That worked like a charm. Exactly what I needed for this project.
Thanks a bunch,

unfortunately there isn't a setting which you're missing. Recording using
loopback only occurs when audio is being sent to the speakers.
Stereo mix doesn't have this problem, so if Stereo mix is available, that would
be one option.
However, there are ways to get round the problem when using loopback.
Here's one - sounds a little crazy, but works:
1. In Audacity generate a short period of silence, say ten seconds, and export
it in whatever format you want.
2. Then before recording using loopback, open the file containing silence in a
media player, and play it with repeat enabled. This means that audio is now
always being sent to the speakers.
3. Do your loopback recordings.
4. Close the media player.

What I’m wanting to do is record everything that’s coming through the Internet
loopback, including the silence between sounds.
When I record with a microphone it does continue to record even when I’m not
speaking or there’s no sound. I just can’t get the same result when recording
from a loopback.
Is there a setting in preferences somewhere I’m missing?
