Convert Real Audio files to MP3s
Authored by: Chas. Schoenfeld on Feb 01, '05 12:44:49PM

Wiretap, freeware from Ambrosia software, is an alternate way to accomplish this. As long as you can prevent your computer from making any other noises while you're playing the original.

Convert Real Audio files to MP3s

Or don't mind waiting an hour :)

Wiretap and its ilk are great for recording short 3 or 4 minute segments, but when dealing with hour-long lectures, or DJ sets, waiting in real time isn't an option, especially if you have more than one file to deal with.

Convert Real Audio files to MP3s

I went to Ambrosia's web site. Wiretap is not free software. The only version available as of today is WireTap Pro, and it costs. The free version was limited, anyway, so you couldn't convert a half hour or more of audio without hearing some kind of audio watermark mixed in with it.

I found this information concening WireTap Pro:
Users of the original (free) version of WireTap can continue to use WireTap Pro free of charge to record system audio to AIFF files. An audio "soundmark" is dubbed over your recordings if you use features not present in the original WireTap while using WireTap Pro without having registered it.
