Am using Zorin 16 and trying to record some audio. I want to record what the sound card is playing. But everything is very faint.
When I looked at Settings --> Sound, I only see "Microphone - Built-In Audio" as a selectable input source. I can force the input volume way up for the Mic source by using the Settings --> Sound input volume control, but that generates a lot of background noise, and is a clunky work-around.
This mic-only input limit is present whether I use the Settings --> Sound control, the built-in Sound Recorder app, or Audacity (a sound editor). Looks like the OS is only recognizing the Mic.
Is there a way to enable other input sources to be recognized by the OS (in addition to the Mic)?
PS - arecord -l yields:
