Editor's review

Captures audio from any source, including line-in, microphone, or sounds that are played back on the computer by other applications. Recording can be in any sound format such as MP3 or OGG.

Pros: Pistonsoft Audio Recorder enables recording directly into the target format, be it MP3 or OGG. One need not fiddle with intermediate conversions and then compressing etc. whether recording from the internet radio streams or podcasts. Audio source can be line in, microphone or the CD player.

If the recording parameters are known, set them directly and record in the format of choice. Bit rate, bit depth and the sampling rate can be specified and compression required defined directly and the audio recorded in the exact final format required.

Recording can be scheduled so that recording starts at predefined time, even when unattended. Voice activation helps to save storage space as recording happens only when there is audio activity. Pauses and silences are also removed.

Filters available make the recording as clean as possible. Voices are thus intelligible easily. Automatic level control also helps in this regards by normalizing the inputs in real time by turning up low voices while attenuating loud inputs.

The user interface is really nice. Ability to choose the color scheme makes it even nicer. The whole thing is designed to look like a car stereo system. The recording parameters of bit rate, source, stereo/mono modes etc are displayed directly. For choosing the settings, scheduling a recording etc appropriate screens open that has the fields for parameter settings.

Cons: Help documentation could have been more detailed.

Overall this is a nice application for recording audio directly into appropriate format. The program gets a 4 star rating.

It Records beautifully but it `aint free. There are no user instructions and no haelp line or customer support and after parting with my money I have no more features than I did with the trial version because it crashes when I try to use certain features. Sure when it crashes a report screen appears which does a screen shot of the problem and asks you to submit it. But do you get a Reply? No ******* Way! I`ve tried all methods of contacting this company bar phoning (I`aint footing the bill to the States). They`ve got my money and I`ve got a recorder I can`t fully use. Thanks Pissed on Soft.
