Editors' Review

+

Nexus Radio is a free music software application that lets users download music and discover streaming radio stations from around the world. It also doubles as a media player, and recording tool that can record in-line audio from your computer, or from the radio streams to which you're listening. In addition, the app plays fetch--create a filter and it will capture songs or artists according to your keyword choice. That spells "free music discovery" to us

.

Like competing music jukebox software, Nexus Radio has its own plug-in architecture that allows third parties to create their own add-ons. One of the most popular applications of that has been visualizations, which users are able to add or remove from the player. The app also offers drag-and-drop functionality for creating your own playlists from music stored on your hard drive, and there are built-in tools for saving clips as MP3s and editing clips.

Nexus Radio has an attractive interface that offers plenty of functionality without being overly complex. The main screen has built-in volume control, menu options, and a dropdown for on-the-fly burning. Stations are listed alphabetically, but other than the name, there's really no additional information, so you'll have to hunt and peck to find the stations you like. It's best to add stations as favorites for easier access with further use. The app isn't the most polished we've seen, but it offers a simple way to save songs and create playlists of tracks heard on Internet radio.

"Great for most online radio users"

May 22, 2010  |  By HarleyHerbert

 |  Version: Nexus Radio 5.0

Pros

Wide range of preset stations, good sound quality, recording features, on demand music search, looks good, great visuals, easy to use, automatic MP3 tagger, and best of all, a voice when you first open the program that says "Welcome To Nexus Radio"

Cons

Sometimes it cannot play some stations and songs at times. It also does'nt allow you to search for specific radio stations by their URL, so you have to settle with the preset stations.

Summary

It's great for listening to different types of radio station, thanks to its preset station search, which has thousands of stations arranged in different genres. This makes it good to find radio stations that you like, but have never heard of before, especially if it's from another country.
Another good function it has is the recording of live radio broadcasts. All you have to do is press record, and it records it all in MP3 format. It automatically tags the songs for you, and the tagging is really good. The sound quality of the recorded MP3s is better than other programs of its type, and unlike most other online radio recorders, it seperates the songs, instead of recording it into one big file.
It has a trimmer to trim audio files into pieces, which can be useful, especially if you've used another radio recorder which records the songs into huge long files.

As well as this, it also has a filtering system, so it only records artists or songs you want to record, if you activate it, which can prevent your hard disk being cluttered with recorded songs that you don't want.
Free plugins and visuals are available to download off the website, so you can always get more components for the program if you want to customise it.

Nexus radio also allows you to listen to audio files off your hard disk, and supports many various file formats, meaning if you have nexus radio you don't need to download a seperate media player to listen to your audio files.
Another great feature is its on demand music. If you can't find a station that's playing something you want to hear, type in the song or artist you want to hear, and it gives you a list of songs for you to listen to. All you have to do then is click on the song you want to liten to, and that's it.
It also allows you to download these songs too, so you don't have to keep seaching for the songs, and so you can listen to them whenever you want.
The visuals available for when listening to stuff look really good. Good enough to rival those of other media players, and more are available to download for free.


Overall, Nexus radio is great for anyone who wants to listen to online radio easily and without hassle. If you want an eay to use, hassle free, safe to use, doesn't use much hard disk space, and free radio station, Nexus Radio is probably the best for you.

"wouldn't recommended for everyone"

May 21, 2010  |  By Mechsicles

 |  Version: Nexus Radio 5.0

Pros

Can get many music for free, and it records radio, each song at a time. Does it automatically the name and everything.

Cons

Since this is pretty much a torrent based product it has a lot of trojans and viruses. If you decide to use this, make sure you scan your computer once a day.
