Kat MP3 Recorder is a neat and handy audio recorder that can capture sounds from various sources and save them to common types of audio files such as MP3, AMR, VOX, WAV, OGG, WMA, AIFF, AU, etc. It can record sounds from a connected microphone or from any stream passing through the audio card of your computer. Therefore, it can be used to capture the sound from online sources like radio broadcasts.

The software is simple and easy-to-use as it comes with a neat, straightforward and intuitive interface. Though it cannot be customized, it looks pretty decent. A small downside is the fact that it cannot automatically detect your system’s sound options and sources, so you will have to configure its mandatory functioning settings by yourself before being able to run it and actually record sounds.

A remarkable improvement considering its previous versions is the fact that it no longer forces you to have your browser settings changed and unneeded toolbars added to your browsers in order to install it. It’s good to see that the annoying adware-like behavior has been eliminated. I also like about this tool that it includes a handy scheduler and that it allows storing and playing recordings with the help of the “archive” function. Furthermore, this handy application features silence detection and enables you to tweak various parameters for recording, such as the sample rate or the channels.

In conclusion, Kat MP3 Recorder is a nice audio recorder that comes with useful additional features and is provided for free. It's worth a try.
