FMOD for Windows doesn’t support generic WASAPI loopback recording.

Some soundcards may have their own loopback recording device, check the list of recording devices and look for one named “Stereo mix”, “Wave”, “Wave Out Mix”, or “What You Hear”. You may need to open up Windows control panel and enable this device.

Use the FMOD functions System::getRecordNumDrivers(), and then for each driver call System::getRecordDriverInfo() to get the name. Once you have found a loopback recording device call System::recordStart().
