Recording Content

Q: I can’t find the station/show I want! Why not?
A: The goal of The Radio Recorder is to include all shows and stations. We’ve made it very simple to add shows/stations, you don’t have to pick from our own defined stations. You just need to know the streaming link of the radio station you want to record. You can even use the TuneIn link to find your radio station’s streaming link. This is where The Radio Recorder is different from other recording solutions.

Q: Where are my recordings stored?
A: The Radio Recorder stores your recording, however, this recording is only for your reference. We believe artists etc should be paid for their music. This is why we only allow uploads to music platforms that pay royalties to the artists and producers.

Q: Does my computer have to remain on to record the radio?
A: No, you don’t have to leave your computer turned on. Once a schedule is set up, then The Radio Recorder will capture the recording at the scheduled time.

Q: How do I select a specific station to record a show from?
A: You can record any show/station you require. This is what makes us different from other recording solutions.

Q: How can I see a list of shows that I have scheduled?
A: Log in to your The Radio Recorder account and click on ‘Your Shows’ to see a list of your upcoming scheduled recordings. If you would like a list of your completed recordings please click on ‘My Recent Shows’. This allows you to play, download and re-upload your show.

Q: How do I edit a scheduled recording?
A: ‘Your Shows’ will give you a calendar with all your shows scheduled to record, you can then click on your show and this will load the show details on the left-hand side of the calendar.

Q: How do I stop recording a show?
A: Log in to your The Radio Recorder account and click on ‘Your Shows’ to see the list of shows, then select the show you would like to stop recording, you can either disable the show or delete the show. For example, if someone is covering your show for a week and you would like to skip the recording we would recommend that you disable the show.

Q: Can I start playing back a show while it is recording?
A: No, we record the whole show in one recording, this means you must wait for the show to stop before you can listen back. The playback is available instantly from our platform, third-party sites like MixCloud it can take up to a minute before it will be shown.

Q: I got an error: ‘Failed – {Message}’. What does this mean?
A: Due to The Radio Recorder recording live radio streams there can be times when the recording will fail. This is very unusual but we will let you know. We always give a reason for the failed alert. A common one is ‘Lack of recording minutes’ this is because you have run out of recording minutes. Please contact support at info@theradiorecord.com for any issues with failed recordings we will help you understand why.

Q: How can I schedule more than 1 recording?
