Anyone know of a version history for this program as it was given away on this site Feb 22 2019 as 2.0.1 and this is 2.0.2 but can't find any details of what's new or fixed or broken in the new version.

Amazon prime music says it won't support IE, would need to install chrome to use today's offering with amazon stream.

BobbyA, what about firefox or edge? I'd find it odd that Amazon was forcing subscribers to use a Google sourced browser!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

TK, Thank you for the reply. I normally listened to amazon streaming using FF. I hadn't originally discovered how to add FF to this program, and tried the IE icon they already had. After adding FF I tried again, after reopening FF (why does the program first close the browser). Must have made the wrong choice when presented with the choice of: Do you want to close browser when started ? Cancel or OK. Clear as mud. But it's fatal flaws are, can't tell if it is recording, neither it nor I can find any recordings after songs are played. I think there are enough good alternative choices that I don't have to feel bad about removing this one.

BobbyA, I guess it depends upon how the browser is configured but the way this program works is by hooking into the spawned programs audio framework and extracting the audio stream and if that spawned program is configured to only launch one instance then lauunching a second instance via this program as a launcher could well result in prior exporer launched program being terminated by the new instance... possibly... whn you launch a program to be recorded by this giveaway a recording window is opened that overlays the main window and is often left underneath the spawned programs window. If you start the spawned program playing sound AND this program has managed to hook into the audio framework to siphon off a copy of the audio an entry will apear in the underlying recordings window with a small animation reprisenting the audio being captured and an incrementing counter as the stream is captured. If nothing apears in that underlying recordings window then the program has not managed to hook into the audio framework being used either due to DRM or use of an incompatible combination of windows APIs.

So if you can't tell it's recording in the recordings window that gets spawned under the program being launched window and on top of the this ones initial window then it's not recording ... sorry!

"NB: 3-year license"

Top notch offer from the developers. *thumbs up*

Neil Veganhead, how so? They don't sell any license of any duration other than non-expiring lifetime. So this is NOT a license we could otherwise buy... it's not even a fresh 3 year expiring license as it's the same license code previously issued Feb 22 2019 and it was supposedly a 3 yeaar license then ... so it can't be 3 years now... as more than 6 months of that 3 years have already passed!

OK, good comments so I will try on the basis of a 3 year license.

Morgan Pierce, personally I'd prefer the giveaway was for a license duration they actually sell and not a made up trial license just for the giveaway even if it's supposedly 3 years... or 3 years minus 5 months as it is the same 3 year license code issued in Feburary earlier this year and not a new 3 year code just for this giveaway.

Unlike some other audio recording software, TunesKit Audio Capture does not grab the audio headed for your speakers or headphones. That means that it can work when the audio drivers are crippled for DRM – when speaker input isn’t available as a Windows recording device. In that case recording whatever’s playing often means installing a generic fake driver. It also means less flexibility – you tell the app which software you want to use to play the audio, it launches that app, then waits for the audio to play so that it can start recording. When you record speaker input OTOH [using other software], you might get more creative, using filters, equalizers & such that change the audio you hear.

As noted in the comments, TunesKit Audio Capture doesn’t record hardware audio inputs either, which of course means you can’t record directly from a mic. You *might* be able to use any app that plays the mic [or line-in] input however, and use TunesKit Audio Capture to record that.

To its credit TunesKit Audio Capture does let you set higher quality sampling & bit depth for your recordings than many other recording apps, and can save a fair number of audio formats, though they might have included wave 64 [.w64]. It includes some GraceNote & minor editing capabilities. The app’s Help says this about multiple tracks: “Note: This smart audio capture supports recording several tracks at the same time, meaning you can operate other programs to play different music and it will record all sounds while saving the tracks independently.”

When it comes to audio recording, the software you use isn’t really going to do much to influence quality. Some software lets you add filters &/or FX, but the actual quality depends more on the hardware used, & with PCs, the amount of electrical noise. IOW software can matter when it comes to working with the audio files you’ve already got, but the basic quality of the recorded audio, not much.

Installing TunesKit Audio Capture adds the program’s folder, with 167 files, 4 folders, taking up ~66 MB. An empty folder is added to the user Documents folder, and you get a folder in C:\ Useres\ [UserName\ AppData\ Local\. I recorded just over 100 new registry entries – one key for uninstall, HKCU keys for Tidal & TunesKit, and a HKCR Tidal key.

mike, Thanks for all that info; very informative. Made up my mind, for me.

mike, thanks from me, too! Good information. I still have lots of questions but will give this a try. This looks like a good "last resort" tool and might work well enough to use whenever I want to record audio.

No install problems. Works as written. I've tried others, but this one has a few more features, the merge all is pretty neat. I most likely will purchase a license.

Tuneskit AC works fantastically, it records the audio streams with great sound clarity. Tuneskit AC combined with quite possibly the finest media player ever created, Zoom Player, which unfortunately does not include a record function, but has every other function one will ever need, will provide endless musical recordings one can enjoy forever.

Thanks GAOTD.

Chip, Obviously you have never tried Pot player/recorder and VLC player/recorder, they outshine even the professional quality studio software in many cases.

So, why is it any different to the other audio recording software that I already have? Audacity, Audition, Cool Edit Record ,Wavepad etc. All free!

Jeep Jockey,

A big part of apps like Audacity is their editing capabilities, which you'll not find in Tuneskit Audio Capture. The main focus with Audacity, & many [most?] other audio apps is recording the signal at the hardware input(s) & output(s), which today's GOTD does not do. Though Audacity does offer the rare capability of WASAPI recording [possibly the same as the TunesKit app].

Jeep Jockey, this spawns the audio playing program and inserts itself into the direct sound playback software chain with varying degrees of success and varying types of failure... e.g. If I launch zoomplayer giveaway build from this when the music starts playing tuneskit AC crashes and searches MS for a solution but zoom player plays on... but obviously nothing is captured. If I launch latest build of VLC from this then when the media starts playing tuneskit AC starts capturing the audio stream and VLC then vanishes with no reported error... pooft gone and just a fraction of a second blank capture is left in tuneskit AC capture window. Now when I try launching Vanbasco Karaoke Player and have it set to VirtualMidiSynth MIDI device nothing is captured by tuneskit AC at all.... it is as if nothing was playing... But if I switch to Microsofts GS software synthesizer which sounds pretty poor in comparison to virtualmidisynth the rendered MIDI output is captured but it is obviously not very good sounding compared to VMS soundfont rendered MIDI... Personally I get much more consistent results recording using Audacity using WASAPI method and the systems speakers as recording source. Adobe Audition and most other free sound recording programs are restricted to driver input pins and if the sound card driver does not have an input pin for a particular sound source you cannot record from it. Such driver bound interfaces are MMC, DirectSound and ASIO. But WASAPI availalbe in Vista and newer ONLY has certain limitations on its utility as does hooking into direct sound chain... The optimal way to rip streaming music is to get the compressed stream as is without DRM if possible, as that avoids having to re-encode the audio data with a lossy codec or a lossless codec that will not be as eficient in terms of space taken up and quality of saved media.

I really loved this. Thank you Giveaway, after months and months i got really good program. Except for the GUI, hoped it was a little user friendly.
But it gets the job done.
5/5

"TunesKit Audio Capture for Windows is able to grab just about any sound that your computer's soundcard outputs"

Just don't expect it to capture your microphone. Uninstalled.
