I used the Hi-Q recorder on my old XP machine and it worked just great. I have a new pc with windows 7 and unfortunately my new sound card has no "disabled devices" so it records via the microphone option. The sound quality of the mp3 recordings are only just about OK.

Hi I would just like to say this software is easy to setup and I have had no problems with it. I use a microphone and the recordings are very clear and sharp and much better than previous ones I have used. You can record for long periods whereas some other software I havent been able to do this.

It's a great piece of software, easy to record and useful that it records in mp3 format. However, it would have been nice if there was some sort of auto-record option so that you don't have to quickly press play on one thing and then click record on the hi-q recorder window.

Hello Sirs:

I am Jay from Mumbai / India.

I tried your Free Hi-Q Recorder 1.92 today. Trust me, it was wonderful.

Though I am a NOVICE in this field and just learning, I, nevertheless; find your software awesome as compared to Total Recorder ( Standard Edition - 6.1)

Kindly tell me HONESTLY:

1) Is this software FREE really for unlimited
duration ?
2) Is there any 'catch' hidden in your offer?

3) Why are you giving it FREE? After all,
everyone in this world wants to make a quick

not satisfied

My HP Vists doesn't have the set up options as listed on your troubleshooting program -- I am not a tecnition and the solutions are not easy for me to understand as my sound system aparently doesn't have the options listed either.

The program sounds like it would be fun, but it is completely useless to me as is..

I would not recommend it as it now is...

I just love it. It would be interesting if you had a version with no installation.

Very pleased.

A nice application with a pleasing interface and plenty of options. Looks like the paid version has even more options available for someone who might be using the software frequently.

Author's Response:
I just want to thank everyone for their praise of my recorder, it's greatly appreciated! I hope everyone gets a lot of good use out of it.

I'm sorry some of you have had technical issues with the recorder. But anyone that does need help or has questions can feel free to write to: anytime and I'll do my best to help.

In response to blind and visually impaired users: I will be releasing a new version soon that at least will have Keyboard Shortcuts a.k.a. HotKeys. So hopefully that will be helpful to anyone that in need of that functionality.

Thanks to all of you and the qarchive team for your support!

HiQ system

This system is first-class, enabling me to record radio stations from the Internet. I particularly like that it automatically saves the recording to my desired location.

I was disappointed because the schedule function was not available in the trial version because that was exactly what I was looking for and wanted to try.

I use this program to record sounds from Internet, and program helps to keep sounds which I can not record on the other method.

It`s great.

The main thing I must say about this program, and beleive it or not it's completely true, is that it somehow produces mp3 without distortion and noise. I haven't ever found out any program which produces so clean mp3. Other than that you can tune various attributes too.

Free Hi-Q Recorder simple to use

I found the free Hi-Q Recorder very simple to use. The main drawback is that it is limited to 96Kbps recording speed. I would have preferred it to be 128Kbps for the freeware & then all above & other options for the paid version.
However, it works well enough.
I have used it to play a Yoga DVD on my PC & record the soundtrack as an mp3 to listen to on my Zen player to do my Yoga routine.
I have also helped my Uncle install the freeware on his PC, and connect an old record player to his PC so that he can record some old LPs & 45s as mp3s and add them to his Windows Media Player library. He can now listen to his old favourites once more.

Helping Blind And Visually Impaired Users.

As a blind user of windows XP, I have learned to appreciate everything that technology has to offer. There are many options available to blind and or visually impaired people such as screen readers, screen magnification programs, and so on. All of these make computers and other technology accessible to the blind community who use them just as often as sighted people do. What is not available to us in great quantities are sound recording/editing programs available for download. This may or may not be of interest, but I figured I would write it in the hopes that this product may be made accessible to blind/visually impaired users. The problem seems to be that graphical design was used in order to tell the user exactly how to use the recorder. Screen reading software such as Jaws For Windows does not recognize graphical interfaces. A few things that I can recommend for future upgrades which would make the recorder blind user friendly is to add a menu bar which most programs have that present the users with all of the options available. Another idea would be to make shortcut keys so as to allow a blind user to press either a key or key combination to achieve a task. If you wish to obtain other ideas, I believe a great place to start would be to visit I found that after I had installed your program I was unable to use it because of the graphical interface. This can be adjusted, and I hope that you take interest in this message as you may benefet many blind and visually impaired users who need adaptive and assistive technology.

Definitely worth looking at

Needed a program to record simple MP3's from laptop microphone. Hi-Q installed without trouble. Online help very quickly walked through a getting started screen to configure for the requirement. Was using the program without trouble in < 1 minute. On start get a dialog that a professional version is available (advertising) but thats reasonable and I might act on it - excellent software.

Very easy to use.

This program is straight forward and easy to use. I was able to record streaming audio in a mattter of minites. The worst thing I can say is that the text is small and a little hard to read at times.

Volume Issues

In order to combat quality issues, I had to turn down both the record volume and the system volume. Other than that, the software works great and is easy to use. I would recomend it to any one who asks, and am considering buying the full version.

MP3 Recorder

I downloaded this after I was having a problem with Vista's MP3 recorder, and it was much better. It let me record for the amount of time I needed, I used 3 minutes and was easy to work with. I have been having problems with it freezing up, but I'm not sure if it is just my computer or if it is the program. Either way, I would reccomend this.

recording educational classes

I am a court reporter in a continuing education class. I work on speed progression within my profession. This recorder is great. I did have someone recommend this to me however. She assisted me in working it together with Windows Media Player. I really did not understand all of that from your instructions. I needed assistance in getting it to do what I needed it to do.

Windows XP \"crashdown\"+HP problem

Dear Free Hi-q recorder team,
I have enjoyed the use of Free Hi-q recorder on my Packard-Bell for collecting radio talk-broadcast (I have never tried it for music).
But every tenth recording or so, the program provokes a crashdown of Windows XP after a few minutes. On demand, I have sent reports to Microsoft.
Now, I have a new HP portable computer. On this one, Free Hi-q recorder is not totally visible in the desktop. Mainly, the little shutdown cross in the righthand upper corner. May be that occures because I have increased a little the size of the letters and icons on my desktop on account of my decreasing vision.
Thank you for your work !
