"Can't believe it's free!"

July 20, 2010  |  By hodgespatri

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 8.2.1

Pros

I started using this when I found out it can record audio from mic as long a i want (unlike windows built in recorder). Then it cleaned up the audio nicely, so I never had to look for better software.

Cons

Nothing bad to say

"Might work well with XP"

July 09, 2010  |  By shcoxfl

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 8.2.1

Pros

Looks easy to use.

Cons

Not sound card friendly after in Vista or Windows 7

Summary

This looks like it might be a nice recorder but it relies on the "Record What You Here" or "Stereo Mix" feature of the sound card which a lot of lower cost sound cards don't offer in Vista and Windows 7. Also it does not break the recording into tracks.

"The best sound recorder I have used"

July 02, 2010  |  By Tyndall1589

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 8.2.1

Pros

Easy to learn and use. I've used several other free recorder over the years and this is the best.

Cons

It would be great if you guys can add a converter or something like that as i need need other audio formats like mp2 and flac.

Summary

I've been using the recorder for months. So far the free one does all I need.

"Works Good!"

June 26, 2010  |  By joerog55

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 8.2.1

Pros

Very easy to figure out. Did not need a tutorial to get it to work. Recorded an audio stream using the software and PCs sound card to get a good quality MP3 file.

Cons

Took several tries to get the amplitude right. It kept over-modulating until I found just the right volume setting, which was a trial and error process.

Summary

easy to figure out and use. Does what it was intended for. Stable, small footprint program, easy to install.

"Spyware discreetly included!"

June 21, 2010  |  By nikshguot

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 8.2.1

Pros

No Pros. Just lies and trickery.

Cons

1. Found spyware and junk attached mysteriously when I installed this program.

2. Very hard to work out how to record streaming audio on the Internet. Description on the website is not clear, such as quote: "or something like".

Summary

I would not recommend this program. LuckyThirteen has summerised it pretty well. I found the spyware, autocomplete.pro installed which I was never informed unless I read the terms and conditions CAREFULLY. They trick you into installing this piece of usesless spyware junk. I tried to un install it in the control panel with minimal results. It said: "Some parts can not be removed, only manaully." Well Its going to be hard to find each single bit that the program installed on my computer.

"Absolute best audio recorder that I ever tried!!!"

June 11, 2010  |  By Princeofwars

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 8.2.1

Pros

Spectacular quality, fast, simple enough, records to mp3, wav, and wma, great interface, quick start up, comes with an audio editor that expires in 30 days, free of charge, and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Cons

In order for it to work properly, you most follow all directions in the trouble shooter and see the recording tutorials if you are still confused. It's worth it in the end to have gone through the trouble.

Summary

Out of five audio recorders tried, this one has the best quality and is the most simplist to use by far. If anyone needs help trying to get it to work, please ask me.
