  • Record Radio -> MP3

    I am looking for free software that can record from my Line-In straight to MP3.

    I want to be able to record live radio... Ideallly rewind/fast forward.. like tivo for the radio. i'm sure someone has done this.

    Thanks

      Any software that can encode an audio stream to MP3 can do it.
      I've used MusicMatch to record stuff from Mic, and I know you can use LINE IN, as well.
      I also know it's not the only solution, but it's what I've used.

      Now, how user friendly it (or any other apps) would be for in-car use? That's a whole other ballgame.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?



      Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

        MusicMatch is a pretty heavy duty app. I want something lightweight that will run on a MII10k.

        I am aware any mp3 encoder software can do it, but is any of it free? does windows media player allow this? if so perhaps the windows media player api would allow me to throw together a quick app with some big car-friendly buttons

            Do these kind of software take up a lot of load?

                Funny to see this thread as I was just thinking about this the other day and was about to post the same exact question....

                Take a look at Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

                It's an open source audio editing program (similar to others like goldwave, soundforge, etc...) and I know it can record but haven't played with that part of it enough, but I would think it would run fine on your system. Just remembered that I had it installed and will have to play with it on my car computer (EPIA PD mobo) as I want to record from radio as well.

                  dbpoweramp auxillary input can record from line in easily but i doubt it cud do the rest of the features. It would be nice for something like this, record rewind etc to be integrated into RR, or a plugin, id also like somethin like what ur lookin for.

                    I guess LoopRecorderPro is getting a little closer. I actually have record buttons on my RR skins for XM, FM, TV, and audio (streaming audio) that automatically start the program in continuous mode. You can adjust the loop length to whatever you want or record continuously. It has a quick save feature that I always use, i.e., when I hear a song I want to record I hit the record button in my skin; looprecorder opens and starts recording; at the end of the song, I close loop recorder and it converts the entire file to a sequentially numbered mp3 - carpc060302001, carpc060302002, etc or even date and time; then it closes until I hit record again.

                    The reason I say its close is because you can listen to the Loop while it continues to record, aka TIVO, but as far as doing this in a car environment, it could be hazardous. I may have to give that a try tomorrow and see what it takes to use it as a TIVO for XM. I'm sure if you use it for an external source, it will work; I think I only had problems with Wave Out mixing, so XM, FM, and TV shouldn't be a problem. Just can't do it while recording wave out mix. LoopRecorderPro does have decent buttons, but probably small on a 7" touchscreen. I have no problem using it on my 10".

                    I also use it at home to record my favorite European radio stations streamed over winamp at night for later listening.

                        I run some ads on my site that claim such a thing as well as recording audio streams over the internet. They supposedly find the breaks in the music & seperate the songs.

                        Try this ( I get like 10 cents if you buy it )
                        http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-1966385-10363532

                        I can't click on it to see the actual site, so thats all I can give you.
                        Hope that helps

                        P.s. Also let me know if it's any good.

                          I'm working on coding this into Road Runner for my XM radio. The main feature I want is for a simple button, that when pressed stores the current song or whatever (with title and information) to a XM folder on my hard drive. It's going to take some coding, but maybe using some winamp plugin's I can speed up the process.

                            I've had almost this for a year. It got so handy that I added one for FM, too. Now since I'm becoming addicted to Internet radio, I may have to add one to the audio player skin next. Mine saves the MP3 using date/time or sequencial numbering which works for me for now.

                            What I'd really like to have is like some of the old (run out of town by XM) freeware programs that would allow you to record the whole song regardless of when during the song you hit the button. I remember one program that did this would save the MP3 as "title - artist.mp3" and automatically shutoff at the end of the song -- all in the background.

                              Took me about 30 minutes to figure out what in the hek you were talking about... Give me a break -- I use the comcast DVR, no cool sounds.
