FREE Hi-Q Recorder
If you are still looking for a powerful software solution to record the content played through your audio card, do not forget to give FREE Hi-Q Recorder a try.
Clean GUI, yet cluttered settings panel
Because this application has been designed especially with this goal in mind, it offers users a very friendly approach. While the interface is pretty easy to use, not the same thing can be said about the settings menu which might seem a bit overwhelming at the first glance. There are options everywhere you look and it is pretty obvious that this isn’t the well-organized look we have been expecting.
Start recording and choose the extension
FREE Hi-Q Recorder can record sounds in MP3, WMA, OGG and WAV, each format coming with its very own settings that can be tweaked with just a few clicks. You can select input source and the record volume, with a special tool to preview the settings on the go.
Split recordings and schedule tasks
Additionally, FREE Hi-Q Recorder gives you the power to define the recording length, yet you can also set the utility up to automatically splits the recording into multiple parts once a size or length limit is reached.
Last but not least, FREE Hi-Q Recorder also boasts a recording scheduler, which means you can start recording at a user defined time, with dedicated options to even set up the recording length.
Performance and conclusion
This tool remains light on hardware resources at all times and therefore, does not affect the computer’s performance in any way. The response time is good and our tests did not reveal any errors, crashes or hangs.
FREE Hi-Q Recorder is a very handy audio recording tool and not only that it is available for free, but it also provides an amazing audio quality that is very close to the original.
