All reviews for Total Recorder

6 reviews, Showing 1 to 6 reviews

My GF gave me a copy of the Professional Edition for Christmas many years ago, and when I installed it the .wav/.mp3 recording options were ready to use. Since it did that pretty well (the best I have ever tried, actually), I never looked into what else it could do.

Later when I had a more powerful computer, I tried many different programs to do screen recording, and none of the ones I tried worked that well. Just as I was about to give up on the idea, a friend of mine suggested that since I had the Professional Edition of Total Recorder I could upgrade to the VideoPro Edition for free, so I did. Screen recording isn't as basic as audio recording, so it took me awhile to figure out how it works, but once I did I have nothing but praise for this program. All those other programs I tried, and I had Total Recorder VideoPro available to me all along.

Review by Axel Slingerland on May 23, 2021 Version: 8.6 Build 7190 VideoPro OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

I must point out that it can do 32-bit floating point and everything below. Very importantly it edits compressed audio without re-encoding, compared to Audacity and anything else I've tried.
More notably here, it can include video processing, for $75. Formats except for mp4, except it can read m4a within mp4 input.

Review by GeoSlv on Oct 17, 2016 Version: 7.1 OS: Windows 8 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

This tool though cumbersome, isn't unlike the other screen capture tools in the same caliber (Tunebite, Snagit), but Total Recorder actually delivers excellent quality. It does use system resources very heavily, unlike Tunebite, but if you need to do a screen capture of a video and maintain smooth motion, good sound clarity and overall robustness in a product, I recommend TR. I did have some crashing issues, and a thermal shutdown at one point (probably time for me to get that chipset heatsink/fan or do something about my AMD 780G board which keeps trying to fry my Athlon 64 X2 5000+, but backs off (thank goodness!) -- so with my "processor power" maximum now set back at 85%, system seems stable.

Review by cyclometric on Aug 11, 2008 Version: 7.0 OS: Vista Ease of use: 4/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 9/10

Just got version 6 (been a user since ver. 4) and used it to transcribe some Audible Format books to MP3 at 8X realtime. The accelerate mode also works with WinAmp streams.

Review by olyteddy on Jul 30, 2006 Version: 6 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

This tool is ideal for anyone wanting to capture audio from LP,cassette or even whatever you can hear coming out of your speakers.It has many configuration options to tweak,insuring you have the best quality capture.It uses its own driver and gives you the option of limiting the volume to 94% (-1dB) to help avoid clipping.
You could choose the freeware Audacity to record if you wish but I find for the small registration fee that this tool is worth every penny.
