To Peter #38: Audiograbber can be used to separate wav audio files into separate tracks. I record cassettes into sides A and B files using a Roxio audio recorder. I then use Audiograbber to separate - one can make adjustments as to how much silence is required between tracks in order to properly separate. I think both CNET and PC WORLD have free Audiograbber software. I've used it for a couple decades,I'm sure, and used to use it to record line-in & from the internet. I found it to be very satisfactory & the only reason I use Roxio is because I can better control the volume while recording, as I have a tendency to record too loudly.

I tried to install it on both partitions of a dual-boot 8.1 / 7 machine. It installed without incident on the 8.1 "half", but several attempts to similarly install it on the 7 half failed. One processor was at 100% usage and nothing ever happened. There was no indication of a partial install anywhere in the registry. Curious.

I'm really getting tired of all these "but this program is free" and "I wouldn't pay that much for this" If a person has a legitimate reason for thumbs up or down, post it. I learned long ago not to even pay attention to the "thumbs". I wait several hours read the comments and base my decision to use the offered product from the more intelligent sounding comments.

@ Peter Blaise
I had hundreds of cassettes and I saved them on my hard drive.
I used Audacity, Sound Editor Pro and many other programs. Finally I found "Microsoft Plus- Digital Media Edition". you can record 1/2 hour and it gives you the breaks at the songs. Sometimes it breaks a song into several pieces it it has a long pause in the middle but it is easy to delete the mid-point breaks. Saved me many hours. I am not sure where you can get now but you can always try ebay.

To Larry aka fire5150 and Gary

I do not remember exactly, because it's not showing now, but I think that you are supposed to click a a down-pointing arrow at the top right corner and then click the "register" button. Once there, insert the key and click OK.

#38 - this software has an option to "split the signal after x seconds of silence"

FWIW, installed and registered in Vista 32 with only one hitch - the installer never stopped running, couldn't close it, couldn't minimize it; it just sat there on the screen "installing, please wait...". Task Manager showed "running", not "not responding", but i had to end process from there. Otherwise it seems to work well on my system, no problems with the X-Fi card; good for quick recording, though it won't replace Audition.

@ Peter Blaise

You're really looking to do two steps. You need to record the tape first then break it up. It's the same with LPs.

There are some programs (none free as far as I can tell) that will break up tracks automatically, but you can do it manually using Audacity. And it's not that difficult because you can usually see from where the sound goes silent where the tracks break.

Even if you found something to automatically break up the tracks you still need to name the tracks. If you're working with an LP of 10 tracks, it's often just as easy to do it manually.

I've done a number of cassettes and LPs, and I've found Audacity the best for it. Remember these were created before computers so the software is at a disadvantage. You do have to do some work.

Since this program is only a recorder, it will only record the tape into one file. You then need to further process it.

Yahoo, Bing, Google, and many many more! This one program seems to think that it needs to send my private information to everyone on the web. I have my firewall set to block it all and alert me to the problem (although I got so sick of the alerts that I've muted them for this program). But if you don't use a firewall that can selectively block this kind of outgoing traffic, then I urge you not to install this. See Audacity for a great free program that can do this and a lot more (latest version).

#35: "... there should be some software allowing people to doany real time (not pro level but acceptable one for all) kind of equalizing on any XP or windows 7, 8 platform. I have seen many players (audio or video) do have integrated such equlization into the application, my wondering is, why there is nothing released such that one can use it as, the let us say, stand alone equalizer onto the XP, Win 7, 8? "

I think on playback your filtering, e.g. an equalizer, has to be inserted between reading & decoding the file, & sending the results to the part of Windows that handles sending it to your speakers or headphones. Something that's fairly easy to incorporate in a player, & has been done since WinAmp back in the olden days. :)

For analog input it has to go after the AD converters & before the digital bits get written to file. It's certainly possible, but the code has to be Very fast so you can listen to the results without a lot of delay. Intercepting the digital bits on their way to being written may introduce too much lag, or maybe it's just really difficult, or maybe there's just not been an awful lot of consumer demand so a developer thought it worthwhile? At any rate I've only seen it on more expensive software, particularly apps that interface with external boxes providing mixing &/or buss routing.

