6.Us­ing a ded­i­cated sys­tem au­dio rip­per

1 If your au­dio in­ter­face doesn’t of­fer in­ter­nal loop­back rout­ing, and you don’t fancy rig­ging up loads of un­wieldy ca­bles from your speaker out­put to an au­dio in­put, in­stead use a ded­i­cated piece of soft­ware to in­ter­cept your sys­tem’s in­ter­nal au­dio and ex­port it to a file for use later on – let’s try it out.

2 We’ll use Rogue Amoeba’s Au­dio Hi­jack for this (demos avail­able). Open it and se­lect New Ses­sion»New Blank Ses­sion from the Ses­sion Tem­plate menu. Start build­ing a sig­nal path by adding an Ap­pli­ca­tion from Sources, then set­ting the Source to your DAW. Add a Recorder from Out­puts.

3 By de­fault, the Recorder grabs au­dio in 256kbps MP3 for­mat; click­ing the Recorder opens a di­a­log box where we can change this to high qual­ity 24-bit WAV. To mon­i­tor au­dio while record­ing, add an Out­put De­vice from Out­puts, set to your cho­sen au­dio in­ter­face. Grab the record­ing from the Record­ing tab.
