Software to record in MP3 format
« on: August 05, 2007, 12:01:20 PM »
I would like to make some messages by recording them into MP3 type files.

Does anyone know of a good freeware to do this ?

Actually, LAME has surpassed the Fraunhofer codec in some areas. It's top notch now. Years ago there were a few, but only LAME, the Fraunhofer codec, and perhaps some custom ones now remain.

LAME is a codec to save as MP3, no recorder itself.

For freeware recorder try:

I plead guilty to drinking & posting... 'Spose that would be a PUI offense.

Quite often sound cards are packaged with this kind of software. You might want to check there. Better soundcards often include higher end software packages as well. I just got an Edirol outboard audio device and it included Sonar LE - quite a nice piece of software.

Totally forgot about Audacity. Audacity is a free audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, and other operating systems. Main Features:

- Record live audio.
- Convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CDs.
- Edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and WAV sound files.
- Cut, copy, splice, and mix sounds together.
- Change the speed or pitch of a recording.

I like this one: http://www.audiograbber.de/

Not a recorder though. Wavosaur seems like a good option, but I haven't tried it. mp3mymp3 was featured on Lifehacker a while back.

I've used GoldWave for years, on and off.  I can't remember if it is free though.  If not it is upgraded for life for the one-time fee as I continue to download the updates and upgrades without problems.  Uses LAME codec for MP3.  A zillion features but still relatively easy to use and has never crashed despite moving hundreds of vinyls to MP3.
