Why do you want that function?

I only ask because when you say, I guarantee I'll show you a better way to do what you want and tell you why too.

That's a different thing than I thought you were going to say. So ya, you'll need a record-what-you-hear or stereo mix settings. In recording devices, right click and enable disconnected and also disabled devices. See if something shows up.

I don't know which offhand because I forget the names, but there are apps that can capture the stream straight to HDD instead.

There are some here.

I don't understand what you mean by the term "spin." Perhaps clarify a little, please?
