Sorry pal, I am not familiar with Vista (I only know that Vista users have several headaches on multiple fronts so you might be unable to use a resource editor on your OS... It might have to do with UAC. Are you running Resource Hacker under Admin credentials?).

If you post here your email address I can send you the modified .exe file... I'll be checking here again in a couple of days to see your reply.

Good news for all those who could not view the entire program interface (computer set to a higher resolution = cropped control buttons/GUI).

This is the solution (follow it carefully and you'll be done in less than 3 minutes... It might sound more difficult than it really is):

1) If you don't have it already, download this freeware (Resource Hacker Beta... Even if it is a beta it is VERY stable don't worry) http://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/File-Editors/Resource-Hacker.shtml

2) Once you have launched Resource Hacker (make sure that All Sound Recorder Vista is not running) drag and drop the "asrv.exe" file (note its size in KB somewhere) onto Resource Hacker GUI

3) On the left side of the (Resource Hacker) panel you will see all the resources. Look for "24" (it is the last one at the bottom) and expand it (by a single-click on the "+")

4) Inside you will see "1". Expand that too.

5) Inside you will see "2052". Right-click on "2052" (make sure that only "2052" is selected) and click "Delete resource" (confirm with "YES" at the prompt).

6) Now (in Resource Hacker's toolbar) click on "File" and then on "Save"

7) Close Resource Hacker and go to All Sound Recorder Vista installation directory where (if you followed correctly this procedure) you should see the modified "asrv.exe" file (this is the correct one that you should use, it should be 1 KB smaller than the "asrv_original.exe" file, which is the original file's backup.)

8) Check if all works fine (in my case it does, otherwise I would have not posted the solution here) and delete the "asrv_original.exe" file.

NOTE (to some of you who did not know Resource Hacker): Use Resource Hacker with caution -you really need to know what you are doing- or you might cripple applications and render them inoperable... In any case Resource Hacker will always keep the "_original.exe" as a backup when you save your final executable after the (eventual) modification(s).

Hope you found this useful.


PS: Many thanks to Mike (post # 61) for having pointed me in the right direction to solve my problem (not the one described above).

I wasn't expecting much but this is a really nice application, especially for Vista and higher users. There are some problems with the Help file. As noted in the description at the top of the page and by #64,65, TK, this uses the Loopback functionality of Vista and higher. #56, mike, you missed that major feature. On Vista and higher, there's no need to select your Stereo Mix or equivalent, All Sound Recorder will indicate whether the current playback device is a loopback device, so you generally don't need to change your playback device. Lots of nice features, spectrum analyzer and dual-channel amplitude indication, seekable player (via mouseclick).

Downloaded just fine on Win7 Ultimate 64 bit computers as other mentioned # 27, #65, #67 has mentioned thas poorly framed interface as only displays partial (1/3) of the skin size.

You u cannot view the entire program interface if you have personalized your computer to a higher resolution in my case 1600 x 1200 and higher. !!! The control buttons are cropped, what prevents from proper setting and using it.

So program became totally useless ... !

Seems to install OK, then when you try to start the program you get an error saying "cannot start default recording device" followed by the fatal error, "Exception EAccessViolation at address 004073E0 in module 'asrv.exe'. Read of address 69502CE8."

Seems like a promising software be fails on my Widows Vista 32 bit with all current updates so I will uninstall.

It appears that an army of commentators have descended here today and are writing a ton of cloned comments. GOTD should require registration and proof of individual installation of the application before allowing anyone to vote or post comments here.

I've noticed that the regular commentators are absent today. I guess that either their comments are blocked, or they are staying away from an obvious fraud on the part of today's "vendor."

The program records excellent sound. How do you change the file name on the recording. So far, all I get is Rectest 1, RecTest 2 etc. How can you change the name to something like Bentley Tape One.

I have a desktop PC running Vista 32/64 OS. I downloaded the ASRV and installed it with no problems. But I don't find the steromix option in the sound recording tab. Only high definition microphone and in-line. there are no other disabled devices. It appears that ASRV will not work on my system.

