Recordpad Sound Recorder is a nice audio recorder that enables you to capture the sound from any source connected to your audio card and save the recordings to customizable MP3, WAV or AIFF files in your local folders. It can be used to record the voice from a connected microphone or the stream of an online radio station, among other purposes.

Recordpad Sound Recorder is very easy-to-use as it comes with a compact, neat and intuitive interface. Even complete beginners can handle this simple application without any problem. Though it’s straightforward and simple-to-use, it still provides plenty of useful features and additional options. For example, it stores the recordings in a list from where you can easily rename or play them at any time. Furthermore, it lets you tweak advanced parameters (bit rate, channel mode, etc.) for the output files, so the fact that only 3 formats are supported shouldn’t be much of a problem.

This powerful tool also sports a voice activation function that will start a recording automatically when sounds are detected. Hotkeys are also supported, as well as a “speech search” function that allows quickly searching throughout the recordings for specific content.

In conclusion, Recordpad Sound Recorder is a neat, handy, and feature-rich application that offers a really convenient solution to capture the sounds from various sources.
