Want to record Discord audio or calls on your computer?

You may want to record Discord Audio when enjoying on Discord but don't know how to make it. Don't worry. In this article, we will teach you two ways to record Discord audio with high quality. The first method is to use extensions to capture Discord audio and calls and the second one is to use screen recorders such as TuneFab Screen Recorder to record Discord audios easily. Curious about how to make it? Let's have a look at how it works!


1. Capture Discord Audio by using Soundflower Extension (Mac only)

As you may know, the built-in recorder on your computer cannot directly capture sound playing in the software. Thus, if you are on Mac, you can use an extension called Soundflower to capture audio or calls from Discord. To do that:

Step 1. Get Soundflower on your Mac

Download and install Soundflower on your Mac. When it is fully downloaded, you can see there are Soundflower on your Audio Device.

Step 2. Set Soundflower as Sound Output Device in System Preferences

Go to your Mac, open System Preference and Sound. Under the Output tab, you will see Soundflower is now available on the list, select Soundflower (2ch) for sound output device. Now any sound that comes out from your Mac's speaker will be sent through Soundflower.

Step 3. Select Input and Output Device in Discord

Open Discord, hit the Gear icon to open Setting, then select Voice and Video. Under Input Device, select "default". Under Output device, select Soundflower (2ch). Save changes before you exit.

Step 4. Record Audio Through Soundflowers

Now you can use Mac built-in recorder such as QuickTime Player to record sound from Discord through Soundflowers.

You can record calls and audios from Discord by using Soundflower. However, since Soundflower is just available on Mac, you may need to find an equivalent for Windows. Alternatively, we recommend you to use TuneFab Screen Recorder, which consists of simple but powerful audio recorders in capturing Discord audios and calls on both Mac and Windows system.
