    me sirvió bastante ya empecé a grabar solo que todo lo quiero guardar en un USB pero guardando directo no lo realiza bien …tiene que ser directo al CPU y después pasarlo al USB tenia varios discos LP y CASSETTE al grabar en USB ya puedo producir en los aparatos modernos…no se si puedan mejorarlo para hacer la gradación directa al USB probado en PC y NOTEBOOK .

      Yeah, super lilttle recorder. Well thought out, have seen some absolutely crappy tools out there, and this is uncluttered, efficient and easy to use. I’m trialling this for quick demos and musical snippets in my home studio as I jam around. A few suggestions:

      1. Would be good to select the wave/MP3 bitrate and resolution, and maybe stereo/mono. Both MP3 and WAV output appear to be standard 44KHz, which is fine for most needs. The MP3 bitrate is 120 kbps, whereas 320kbps is what I use these days. However, the WAV is fine for my needs.

      2. Good to be able to specify a filename format. However, luckily, yours is one of the few programs that output the filename in yy-mm-dd hh-mm-ss format, which is exactly what I use for quick recording. Also, once you’ve created the file and it’s in the window, would be nice to just do the old click on the filename to rename it, rather than remembering to into Win explorer to do it later.

      3. The good old space bar as a toggle on/off for recording would be ace, or even a function key or something, rather than fumbling with the mouse and looking for the Record Now button when I want to go to “record” mode quickly.

      4. Ok, I’m pushing it here, but when you hit record, it would be good if something flashed or turned red or something. You do get the nice wave file image scroll once you’ve started playing, but 5 minutes later I get distracted by something and stop playing, and don’t realise the record mode is still on. You could also add a nice big display of the hh/mm/ss that the recording has been going for.

        Thanks a lot, really very useful ideas on the improvement. I will try to fit into my schedule and work out a new version.

    Almost perfect. Only thing that would make it perfect is if it had an option to automatically start recording as soon as audio is played through the sound card. Great program though.

    This is a Awesome Recorder. I am recording my cassette tapes to Digital so I can take it with me. Nice simple and easy to use. I am going to share this program with my friends.

    Since I record streaming radio it would be useful a pause button.
    Anyway this is the best piece of software for recording audio streaming. Thanks a lot.
