Free Sound Recorder is a simple yet useful program designed to record sounds from a voice, the radio, or just about anything that makes a noise. Whether you want to record your favorite songs, your own voice, or sound that is being streamed on your computer, this program can do it.
After recording the sound, you can save it in one of three file formats. There have been some complaints about the small variety of possible file extensions, but the three that are available should be sufficient for all of your recording needs: mp3, wav or wma.
Potential users should be aware that Free Sound Recorder offers limited editing options, so you will probably need an additional editing program if you require multiple changes to your recordings. The program allows you to apply special effects like distortion to the recorded sounds. And for the first 30 days, you can enjoy a free trial of helpful tools that will allow you to copy and paste recordings.
Overall, Free Sound Recorder is great for recording all types of sounds, and it's a good choice if you want a program that isn't too complicated or confusing. But it is much more "bare bones" than many similar programs. If you want to do a lot more with your recordings and need advanced editing features, Free Sound Recorder may not be for you. But for simple recordings that are really easy to make, Free Sound Recorder is a good choice.
