Audials is one of those software companies that put much effort into making their products better with each passing year.
The company's flagship product is called Audials One, and aims to be the ultimate media recording and conversion software for Windows users.
To be more precise, it basically records anything that can be played on your computer: music, movies, TV series, live TV content, as well as content from popular music and video streaming services such as Spotify, Amazon Music, Deezer, Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, and many more.
At first, the app might seem a bit intimidating for newcomers. Even though the app boasts an impressive array of features, the app can be split into two main parts: the features for music recording, and those for video recording.
Everything you need can be found in the app's sidebar. In the music department, there are four entries: Music, Radio, Music Streaming, and Playlists. In the Music section, you can explore music lists, charts, compilations, artists, or even search for artists yourself. To record a tune, simply click the record icon to save a track to your computer.
Sources include YouTube, Spotify, Deezer, and other renowned music streaming sites. You can also record multiple songs at once. The Radio section displays all the radio stations sorted either by country or by genre.
It's worth noting that the app also offers options to import and export playlists to and from Spotify and YouTube. You can also schedule recordings, as well as record music at various quality levels (such as Ultra HD, HiFi, or Master). You also get to choose to add covers and lyrics to songs. At this point, the app supports somewhere around 100,000 Radio stations and around 350,000 podcasts.
As mentioned before, Audials One supports video recordings as well. There are four main sections for this particular task, namely Entertainment, Video Streaming, Podcasts, and Television.
To start recording, simply select one of the available services listed within the app, select a default browser for loading the website (and ensuring all the required logins), and click record.
Needless to say that the batch recording feature works just as well when it comes to video recording. You'll find all the downloaded videos, movies, and TV shows under the Entertainment section.
It's also worth noting that you are provided with a plethora of options when it comes to the video recording quality. To keep the quality of the records as high as possible, Audials One offers you the option to record using your graphics card. It also comes with support for adaptive streaming, EME DRM & HTML5, graphics card encoding that can generate video formats such as MP4, H.265, 3GP, AVI, FLV, MKV, MOV, WMV, and more.
Audials One is probably one of the best (if not actually the best) app for recording online content on your computer. Whether we are talking about recording music, TV shows, movies, streaming sessions, podcasts, Audials One delivers as promised: high-quality recordings with no more than a few mouse click.
