Overview: Replay Music (Last.fm tune recording software)
Replay Music is one of the BEST best streaming music recorders. It is a unique software that can record tunes from ANY Intenet radio station or online music service. Replay Music splits, tags and renames songs automatically. It can record tunes no matter what streaming format or protocol is used. And it can even record audio from sound card when you don't have the Stereo Mix / Wave-Out Mix / Record What U Hear on your Windows 8, 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP. So even if you have problems recording sound on your PC, you can still use Replay Music for recording tunes on it.
Replay Music is the BEST software for recording music from Last.fm. It allows to split, tag and rename songs from Last.fm automatically. It can also put all your recordings into the appropriate folder and even add them into iTunes, so you may sync your recorded music collection with Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod.
Unlike many other Last.fm streaming music recorders, it records music directly from Last.fm, so you don't record any background noise or any audio from your sound card besides tunes from Last.fm.
