This program is designed for archiving of audio content, e.g. live radio broadcasts, to AAC, MP3, WAV or Apple Lossless files. As a source, you can use a microphone, line in or any sound playing on your Mac.
Recorded files are stored chronologically by month and date, with file names consisting of the hour, minute and second at time of recording. Their duration can be changed in the Preferences ranging from 5 minutes to one hour or be continuous.

Ratings and Reviews
I really love this app. It’s simple, straightforward, and does exactly what I need it to do. The recording quality is great, and the ease of use is a real plus. The layout of the “Preferences” menu is very clean and logical, making it extremely easy to change bitrate and file length. Overall, this is an excellent app.
The Perfect App for Studio Logging! (32,000 hour update)
After nearly 4 years (about 32,000 continuous hours)of flauless operation, Audio Logger has become indispensible to our community radio station. It does what it was designed to do simply and without an interruption (except for OS update restarts). I was dismayed to see the two one star reviews for this app. They seem to be saying “…this screwdriver makes a terrible hammer.” By the way, Audio Logger can record from digital or analog line input as well as the microphone. While I haven’t tried it, my guess is that an optical cable from the audio line out to line in jacks would allow you to record anything you can direct to the output, including streaming audio without Soundflower.
I’m the Chief Engineer for a small full power FM community radio station. We do a lot of our own programming and because so much of what we do is live, we sometimes broadcast a real gem and curse ourselves for havint it recorded. I spent months trying to come up with a solution that would solve all the technical problems and make sure eveyone at the station could have access to the material at their edit stations. There are lots of very expensive systems that solve this problem but we just don’t have the budget for that kind of thing.
Along comes Audio Logger! Problem solved. I bought a used Mac Mini on eBay and a copy of Audio Logger. I had a few questions and was delighted that Pavel took the time to answer them. The support has been fantastic. At our station AES digital audio feeds directly to our transmitter. The mini has an S/PDIF digital optical line input. It was easy to branch digital audio off to the Mini through an AES to S/PDIF optical converter (Hosa ODL312). Audio logger encodes the audio using Apple Lossless Encoding so we full fidelity digital audio! I set the Mini up as a file server on the station’s LAN and added an external 3TB USB disk drive. Total price under $600. The other hardware systems I looked at were around $5000.
Now we record everything that goes over the station 24 hours a day. With the 3TB drive we can record a year of broadcasts. Any DAW in the station can download program files and edit them to make new best of or highlights shows. This has turned out the be the most popular project I’ve done in the 3 years the station has been on the air. Thanks Pavel for a great app!
