Q: Recording Streaming Internet Music

http://www.sunny106fm.com/ It is a great station, I think, and I would like very much to be able to download and then burn the music they play to a CD. I will be most willing to accept free software to do this with if anyone knows of one. Otherwise, I will gladly look at any and all suggestions you make. And TIA.
I have never attempted to do this, don't know if it can be done and I know nothing about any part of this. Oh yes, I listen to the station when I am surfing the net, reading the forums; etc.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hi there!

I am trying to record internet radio as it is streaming online (Itunes radio). I am using recording software: Audacity on my laptop, which is a Lenovo U450 ideapad. However each time I record, I am picking up the sound of the laptop microphone as well, i.e. I canít just record the sound of the streaming music; I record all the other sounds in the room as well! The same thing happens with the 'Sound Recorder' software on the laptop. I have tried changing some settings on audacity ie trying to use different microphone inputs. It gives me the option to use:

MME Microsoft Sound Mapper Ė Input
MME Realtek High Definition
Windows Direct Sound Primary Capture Driver
Windows Direct Sound microphone (Realtek High Definition)

However all these currently pick up the laptop microphone ie my speaking as well as the music. I tried using an older version of Audacity but that didnít work. Do you have any ideas around it please? Maybe you can you tell me how to disable the main laptop microphone so it just picks up whatís playing? I used to be able to do this perfectly on my pc. Thank you very much for trying!

Yours,

Lucy

OK--I tried Music Match and Yahoo JukeBox on this new build (Asus A8R-MVP) and had the same problems. Musicmatch plays between 2 and 10 songs or so and most of the time just stops (no errors), but sometimes, it will be stuck in a stutter and the puter is frozen with no option but reboot--doesn't seem to have any other problems. I tried upgrading the drivers for the onboard sound and a host of the other usual troubleshooting issues on software (i.e., closing all running programs). I even took out the only other PCI card I had in there (a television tuner card).

I have MM running on another computer on the same network with no problem.

At this point, I am suspicious of 2 hardware issues--either the onboard sound or the onboard network card.

I'm used to Realtek onboard audio, but this has audio via ULI's M1575 and Analog Devices using a AD1986A codec. Never uses this and wondering if that's an issue.

Also, of course, this is music streaming from the Internet, so it could be the Internet card. I'm going to pop a wireless in there to see if I have the same problem. Although since I have no other Internet problems with this machine, I'm skeptical it is internet related.

I'm convinced it has to be hardware or hardware driver related.

Any ideas?

Hi!

I want to record a radio program that runs for three hours nightly, from midnight to 3:00A.M. on the internet. The program is the classics from the "Golden Age of Radio" that I hope to copy for a senior in the hospital.

The plan is to record it as a low resolution MP3 (32 or 64 bit), burn it to a cd that would be played on a discman.

I know I have to purchase a recording program such as Total Recorder or Super MP3 Recorder.

I have tried the trial version of TR that allows only 40 seconds. It is hard to determine how large the file size of the would be. The instructions seem to be slanted more to song recording length, not three hours.

Before I buy I would like any some advice. Has anyone done this? Are there any recomendations?

Thanks

Hi - I have a RealTek HD sound card in my E-Machines desktop system (new). I'm trying to record streaming audio - basically I want to simply record what I'm hearing through my speakers. But when I try to choose that input, it doesn't seem to be there. My choices are CD Volume, FrontMic, Mic Volume, and Line Volume (see attached pic) - and FYI - I did scroll over to the right - no additional options there.

There is no "wave" or "stereo mix" input choice. Any of the available choices I've tried and they don't record the live audio that's playing on my system. Is there a plug-in or something that will allow me to do this? I just want to record the same stuff that I'm hearing. Help! Thanks -

I have followed thoroughly various tutorials for setting up OBS for streaming. Initially I had set it up for Youtube, then switched to Twitch. This works fine. I have absolutely no complaint with that. Streaming out to these platforms is working as I would like.
This issue I'm experiencing is what I can best describe as a pulsing or jumping, about once per second when I play a file back that I have recorded (not streamed) with OBS.

