Record everything on your computer with just a click

Recording things on your computer can be a complicated business, with lines in and out, mics and syncing. An app that records from almost anywhere with a minimum of set-up would be fantastic, which is why I was so excited to try Easy Hi-Q Recorder.

Easy Hi-Q Recorder is not a modern-looking program - in fact, it's really old-fashioned. Even so, it's easy to use - just press the red record button and hit stop when you're done. The Options button hides lots of configuration options, and has far more features than what you'd expect from the main interface.

Easy Hi-Q Recorder lets you record to different formats, set a recording schedule, auto-activate and deactivate recording based on sound levels and even split recordings automatically to make them easier to manage. It goes without saying that Easy Hi-Q Recorder lets you record all kinds of sound, from CDs and voice recordings to streamed and online media.

Easy Hi-Q Recorder claims that to start recording, you just have to press record. Even so, I had a few problems that could only be fixed by changing the settings through trial and error. Once it began to record, it worked perfectly, but just bear in mind that troubleshooting Easy Hi-Q Recorder isn't an easy job.

Easy Hi-Q Recorder provides instant and simple recording on your computer.
