Sound Recorder Plus is a sound recording application packed with useful tools and interesting features. It can serve many purposes, some of them standard and some not. For example, it can be set to record sound only when any is detected, meaning you can use it to spy on what people are saying about you when you're not in the room.

With the default settings, audio signal is converted to MP3, but it also supports WAV, WMA, OGG and APE formats. Files can be analyzed, organized in projects, burned to a CD or joined together into a single file.

Lack of any kind of editing tools can come as a surprise, but the program is focused just on recording. Even so, simple things such as normalizing or cutting/trimming could have been included as they are often necessary.

If you need to capture sound from various audio devices such as speakers, old cassette players or other sources, you will find this small utility easy to use and nice to work with.

Although the trial version is available for 14 days only, the “10 seconds limitation” makes it impossible to test the full capabilities of the program. This is disappointing, but it still gives you the opportunity to see if you want to buy the product or not and if you do pay for it, you’ll probably be satisfied.
