There is no proper Element in Simulink to include the soundcard of the laptop in real time. In standard Matlab there is the function autiorecorder. I would like to do the same in Simulink. In my special case it is a Realtec soundcard with interior microphone. A USB microphone could be an alternative.

Thak you very much for the answer. Unfortunately our academic license does not include the audio toolbox. I was used to work with audio in the past in a different license environment.

Additionally, this link contains an example of how this block can be used to read audio from a computer's sound card and then write audio to the computer's speakers:
