Ratings and Reviews
SonicWeb, A Highly Capable Internet Radio Player-Recorder
I have been using SonicWeb to record programs from streaming radio stations for three and a half years and I find it to be a highly capable recorder with so many fantastic features that it only makes me want ever more! It records directly from the internet without the need for other streaming apps and provides two recording modes, the continuous mode which I normally use, and for stations that transmit title and artist meta data, a mode which will automatically split the recording into individual tracks by title and artist. In either case it includes a track trimming function that can be used to manually adjust the track beginning and end points so that they are just right. Recorded tracks can then either be organized into playlists within the SonicWeb app and subsequently be played with SonicWeb’s playback function, or the recorded tracks can be exported into iTunes where they become part of your iTunes library. All in all SonicWeb is a wonderful fully featured and highly functional recording app. The only important feature missing from SonicWeb is a fully featured timer based recording capability.
I first got this program hoping to listen to iTunes without ads. I needed to upgrade to Match to avoid ads on the non-streaming part of iTunes; there does not seem to be a way of avoiding ads on the streaming internet radio stations on iTunes or on other platforms. I have used this program to record from streaming internet radio so that I can download music onto the iPhone and be able to listen to it in weak reception areas.
There was a station that I like that was not on the station list. I requested that it be added and it was added right away. Great customer service.
This is a great program!
I researched all the available apps for recording streaming radio. All the ones outside the App Store are basically spam. There are only a few in the App Store that actually do what SonicWeb does, and SonicWeb is clearly the best. Great new interface. Developer immediately added stations after I requested. I switched to the Mac from PC recently and wanted to replace Station Ripper on Windows. This was a great solution. Thank you, Patrick, for a great app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
