Digital Audio Recorder Description
Digital Audio Recorder is a free, lightweight and portable application that you can use to record sound streaming from a microphone, in order to create and save MP3 files to the local disk. It doesn’t include complex options or configuration settings, making it accessible to all types of users.
Simple setup and interface
Setting it up takes minimal time and effort, since there are no unfamiliar options, prerequisite software products, or third-party offers comprised by the installer.
Just keep in mind that you must have a microphone device attached or built into your computer, otherwise Digital Audio Recorder won’t even launch (it shows an error dialog in this case).
It opts for a user-friendly interface made from a small window with a neatly structured layout, where all options are available. Therefore, you don’t need to depend on multiple windows to carry out such a simple task.
Easily record audio from a mic
It’s possible to choose the input device from a drop-down menu, specify the output directory and name of the new MP3 track, as well as pick the preferred bit rate before starting the recording, in order to establish the quality of the output files. The task can be manually stopped at any time.
However, there is no setting implemented for automatically stopping the recording, which means that you must keep your hand ready on the mouse cursor. Keyboard shortcuts aren’t implemented either. Once the recording is over, you can open the new file in your audio player to check quality results.
Evaluation and conclusion
It didn’t put a strain on the computer’s performance in our evaluation, since it needed a low amount of CPU and RAM to work properly. We haven’t encountered any stability issues, as it didn’t hang, crash or indicate errors. The output tracks had a decent audio quality.
Although it doesn’t integrate richer features, Digital Audio Recorder comes packed with intuitive options to help you record audio from microphone devices and save MP3 files after picking the preferred bit rate. It can be used even by those inexperienced with sound recording software.
