@All,

Just tried the Demo version of Freecorder to capture internet music
via my PC Audio card. The reg version removes silent gaps between
songs, 128 bps, Skype call recording, and more. The demo captures
at 64 bps and has good sound quality. The full version price is $19.
Very simple GUI and you can pause to skip songs you don't want

I use to use Total Recorder, but their pricing is higher ($40)

Thanks for the link BP
However, for recording Internet music, I use "Station Ripper" ( http://www.stationripper.com/ ), because it directly records (ripps) the digital stream into a file, so you don't loose quality.
Freecorder will take your decoded analog audio from the card, and reconvert it to MP3, and there is a big loss there.
But for recording other stuff, such as Skype calls, etc., this is priceless

I like to listen to MoonTaxi. 24 hours of no commercial music with
different types, such as Jazz, Hip Hop, Rock, Top 40's, Easy listening,
etc. StationRipper can't capture it's stream:

Replay Music can do it all, but cost $49. It can grab ShoutCast, iTunes, etc.
and even grab the sound from pc audio. It will auto split and use CDDB
to name the file and save it as Wav, Mp3, Ogg, WMA, etc. It captures
at 44 mhz @ 96 kbps.

I use a combination of freeware, Mp3DirectCut and Mp3Split. The
sound loss is not bad. Mp3DirectCut records at 44 mhz @ 128 kbps and
Mp3Split can split at silent points in the file. Mp3Split can auto name files
using CDDB. With StationRipper you have to get a few seconds from end
of last song and start of next song, then remove this from each song.
