Free MP3 Software Recorder Downloads

To capture audio playing through a computer's speakers and sound card, a recording software program is required. Standalone free MP3 recorders can easily capture audio, which include some software players and editors that can also record. Perhaps you might want to preserve some rare vinyl records and cassettes by recording and saving in the MP3 format for safekeeping. Or use the microphone to convert any sound and voice recordings to MP3's.

Also choose a folder destination for your MP3 files and set and check the input (eg. line in, microphone, etc), output, and quality settings if any. Then record once the audio starts playing, and if recording a album you might what to split the recorded tracks with a MP3 editor. Often it's useful to have both a free MP3 recorder and editing software package for multi track recordings.