Bad News - Good News. Bad first: This little Beauty won't work on my old clapped-out Lappy with WinXP SP2, darn:( Started making positive moves, but came up with an error, tried to start Task Scheduler Service, as that seemed to be a prob, but the Service was "not recognized", so didn't start. That happened twice in a row, but - 3rd time lucky and Good News: - asked me to register (my own name and code)and is running:)) Just shows you. Don't give up at the first hurdle..!! So many People do. And for those who feel "inferior" to others having top-notch latest sophisticated Models (I don't and don't envy folks anything, perhaps clever brains:) - Most, and I mean Most Programs DO work fine on shabbiest machines! I cannot even start Windows (BSOD), so worked out how to run "the show" on 8 Services,(no updates, but running SpyBot regularly - have to:), standby button, and having only 5GB of free mem on C: - All my GAOTDs go to FreeAgent big usb Drive (I have a folder for downloads and sub-folder for GAOTD Programs) -- Everything runs fine from THERE! Not C:Programs. Does it mean it's all Portable?? Looks to me it might be. Does it go to Win Registry? God knows, I couldn't care less. Hope All Sound Recorder serves me as fine as my Corels, Adobes a.s.o. If graphics and clever Games can without crashing - Sounds will too, when I have a bash:) Evening All. Thanks GAOTD for today's great giveaway.

I believe someone else has mentioned that you cannot view the entire program interface if you have personalized your computer to a larger view size. As a senior I need the 125% mode to clearly see all of the print. You must first change view to 100% to see the entire interface and most important the control buttons. I think the developers need to think about fixing this as it will limit the amount of folks who might regularly use it.

My first try did not come out very well. I think it was due to the default settings. The app can be set for much better quality than the default settings.

Also I had to turn my volume control down or the sound would be distorted from the levels being too high. After lowering my volume under the computer's control panel, I don't get the distortion.

It does not seem to save your settings.

Downloaded program but when I click on 'Setup.Exe' I get a box stating 'This process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process'. Then I get a 'successfully activated' notice with a registration key but the program never loads on my computer and I don't see anyway of doing so at this point. I also went to the program's homepage listed at the top of the listing and downloaded the program using the 'Free download' button there and it installed on my computer but would not accept the registration code provided by GOTD so it obviously is not what is being offered FREE today. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

GOTD you really scored with this one. For those of us who were wondering what happened to "stereo mix" in Windoz7, these guys put a link right up front in the upper right hand corner--"not find stereo mix?". The resulting help pop takes you by the hand to enable and make it default. Saved me 30 bucks on a new sound card.
Sorry this post is so far down the page. This is big news. Thanks

#36, mike... this uses a HD audio compatible software loopback feature so no fancy tricks or patch jack leads or extra soundcards are required on DRM crippled OEM HD audio chips. No unreliable hoops to jump through just select the OUTPUT you wish to record and the software loop-back is enabled and used to get the digital data.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  12 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

This is like an enhanced HD audio recorder that was offered sometime last year I believe, that was simple, too the point and functional for recording the output of Vista and above HD audio outputs without the need for special soundmixer or WAV input pins. Also means no unstable pseudo device drivers to get hold of the data stream since it's all done using the HD audio API. Those of us that have OEM neutered HD audio chips and drivers these work well, this program allows selection of a different sample rate than the output devices configured sample rate while HD audio recorder did not and this offers some DSP effects too. This program uses a "loopback" interface to record from an HD audio output on Vista and above. If you missed HD Audio recorder back in December 2009 then this should more than make up for it!

Alright, here is where I have a problem with this: It records DIRECTLY to file?...no no no...I want to be able to clean up the recording (remove mistakes, start multiple times if I have to ...etc etc).
Record directly to file, then erase said file due to errors...or erase multiple files due to false starts....and after recording (finally) 2 or 3 songs, defrag the drive because I just made a whole lot of files and had to delete them again....what?
Uh-yea-no....I would have kept trying this if the problem with audacity not allowing stereo mix on some cards was not duplicated with this program....thanks though.
Sorry GAOTD, thanks for the program offering, but I really don`t need another program writing files to My drive without My interim control.