The audio is flawless, no stuttering, nothing like that. Audio BR is at 160...

As I watch the status information in OBS as I am recording, I see no warning about overloaded encoder, the frame rates are where they are supposed to be, no dropped frames. everything should appear to be good. CPU load is unremarkable, again plenty of headroom. It doesn't seem to matter if I increase bit rate, decrease bit rate, CBR, VBR, increase or decrease framerate, or which software i use to view the output fine: VLC, WMP, whatever, there is this pulsing. Its just enough to be annoying. Its subtle, but it's there. And it doesn't matter which PC I play the file on ( I have a few I can test it with)

The computer running OBS is more than adequate for the task.

I have - in an effort to improve things - changed recording format, changed encoder, even the location to which I was saving it ( initially that was a network drive, but I change to an internal SSD for test purposes) I can not get rid of this.

Pretty self explanatory- my specs are on my profile and I'm including the zip file as per usual BSOD post.

My computer runs the game fine and can even handle media on my second monitor during gaming. I've rarely had issues streaming / recording / watching stuff and gaming simultaneously - I've been having all kinds of issues as of late and while I can run the game without issues at all - as soon as OBS comes into the picture I get BSOD'd.

The reason I'm making this post rather than accepting the limitation of a weaker graphics card (outside of the BSOD) is that on day one I was able to stream and record simultaneously for hours on end - and even earlier points throughout the week I've had no problems.

However lately while toning everything down and running less background stuff I still crash much harder than I should. Earlier I tried to record 5 minutes of content and my system crashed hard, but hours prior I'd recorded a solid 2 hours without break.

I appreciate any input and will give any info that I missed - thanks for taking the time guys.

I recently had a friend replace my computer, as it died. On my other computer, I had Audacity to record internet streaming audio, and to record spoken parts for my podcast show. When I had Audacity installed on my old computer, it had 4 options: Line-In, Microphone, Stereo, and Mono. I used the mono and stereo options to record streaming internet audio.
After installing Audacity on this computer, I only have the Line-In, and Microphone options. I have tried downloading other versions of Audacity, but it still only has the Line-In and Mic options no matter what version that I install. (I have version 1.2.6 of Audacity installed presently on my computer) The sound card is a SoundMax AudioESP. My friend says that he installed the lateest drivers for that sound card before he gave it to me.

It's not Audacity, it's your sound card. It doesn't support the Advanced internal features for recording.

Greetings all, it has been awhile since I last posted, aside from my computers of which I have 4, I am also a long time audiophile, and have quite the collection of high end vintage stereo equipment. I have a friend who is more hard core about his sounds than I am.
I am fishing for opinions, I have bought a new ASUS lap top that I have a really good sound card and Graphics HDMI card installed. I also am an avid user of ITunes, and have found that their Lossless recordings are better than most of my CDs. I am also rather tired of playing one CD after another, so I recorded all my music, a little over 100gigs on 3 of my computers one being my new lap top. I also use ITunes Icloud service for storing my entire library including all my settings, and have used it to load up my laptop with all their lossless versions of all my music including what I bought from them.
I find the quality to be better than CDs, and better than what I hear on my tube CD player, while playing it from my computer files. My friend says that recorded music on a computer will degrade over time, and that a hard drive will not keep all files in one place, therefore the degrading of the information. He says that the new streaming services along with the new streaming players are far better.

A:Computer Harddrive recording or Streaming lossless audio, which is best?

Which is better depends on the source and the quality settings of the capture. A lossless copy of a CD and the actual CD should sound the SAME. If they do not, you have a player, configuration, or hardware issue. It doesn't matter if you are comparing CD's, ripped files from a CD, or streaming files (assuming all files are from the same source CD version).

