be necessary. Is there any specific tutorial you’d like me to make? Or perhaps you have a question? Just leave me a comment below!
