    The single computer license is too restrictive.

    "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.

    Version: SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder 2.23

    Pros

    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.
