How to Record Discord Audio with OBS
The most popular way to record Discord audio on your PC using Open Broadcaster Software (OBS). OBS Studio is a prominent video streaming software for gaming and other material, freely accessible for use on Mac, Linux, and Windows.
OBS is also capable of recording video and audio, including your desktop display, as well as your microphone. You may utilize this same function to record an audio portion of a Discord group (together with microphone input), enabling you to save the conversation.
Recording audio through OBS requires you first to download and install the program and acquire an open source license.
Once you’ve acquired and installed OBS Studio, open it up and select the ‘Sources’ button on the lower left part of your screen. You’ll see many options here, including YouTube videos, capture cards, and live audio sources.
This is where you want to select ‘Audio Input Capture.’
Next, from this menu, you’ll need to set which audio source you’re utilizing in Discord, along with any relevant settings.
Select the ‘Desktop Audio’ option and set your levels accordingly if you’re utilizing a desktop microphone or other input. If you’re utilizing an audio cable to connect your Discord group to your PC, select the ‘Line In’ option and set those levels as well.
You can preview your input by selecting the ‘Preview Stream’ option.
Once you’re satisfied with the audio levels, hit ‘Okay’ to return to the main OBS screen. You can add this as a new source for your stream by going to the bottom of the page, selecting ‘+,’ next to where it says ‘Sources.’
From here, select your newly added Audio Input Capture and hit ‘Start Recording.’
Now, when you start your stream, you’ll also be recording the audio from your Discord group. This can be extremely helpful for later reference or for sharing with others.
If you’re not a server owner or moderator and would like to share an audio clip from a Discord discussion, this is the best way to do it. By recording the conversation as it happens, you can ensure that the audio quality is good and that no important information is missed.
This process can also be useful for archiving purposes or saving a discussion that you found particularly interesting.
