Jim, have a look at Blaze Media Pro. It does exactly what you want (and much more), alas it's not free ($50).Thanks for the suggestions, folks.
I have looked at the web pages for Audacity and PolderbitS. While the latter claims recording of streaming audio as a major capability, Audacity is apparently a sound manipulation/editing package which lists recording as a capability. I find nothing in the instructions that explains how to do that.
Can Audacity do a timed recording?
What I want to do is record the Metropolitan Opera radio broadcast tomorrow afternoon while I am away.
Thanks again for your help.
Cheers.The sound recorder feature can save sound recordings directly to MP3, WMA (using any desired profile), WAV (using any compression codec), OGG, and more. The sound recorder also includes a recording timer which enables you to schedule the software to record from the selected source at a predefined time and stop after a desired duration.
Let us know what sound card you have, maybe we can help.Thanks, folks.
I have now downloaded and tried Audacity, PolterbitS, and Blaze Media Pro. I was unable to capture an audio stream with any of them.
The problem may be my sound card.
The spec sheet for the computer just says "integrated audio". I think it is installed on the motherboard. Most of the input choices you mentioned were not offered by the software.Let us know what sound card you have, maybe we can help.
That choice wasn't available either.With PolterbitS in Sound source I choose Master recording and it records directly from the sound card.
It's probably some generic AC '97 codec, maybe a Realtek or C-Media chip. Which inputs were offered in the recording mixer?The spec sheet for the computer just says "integrated audio".