Installed properly on a Dell Win 7 laptop, but not on a Toshiba Win 7 laptop. The lower portion of the window was not shown, so none of the buttons were available. I removed it and retried in XP compatibility mode and had the same issue. Works well on the other laptop.

#22: "Every time I run (on XP Pro SP3) All Sound Recorder Vista I get the “No Codec on this settings” popup… If I set the “Output Format” to MP3 then I close the program and reopen it, the format goes back to WAV…"

If it helps, XP could have mp3 problems, AFAIK mainly because there were several versions of l3codecp.acm that could be installed to Windows\ System32, & different registry settings. There were unlimited versions of that codec file as well as limited versions with not all format settings available. Windows Media player used it, then one version uninstalled it from the registry... it could be a mess. Google/Bing for info to see if that's it, & for all the various info & fixes, including replacements to see what's best for you or what fix you'd be most comfortable with.

As for the save audio as format, it does hold onto the last set for me in 7, but in the XP Mode VM I had problems with it reading the files in My Documents\ ASRV, & that's where the configuration is stored. I assumed it was because I was using a VM [Virtual Machine}, but maybe not... if the last set format is showing as stored in asrv.ini but doesn't work, maybe contact the developer? [I know support is not included, but I'm assuming with PCs using ~1/2 XP, ~1/2 win7 (according to stats I've seen), I'd assume they'd want to fix that.]

* * *

#41: "I’ve got a firewire audio interface that uses ASIO drivers and it’s not able to record anything."

That sounds like a nicer setup, perhaps beyond what ASRV is designed for. [FWIW firewire is better than USB because circuits are quieter when it comes to electrical interference, & ASIO is low latency so you can monitor in some circumstances better]. You might get things working with ASRV if you enabled whatever audio chip/hardware came with your PC/laptop -- I'd think it should co-exist with your firewire interface just fine, but as always backup 1st.

* * *

#55: "output mp3 is nothing but high pitched feedback and the song is buried behind the squealing."

Feedback is what happens if the mic picks up the speaker output, the speakers output what the mic *hears*, & the mic picks up that output, cycling over & over again. Some mics & circuitry prevent it, many don't -- that's why headsets are much more popular than desktop mics, since a headset mic can't hear the speakers.

Installed & registered easy on Vista. Played with it awhile, if it had sound meter level indicators would be nice. Seems a bit too basic for me - uninstalled.
I looked around for better ones and trying out *Audacity* and *ExpStudio*
which are ALWAYS FREE! They look more worthwhile and can even EDIT.

Tried it out. I do books on tape, for my own enjoyment works well, like the pause when recording if it goes silent, saves me from having to edit later when I read though the book. Also great if you're having multiple people do the readings, you can switch the headset mic and not have a huge gap in the recording or have to stop and start. Haven't tried recording from the internet or anything but all in all its a pretty good product for what I use it for.

All Sound Recorder Vista [ASRV] is a nice, small, simple, audio recording app. The biggest downside for some will be that it doesn't display properly when Windows is set to use large fonts, e.g. Control Panel -> Display -> Medium in win7... set to Medium everything below the output format dropdown is gone. Otherwise it has several handy features & is tailored to users who want/need an easy to use, general purpose recording app. While it's missing editing & more advanced recording features, you also don't get the steeper/higher learning curve &/or more complicated interface. Those handy features include an automatic gain control, silence detection, automatic file splitting, & dynamic compression. The loop back features OTOH are nothing special, & in fact with my Creative soundcard I found it more a nuisance -- every time I started ASRV it selected the default speakers for input, rather than remembering the last set "What U Hear" that's used by Creative. It's a plus in that ASRV doesn't change Windows set default recording device, but remembering the device you selected from the drop down of available sources would be nice, maybe even expected. Using ASRV is pretty much intuitive, though don't put 100% of your faith in the recording levels displayed -- peaks may not last long enough to be obvious or show up so you'd notice, & I found testing it that in one case actual peaks were ~10 db higher than the highest value shown during recording. You also may want to glance at the included help file RE: what they call DAR -- their silence detection -- rather than just checking the box to turn it on.

Automatic gain control manages volume levels for you -- you want to record with the highest volume possible because increasing the volume later on also makes any noise louder too [you can always reduce volume later]. But if you set the input volume too high you'll get clipping -- what happens is that anything over a certain level gets cut off... if you look at the waveform in an editor it looks like someone took a knife & cut off the peaks, causing distortion. If you're recording live with a more pro app &/or gear you'll set the input levels before you record & during recording [e.g. using those big mixing boards in a recording studio], but when you're recording something you can't easily run through 1st, do over, or if you simply don't want to bother, automatic gain control can be very nice. Detecting silence means you don't have to record *nothing* between, before, or after songs, & can be used to split your recording session into separate files. Dynamic compression reduces the difference between loud & soft -- movies & music can have a large dynamic range, which is nice when you can crank up the volume enough to hear the very quiet parts without losing your hearing (or lease) because of the loudest portions. OTOH its a destructive process that doesn't always come out right 1st try, so if you're after top quality you may want to apply dynamic compression after you've recorded the file rather than during -- it's up to you.

ASRV itself is heavily based on the bass code [un4seen.com] that's used in many games, & it also includes codecs like lame.exe & flac.exe... many of these files are not the latest versions, so if you have any problems [or just want the latest] running/using ASRV you *might * want to try updating those manually [though save all files before replacement so you can put stuff back if needed]. The other day the subject of packed program files came up -- ASRV's bass code files are packed, but not the rest of the program, & I don't know if some AV software will object to that or not. Running ASRV for the 1st time in win7 I got a nag screen window to register, but in the XP Mode VM I did not, & I get an error message [invalid floating point op.] every time it starts [found BTW that right-clicking inside the app, the context menu includes Register]... it appears that for some reason ASRV isn't finding/reading the file with the registration key or number as registration is always blank every time it starts up. I don't know why or if anyone else will have the same problem outside a VM. ASRV does use D3D. Installing ASRV adds an uninstall key to the registry, you get an ASRV folder for configuration data under [My] Documents, & the program's folder itself holding 29 files, 1 folder, ~6 MB. For anyone very tight on disk space or planning to use this from a USB stick, the portableapps.com App Compactor did work to reduce the total size by about 1/2, though I'd suggest a Lot of testing since the developer chose to only compact [pack] part of the program's files.

There are frankly an awful lot of apps available that will record audio, the difference being the GUI & any extra features they have -- ASRV didn't do any better than Sound Forge Pro, but maybe more importantly, Sound Forge Pro didn't do any better than ASRV... Sound Forge Pro is a full-on audio editor, but if all you need is simple recording, why pay the $300+ asking price shown by Google Shopping? With it's light weight install & decent performance there's no reason not to use ASRV if you like it, e.g. the GUI. Audacity is an Audio Editor alternative that's confusing to read about because so many users either love or hate it with relatively few in between -- if you don't mind not having an automatically created Start Menu &/or desktop shortcut, there's a portable version with an installer at portableapps.com that you can try & delete if you want, without uninstall worries or hassles http://goo.gl/nTNwQ . Audio hardware often has it's own apps that might give you some advantages -- Creative for instance lets you record 5.1. Unless a recording app comes with it's own drivers, re-recording playing media rather than mic/line-in just means selecting the right recording source in Windows, depending of course on if your audio drivers let you. Often as not might as well use your favorite player, adjust the EQ, add whatever FX, & IOW make it sound good now rather than in editing. That said, realize that whatever you use to listen or monitor your playing audio may not let you hear it as it really is, e.g. if your headphones themselves add a lot of bass, don't be surprised if you find out your recording has hardly any -- many, many of the popular headphones, ear buds or regular types go heavy on the bass &/or treble, which may be fine for listening, just not so great for setting EQ. Most PC speakers will be *off* too -- even on sale small, better speakers (monitors) aren't cheap http://goo.gl/9XgG .

