I've always ripped vocal audio snippets off youtube via audacity to use in my tracks. However, since upgrading and building my studio, adding a well needed audio interface (Focusrite Scarlett 2i4) I am baffled at how to record internal audio? for some reason I cant get anything to come through? I mean, I can hear the audio from the tube, and ive checked audacity is set to stereo mix (although I fear this may need to change because of the interface) yet I draw a blank every time.

Anyone lend a helping hand on this one?

not sure how to go about fixing that
but you could just use a youtube ripper and cut the sample out from that?

Either YouTube to MP3 converter, failing that I used a patch lead and created a loop using the speaker outputs of my scarlett to the inputs then turned the output off on my record track. That's worked once or twice with a few fuck ups along the way, not ideal but will get you out of trouble.

i had this exact problem when i got my saffire. If i remember correctly, disable the focusrite and enable the realtek or whatever the original you used was, do the recording then swithc back. I seem to remember it being a total ball ache

Yep it's definitely possible. I set the output to be my normal soundcard rather than my Focusrite and the recording to be the stereo mix (what you hear).
