Jaksta Music Recorder can help you capture online audio so that it is available even when you are not connected to the Internet. The tool’s interface is quite similar to that of a general-purpose downloader. It has various tabs that work as filters as they allow you to view currently active downloads only or separate them by date. Besides, there is a box in which you enter the desired URL. As a result, using this app is not a challenge for any type of user.

It is good that Jaksta Music Recorder supports two modes: Audio Capture and Streaming, between which you can easily switch from the dropdown menu on the lower part of the screen. It also supports capturing audio from practically any media sharing site, as it can extract audio from video.

The tool lets you adjust various parameters. In this respect, you can configure the maximum number of simultaneous downloads and even set limits to the number of concurrent segments. This allows you to use your bandwidth smartly and prevent the downloader from interfering with your Internet browsing activities. Another possibility is to choose the desired audio source and even have the tool split recordings whenever it detects silence.

There are many applications that support downloading audio. However, Jaksta Music Recorder has the advantage of using the so-called song fingerprinting technology to automatically identify song metadata. It is good to know that its current database includes more than three million songs. This allows exporting the downloaded songs to iTunes in MP3 format with all their tags.

All things considered, Jaksta Music Recorder grabs audio from the Internet at high speed and without quality loss. Unfortunately, it does not seem to support importing a list of downloads as a single step. Besides, it cannot monitor downloadable sound being played on your browser. Finally, since this is a product deserving a try, it is excellent news that its demo version allows downloading up to 10 songs absolutely free.
