Hi guys.

Looking to record a demonstration video inside of my DAW. Will require audio directly from the DAW into the video. Finding a screen capture camera is the easy part, but can't seem to figure out how to record the audio while using ASIO4ALL as the primary driver. Is it possible in windows?

Thanks.

Most used solution for this scenario is to insert a WAV Recorder plugin in the master bus of your DAW (you can use any audio interface then, including Asio4All) and merge/sync the audio to video later.

Appreciate the suggestion. That will likely be what'll have to happen then.

On my Windows 7 system it's no problem to run the DAW (Reaper) with waveout. Of course latency is bit higher compared to ASIO but I can run other audio apps/players/recorders/youtube in parallel.

How about using a Screen-Capture Software like Camtasia.
To record Audio you can use the Stereomix option...or am I wrong?

Cheers

Liking what I'm seeing so far. Might be exactly what I need. Thanks!

Latency shouldn't be a problem. Unless it's abnormally noticeable. Will look more into this. Thank you!

Yeah, it needs to work with ASIO. However, Camtasia looks awesome. Thanks for recommending that.

Camtasia worka fine with ASIO4All for that.

On another note, why not just use the Windows audio driver with any screen capture app? Just set your Windows screen cap app to record from "Stereo Mix" inout in your Windows sound card. Unless you need multiple inputs and outputs there's no real need for an ASIO driver for that kinda thing.

I'll give it a go with Camtasia then if it works with ASIO. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion. However, I do need the ASIO driver for the demonstration video as the synth I'm using for it eats up a lot of CPU. Simply can't use my windows soundcard. That alone makes the CPU meter hit 98% + when using the synth. ASIO4ALL solves this problem just enough to make it usable.

Search for "O Deus Asio Link Pro". It's a mixer that routes audio from windows sound devices to the ASIO4ALL driver and can route it out back into a windows audio device. You can route all of your audio any way you please and since you can set it up to output audio into a windows device - you can set your screen capture to listen to that device.

P.S It's not free, but it has a demo mode where it cuts out audio for about 5 seconds regularly (every few minutes). It's affordable though. I've tried numerous tools, but this is THE best that I've found.

Recording the audio in your DAW and adding it to the video later is often a matter of a couple of seconds. You can do this easily in Windows Movie Maker, if you have nothing else to edit videos with.

My tip to help you align the audio correctly is to include a couple of sounds with sharp attack that you play at the beginning of the video. As long as you have a visual representation of when the sound occurs (e.g. dB meter in your DAW), it's easy to align the audio well enough with little effort. You can then simply cut the hits from your video and audio when everything is aligned.

If you are going to be doing multiple takes, it starts becoming more work of course, as you need to align each take.

Camtasia is great, but only free for the 30-day trial period. If you want to keep using it after that, it's not exactly cheap.

Try the paid version ($15/yr) of Screencast-o-matic. Does what you want.

I use jack audio router and VB audio ASIO bridge. Works well and you still have low latency.

Anything new on this?

Except that DAW+ASIO4All+Win10.
