"What's the problem with everyone ?"

November 29, 2014

 |  Version: SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder 1.40

Pros

Best sound quality
I use it to record my spotify (i have premium) songs and then transfer it to my iPod.
All NCH softwares (incl. this) has a very easy to use interface.
Even in trial period it lets you record in 320kbps
Sometimes I record a full spotify playlist (4-5 hr) and then cut the whole record in pieces. I'm using this for more than 1 year now and never encountered a single issue.

Cons

As I told I never encountered a single issue

Summary

Peoples are saying it has trojan but my kaspersky says its a green. !!! I downloaded this software from NCH's official website not from cnet. I have a Intel i5 and 5.1 sound card and windows 7 . Maybe there is a problem with this cnet version..

"bad aftersales service"

January 21, 2014  |  By Soundgrape

 |  Version: SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder 1.40

Pros

When SoundTap works it seems fine.

Cons

I bought the licence (about £18) and registered the product, but this new version of SoundTap doesn't work. So, went to get support from NCH, the software company and only found frustration. Firstly NCH want you to pay for them to respond properly to the customer. I am not paying extra for aftersales service. They have not replied to my messages to them after a reasonable time, and their site seems to make it impossible to apply for a refund. Sadly this kind of avoidance of having to supply support to products purchased seems characteristic of many of these companies, and you get angry and inevitably wonder if this is deliberate, cynical policy. Disheartening - and costly.

Summary

Perhaps this is a good product? Perhaps I shall never know? But for NCH to charge for decent support, after the customer has bought the product, and otherwise not to respond for help, or a refund, is, to put it politely, not good.

"Uninstalling Soundtap corrupts Windows 7 Registry"

December 24, 2013  |  By michaelpeila@hotmail.com

 |  Version: SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder 2.23

Pros

Might work, but there are better solutions out there.

Cons

Uninstalling Soundtap resulted in "midi port in use by another application" error message by two DAWs (Band-in-a-Box 2014, RealBand 2014, MOX VST Editor).

Had to recover by restoring a System Restore point of my stable system.

Summary

Unacceptable management of Windows 7 Registry during uninstall.

It allows choosing the file type before file recording and saves it accordingly. It does not escape a single file.

Cons

Sound quality is not that much good.

"Uses 25% when off"

May 11, 2013  |  By Insurge

 |  Version: SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder 1.40

Pros

Not used, was downloaded incase i ever wanted it.

Cons

It's plagued a lot of unsuspecting people with a process that loads in system on process list.

It makes the system process consume 25% CPU at ALL times even when you've never used it. I fixed this by uninstalling it months after I'd first installed it.

Summary

Usually I would never bother making a comment on these things but I don't want people to get 25% of there CPU ruined by this piece of garbage.

"Won't work with Win 8"

March 03, 2013  |  By jjstewart

 |  Version: SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder 2.23

Pros

Works great under Vista and 7. Records from your COMPUTER, not just ONLINE. Note the difference.

Cons

Win 8 won't let you even install it

Summary

Prior to Win 8, I'm not getting any of the bad things the other comments have said. It recorded exactly what I heard. But I've got a moderate system, not a low-end or ancient one, so sound would be hard for a cheap system to record.
