Without having it go outside via speaker system and back into the machine via its microphone? I have a Lenovo ThinkPad (Windows 7) and I can't figure out how to just keep my speakers turned down and have a player from a website transmit the audio signal directly to an application listening for it.

Thanks for any help.

Audacity, an open source sound editing program, supports recording directly from the sound card. Simply select "stereo mixer" (or similar) from the source dropdown in the toolbar, and press record.
