    Replacing Polderbits Sound Recorder

    I have a wonderful, single-purpose program called Sound Recorder from Polderbits software. Apparently the creator died a couple of years ago and now no one can get updated access keys to reinstall on new computers. The software was designed to record from vinyl or cassette with a couple of filters and then split tracks. It did the job wonderfully - but is now worthless if you lose the computer on which it was installed. Any ideas?

    I have been using Audacity for years. Maybe a bit more complex but then it will do a lot more than most and it is free so no activation needed.

    The SourceForge download is in the link above, here is the web site.

    I have been using CD Wave Editor for years. It is free with a request for $15 donation. I paid, because it is so useful.

    "CD Wave is a program designed to aid in CD-Recordable mastering. It was built for splitting WAV files from any source, like LP, tape or even CD. After recording, you can let CD Wave automatically calculate split points, or you can manually add and delete split points. After this, you can write out the tracks as individual wave files and use any CDR mastering program to write a disc that has no clicks or pops in between tracks. Also supports 24-bit and surround audio."

    "CD Wave (1.92) can write files in OGG Vorbis format, in FLAC (lossless compression) audio and in MP3 format (if you have the LAME encoder) directly."
