Recording and converting audio formats

 

WM Audio records using the default WAV format of your computer. The default audio format can be found under Playback devices/Properties/Advanced. To see this right click the speaker icon on your taskbar. Most of Windows 7/8 computers are setup to output a format with a sample rate of 48000 Hz / 16 bit. The recorded file size is proportional to the sample rate and for 48000 samples per second is about 10 MB/min. Higher sample rates will produce larger files. Converting to MP3, AAC (MP4) or WMA usually reduces the file size by a factor of 10.

 

Recorded WAV files are automatically converted to the selected format when recording is finished. To select a conversion format click Settings then click Convert.
