Record music and radio shows.Based on a modern recording engine that is able to maintain music quality when recording, editing and exporting, Snowtape offers the best solution on the market to get your iTunes library filled up with your favorite songs.
Background Recording

With Snowtape 2 you can now record from multiple radio stations at once. With the new and vastly improved recording engine it is still easy to start a recording yet it is powerful enough to handle multiple sources simultaneously without slowing down your system performance. This has been accomplished by introducing the Zero-Reencoding Recording Process which allows to record and edit compressed audio. This new method is also the foundation for Recording Schedules.

Automatic cutting and filtering

Snowtape uses transmitted stream titles to automatically cut the stream at track boundaries. Using artist name, song title and track duration, Snowtape can filter out commercials and duplicates.

Preserve full quality. The new recording engine records MP3 and AAC+ audio streams in their original format. The built-in editor can cut compressed audio and the recently introduced 'Source Format' exporter is able to add ID3v2 tags and iTunes metadata to the original audio data and saves MP3 or MP4 audio files.

Crank out songs. Record from a number of radio stations and listen to another one.

Schedule recording radio shows.Ever wanted to schedule a recording for a time when you are not at home or still in bed? Snowtape solves this by introducing Recording Schedules.
Create Recording Schedules

You can program the recording engine to record at a certain time in the future or to record your favorite weekly show. Suppose you like to record a daily show at 11 pm and you do not want to get up everyday to hit the record button. Just create a recording schedule for that particular time and set 'everyday' as the date. All episodes for the show are being presented together in one playlist.

Wake up your Mac

You don't have to leave your Mac turned on only to have it record a scheduled radio show when you are not around. Instead use the built-in option to schedule your Mac to wake up just before the radio show starts. While Snowtape is recording, your Mac discards the Energy Saver settings. And after the recording has finished your Mac goes to sleep again after the normal timeout set in the Energy Saver settings.

Edit songs and get album artwork.Once you recorded a radio show you might want to extract individual songs or refine the songs Snowtape already extracted for you. Snowtape includes extensive editing features.
Find Album Artwork

Find gorgeous looking album artwork for your recorded songs with the built-in search engine. Select a song that doesn't have album artwork and click on the cover search button. Snowtape finds matching covers in an instant. On top you can also supply your own images.

Professional-grade Editor

The editor has been re-imagined from the ground up. We've not only added audio waveforms but also zooming, scrolling, creating new tracks from a selection, etc. The new editor now displays not only the audio from the selected recording but the audio of whole recording session. This means you can not only cut away audio samples but also add audio samples that would have been lost before.

Audio Fingerprint Identification

Create a new track from a selection of an audio region. Snowtape tries to identify the song by using an audio fingerprint algorithm and the huge Last.fm music database.

Search album artwork. Fill the gaps with the built-in cover search engine.

Refine track boundaries. Use the built-in editor to refine audio track boundaries.

Identify songs. Select a region in a recording and identify a song.

Export files or directly to iTunes.If you're done editing, you can export all tracks at once by simply selecting multiple tracks and hitting the export button. Snowtape offers a wide range of export options.
Export MP3, AAC or Lossless

Snowtape supports the most advanced audio codecs and guarantees full compatibility to your preferred music player. You have the choice of exporting to MP3 or AAC files. Or you choose the Source Format exporter which takes the recorded compressed audio data and converts it into an appropriate audio format that maintains full audio quality while adding album artwork and metadata to it. On top, you can choose wether you want to add Fade-In/Fade-Out effects.

1-Click Export to iTunes

You also have the option to let iTunes manage your exported files. This way you don't have to fiddle around with files and the Mac OS X Finder.

Support for AAC+ Using the Source Format exporter Snowtape can export songs recorded from AAC+ radio stations without quality loss. All Apple mobile devices support playback of AAC+ audio including iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
