I had this program on another computer from another GAOTD from some time ago. I used it fairly often as it was simple to understand and use for quick recordings. I recommend it.

@posy - it may be as simple as getting a 'downloader' for your internet browser. For the Firefox browser, NetVideoHunter is a good one. It detects what you're watching/listening to and lets you save the lesson as a media file. You then play that back, at will. HTH.

@Giovanni -- One thing to watch out for; Feyrecorder -- I installed it from your link.. the little bugger installed several 'add-on' plugins, including 'Coupon Drop Down'.

This being even AFTER I declined the add-on items, as well as Norton being triggered due to Malware activity by the installation.

I will *not* use any of their products in the future; malware that is intentionally hard to remove speaks of fraud to me.

To #6 Giovanni
You say $30 for this crap. That's a nice balanced review of the software which the developers have offered for nothing.
No word of what makes it crap - just your usual offerings of alternative software.
A poor effort and I would have thought your ego demanded more of yourself.
Or maybe, just maybe, you didn't even test the software to begin with?
Please read Mike's post - #38. That's how it's done.
Thanks Mike. Excellent as usual.

Records files without letting me edit, play or hear them. It is apparently using wrong device parameters without having its own settings

#6, Giovani, #34, Frank D: Frank I agree with you on this product I decided to see if it was as bad as you say so went and got it myself and set about documenting my installation experience and publish it here as an example of a nasty piece of deceptive social engineering trying to make affilate cash on a very basic product that is barely worth hard drive space if it was truely free and a spotlessly clean installer.

You have to select advanced and untick all delta offers, and on popup choice box choose Cancel to avoid installing Delta toolbar homepage and search engine... it's a sneaky way to get them installed even though you deselected them all in prefious installers form, but not completey deceptive as the text is clear in the popup on what happens if you click OK, next page offers AddLyrics browser addon, untick it.. but you cannot continue without clicking Next button which "By clicking Next you are agreeing to the privacy policy and EULA"! I've set a restore point before starting this experiment so should be ok clicking Next (I fully expect it to install the AddLyrics software but NOT enable the user interface) Now a popup to offer Wajam spyware tracking software for your social network accounts... Decline and Agree buttons... the Decline button looks Greyed out to imply you cannot click it using social engineering to guide the end user into clicking Agree to proceed with the original product instalation... lets try the Decline button as I am not easily led ;) Suprise suprise the Decline button works and provides no visual mouse over feedback like the Agree button does... next 3rd party monitization offer something called Search Bar untick all three browsers and again hit the socially engineered inactive looking Decline button... and the orignal install proceeds and it looks like I got hit with nothing extra... but it would have easy to have been fooled if I was not a computer security professional aware of social engineering tricks.
BUT that does not stop adware if the so called free program IS adware! It spawns a popup promo called DiscountInfo.exe in the Audio Recorder Free program files folder. At that point I decided this companys product is a lost cause..

I was going to reverese engineer the URL for the clean installer without all the monitisation and was going to post that here.. but it turns out even that will install an adware trojan executable without our explicit consent!

So I went back to Gilsoft site and re-downloaded the installer executable and on completetion of the download I clicked the report unsafe download to the SmartScreen service and reported it as this site contains malicious software as in my opinion the installers tactics are deliberatly deceptive and it installs and runs with elevated rights at the end of the setup process the target program which then also spawn elevated an unsolicted executable that presents an advert and could do anything else on the host computer unchallenged!

Giovani, you do really need to demonstrate integrity by installing everything you recomend in a virtual PC at least to ensure none are like this Gillsoft abomination. It is in no way worth one of the monitization 3rd party programs let alone the trojan adware process too!
Hope this gives others some pointers to what to look out for in dodgey installers. REMEMBER if in doubt choose cancel or decline even if the button looks deactivated. Worst thing that can happen (assuming the entire setup executable was not a trojan) is the entire process gets canceled meaning you either have to try again with different choices or you just got saved from unsolicited instalations, be relieved :)

I am not technical.
I like simplicity.
I used to use a tape recorder with a few buttons like record, play, rewind and fast forward -- and maybe stop and eject tape.
And even though I have tried to get savvy with complicated software, I am not.
So I like this little recorder.
Do you want to press a button (record), say what you have to say, and then stop?
It is simple with this tool.
And I understand it can do more than that.
But sometimes you don't need more.
Thank you GOTD for making this available.
I do use Audacity as well as Adobe Audition but they are not necessarily easy to use.
I say, try it, you just might like it.

@Crotchety Old Man: Quote: "Clicking 'decline' instead of 'continue' may be the correct option, even though the wording may be designed to make you think “decline” will cancel the installation of the software you want."

