I don't do much of it now, but I like the scheduled recording feature built into Freeware Audiograbber, a CD ripping program that's been around forever.
My favorite thing is that Audiograbber can record directly into a compressed format, saving lots of disk space, where other programs would record a whole wav file and then encode it.
I would record long radio shows for later listening, like Don & Mike off of an AM radio station weekdays, for later listening. It would save in 32k ogg, and I think even after a power failure the file would be intact for later listening, so you didn't lose the whole thing.
Thanks for the suggestion. I took a quick look at the application. It doesn't look like it would record from a line-in, or audio input. Am I missing something in what I read? I hope I'm misreading, or missing, something.
