SoundCopy enables you to record, save, Playback and compress voice, music and other sound. Recording time is limited only by the amount of hard disk space available. SoundCopy can receive input from CD, the Internet (audio files you've downloaded or streaming audio), Microphone, cassette player or any other line-in source. You can use SoundCopy for recording meetings, conversations and dictation. You can use it to make digital back-ups of your audio tapes. You can set it to automatically record a radio program when you're not there - the possibilities are endless.
I was prompted to create SoundCopy upon a visitor's lament that he could not find a Free Audio Recorder with an in-built scheduler and mp3 conversion capability. He asked whether I happened to have such a utility, or could make one, and said he was happy to do away with options for selecting different sample sizes and sampling frequencies, as long as the resulting recordings were a good compromise Between sound quality and file size, and the recorder had the basic auto-record and sound file compression features he was after. After receiving this request, I performed my own web search for such a program, but uncovered nothing - confirming my visitor's frustration - and I also found he was not the only one with these requirements. So I set about creating an application to fill the gap, and am proud to announce SoundCopy - a free, handsome, no-nonsense, easy-to-use audio recorder with the ability to record on demand or to a schedule, and convert recorded WAV files to mp3.