Thanks for your helpful comment, but I did exactly what you recommend -- clicked "decline" for every option. But they STILL were installed -- every one of them! I just will not trust these undocumented freebies anymore.

Please, Giovanni, take note before you continue to casually recommend untested freeware. This will tarnish your reputation.

Installed easily, but when I went to register, clicking on "?" in the top right and selecting "Register" from the menu, it just brings me to the product page, same as selecting "Product Page" from that same menu. Clicking "About" from that menu shows a tab labeled "Register", but clicking that just tells me that it's not registered.

So I'm unable to register this package. What else can I do with it?

Well, as soon as it started to run, it shows both meters red at full, with the top few bars flashing, and a message at the top saying "Volume too high!". Well, at present I have no sound going at all. Where is that high volume coming from?

Something appears to be completely amiss here. Looks like I'll remove this program. Frankly, it looks overly simple and not at all useful. For $30. No thanks.

Up to today I used to love your alternate recommendations. HOWEVER, today I tried your GiliSoft Audio Recorder Free recommendation and got burned with at least three drive-by installations EVEN AFTER I carefully deselected all of them during the install procedure. It has taken me over an hour and three reboots of Windows and running Malwarebytes to get rid of these infestations... [Frank D]

The same has occurred to me: for the first time in many years, GiliSoft Audio Recorder has installed 2-3 toolbars on my pc... Luckily I made a Macrium backup before installing new programs, so i solved, but it was a bad advice from Giovanni :-(

#30, mike: you may or may not be aware but some of the more modern variants of the HD serial bus sound chips do not include the internal extra mixer and connections for the stereo-mixer or mono-mixer and switch to the ADC section so even if the driver developers wanted to support the extra facilities they could not without emulating the switchable loop-back in the Ring-0 drivers themselves and as far as I know that has NEVER been done!

Also I do not believe that where the sound-chip supports the functionality in hardware and that it was removed in vista and above drivers is anything to do with lazeyness of the driver developers but that it was part of the design remit by managment to gain support of big media... remember that the developers of windows drivers for comercial hardware are professionals in a highly organised business not joe average hacker in bedroom that codes just how he/she feels like. Maybe preferential sponsored advertising slots or product placements in their movies and or multiplexes. A little quid pro quo!

Discaimer: the above does not pupport to be a statement of fact but a personal belief (consipracy theory) that fits the publicly known facts ;-)

A previous GOTD called "Audo Record Wizard" was the easiest and most trouble-free audio recorder I ever used. But it is just for recording, no altering like today's program apparently has. So if you don't need to "amplify +/-, fade in/out, normalize, insert silence" then maybe better to stick with Audio Record Wizard.

Monitored the trial install in a win7 32 VM, then had the app I use to record changes, InstallWatch Pro, take another Before snapshot, deleted the program folder, installed the GOTD, & took the after snapshot -- the only changes recorded were a couple of uninstall files.

Like a few other audio/video apps, the iRecordMax Sound Recorder relies on several Direct X filters or files from NCT -- basically they're front ends or GUIs for however many NCT code libraries are used [in XP Pro I've got a total of 23 that were installed by various apps]. I haven't ever found anything on the company NCT that was current, though I haven't looked all that hard either -- Brothersoft lists a shareware collection of NCT Active X files here http://www.brothersoft.com/nctaudiostudio-activex-dll-322.html . Apps like today's GOTD likely haven't been updated because without newer versions of those NCT files available -- & AFAIK there aren't any newer versions available -- what's the point? The NCT files themselves aren't bad, though they're not world class either, & while it's certainly possible they'll conflict with some other Direct X files you have installed, I haven't had any problems in my XP Pro install. Any app that installs the NCT files will add several registry entries [iRecordMax Sound Recorder added a couple thousand in my win7 32 VM], but once installed they're shared by any other apps using them, so it's a one time deal. That said, I'm not sure how compatible they are with win7/8 -- that monitored win7 32 install used win7's Virtual Store so there may be some issues -- & iRecordMax Sound Recorder would not run in my XP Mode VM.

As far as the app itself goes, it includes an old copy of Lame that you *might* want to try updating, but otherwise it's a fairly simple & straightforward app that uses your sound card or on-board audio chipset to digitize whatever comes in the inputs & writes the results to an audio file. The simple editor that comes with it isn't bad but neither is it extraordinary -- the biggest fault is it doesn't allow plug-ins, & those tools &/or FX that are built-in are the basics. I have the NCT files installed in XP Pro mainly because I do a little work there using Graph Edit, where I might use the files or filters on their own -- as already mentioned in the comments Audacity & Wavosaur are more powerful, plus I've got some paid software I use. That shouldn't be taken as me telling you not to use iRecordMax Sound Recorder - if you like it, Cool, & it is simpler than Audacity & Wavosaur because there's less there to confuse you.

