Pros Easy to use, small download, works well with most programs
Cons If streaming list of mixed albums, then you have to do some adding of info for each song
Summary I tried the trial version of this and before completing the tril, I bought the full version. Using Replay Music with Rhapsody was as easy as using a spoon to eat soup. I have trid some free software like Audacity, but nothing comes close to the quality and ease of this program. I suggest trying it before you buy it, just to see how well worth the price Replay Music is.
Pros Seamless recording of streaming audio, saved to disk as separate file with complete MP3 Tag. A great and ligitimate way to build your music collection.
Cons Sometimes confuses individual tracks but provides for easy editor to fix when required.
Summary The new version 2.0 is something the online music services would not want you to know about! Seamless recording and tagging of streamed audio is the fastest way to legitimately build your music collection for your personal use and to Sync with your MP3 player. Easy user interface requires limited learning curve. Integrates easily with Media Player 10. Allows easy editing of MP3 tags when it gets one wrong. This is how you use it: 1. start the software. 2. Hit the record button. 3. enter the artist you wish to record and click start. 4. Select the album you wish to play and click the play now button. 5. Have a spot of coffee and comeback when finished. There... you have the album completely recorded with all MP3 tags in place. Don't waste your time with other recording software. Just have fun.
Pros Version 2.0 allows UNLIMITED recordings at no extra cost. Works well with high quality audio streaming subscription services
Cons Requires me to re-adjust my audio setting after use if I need to use microphone for voice calls.
Summary Excellent product which works brilliantly.
Used with an audio subscription service such as Launchcast it records perfect MP3s with no clipping at beginning or end of files.
Make sure you buy version 2.0 of the software... this has NO RECORDING LIMITS .. unlike version 1.0
The only drawback is when I use my BT communicator software to make voice calls after running Replay Music 2.0
Then I have to adjust my audio settings back to the microphone input as Replay Music seems to hi-jack the input for recording purposes. Still not a great problem though and a small price to pay for a great product.
Highly Recommended !!
Pros Software seems to work (most of the time)... for a while anyway.
Cons Software is glitchy, documentation is poor, support is questionable, and no direct contact number for serious issues. Forget the accolades, they don't mean anything if you can't contact someone for as something as serious as non-receipt of product!
Summary Paid for product (two licenses) and waited several days for activation codes. Codes never received and Applian has no phone number listed on their website for contact to resolve serious customer service issues (like non-receipt of paid-for-in-advance product). I recommend that you steer clear of these guys, after all I've been through they seem a bit shady in my humble opinion. I mean really now, a few pennies a month spent for a phone line would go a long, long way toward some semblance of legitimacy (even if it only went to a recording stating that my call was important and that someone would get back with me as soon as possible! Here's a hint Applian... Vonage!).
Pros I DIDN'T PAY A PENNY
Cons TRIAL VERSION SAYS IT "CANNOT CONNECT TO INTERNET". ONCE YOU HIT CANCEL. IT SAYS YOU'RE DONE WITH THE TRIAL PERIOD AND YOU NEED TO BUY THE FULL VERSION. I WOULD CERTAINLY EXPECT THE FULL VERSION TO BE AS GOOD AS THE TRIAL VERSION. LAME!!!!!!!!!!!
Summary THIS THING SUCKS! NOT WORTH IT. DONT BOTHER. WASTE OF TIME. SCAM. USELESS. TRASH. GOT IT?
