Capture streaming audio on your computer and convert it to MP3 or WAV files with preserved digital audio quality. Record internet radio webcasts, audio conferences, and VoIP phone calls made with Skype or Express Talk softphone. Transform DS2 voice recordings to MP3.

SoundTap Streaming Audio Recorder is intended to capture any sound that is processed by your computer’s sound card. Therefore, it is a way to record various types of streaming audio broadcasts, VoIP calls and voice conferences. The tool supports exporting as MP3 or WAV, which may be enough for most users considering that these are supported by practically all media players. In this respect, it is a good thing that you can customize output by choosing your preferred codec, bitrate and quality.

The tool has a simple-to-use interface; so much so, that an inexperienced user can start recording just by pushing the Start Recording button. Also, you can set the program to use not only your sound card but also a microphone as source. Moreover, it is possible listen to whatever you are recording or let the application work silently. The resulting files are automatically saved to a preset folder or any other you choose; and luckily, there is the Find and Play feature, which allows you to search for specific recordings by date, time, format and length and preview them. Luckily, you can also share your files on various on-the-cloud sites. The main limitation of this product is the impossibility to record audio protected by DRM. more

Very disappointing. Treble rolloff starts at about 800 Hz. Quite useless for recording. I had a version previously which was quite good, but the money spent this time is completely wasted.

SoundTap performs tricks: you only get a free period. If you accidentally lose it from your machine, do not expect any service to reinstate it unless you buy a "service" deal.
