SonicWeb v.2 on OSX 10.10 Yosemite
This is a decent app for playing & recording web radio, especially for the reasonable price. There are a number of similar apps that are easier to use, but which cost many times more (AudioHijack, for example, has a simpler interface & is easier to use, but costs $50!).
The main criticism I have about SonicWeb is that its interface is rather complicated & isn’t very easy to figure out. The help menu takes you to the website with general instructions that don’t seem to cover everything. Also, it only records in the radio station’s streaming format, which means you have to use a separate audio editing app to convert files.
But once you learn to use it, it does a good job of playing & recording streaming audio.
SonicWeb, A Highly Capable Internet Radio Player-Recorder
I have been using SonicWeb to record programs from streaming radio stations for three and a half years and I find it to be a highly capable recorder with so many fantastic features that it only makes me want ever more! It records directly from the internet without the need for other streaming apps and provides two recording modes, the continuous mode which I normally use, and for stations that transmit title and artist meta data, a mode which will automatically split the recording into individual tracks by title and artist. In either case it includes a track trimming function that can be used to manually adjust the track beginning and end points so that they are just right. Recorded tracks can then either be organized into playlists within the SonicWeb app and subsequently be played with SonicWeb’s playback function, or the recorded tracks can be exported into iTunes where they become part of your iTunes library. All in all SonicWeb is a wonderful fully featured and highly functional recording app. The only important feature missing from SonicWeb is a fully featured timer based recording capability.
Good App! Works Well.
After Apple removed the Internet Radio feature from its new Music App. I needed an alternative. This is well worth the price. Simple, clean UI that is easy to figure out and use. And you can add any radio stream you like if one of your favorites is not already loaded. No regrets.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