For digital audio input I'd *guess* that any sort of filtering is just something they feel you shouldn't be doing. PCs/laptops may have SPIF input [usually optical I think], but that digital stream's usually protected so you can't do anything but play it. It can be the same with digital out. If they added access to use an equalizer then you could just save the digital file as-is & have a copy. They so often restrict what you can record to start with, I'd imagine access to the original digital file would be unthinkable.

If you want a file of something that's already digital, the best way to do it is get a copy of that digital file. Rights holders don't like that of course, so there's DRM. Re-recording audio &/or video can be one way around that DRM, though quality is usually lowered -- I say usually since it's entirely possible to take a poor to mediocre quality original & improve it during playback, whether you're relying on your video hardware to enhance & filter the picture, &/or using a software player's audio filters, &/or using a mic [or mics] to record that audio played through a nice set of speakers. [For audio it's not unlike using mics to record amped speakers in the studio or on stage to capture the altered sound.]

[Note: for recording from speakers in stereo the cheapest solution I'm aware of is to get one of these or similar mics, which may be Sony or may be knock-offs. You'll have to build a very simple circuit to mimic the electronics of the handhelds these mics were designed for, & use stereo line-in rather than the mono mic input jack on your laptop/PC. It only cost me a few dollars in parts, taking < 1/2 an hour to put together including cleanup.

http://suite101.com/a/use-a-battery-box-with-plug-in-power-microphones-a140741 ]
.
With a PC/laptop audio recording is as good [or poor] as your hardware. Whatever you're recording the sound card or on-board sound chip electronics will introduce noise -- how much varies, with higher end products producing [sometimes much] less noise. When you use external hardware connected via USB or firewire you have noise introduced from their electronics, plus noise introduced by the USB or firewire circuits in your PC/laptop, which together can be either more or less than what you get from the internal audio electronics alone. When you record from an external source, i.e. mic or line-in, that external source, e.g. a microphone, determines what it sounds like. If the original signal is analog, then the digital to analog converters that are part of your sound card's or chip's circuitry matter, just as they matter if/when it's time to take the digital ones & zeros in the audio file & convert them back to analog for headphones or speakers -- if you output digital then it's up to the converters at the other end of your [usually] optical cable. Recording software doesn't have a whole lot to do with it, though it may give you the option to do some filtering before the signal's written to disk.

That said, the hardware aspect of audio playback/recording in Windows has always tended to be a bit of a mess... It can be quite the hassle getting drivers working since win 3.1, plus it took audio hardware manufacturers several years before they overcame the changes [no Kernel drivers] Microsoft implemented in Vista. Then came HD video & HDMI, demanding an unbreakable chain of DRM for audio playback -- regardless the hardware you use to playback audio, there's a separate device used just for the HDMI out. That's NOT to say running a HDMI cable from your PC to your HDTV will actually give you audio -- it doesn't always work as so many folks have found out. And of course there's the infamously common practice of disabling recording the signal sent to your speakers, which can be ridiculously easy to fix [by turning on the device in properties] or impossible.

Pros & semi pros tend to use external boxes connected via USB or firewire, but besides tending to be pricey, for the most part they lack niceties we expect, like playing back or outputting Dolby Digital or DTS. Other hardware like sound cards tend to be based on designs that were new when XP was current, so driver problems when they occur can be really big problems to solve. Onboard soundchips, e.g. from Realtek, have gotten better & can be workable, but you're not doing yourself or your recordings any big favors by using them. For now I don't know that there are any ideal [or near ideal], universal solutions like what was available just before Vista was released. I know I looked for months when the old sound cards I'd been nursing along from the XP glory days finally died, eventually settling on the Soundblaster ZX once their ASIO drivers were released. It doesn't do everything I'd want, but it's the closest I can come for the sale price without driver hassles [& I've got external stuff so I don't have to rely on it 100% of the time].

Monitored Leawo Music Recorder installation in my win7 XP Mode VM...