Also while Audacity & Wavosaur may be the most well known free audio apps, there's a couple of newcomers to the free software market, both by Nero -- Nero SoundTrax & Nero WaveEditor are now free http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads/ . And they're both pretty nice apps.

@ Giovanni; I have always appreciated your input and suggestions as I just don't have the time to do all that research. Today after reading your post the only program I either didn't already have or need was FeyRecorder; I'm always on the lookout for a good free speech engine of any type, so trying FeyRecorder was a no-brainer.

What you failed to mention in your post is how much crapware comes with FeyRecorder. I almost missed it on install, it is cleverly concealed, but I caught it and and did the "Custom Install" and unchecked the boxes for installing "NetScout Toolbar", "Certified Toolbar" which would become my default Search Engine, and "Certified Toodbar" which would change my Home Page.

After I installed FeyRecorder, minus the added crap, I checked running processes to make sure there weren't any unwanted startups, then restarted and that's when WinPatrol, among others, started chirping.

Seems as if FeyRecorder installed two programs they didn't even mention during install. The first was "Complitly" and the other was "CouponDropDown Plugin". I have no idea what either of these are, but they can't be any good if they are installing without my knowledge or permission.

I will say that it wasn't difficult to get rid of either one, but Oh My Goodness I have rarely seen as many registry entries as I did for "CouponDropDown Plugin". I never thought I'd see then end of it.

"Softpedia which will normally mention any added software or crapware mentioned nothing about it, but then they didn't have the correct version listed either; very unusual for "Softpedia".

I haven't tried the functionality of "FeyRecorder" yet, but I did start it to see if it would reinstall the crapware and as far as I can tell it did not. So, I will give "FeyRecorder" a test run later.

The main thing is that I did not have the time to mess with this nonsense today, so pardon me "Giovanni" if I don't say Thank You, this time.

Hi,
I am a non-techy person & don't understand the tech jargon. I listen to classes on the internet & sometimes I wish I could record them because I might have missed something or just want to listen to the class again at a later date.

I just need a basic program that will allow me to record the class. I don't understand all the techy things most of you want to do so I don't know if this is simple enough for me to use.

Can you tell me if it will work for me?

Thanks so much.

@ Frank D

I'm not trying to be a smart aleck, but recently I have encountered some very tricky installers. Sometimes the wording is counter-intuitive. Clicking "decline" instead of "continue" may be the correct option, even though the wording may be designed to make you think "decline" will cancel the installation of the software you want.

Audacity 2.0.3, freeware from Adobe, last updated Jan 2013, records and edits perfectly on Win 7 Pro x64 SP1. Replaces the old CoolEdit series from Syntrillium. I find nothing in the descriptions for this GAOTD that is not covered in full by Audacity, and SourceForge peeps have done a LOT to Audacity since 2008. Pass.

Hello All, well, I feel that I had to comment on this offer today. I've just downloaded this & had a quick play & I can't see why there are so many negative comments & "Thumbs Down". Ok, so Audacity is a free program & it does more. However, today this offer & Audacity happen to be the same price.... FREE!! Granted, iRecord Max doesn't have as many features as Audacity, but that makes things a lot easier for some. If I needed a simple recording device & quickly then this would be a very good option to have knocking about on your laptop or P.C.
@ Giovanni, you do normally have some good advice & alternative options. But today, I feel, you have let yourself down with your opening line. Whilst I do agree that I wouldn't spend $30 on this, today IT IS FREE!! Also, it is NOT CRAP!! It does exactly as it says on the tin. Simply press record, make a noise & press stop... Done! With Audacity it is not THAT simple. Don't get me wrong, I have & use Audacity, but for a SIMPLE & EASY to use recorder this is very good & today IT IS FREE.
Give it a go, it's a nice simple format that is easy to use.
Right then, that's it from me, I've said my piece & I'm happy.
Have Fun, Roadie John :-)

Tried this when same version was given away years ago... uninstalled it because it offered no value over any other product since it only uses the already exposed input pins. Meaning that if you don't have a stereo-mixer or wav-out input pin you will NOT be able to record any streaming sounds or ANY output from ANY program with this program. that makes it just as bad(restricted) as audacity on modern laptops and HD chipsets that have been designed to exclude the old stereo-mixer inputs.

There have been products offered here in the past that allow recording from both the input pins AND all the output pins on a given sound-chip, not relying on hardware or pseduo-soundcard drivers and special Tee-program functions, but hooking software subsystem and exposing all the streams happening in either direction! This program simply does not cut it. I thought Giovani was a little harsh with his first sentence but after re-installing this to remind myself... yup it's not fit for purpose in the modern world and needs to be re-written to cope with modern computer configurations and limitations imposed to keep DRM advocates happy. To prevrent me from wasting my time further down the line if this version is offered again in another few years when I may have forgotten the specifics as this is not in any way memorable, I'm adding a note to the raeadme.txt file stating that this only supports hardware input pins and it's not worth installing on vista and above that don't already have all the input pins I need.

