Can anyone recommend any free software which will record internet HD radio streams to a wav file?

Audio Hijack works for me. It's free - slightly easier to use if you pay.

Hi Bonzo
Been through this myself lately. The problem began with Vista and continued with Windows 7 when Microsoft decided in their wisdom that people were recording audio from the Internet instead of buying it - as if any self-respecting Mudcatter would do such a thing!

Prior to Vista pretty well any recording programme would record "What you hear" then - zilch! Progs show "Mic" as the only device available!

I sought advice on Mudcat and go lots. Some folks assured me that certain programmes would work but when I tried them, sadly, nothing.

After sampling lots of Freeware from the very complicated to the very simple, including some which worked for a few weeks then mysteriously ceased functioning after some "Essential Upgrades" from our friends at Microsoft, I'm currently using Sound Tap http://www.nch.com.au/soundtap/index.html Blue clicky doesn't seem to be working!

This is a very small and simple programme which does exactly what I'm looking for. I use an elderly version of CoolEdit (now superceded by Audition) for editing.

Lets see how long this lasts for.

Good Luck

Eddie

When I try freeware, it always seems that, when I remove it, it takes something extra with it. Like a .dll file.
I'm still on XP, and I use 'LP Recorder' which seems to record everything you want it to. The free versions of LPR sometimes waver a bit, though.

Try - "davee" dot com.



Simple - easy - free - not elegant.

Mix your files after down load before burning CD.

Audacity does the job for me, and you can download loads of addons coded in NyQuist.

But beware that when you try and record something you aren't picking up sound from an in-built mic.

In XP and Win 7 you need to use 'Stereo Mix' as the input, this means that you are capturing sound direct from the sound card.

In XP 'Stereo Mix' should already be configured.

In Vista / Win7 it is not, and you have to configure it first. I forget how I did it, but Google search for 'stereo mix' and you'll find loads of solutions.

But one of many websites:

I had the same problems as Eddie1. Using Windows 7 all recording from the internet appeared impossible.

I have now tried the NCH Soundtap program he mentioned and it does appear to work.

I have now discovered that a freeware programme called VLC will record streams to file. I'm not quite sure how I got there, and for some reason I can no longer hear sound in VLC - but that perhaps is another problem!

I've tried to use VLC - but couldn't get it to record. The Audacity app. is a great one though for recording audio, and you can easily see the waveform and edit it and save it in numerous ways. Also the NCH suite of audio/video apps. is great, but they do tend to nag you to purchase after the free trial runs out!!

I'd not heard of this particular Windows thing but if it gets more of a problem, perhaps Linux could offer an alternative solution. Again, Audacity would be fine for recording.

I still use Audacity. There's an option in preferences so you can still record from sound output.

I'm using Audacity version 1.3.13 and can't find that option. Is it in an older version?

I keep all installation files on hard drive, for ease of reinstallation, but frequently find some have been deleted. It helps to change the names!

High Criteria's Total Recorder does the job.

There are also things like Radio Downloader which download straight to mp3 (can be converted to .wav if that's the format you need),
and have the additional convenience of allowing you to "subscribe" to a series of a programme (can be extremely useful!)

Good luck.

VLC works fine on my work PC, but not so well on my home PC which for some reason does not have Stereo Mix on the recording mixer, and yet it has the same Realtek sound card. There seems to be no way of enabling Stereo mix, and last night I could not get sound into Adobe Audition, and then it came back for no apparent reason.

I discovered that KM Player (free) will also save internet radio streams to file, and in particular wav, in order to capture the Radio 3 stream at 320kbps without introducing any further lossyness, which is currently as good as it gets

"...but not so well on my home PC which for some reason does not have Stereo Mix on the recording mixer, and yet it has the same Realtek sound card."

What operating system do you have? In XP Stereo Mix should already be configured. For Win 7 you have to do it yourself. Its not a feature of the sound card per se. Google "Stereo Mix Windows 7" or something like that and there'll be loads of pages about this.

re using audacity, if you have a Realtek soundcard its only possible if you're literate enough to be able to edit the drivers, which I'm not. Back to the drawing board.
