Digital Audio Recorder is an exceptionally light program whose one and only function is to record audio from a microphone. Although rather unattractive, this application’s interface is very simple and above all intuitive. I do not think that you will find any difficulty in starting the use of this program, however, inexperienced you may be.
The operation is extremely easy. You just need to provide a few basic parameters to start recording. First, you can select a recording source from a dropdown list. Next, you need to tell this program where you want the output file to be saved. In addition, you can choose the recording quality by selecting a bit rate. Take into account that the higher the bitrate, the greater the quality but also the bigger the file size. Seven different bitrates ranging from 64 to 256 Kps are available here. When you are done with this, you will be ready to start recording. There is an unmistakable button that you can push to begin to record. When in recording mode, this same button will stop this function.
One limitation of this application is that it does not allow playing the recorded audio right from its interface, so you have to browse to the output folder and use an external audio player instead. In addition, the button labeled “help” does not really take you to help, what it really does is telling you what to do when the application fails to record sound from a given source.
- It is light and easy to use
- It only saves as MP3
- It does not allow playing audio files directly from its interface