#23: "Audacity is a first-rate program... however, I do not see how to record from both the microphone and streaming audio at the same time as this one does."

Maybe I'm misunderstanding?...
AFAIK the number of tracks recorded from separate inputs is a hardware limitation, as in your average soundcard or on-board chipset may give you 1-3 choices [mic, line-in, speaker mix], & you may or may not be able to use a combo of those inputs at the same time, but you can only record one stereo track pair at a time. Higher end gear [often external USB or firewire] with the right software will let you record multiple tracks at once, or having multiple soundcards used to be a somewhat common solution, where each card could write its own stereo file.

Recording multiple inputs to a single track should always be possible as far as hardware is concerned -- if/when it's not an option blame the audio hardware's drivers... It takes extra work on the part of the driver development team, so the company may not have bothered, or as is often the case nowadays, they left out things like the speaker mix input as a means of DRM.

If you've got one of the common on-board Realtek HD audio chipsets & are running win7, using the generic drivers from Realtek's site, you *may* be able to open win7's Recording dialog or window, select Stereo Mix, click Properties, & simply select Use this device (enabled) from the drop down. Setting that Stereo Mix as your default input, whatever you manage to get playing on your speakers will be recorded to a stereo audio file. If enabling Stereo Mix isn't an option, doesn't work for you, Google on your hardware for a work-a-round, consider a generic [perhaps fake] driver, &/or consider a loopback arrangement jumpering your output input jacks.

In your example you'd probably want to use headphones to prevent feedback, but as long as your mic's working & you can hear the audio playing you [hopefully] should be able to record both to a single stereo file with pretty much any audio recording software.

A number of comments state that Audacity has all the features of today's programme, a shame they haven't tried today's program before they made such statements.

Please before making such statements check out the program on offer.
Audacity is a first-rate program and one I use frequently, however, I do not see how to record from both the microphone and streaming audio at the same time as this one does.

You do not like the price? Today it is free so who cares about that.
Are there others that are free? OK. Are they beta testing on this site today? No. So it really is not about them. Guess I will quit reading this section and just make up my own mind.

@ what's the difference between the GOTD and the free sound recorder that is being offered below the feedback?

One difference is that the "free" sound recorder also installs the program CoolCandy that can be read about in the licence agreement text that has to be accepted to be able to install the "free" sound recorder.
"A. Software License B. OpenCandy End User License Agreement (EULA)

Hello and greetings from Sweetzerland in Europa.
Have tested many softwares for audio, and to my point of view the best ratio price|efficiency is Mixcraft from acoustica.com ; not free, but not "too expensive". Does a bit what Cubase does (Cubase is $$$).
Tried Audacity too, but ... well... I prefer Mixcraft!
Havaniceday!

I agree, this is a good tool for the first timers, looking to get it done easy, but once you come up against the limitations you will be wanting something with power and fairly soon. This program will not grow with you. If you want something that will do this and much much more, look into Audacity. I used this program here when I started my podcast, but once I needed to do a lot of audio effect and sound editing and so I have used Audacity ever since.

I don't seem to be able to register this program. The "register" link leads to the website . . . anyone else have this issue?

Installed on Win 8 64 bit. I get an error on startup and when I try to "Adjust settings and Options" which tells me that "'03-Jun-13' is not a valid date." LOL Recording seems very quiet but I can't adjust the settings as explained.... Not sure if I'll be able to make use of this one.

Each time the program starts I get an error dialog box that pops up before the program even opens. It says "Index out of range". This is typically a basic programmer error wherein the start up code has not properly initialized something or reset some array to zero. I have several audio programs. Most audio programs cannot avoid recording cracks and pops after a minute or two of steady recording. Experts say that the reason is a buffer size that is too small. However, this sends users on an endless search for a resolution to a problem that is not a systems problem, but a software application problem. Case in point: both Audacity and Sony SoundForge will record unwanted pops and cracks. However, Sony Acid Music pn the same system records cleanly with not a single sound blip of unwanted noise. If this little sound recorder can record cleanly then it is worth grabbing.! However, I have not tried it yet.

According to their website:"iRecordMax is also the first choice for adding audio effects like amplify, compressor, delay, equalize, fade in and fade out, flanger, invert, normalize, phaser, reverb, reverse, silence, stretch, vibrato, etc." This is simply not true as Audacity has done this for years. The price is way to high and I can't trust a company that lies.
