Sonarca Sound Recorder XiFi is a software program that makes it possible to record sound from multiple sources (e.g. software apps, YouTube, common audio files) and to convert it audio formats of many file types, including MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC and WAV.

The interface of the application is quite intuitive yet primarily concerns users with some experience in similar tools, since its configuration options are mostly advanced.

If you are looking for a quick recording job, then all you have to do is specify the output format and directory. When the recording is stopped, the new file is automatically saved to the mentioned location.

As far as options go, you can pick the mixer device and input line, adjust the volume, left and right balance, as well as access Windows' Volume Mixer and Audio Device Configuration sections, in order to quickly make adjustments.

Furthermore, it is possible to select the channel mode, bit resolution and sample frequency. Enabling up to two visualizers require you to choose the block size, visual type, preset and amplitude. The output audio tracks can be delivered along with a timestamp, and you can set Sonarca Sound Recorder XiFi to automatically stop recording after a specific time and to split the track by time; these latter two options give you full control when you are multitasking.

Additional tools of Sonarca Sound Recorder XiFi revolve around the metadata, a task scheduler, silence detection and Digital Signal Processing (DSP), which involves frequency filtering, amplitude gain, speed adjustment, noise suppression, earphone enhancement and vocal removal.

Concerning the program behavior, you can make Sonarca Sound Recorder XiFi automatically run at system startup and to close to the system tray, enable global hotkeys for sound recording, as well as disable the monitor from turning off or the computer from hibernating while recording. Last not not least, the audio options for each output extension can be changed (e.g codec, compression level, bits per second).

The audio recording utility includes a user manual, has a good response time, is low-demanding when it comes to the system resources, and delivers audio tracks with a good sound quality. We have not come across any issues during our testing, since the app did not hang or crash. To sum it up, Sonarca Sound Recorder XiFi should satisfy users of all skill levels, whether they are looking for a straightforward recording task or rich configuration options.
