AD Audio Recorder is a software utility that can capture audio from any recording device and save it to MP3 or WAV files. It features output configuration settings and other handy options.

Setting up the application is a fast and easy task. At startup you are required to select the recording device, after which you can adjust the volume level and start recording audio with the click of a button.

As far as the output audio tracks are concerned, apart from selecting the preferred format (MP3 or WAV), it is possible to pick the quality between CD, FM radio and phone mode. In case of MP3 tracks, you can also set a custom sample rate and bit rate.

By default, the recording is made in normal mode. AD Audio Recorder integrates another option for triggering it when sound is activated, which means that it will not capture silence. In this case, you can make it create a single file or spread the audio across multiple items, as well as select the delay times (pre-active, activate, post-active). Last but not least, you can use a built-in player to preview captured audio files.

We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, since AD Audio Recorder did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. It uses low CPU and RAM, and creates quality audio tracks. It may not be the most intuitive audio capturing utility, but AD Audio Recorder gets the job done and provides users with many options to tinker with.
