Audio Capture Overlay
« on: November 17, 2015, 10:46:22 am »
I would LOVE to have a little UI element on the overlay that shows/confirms that audio is being captured.  My headset isn't always plugged in, and when I forget to plug it in BEFORE I launch DxTory, the program doesn't recognize that the default audio device has changed.

So what happens is get complacent, trust that DxTory has my back, and end up recording 3+ hours without any game audio.  It's a damn nightmare.

So please, add just a little thing to the overlay that shows that it is capturing audio.  Maybe a DB level bar that fluctuates with the audio.  Maybe a green light when the inbound is > -60dB.  SOMETHING PLEASE.

I know it's my own damn fault for not being EXTRA SURE that it's correct, but this feature will save me more headaches in the future.

I would like this as well. I sometimes take paranoid test captures just to make sure everything is being captured.

Bumping this topic.  A year and a half later, this is still my most-wanted feature.

Unacceptable.  Software exists to make our lives easier.  Dxtory already gives a myriad of vital information in the form of an overlay, and I'd rate audio input as just as vital as the video input.

This is software that we paid for, and the fact that OBS lets me know at a glance and with confidence that my audio is being recorded while being free only makes me wish more that it was supported.

Hell, I'd even donate MORE money to get this feature fast-tracked.