Tried several times, using the GOTD download as well as the download from the link in the registration e-mail from Leawo, and the setup window stalled each time [no activity, couldn't move the window etc.] -- closing that window in Task Mgr. the finished setup window appeared immediately. The setup routine adds C/C++ runtime files from Microsoft -- there is a high priority update for those files available from Microsoft Windows Update once they've been installed. Normally running that sort of installation file package from Microsoft can leave a few leftover files in the Temp folder -- as with every other Leawo app I can remember, those leftovers are left in c:\ [i.e. Root]... don't think or know that that will cause any problems, but it's much more of a drag to clean up vs. emptying the Temp folder, & seems terribly sloppy IMHO.

It would be nice if during setup you were given the option of installing the virtual audio drivers or not. I was surprised to find that each time I tried to install the app there were new driver entries in the registry -- once a driver is installed, installing the same driver on top of it should not normally add more driver registry keys. At any rate it did not inspire confidence -- neither did finding that setup replaced some of Windows media handling files, e.g. ks.sys, stream.sys etc.

That said, I copied the Leawo program folder to another VM, this one running win7 32 bit in VirtualBox, running & registering Music Recorder there without running the setup file, & while I didn't have use of the virtual audio driver, everything seemed fine... registry entries, added files/folders etc. added during first run mirrored those from running setup, only I didn't have the mess from adding the Microsoft C/C++ files, didn't have the [questionable?] drivers, & didn't have Windows media-related files replaced.

I have transferred all my LPs and cassettes to my PC and split them using Audacity. I used the "Analyze/Silence Finder" option as a starting point then deleted all the superfluous finds. Then "File/Export Multiple" to create individual tracks.

I presume it's trying to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable US English Intel x86 IExpress Install, and the window for that is popping underneath the Leawo window, so the computer appears locked up. I searched recent temp files in reverse date order and found it, installed it manually, and then reinstalled Leawo Music Recorder, and it went okay.

Coordinating sound in and out sources and volumes can make me crazy -- why so hard? Because there are so many choices trying to anticipate any possible use of PC sound that a simple "record from here and auto level" is too hard for any programmer to figure out with every frickin' PC being different. I even have multiple Line / Mic In, so how severely "Murphy's Law" can that be? (If you have 2 choices, you'll pick the wrong one!)

Leawo Music Recorder is sort of useful for me -- I have to manually hit the [o] Record button OFF at the end of a track, then hit it again to re-start recording for the next track, so unattended recording is NOT possible, but it much more easily breaks songs into individual files than ANY OTHER RECORDER software (I HATE Audacity).

The problem?

Cassette hiss -- there's no filter or threshold adjustment in Leawo Music Recorder, so the software "thinks" there is still something to record between songs -- even though it's just HISS!

Leawo, please allow us to "record" a blank section of background "noise" and label that "silence or noise" so you can then (a) KNOW when a gap really happens, and (b) even teach your recording software to subtract cassette tape hiss from the background of the recording! That would be WONDERFUL!

BUG: Also, start numbering from [Track1]. Right now, it starts with [Track] for #1, then increments(?) to [Track1] for Track 2, and is ALWAYS behind by one number!

ALL I WANT TO DO IS:

... dub an audio cassette into my PC and have the software AUTOMATICALLY break the recording into separate "songs" at the gaps.

Anybody?

Anybody?

Leawo often does good stuff, even if it depends on other programs (like iTunes must be installed for their excellent and fast DVD ripper to function), but Leawo Music Recorder v1.0 locked up during install on XP Pro SP3, so I will try it elsewhere.

Audacity insists on making a 1-hour recording out of a cassette with 20 songs - doh! And, no, the ability to later break it into pieces is arduous and has never been successful for me, rather preferring to stop and re-start recording manually all the frickin' way through for 20 start / stop iterations.

This is a keeper for me. The first audio recorder in a very long time that can record a live audio stream from a web source, as my Lenovo laptop has no suitable recording drivers. Installed and run on xp sp3 and started recording - it works! 10 thumbs up - seriously I have tried all the audio recorder from the past 12 months and none of them worked. This is the first. It must use a virtual audio recording driver or use some other method.

perhaps, large audience does not know for such equalizers?