Files stored on a computer do not "degrade over time". They will never change unless of course the HDD fails. So you either misunderstood what you friend was telling you, or he doesn't understand computers.

Hi,
I can not answer your questions, but I want to record my radio/cassettes/records to Cd and also my VHS to VCD or DVD.
If you can give me any advice on how to do all this, what cables or software needs to be downloaded free or purchased, what cards, etc are needed, I would appreciate it. I have no idea how to get started.

Nick

i have recently bought sonar 6, a recording program. the program seems to work fine except when i would like playback. im pretty sure its because i dont have a good enough sound card, that supports midi. are there any drivers or ways to emulate a midi soundcard which fool my computer into thinking it works and actually play my music back? ;-) im running windows XP on a gateway laptop.. not sure what sound hardware i have. thank you for any help!
 

A:MIDI and recording music...

Under options or settings, you should have a place to select your output device. You don't need midi out to just do playback, but if you have more than one sound device, (like onboard plus a PCI card), it may have defaulted to the incorrect one. Check your options and see if you can change it to another setting.

As a part time DJ, i spend a lot of time playing the same music in the same order, so i was thinking what if i could just sit down and record the tracks that i play directly into one big MP3 and then it would save me having to load and cue each track.

I use a program called ClubDJ Pro3, its a twin deck system with a predefined playlist, i can usually just load a playlist and tell it to cross fade during the last "X" seconds of the song (X being a set time between 3 and 10 seconds).

However i find some songs have an extended silence at the end that can (when i first played them) mess up the auto cross fade facility and as anyone will tell you, silence is deadly when your doing DJ'ing.

So is there a program i can use to either record directly from my program or use another PC or laptop to record onto, i assume i would use the earphone out on one to the Line In socket on the other PC/Laptop and then record onto that.

It would be good as it then means i can use different mixes of my own.

you might use WavePad Sound Editor to remove the trailing silence

I play guitar, and was wanting to use my PC as my amp. problem is when I go to my default sound recorder for windows & plug my guitar in to line in, or mic. in on my sound card, nothing happens. It just records blank space. My s. card has 1 plug going to my cd-rom, but thats it, is there a second plug I need to go out of the s. card to the PC? Or is there different software I need to download for this to work? Any advice on what software to get to do this? I'm looking for something that will put the sound through the speakers while I'm playing it. It would be nice to find something with a few decent effects also. Anyone with any idea where to get something like this, and how to make it work??

A:recording and playing music on my PC

Couple of things to check. Start>Settings>CP>Add/RemovePrograms>WindowsSetup. Scroll down and double click on "Multimedia". Now scroll down and be sure "Sound Recorder" is selected. If not, select it to install it.

Start>Settings>CP>Multimedia. Is your sound card selected as the preferred device for "Recording"? If not, select it.

Double left click on the Sound icon in the systray at the right hand corner of the screen. Click on Options>Properties. Select "Recording". Now scroll through them to be sure all devices are selected. Then be sure none are set to "Muted" and the Volume is set on. Do the same for "PlayBack".

Hi.

I don't know where to start. I thought this would be easier!

I'm a bit of a technophobe and need someone to explain to me from scratch what I need (Hardware/software) to start recording myself on my laptop. I was confused before but now Vista seems to make it worse as nothing goes with it!

I guess I need some software (which?), some sort of audio/firewire thingy (?!!) I only want to do it acoustically and keep it as simple as possible. Will I need a special microphone too?

Can anyone help me in anyway? Technology makes me want to cry!!

Hello. My OS is Windows XP. I just bought a CASIO CTK 3000 Musical Keyboard. I connected it to my PC using USB cable and it got detected and installed automatically without any problem. Now my question is, which software would I need to start recording the music that I play on the keyboard? Just any good software which can record and save in a familiar format like MP3 or WAV? Thank you
 

A:Music Recording Software?

Audacity will do the trick.
