i haven't tried to do this yet, but i use Audacity quite a bit... i don't think it is possible to record from 2 sources (mic and stereo mix) at the same time...

You probably can with Windows WASAPI loopback recording

if i am not mistaken, the only way to record boths sides of the conversation is using the mic

but this does not give a great recording quality
You probably can with Windows WASAPI loopback recording
this will give you a good quality recording of the incoming call!

Recording Voice Calls on Your Computer Using Audacity
by Nadeem Unuth
Updated November 10, 2017
...
You can also use third-party applications for call recording, but those require some effort and possibly financial engagements. Fortunately, there is this very simple way which implies using a very useful piece of software called Audacity...
How To Record
  1. Open Audacity.
  2. In the top menu, look for the drop-down box whose default value is MME. It is just below the array of control buttons on the left-hand side of the interface. Change this value to capture sound from within the system's input and output. ***In the case of Windows, select WASAPI***.
as i said above, this will record the incoming part of your call

(at the same time)

you have to play the speakers loud enough to record on the mic and your voice is ALSO recorded over the mic


thai is what i have been trying to explain: Speakers & Your Voice are recorded over the Mic

so select Mic in Audacity

I think this is saying speaker phone or loud speaker is preferred.  So if speaker can not be heard then other caller can not be recorded.

my webcam has a built-in mic

when i make a call from Google hangouts, the mic in the webcam picks up MY voice and the speakers play the other person's voice

this is what i record using audacity
