Yes, there are all kinds of other ways to record audio into your Linux computer. Personally, I use Audacity for the majority of my recording needs, but what if you’re listening to a live broadcast on-line? That’s where Audio-Recorder comes in handy.

Audio-Recorder will not only record an external source, like your old cassette deck or the radio, but it will actually record anything that is coming through your speakers!

After you launch Audio-Recorder, you will see a nice big Start Recording button in the upper left side of the window.

Anything that is currently playing in your speakers, will be automatically recorded. You can input your own file name, or else the software will use the current date and time that the recording started.

You can record on the .ogg, .mp3, .wav, .flac, or .spx audio formats by choosing the format in the menu before you start recording.

Where Audio Recorder becomes really handy, is when you use the built-in timer to automatically start recording. You can specify a start time, end time, and even a pause and restart time.

Under the Additional Settings button, you can specify your desired record location and default audio source.
