Tools like the Internet Download Manager let you often download the media content you are streaming online. But their function does not work with content from many popular audio streaming websites. Usually audio streaming websites deliberately make it difficult for the site visitor to download the audio they stream. This can be a problem if you need the audio to be available offline. Thankfully, there is a tool called Streaming Audio Recorder that solves this problem for you.

Streaming Audio Recorder is a desktop application for Windows computers. The app lets you record any audio that you are streaming from any website. Not only that, but it also lets you record any audio being played on your computer. Basically, the application uses your computer’s primary sound source as its recording source and passes whatever audio is being played through itself by adding a new virtual audio device. There is an option to add the microphone stream into the recorded audio which makes it possible to record the audio of your online conferences.

To record the audio, you simply click on the Record button in the app and then the Off button when you want to stop. When your audio is recorded, you can specify which audio format to save the audio in; supported saving audio file formats include MP3, AAC, OGG, WMA, and WAV. You can also set more specific options for better recording such as skipping silent passages and not recording items that are less than a particular length.

The built-in audio editor of the application enables you to quickly edit the recorded audio as soon as it has been recorded without opening any third party applications.


The free version of Streaming Audio Recorder lets you record only single streams of audio at a time with a maximum length of 3 minutes. These limitations can be removed by opting for the paid version of the app that costs $39.95 for personal use and $79.95 for commercial use. Fortunately however, the app’s developers have generously offered 5 free personal licenses to the first 5 commenters on this post.

  • Lets you record streaming audio.
  • Can record audio from microphone simultaneously into same file.
  • Supports MP3, AAC, OGG, WMA, and WAV output formats.

    This does look to be an interesting tool. I'm wondering what a resource such as Spotify would make of it.
