Max Recorder is a very simple and easy-to-use application that lets you record the sound played through the audio card of your computer. Therefore, it can record from a large variety of sources, such as YouTube, Pandora, Soundcloud, Vimeo, Spotify, and so on.
While many similar tools fail to record the played sound because they require you to first configure them in such a way that they can identify your main playback source (the soundcard and its settings), Max Recorder has no such issues. It managed to successfully record the played sound right as I started it, without asking me to configure it in any way. And that’s a big plus, in my opinion.
Another important advantage offered by this tool is its simplicity. It comes with a minimalistic interface that can be used by any kind of users, including beginners, without any problems. It features quite basic settings, for example, it allows you to choose the parameters of the output file, such as its quality (in kbps) or the channels.
In an end note, Max Recorder is one of the nicest sound recording tools that I checked lately, as it manages to combine simplicity with efficiency in a really successful manner.
