The Story So Far: The End of Internet Recording?
Conspiracy theories are all around. But, whatever it is, lots of PC users have reported that they can no longer record any audio playing through their PC’s soundcard.
Now we can no longer record the great digital music that we listen to on the Internet. Now we can’t record podcasts, speeches, how-tos and so much that as PC owners we’ve learned to depend on.
Recording from the Internet used to be easy, and one our favorite things about the Internet. And, it was one of the best ways to add to your music collection and grab those songs you love.
And music lovers everywhere have had angry reactions. Check the Internet. Just do a Google search for “missing stereo mix, wave out mix or What U Hear on Windows 7”
But regardless of what the real reason is, and honestly we’ve been unable to find out, most music lovers like you and me are being prevented from recording what we listen to on the Internet.
Why punish all of us for the occasional sins of the few?
With Win 98 and Win XP, we could record just about everything we heard.
But now, if we are using PCs running Windows 7, Win 8 or Windows 10 we are locked out, prevented and many of us feel cheated, because the What U Hear, Stereo Mix and Wave Out functionality of our sounds cards is, well, mysteriously missing.
Are we all being punished for the occasional, or perceived occasional, sins of a few?
Frankly, for the past 5 years, the problem has seemed insurmountable. After all, with Windows XP and even 98, virtually every PC could record from the Internet.
And we all loved it, used it and frankly it was often a major reason to even have the Internet. But with Vista it started to disappear and since Win 7, it’s just about totally gone for everyone and nobody I know knows why.
Well here at DAK, we won’t let being locked out, cheated out of, prevented from recording our music, stand.
Our clever programmers have looked again and again and over again at how to capture the music stream without access to Stereo Mix, Wave Out Mix or What U Hear.
Being smart and incredibly persistent (He who’s on the treadmill last, wins), they observed that Windows Media Player picked up the audio stream and played it. Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome all picked up the stream and played it. So, it had to be there.
And while none of these players recorded it, they figured that if the stream was there to play, why couldn’t it be recorded?
Plus, we did find a risky trick of using a few old XP sound card drivers that sort of played the stream with Win 10, but often didn’t work for the rest of the PC’s sound.
Finally, Problem Solved: Don’t Be Cheated Out of Your Music
We’d found the loophole. We still don’t know if there’s a conspiracy against recording or if there’s pressure from the RIAA, Microsoft, Pandora or Spotify. And we don’t know if someone’s going to knock on our door and order us to stop.
But we did find, connect to and harness the digital audio stream so now you can grab the pure incredibly clear 100% digital sound streaming into your Windows Vista, Win 7 and Win 8 PCs and record it to WAV, MP3, WMA or OGG. Now again, you can grab every song, every speech, every podcast. In short, anything you hear.
And, like I said, unless and until the Men In Black, or some other mysterious government agency shows up on our doorstep, we’re going to supply DAK’s all new problem solving breakthrough Forbidden Song Grabber Recorder so you can record anything you like, whenever you like, live from the Internet.
Of course, if it’s illegal to copy any particular program or song, don’t, but if it’s legal, why all the mystery?
Why can’t we do it? And who’s caused this problem, that’s taken us years to solve? We don’t believe in illegal recording.
But, for the few people who would record things that may be illegal to record, why punish all of us? Why don’t they protect just what needs protecting instead of punishing all of us all the time.
Easier Internet Recording Than Ever Before. Let’s explore just how easy it is to record anything you hear live from the Internet. The truth is, that with DAK’s all new breakthrough Forbidden Song Grabber Recorder, it’s much easier to record from the Internet than it ever was before.
Everything you need to record is coded into the Forbidden Recorder for you. You don’t need to find Stereo Mix, Wave Out, What U Hear, or anything. Just click record and you’re recording. You don’t need to find your sound card. You don’t need to set your sound card. There’s nothing for you to check to see if your PC has, nothing you need to do. It really is the easiest Internet recording ever.
OK, So How Does It Work? The Best Part:
DAK’s Forbidden Song Grabber Recorder is the easiest recorder ever. Forget opening your sound card interface. Forget setting your sound card for Stereo Mix, Wave Out Mix or What U Hear. In fact, forget your sound card completely. There’s nothing that you need to do and the recording is actually accomplished within the Forbidden Song Grabber program itself. So, no input is selected at all.
Whatever is playing on your PC will be recorded. It can be the Internet, a Player like iTunes, it can be just about any other player. It can be a microphone. It can be Line In. In short. There’s nothing you need to do at all.
What about setting your volume?
Forget volume controls too. With stereo mix and What U Hear, you had to turn up your PC’s speakers and any adjustment would adversely affect the recording. Well, with DAK’s Forbidden Song Grabber, there’s no volume control at all.
The volume that you set for your player or whatever is playing, is the same volume that you use for recording. So, you can mute the speakers, you can turn them louder or softer. It doesn’t matter at all. If you want to change the volume change it on the player or in the Windows mixer in Win 7 and 8 that gives you a separate slider for each application. No more hassles when the phone rings. No more loud volume to your speakers needed. The Forbidden Song Grabber does it all.
- Where do you want to store your recordings?You simply select any folder on your PC. I like to make one called Internet Recordings, but you can save your recordings anywhere you choose, even your desktop, music folder, or even the C: drive, or any USB extension drive.
- What do you call your recordings?This is great. By default, the Forbidden Recorder saves each file with the date and a unique number. So you can save 1 or 1000 files and there’s never a problem identifying them or overwriting them.Plus, when you save a file, you have the option to use the default date and number, or you can name the file anything you like. A quick popup interface lets you choose.
- Can you add MP3 Tags? Sure when you click save, you have the option right then if you’re saving in MP3 to add all the tags including adding an image. Or add nothing. It’s all up to you.
- What kind of files can you save? It’s up to you. You can save WAV, MP3, OGG or WMA files. By default, DAK’s Forbidden Song Grabber saves MP3 files at 128Kbps. But you have complete control of both the format and the quality of what you save.For example, in MP3, you can save at 64kbps (Medium), 128kbps (Standard), 192kbps (Extreme) or 320kbps (Insane). And, it’s the same for the other formats too. But mostly you’ll use the defaults for whichever format you like.And that’s really all you need to know to make flawless sounding digital recordings of anything you hear on the Internet or any other source into your PC. It took 3 years to find the loophole. But once we did, it’s easy as pie for you from now on.

To Wrap It Up
Don’t be cheated out of the ability to record songs you love from the Internet, plus phone numbers, URLs, interviews, and so much more.
