"Baffling and annoying."

October 02, 2012  |  By badwebmaster

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.1

Pros

I don't know - it's never completed a recording.

Cons

I tried to record a four minute stream of a song. It showed it was recording for the full time, but the final recording was only one minute fifteen. It has done this several times and I can't find anything in the help file or on line that's any help with this.

Summary

I installed it specifically for webstreaming. For free software, it's cost me lots of frustration and it's paid back every penny I spent on it.

"Returns error when starting program"

April 26, 2011  |  By mr7yh

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.1

Pros

unknown, because it did not work

Cons

The program does not work on my 6 month old standard windows 7 computer with AVGfree antivirus2011. I tried 2x install. Returns always with error code. Tech Support contact is not possible for this free program.

Summary

It is quite unclear why it does not work. I installed the program in custom mode: (no change on homepage and search engine preference). When I want to start the program, it returns immediately with an error: <exception EACMAuddioInError in module Freesoundrecorder.exe at 000857D2. Error openingaudio device for input. Bad device ID.> Nice explanation, but nowhere FAQ how to deal with it. No tech contact possible.
First ever problem that I have with installing a program... The extra toolbar consumes vertical screen space; could have been better integrated with others. Everybody tries to push you into a new toolbar with new homepage and new search engine...This is getting quite ennoying.

"The Best Ground Water"

April 22, 2011  |  By DjBobby1

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.1

Pros

Everything Then

Cons

Nothing Then

Summary

Although I havnt gotten the latest version, assuming it works as good as the older one that I have......then this is good because then.......

1 - Does not change the sound quality (unless you want it to)

2 - You can make it louder. Some songs ok sound quality and you can make it better.

3 - Really easy to use

4 - Records right when you press, stops right when you press

5 - Has a number on the area where you make it louder, so you know where the bar is

6 - Can convert to Mp3 (or other formats)

7 - You dont need YouTube downloader when you can just record witht his

8 - You can pause when your recording and continue when you want, which is great for people who want to edit out stuff, and for Dj's who want to edit out parts in songs, or for Dj's whow want to re-arange parts in songs. . . .

9 - There is nothing with this

10 - If you have a problem with this, it could be the settings on this software, or a compatiablity issue with your computer, so in other words, this software is good, and if it is not good it oculd be something else then here then here .. ....

"No sound on playback!"

March 15, 2011  |  By kevintheelder

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.1

Pros

It has great ratings from everyone else.

Cons

MP3 were recorded by had no sound when I played them normally.

Summary

I'm almost hesitant to give such a poor rating, because I'm not that great with computers and this software seemed to get high marks from everyone. Maybe I'm just used to simple-simple, as I use something called freecorder4 that only requires that I hit the record button and the stop and that's it. In using this, without too much difficulty I was able to record three songs from youtube, creating three MP3 files, but there is no sound on them when they play back. When I wasn't successful at finding out what might be the solution. I uninstalled it after an hour or so of frustration.

"Bad, bad and bad"

March 12, 2011  |  By nowinus2010

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.1

Pros

Simple to install and use.

Cons

Volume too high flickers. I tried decreasing speaker volume, won't work. I tried changing record mixer from line in to stereo, still won't work. Records all giberish. This is total crap.

Summary

Stay away, this is bad cheap software. Look for something different.

"Great for tape/vinyl - works with Windows 7 (64 bit)"

March 11, 2011  |  By KIKI556

 |  Version: Free Sound Recorder 9.2.1

Pros

Easy to use, you can play back in the same window or select other files unlike LP Recorder (which I paid for)

Cons

Haven't found any yet!

Summary

After upgrading to Win 7, none of my previous bought versions of LP Recorder etc. would work. This does exactly the same, but is free and less antiquated. I am using a USB plug Xitel INport.
