Change logs:

D3DGear added a new feature to record main audio only from the current running game, background audio such as Skype audio, TeamSpeak audio, email notification audio and Youtube music will be excluded and will not be recorded.

Also with this new feature, D3DGear will be able to record TeamSpeak audio into separate audio file if TeamSpeak is currently running. Same as game audio, TeamSpeak audio will be recorded only from TeamSpeak application, it will not include background audio such as game audio.

This is an advanced unique feature that you will not find anywhere else.
