GT3FSExtract.
On every forum online there are people who had success extracting gt4.vol with the gt3 extractor.

In certain situations the lame recording of the music is not a bad solution.
Yes it takes more effort but in terms of quality is the same of ripping them, if you planned to convert VAG to mp3 obviously.

Certainly not! An internal "what you hear" recording records the ANALOGUE output signal directly before the chinch. That's about the same as looping a cable to the mic input and recording it. As far as I know the only possibility to record truly lossless audio is by looping a SPDIF cable from the output to the input. So you'd need an additional sound card with an SPDIF in.

I'm not sure if "what you hear" is the analogue output.
It should be handled just at driver level by forking the raw pcm data meant to be sent to the output.

There is not much documentation about these virtual devices ("What you hear", "Stereo mix" and so on) so let me know if you have some links.

Why not rip the music from YouTube?

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... mode+music

Use Chrome or Firefox and find a plugin that lets you download a YouTube video as an mp3 file.

Well yes, that's the idea behind the concept but "what you hear" is literal in this case - just the raw analogue output. You can check it by recording "silence" and then normalizing the recording. You'll see that there's (analogue) background noise.
I was sceptical some years ago when I downloaded a rip where you could hear that somebody recorded a mono output as stereo. When I did an inversed overlay of the channels, the result was all but silence. ;)
