Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder Review (Complaints)

wondershare Virtual Sound Card

Update: I have received a lot of complaints about the Wondershare streaming audio recorder. When you are installing this software, you are required to install a “Virtual Sound Card” on your computer to record music. It’s fine when you are recording music.

However, you need to switch back to your default sound when you’re done with the recording. Otherwise, your computer won’t have any sound come out at all. That is what confused a lot of people who have been using this software. I saw a user who had reinstalled the whole Windows operation system because he didn’t know how to fix this issue.

So, I recommend a better music recording tool called “Cinch Audio Recorder,” which Wondershare recorder can do but better:

  1.  The best part, you don’t need to install the annoying “Virtual Sound Card” on your computer as the Wondershare does. It won’t affect any part of your computer.
  2. Sound quality: It supports 320kbps MP3 and Lossless WAV
  3. Automatic ID3 tagger that Captures Title, Artist, and Album and the accuracy rate is nearly 100% while Wondershare is only 10%. That saves a lot of time for you to correct those wrong ID3 tags manually.
  4. Silent Recorder. It’s stupid that, with the Wondershare recorder, we have to adjust to the maximum volume of music during the recording process to get the recorded music with great volume. That is so loud!  However, the Cinch recorder allows you to record music while your muted sound on your computer. That means you can even record music in the library.

Have a try this better streaming music recorder here. It offers both Windows and Mac.

  1. Great program except it becomes my default audio device which causes the audio on the videos on my computer to be out of sync. If I revert the default to my realtek device its fine but the recorder wont work. Little problem I suppose.

      1. Hi Richard,
        It will be a one time investment and you can have the license forever.

    1. Yes, Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder’s virtual sound may conflict with Audacity or other recording tools

  2. I’ve bought Wondershare but since it’s not working anymore I’ve downloaded Cinch.
    But my registery key isn’t recognized by this one.

    Please help!

    1. Wondershare and Cinch are NOT the same company. You need to buy the keycode separately.

  3. Wondershare Streaming Audio Recorder:
    Since shortly I receive the following:
    ” You need to open Settings of your computer >Privacy > Microphone undeer the option ‘All apps to access your microphone”, turn it on and re-launch the program to check again. ”

    I have done this 10 times, but it still does not work. Who can help me with this?
    Thanks in advance,
    Best regards
