If there is a song or audio message playing on a website and you want to have an online copy, but there is no way to download it, your best option is to record the audio. To do that, you would need a dedicated audio recorder that easily captures audio from the browser. This is not a simple process and many of the common audio recorders may not be able to capture the sound at all.

But it is not impossible and, in this article, we will share with you the best tools to do it and show you how to use each. This way you can select the most ideal solution for your particular recording project.
