Software Description

To use the program just type in "jack_capture"
in the terminal without any extra command line options:

$ jack_capture

The program will then start recording what you hear in your speakers into a stereo wav file.


  • The 4GB size barrier for wav files is handled by continuing writing to new files when reaching 4GB.
  • Autogenerated filenames are unique and humanly readable.
  • Supports mp3 by using liblame.
  • Supports all soundfile formats supported by sndfile. (wav, aiff, ogg, flac, wavex, au, etc.)
  • jack_capture can connect to any input or output jack port.
