Yes, -ish.  Some sound cards let you select "Mix Out" as a record input,
so you're capturing whatever is being played back.  Quite often the
Windows drivers for cards disables this in case you use it to steal
pennies from record company execs and they can only afford 14.5kg of
cocaine that week instead of their usual 15kg.
