Windows: If you’ve ever tried in vain to find a song you heard on a streaming internet radio station but didn’t get to the song info in time, StreamWriter can help. The free Windows program can record multiple audio streams simultaneously and also features scheduled recordings, a wishlist of songs you want to record, and the ability to add songs to an ignore list.
I was generally impressed with StreamWriter. I’ve used it now for the past hour recording songs from Radio Rivendell (fantasy movie music) and Ancient Faith Radio. (Eastern Orthodox chant) The song files have the title and artist tagged correctly and use the radio station name as the album name. All of the music recorded as of yet is 128 KB/s which isn’t optimal but is expected given the source.
Next time I hear a new song I like and forget to check the song info before the track changes I’ll be able to open up my StreamWriter folder and find the song.
