Windows 7: Free Sound Recorder

16 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Free Sound Recorder

I used to successfully use Free MP3 Sound Recorder on my old XP computer. Having installed it again with 7, I cannot get it to work except with the microphone. My 'select source device' window is shown below. What setting have I not set?

Alternatively, can anyone suggest an alternative free programme to download for streaming audio please

If you are trying to record system sounds you need to activate Sound Mix.
Please try this tutorial.

You can stream almost anything with VLC.

Cool free audio recorder
I like to record myself playing guitar sometimes (nothing fancy, just as a kind of audio sketchpad so I can remember what I was working on), and I found a very nice free tool for that, that I thought I would mention. It's the Aimp2 (latest release candidate version) Audio Recorder that comes with...