I found that it took over my speakers with it's own installation and I had to correct it by going into the audio controls and manually changing it. It's not a major issue, but it could confuse the average user. It should not automatically take control over the audio like that.

#5 zanardi . . . Good real-time equalization requires certain hardware that you may not have. There is no silver bullet solution to this in software.

If you do not have the appropriate hardware, then I'm sure you can find it at the same place you get the free software. After all, the people who make hardware do not work any harder than the people who make software.

#13 and #15 the same:

still no answer on free and real time equlizer independent from such programs (and bugs-what I mean is that few of them can make a lot of bad onto different sound sources), so as the proverb says, patiente is the best virtue, in this case, the question does require quick ansewer, since many people on this site are affected...

I do not know, for the moment, why many here do ignore the issue and problem of the independent real time equalizer and one, that will not do such mess as described by #15? (or by some 3D sound gaming tools).

Hey falks, kindly post your answers for real time equlaizers. Thanks.

For recording online Radio Stations the best and easiest is to use DAR.FM ... You don't even have to have your PC running to record station.

To capture YOUTUBE or GROOVESHARK or MYSPACE streaming music ... use MP3MYMP3 which is free. You can then use AUDACITY free software to "normalize" all your music.

Sorry, but $29.99 is way to much for what you can get free already.

After reading the other comments, I decided to hold off from installing Leawo, I went to the site for Audacity and found out that with their newest release. "(Windows Vista and later) You can now record computer playback by choosing the new Windows WASAPI host in Device Toolbar , then a "loopback" input."
http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/tutorial_recording_computer_playback_on_windows.html has a tutorial on how to set up recording from what the sound card is playing. Hoping I can make it work with my on-board audio.

#13: Apowersoft thing allows you to record only for 3 min.
It is an evaluation not free. I tested the desktop version, maybe the web version is free...

I downloaded this software Leawo Music Recorder Version 1.0 from another giveaway website on 27 July 2013.
Installed, activated and tested it.
Unfortunately this software proved to be very lousy.
It was so bad that I made a note of it in a text file.
So that the next time it was offered as a giveaway in the same website or elsewhere, I can remember and avoid it.
That is how I remember what a piece of junk it was.

@6 JackS

I have found from a previous "Leawo"
installation that a "lost" RealTek audio card (brand name) can result from the installation of "Leawo Music Recorder". It may not be appropriate to put all, or even some of the of the blame for a lost audio device, on Leawo because I experienced the same problem with at least one other audio recording software has caused. The problem of "lost hardware", i.e. RealTek audio card, that Windows 7 can not find has occurred more often than a single instance. I do not remember if the problem was caused by software from different developers or a later version of the same software. What I do remember is that the fix in my case was more involved than your experience. Windows completely lost the "RealTek" sound device and substituted the chip set's on board audio device. I knew that there was a problem and started a diagnostic procedure because all audio was lost. The chipset audio device showed that it was disabled when I checked the "device manager".

While the problem that I encountered was repairable it did take more effort than what you described.

I keep notes on problems and problem solutions. I find that this procedure makes subsequent repairs of similar problems easier and quicker. In this particular case my protocol failed in that I did not document the software(s) that was/were responsible for the audio loss that occurred secondarily to my software instillation. Your advice, while it is excellent and I hope will correct most of your reader's problems, may not be sufficient for everyone that might experience a loss of normal audio performance subsequent to their installation of audio recording software.

Please accept my apology for my poor typing. I only have the use of my right hand and my dictation software has gone 10-7 (out of service).

Win XPSP 3 , installed and registered ok.

Suggest the skin should have mouse over on all the buttons/tabs.

Remember to Click on general tab and then unclick " enable automatic update" otherwise you could lose the free version!

60% THUMBS DOWN ??? Are you kidding me, dudes?

Well, if you are eager to record sound from internal or external devices, this is a GREAT tool.

Perfect solution for those who like to capture an online radio channel while listening to a song.

Can even automatically add song album covers and other song tags like artist and song name, once you have recorded the music sound, as well as export the recorded tracks to iTunes.

So, if you are a Music lover, forget the current misleading GAOTD low rating and enjoy it at its full extent!!

Here is a review by Softpedia editor:
