How does "desktop audio capture" work?


Windows

Desktop Audio Capture uses the Windows audio API called WASAPI. Simply put, as long as applications on your PC are outputting to WASAPI you should be able to capture them with MiniMeters.

Limitations

Use of ASIO drivers stops MiniMeters from capturing audio of that particular application. MiniMetersServer (included with MiniMeters) allows you to route your audio from your DAW or host to MiniMeters circumventing this.

Linux

Linux audio has many options for "loopback" style audio output capture. In my tests on Ubuntu I had no issues simply using Pulse Audio's "Monitor of X interface" feature.