When I record from YouTube the output mp3 is nothing but high pitched feedback and the song is buried behind the squealing. How do I fix this, I have Stereo Mix enabled as my Default Device and the program didn’t seem to want to work when I Disabled my built in microphones on my laptop. It’s a Win 7 Pro 64 Bit system.

I've used Audacity in the past to record streaming audio from youtube, but I find Audacity's controls confusing. Today, I tried All Sound Recorder Vista (using W7-64bit), and found it's controls much more intuitive. For stream recording, this is a great solution. Unfortunately, All Sound Recorder will also create an unplayable file if you make a couple of simple mistakes as I did in my first attempt. Overall, the ease of use out weighs this problem, and I'll be keeping this program.

Give it a try!

First, this program automatically detected and configured my Realtek sound chip so I just had to hit "Record" to start recording. I can't tell you how many so-called sound recorders are unable to do this properly. For that alone this program deserves praise.

I did notice an odd problem using DAR mode. This allows you to either pause, stop, or stop the current recording track and start a new track once it detects silence. My issue is with the latter. While it seems to work well (tested it on classical pieces with lots of silent parts) I noticed it would record a track of space in between. As an example:

1. Track #1
2. Couple seconds of silence
3. Track #2
4. Couple seconds of silence
5. Track #3

If the author could fix this issue, it would be an excellent all-around sound recorder. Even with this issue it's better than most.

I have downloaded 6 recording programs in the last 10 days trying to capture quality sound from streaming radio but all I got was a toy-like sound from my laptop speakers. I didn't know what was wrong but the HELP link:"Not find Stereo Mix" solved my problem AND this little gem has none of the gazillion complicated "features" of the other options. Simple; clean; efficient! I love it!

Oh, and to #34, Franca Lingua: This isn't Buckingham Palace. It's an international sharing site. Comment on the software or shut your gob!

Of course I forgot to tell you that you can do that using a FREE sound recording such as AUDACITY....


But honestly at present I don't know what's better among the two ones...

What do you make of it, dudes?

First of all, I simply do not know anything about audio other than if you have a CD, DVD, tape you stick it in and hit the play button. :) But, I downloaded this just to see what it was. I am so glad I did. Download, registration went without a hitch. The Editor I also downloaded. If it helps any, at the time of registration (on the registration dialog box) there is a button at the top for the Editor click it first then go on to register. I downloaded a melody from the internet and forgot to use the Wizard :( and it was at Normal. Not to fear, it came out beautiful. So simple in appearance; good help instructions. No problem with language. Look forward to trying my hand at the Editor and think it will help me learn something in audio. Tried other programs and just plain got frustrated. This one seems to take the edge off learning. Thanks alot GAOTD and mp3do for the opportunity to learn. This a keeper. Have a great day everyone.

Great TOOL!!

On their HELP FILE they say that this GEM can even record Music to MP3,WMA,OGG,etc files directly from a CASSETTE TAPE, PORTABLE PLAYER and/or from an LP, by connecting the "Line Out" jack of your AUDIO DEVICE to the "Line In" jack of your SOUND CARD.

Did anyone try to do that??

Would someone please explain what "loopback recording" is and how to implement it in this program.

Fail for me. Installs fine on WinXP SP3, but sees only 2 of 4 hardware sound sources on the system, and only offers one recording source option: Record from Microphone. Audacity sees all of the sources, and can record Stereo Mix from my Realtek sound hardware.

I've used "Total Recorder" for 15 years. I don't think this one will surpass it so I'll stick with what I have. Thanks anyway. http://www.totalrecorder.com/

#39 and Others - Here is the link for the free “Sound Editor”.

NOTE: Many download links on the mp3do-com site are missing the ".com" extension on the www.idoodownload part of the links


"CD Ripper Free" and "Free MP3 Converter" are gievaways, and have user names and registration codes listed on their download pages (Click on "Giveaway" to see the codes...)
