Amazing, easy-to-use Audio Recorder Tool for the GNOME-desktop.

This is an audio recording applet for the GNOME-desktop. This toolbar-applet allows you to record your favourite music or audio to a file. It can record audio from your system soundcard, microphones, browsers, webcams & more. Put simply; if it plays out of your loudspeakers you can record it. The applet has a timer that can stop the recording at "silence" or given clock time, after time duration or file size. It supports several audio (output) formats such as OGG audio, Flac, MP3 and WAV.
