Do you wish to record online music while listening to streaming music or online music stations? Do you wonder how great it would be if you could record online music or songs on radio stations that can be Â saved for future playback? Recording music online is especially useful if you wanted to play it at a later time. However, the most important prerequisite for online music recording is having a good soundcard in your computer.Â It is the sound card device in the PC that allows you to record the music that the sound card allows. Along with this hardware device, you need a software program for recording all types of audio; from a full-fledged song to just a few lines.
Do you have â€˜Audacityâ€™ to record online music streaming?
If you donâ€™t, make sure that you have downloaded and installed this program. Audacity comes handy when you have to edit or record music. After installing the program, if you didnâ€™t previously had it, start the program. When the main window opens, you will notice a drop down box near the top of the toolbars. From the list of options in the drop-down box, click on â€˜What U Hearâ€™ or a similarly named button and ensure that the online music source or the radio streaming station is still connected and playing on the PC. Now, click on the â€˜Recordâ€™ button on the Audacity music recording program.Â After you have completed recording, click on the â€˜Stopâ€™ button (identified with a square on it).
Things to remember while recording online musicÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
First, make sure that you do not take any actions that create some sort of sounds. Avoid clicking on buttons or any links that can cause any sound. Disable all the audible clicks on links in Windows Explorer. As you are recording every single sound being output by the computer speakers, these audible clicks on links will be recorded along with the music.
You also need to plan the exact portion that you want to include in recording and that to be removed. Start recording from the portion you to want and stop as soon as the online music streaming is complete. Like any radio program, ads are run on online radio stations as well. Make sure, you stop recording online music before the advertisement starts and spoils the fun of future playback.
