How to record audio from a sound card?

Hi, How to record audio as it passes through a sound card?

I remember seeing a review in Make magazine about a program that can record the data that goes through a sound card and then play it back later through the same sound card. I'm not using this for music piracy, but it would be good if someone could tell me the name of that program and where I could download it?

Thank you for your assistance.

Audacity.

Not sure exactly what you're trying to record, but there are thousands of programs that can record audio and video, including ones that come with windows. What specifically are you trying to record? Maybe we can give you directions.

I use Total Recorder for this--not Audacity. It's very simple and works every time.
