Editors' review

NowSmart Studio's Audio Record Wizard makes it easy to record sounds on your PC from a microphone, a file, or anything you can plug into your sound card, like a tape deck or TV. It's great for recording chat sessions because it can record sounds from two sources, such as a microphone and Internet feed, and save it all as one file in a range of formats (MP3, OGG, WAV, and FLAC). It can convert and merge audio files, manage MP3 tags, and perform other audio editing duties. Many of its tools are particularly suited to voice recording, such as Voice Activation, File Length Limitation, and Noise Suppression. Audio Record Wizard Version 6.98 is free to try with a two-minute recording limit.

Audio Record Wizard's user interface closely resembles a media player in layout, style, and size. It's a logical design since the program also plays back the recordings it makes. The familiar layout and controls made it easier to learn this tool's ins and outs. By ins, we mean inputs, i.e. Source, which the program lists in a drop-down menu at the top of the window, just above the File display and Level controls. By outs, we mean output directory, file type, and so on, as well as the media player controls in the bottom panel. But there's no need to guess since Audio Record Wizard opens with a Step-by-Step Guide displayed in the main window.

We clicked "Source" and selected our video card's output. We played a video and clicked "Record." Audio Record Wizard started recording the sound feed as an MP3, which played back normally. Next we tried the Line In and Microphone feeds--also successfully. Stereo Mix recorded audio from our motherboard's audio driver, but Audio Record Wizard also recognized all seven inputs on our external Firewire sound card, including analog (Line In) and digital (S/PDIF) sources. But the feature we wanted to try was NowSmart Audio's Computer Sound & Voice input, so we clicked "How to Use" in the Source menu, which opened a Web-based tutorial, entitled "How to record online conversations." Again the results were great. We suggest you try this nifty tool, yourself.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Audio Record Wizard 6.98.

    "I could not get the try it program to work"

    June 20, 2012   |   By irv1945

    Version: Audio Record Wizard 6.5

    Pros

    Good Question

    Cons

    Could not try it before purchasing so I gave up. Perhaps the try it program work but it did not work for me.

    Summary

    If you want to purchase before trying this might be a good choice. I want to try it first. And I could not get the try it program to work.

    "Well worth the $24.99 I paid for it."

    May 07, 2012   |   By mekagylvx

    Version: Audio Record Wizard 6.5

    Pros

    Does exactly what it claims,
    Easy to use,
    Records whatever is playing on your computer speakers regardless of where it is coming from ie., Windoze Media Player, Browser, even system sounds (be careful while recording music - I advise turning off system sounds in the mixer before recording),
    Did I say easy to use, and straightforward?
    Not cluttered with a lot of needless settings,
    Just does the job.
    When I purchased online with a credit card, the email with my license code to unlock the full features (record more than 3 minutes of audio) came promptly, and registering my copies of the program was easy.

    Cons

    I wish there were a way to stop one recording and start another seemlessly with ONE mouse click. As it is, it can be done in two.

    Summary

    Worth the price - does what it claims without a lot of fuss. Good program for those who do not have a lot of windows experience, or my fellow "minimalists".

    "Fantastic bit of software"

    February 09, 2012   |   By Recycle15

    Version: Audio Record Wizard 5.5

    Pros

    I'm a frequent user of Pro Tools in my work, but have always required a program to lodge itself between my soundcard and outputs before the digital to analog conversion and this appears to do precisely that. I've used other programs before and none have had any stability whatsoever. Audio Record Wizard on the other hand goes beyond what you would expect without flooding the user with unnecessary additions. It is a simple audio recorder; any features offered are there to aid the user in their recording and have obviously been developed from use and experience. This also rings true in the settings window where every attribute of your mp3, ogg or wav can be set to your needs (including a choice of VBR, ABR or CBR mp3) and all features can be easily configured. It even has a brilliantly executed file name system. It seems to work with Windows 7 seamlessly, incorporating all audio inputs detected in windows.

    Cons

    Absolutely none.

    Summary

    This software is not just aimed at those who want to digitalise their LPs or record an extract from a radio station - it more than satisfies the further advanced audiophiles with a simple, easy to use and inviting interface with every configuration you could want.
    For a few dollars (or pounds in my case), it's a great deal too.
