It would be great if there was a DB Meter for the System Audio, not just mic. Audio.

I'm constantly having issues where I can hear what's being presented on skype, webex, zoom, etc. but because these tools have their own audio interface, you think it's being processed as system Audio and recording, but it's not. It would be great if there were a meter that allowed you to monitor system audio to make sure it's recording.

The only work around now is to record for 30 seconds, stop, make sure it recorded volume and then restart recording (or adjust the presentation app settings until it does.)

I have not found any other way to confirm that it's recording system audio and just because you can hear it doesn't mean it's recording as the audio settings in the applications can be set in a way that it's not passing the audio to Camtasia via system audio.

Some positive indication system audio is actually being recorded would be welcome. An actual level meter would be awesome.
