As a voice and text chat app, Discord helps gamers talk to each other in real-time with high-quality and low-latency. If you are using Discord, you may have already found that though Discord helps a lot in communication, you cannot record your calls and video with it. But what if you do want to record your Discord calls? Don't worry. I will recommend three convenient applications for you. You can record both audio and video calls on Discord with these recorder applications.
1. FonePaw Screen Recorder
FonePaw Screen Recorder is a professional voice & video recording program that runs on Windows and Mac. It can help you record not only audio but also video calls in Discord.
Besides, it enables you to record both system and microphone sound, which means both your sound and others' in the chatting group can be recorded. Also, there are multiple output audio/video formats and qualities for you to choose from. For example, you can save your Discord calls as MP3, MP4 files.
By the way, you can also set a timer on the FonePaw recorder to automatically start and end recording your Discord calls so that you don't have to worry about forgetting the voice recording.
How to Record Discord Audio & Video with FonePaw

If you want to record just audios in Discord, click Audio Recorder and click the REC button in the next interface.
If you want to record video calls in Discord:
Step 1: Click Video Recorder.
Step 2: Customize your settings, including the format, location, quality to save the recording, whether to include mouse action in your recording and more.

Audacity is a free and open-source audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems. It allows users to record sound and edit sound clips.

Besides, the apparently complicated user interface with plenty of confusing icons and buttons makes this app a little daunting for the first-time user.
