SoundWire is pretty useful if you feel like listen to your music from your computer anywhere in your house or out on your deck. With this audio mirroring app, you can turn your mobile phone into a remote speaker, wireless headphone or bluetooth speaker. In addition to streaming live audio and sound from PC to Android phones, this little tool has gotten in on the sound recording too.
SoundWire Server is the program on PC needed to make the SoundWire app for Android work properly. Download and install it on your PC, launch the SoundWire Server on your Windows computer, you can see the ‘Record to File‘ section with two buttons, Record and Stop, on the right side. Go to play the music or audio you want to record, could they be any music player on your PC or laptop, like YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, VLC player, or online movies, web videos, internet radio, live internet broadcasts, streaming music, any sound played on your computer. You’ll then see the SoundWire Server detects the audio stream, and its sound bar indicates the sound level. Click Record button, choose a location, file name, audio format, then start recording the system audio or streaming music on your computer. When you’re done, hit the Stop button to finish and save the recorded audio to your computer in either WAV or MP3 as you specified.

Record sound from microphone
SoundWire can only capture audio stream from the internet, your computer sound card, not your microphone. If you like to record voice through Mic, you can follow the steps to record audio in Windows 10 using the stock audio recorder for Windows. Unlike the SoundWire, this windows inbuilt tool captures only sound from Microphone.
