Capture that Sound

Loop Recorder can capture music from the web radio:

The loop mode infinitely records up to a specified number of minutes in a continuous loop while scrolling the data.

At any time the current data can be previewed and songs can be cut and saved as WAV or MP3-files, while the recording continues in the background. So you can always save the recently played songs.

I may try this out to capture Jim’s rants on WWR I miss while at work.

  1. StationRipper is one I saw pop up in the blogs not too long ago also.

    A few thoughts … I have mixed emotions about stream-rippers … not that people are doing it, but that anyone gets in a snit over it. Recording off the the radio has been going on since prehistoric times. I don’t advertise stream-ripping because artists are sensitive about it and I hate to see legitimate webcasting get embroiled in the whole P2P downloading mess. We all know it happens. I don’t encourage it but neither do I discourage it. (Some moronic webcasters go bonkers when they see stream ripping on their casts.) Bottom line for me – anybody who takes the time to rip a stream, process the resulting low-quality MP3 and put it in their regular playlists probably wasn’t going to buy a CD anyway. Real music lovers, which Whole Wheat Radio definitely attracts, want the real CD. I left a more detailed comment in this thread.

    As far as recording anything I personally do on-air, I have absolutely no problem with it. No different than setting up the VCR to auto-record a show.

    I was going to ask first! Yeah. I was. Uh huh.
