You also have to be using Windows VISTA or later for wasapi to be an available 
option, no matter which version of Audacity you have.

  Hi Justin,
  direct sound isn't the same as wasapi. If the latter isn't available, this 
probably means you're using an old version of Audacity. If you install the 
current version, 2.0.5, you should be able to use it.

  David,
  I don't have a wasapi host option.
  I have mme or windows direct sound.
  If I select windows direct sound and select primary sound capture driver as 
the recording device I get the same noise cancellation effect as if I were 
using stereo mix.
  Is windows direct sound the same as wasapi?

    Hi Justin,
    have you tried using the wasapi host interface in audacity which allows you 
to record using a loopback version of a playback device:
    On the devices page of preferences:
    1. change the interface host to window wasapi.
    2. For the recording device, select one of the loopback versions of the 
playback devices.

    I've had a sighted friend helping me try to defeat beats audio.
    We've managed to turn off everything but the noise cancellation.
    I can make an analog loop and record from the speakers out to the line 
    in, and that works properly.
    It's when I try to use stereo mix that I hear the noise filtering.
    I know this is an audacity forum, But I was hoping that someone besides 
    me had tried sound leech.
    It still seems like a good way to capture the original audio if I can 
    figure out how to navigate it.
