Did I mention that we can basically record from almost any platforms?  Here are some of the list of platforms where you can record audio using Cinch Audio Recorder.

It supports podcasts and audiobooks as well.

JANGO: It is an audio platform that plays songs from an artist or on the same genre. The great thing about Jango is you can even see the latest tweet by the band or artist. There are other options you can edit the frequency by its rating system.

GOOGLE PLAY: It’s available to stream online and on podcasts.  It has the same concept as an online music locker that can store up to 50,000 music for free.  They have a good selection of music, but if you want to store more, you need to pay more.

YAHOO! MUSIC RADIO: Yahoo! Music Radio, formerly known as LAUNCHcast, was an internet radio service which sadly also discontinued either in the Year 2013 or Year 2014. It was a free service with advertisement intermissions, as in any other music service platforms.  Free subscriptions were only limited up to 1,000 songs per month and had access only to stations that were labeled “free,” which is quite restrictive for someone who loves music. It was only accessed through Internet Explorer, so an alternative, that is, Yahoo! Music Jukebox was launched later on to accommodate other browsers.

SONGZA: A music streaming service platform, Songza is available in Canada and in the United States. It started in Year 2008 while the app was launched in Year 2010.  It was later on acquired by Google Play in the Year 2014 with a rumored $15 Million to $39 Million deal.  Its unique and interesting feature is its Music Concierge.  There’s more to your music search in Songza!  In addition to searching for genres, artists, albums, and songs, you are presented with various choices of mood or activity depending on the day or time you are using it.   An example, if you are logged in on a Friday late morning.  You are presented with six activities such as fashion week, working, working out, doing housework, taking the day off and brand new music.  It will then direct you to songs or playlists after choosing an activity.

LIVE365: Live365, One of the earliest internet and radio station platforms. It started Year 1999.  Due to the imposition of high royalties, it was closed in 2016, which is a sad thing. It revived its operation recently in Year 2017.  The good thing about this site is an artist can upload their songs and earn from it.

Hundreds of radio stations from a variety of genres such us Jazz, Classical, Gospel, Dance, Rock, Oldies, R&B, Hip-Hop, and a lot more you can listen.  Topics such as finance, trends, business, fashion, and anything you might be interested. All of these you can enjoy by creating an account with them or registering.

Be sure to be bombarded with ads that distract you when you’re listening to your songs or from your listening session.  Getting a paid subscription is the only way to get away with the ads. This is available in the online or mobile devices such as Android, iPhone, iPad, and Kindle Fire

RADIO.COM: It is an online audio and video streaming service that broadcasts all stations of CBS Radio, which owns a majority of radio stations in the United States.  Radio stations from other countries aren’t available.  But, given the wide variety of radio stations in the U.S, it is already good enough to listen to.  You can listen to music, sports, news, interviews with artists, mini-documentaries and anything available in the United States.

You can listen to via worldwide web or via your mobile app, which is for free. You can tune in to podcasts or follow your favorite sports team and games via your local U.S station.  Sports station streaming includes MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA and college team sports events.

SLACKER.COM: Slacker Radio is an online music streaming platform that was founded in the Year 2007 by Dennis Mudd, a former CEO of Music Match, later known as Yahoo! Music. It’s available online, and the app can be downloaded on smartphones or devices such as iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Blackberry, Sony Internet TV, Roku, Blu-Ray player, Xbox, and many others.

From this website, you can easily get an account for free, but the problem is the ads shown every 30 seconds or every minute. To get away with ads, the solution to this is paying a subscription either from two packages Slacker Radio Plus and Slacker Radio Premium.  Although, both offer the same features.


You can get great music from these music streaming sites using Cinch Audio Recorder. Just be sure to input your license to get an unlimited recording option.

The one thing to like about this software compared to another audio recorder out there when recording on these music streaming sites is the easy recording. If you have tried other software, you will notice that some files or extension needed to record.

It’s easier to record and save it as a single file by a few tweaks in the settings by increasing the time on “Automatic splitting.” Also, creating a ringtone out of this recorded music is an awesome thing. You won’t be confused when receiving messages from friends and family. Have fun creating a ringtone that suits you.

Just go through the drill of launching the Cinch Audio Recording, tap on the “Start Recording” button, then tap again the same button that now reads “Stop Recording” once you are done, and it automatically saves as MP3 in the drive of your choice. Lastly, make sure to transfer all your recorded music to a different folder.
