Power Record is a powerful program. It features something called Song Grabber, which goes back in time to record what you just heard.
Let’s dig deeper into what Power Record can do. You set the record time by clicking on the Add button. You can set it for One Time Only, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or pick the days of the week you want it to record on. You can also change or remove the record time.
If you have recorded with Power Record before, select one of your recordings, and then click on the playback button. You will be asked to “Select schedule file”, click on the OK button. You can hear the recording!
You can also record. Click on the Record button, and the following dialog box pops up:
You can change the record device, change the record quality, and save as wav, mp3, or WMA. If you have Song Grabber enabled, you can adjust the number of minutes that Song Grabber records before you start recording.
If Song Grabber is disabled, click on the disabled button. You will be presented with the same dialog box.
My advice? Keep it to under 10 minutes. There’s a lot going on, including memory usage!
On the right bottom of the screen you can “Save As”, which brings up the following dialog box:
Also on the right bottom of the screen you can “Convert”, which brings up the following dialog box:
