    "Great product for simple recording tasks."

    April 8, 2012  |   By GOPSly1


    This product downloaded quickly and worked immediately with no glitches. I had previously used Freecorder (see my Freecorder review) and decided to try Free Sound Recorder. This product downloads to most popular formats as selected by the user. My employer had blocked streaming so I needed a reliable recorder to capture Internet radio audio to play back later at work. The Free Sound Recorder has a "Schedule" feature that enables users to target a block of time for recording. This feature was ideal for me and has worked perfectly to record my morning, noon, and afternoon online radio shows. I log on to my radio station website, click "Listen Now" and Free Sound Recorder automatically captures the audio later while I am gone. I simply download the MP3 file to my flash drive each evening and it is ready for playback anytime!


    The only drawback I could find is that the recorder crams everything into one file. I typically record one 8-hour file each day so locating specific content is nearly impossible. It would be ideal for my recording needs to have incremental selectivity for extended periods of recording time. This is possibly a unique feature to suit my preferences that the typical user would not require.


    Although I did not use the voice recording feature, I would recommend this program as an adequate, simplistic approach to audio recording.
