Free MP3 Sound Recorder
Free MP3 Sound Recorder is one of the freeware apps created to record sounds from various sources, including audio cards and microphones.
In plain English, this means that Free MP3 Sound Recorder can create a new recording from any sound that goes through your audio card, including movies, games and songs.
With a professional design, the GUI lets you find out from the very beginning that rookies may have a hard time trying to set up the program.
And this really happens because Free MP3 Sound Recorder comes with many configurable parameters that require advanced computer knowledge.
Creating a new recording can be done with the help of a wizard that requires you to choose from multiple formats, channels, bits per sample, frequency and bitrate. Free MP3 Sound Recorder can export the recording to MP3, WAV, OGG, VOX, RAW, WAV and DSP, each of these formats coming with its very own pack of settings.
An online help section is indeed available, but this didn't work during our testing, as the URL seemed to be dead.
On the good side, Free MP3 Sound Recorder runs smoothly on every Windows version, but it still lacks some important features. Hotkey support doesn't exist at all, so you have to manually start and stop recordings from the main window.
All things considered, Free MP3 Sound Recorder is an app aimed at professional users, but the real problem is that it lacks not only a user-friendly approach, but also some essential features.
