View Full Version : high-fidelity Audio Recorder
02-27-2006, 02:21 PM
I'm trying to record some streaming audio off the internet. The source is pretty high quality (192 kbs) and I want to preserve the fidelity as much as possible. I know there are tons of recorders out there. Does anybody know of a good tool that will let me record the stream as an MP3 while maintaining the quality as much as possible (hopefully, even the full 192 kbs)?

Adobe Audition would do the trick, but it's not freeware.

Loop Recorder (http://www.looprecorder.de/looprec.php) does it, and you can save it in different formats if the need arises. The regular version is freeware...with some nags I think. You may be able to just use the demo and do what you need and not have to pay the $19 to register it...I don't remember too much about the regular one though (I've got the Pro version).
I use it to record wavs and then convert to whatever mp3 bitrate I need. (It has built in mp3 support but I don't know what kind of options it gives you in terms of bitrate, etc.) Awesome program...check it out. (I've been using it for awhile now and it's especially helpful for recording cell phone ringtones off the "samples" that your provider gives you. :))

Loopology looks like a good light program that'll do just what I need. I'll try it out for now, but Adobe Audition seems like a powerful audio tool that would be worth installing for long-term use. It may replace Audacity, which has been my weapon of choice for mixing/encoding tasks till now.
any more recommendations?

get videolan, its by far the best program for all things audio/video.
