    "It's a really cool and useful program especially for me who watch livestream of concerts on YouTube. It's really easy to use. As soon as you open the audio streaming then you can already hit record. I'm giving this 5 stars."

    "I like how the interface displays the recording options which are easily understandable. I can even modify the settings to adjust to my needs. I like especially how this program records the same quality as the original one."

    "I love listening to podcasts but there are plenty of podcasts with disabled downloading so I find Leawo very much suited to the purpose of keeping a copy of my fave pods. Admirable how this program can record both computer or online audio, as well as audio coming from mic."

    "Wow this app is lit! Lets me stream and record the audio streams at the same time. Altough there's a limit of about 1 hour for each recording session. I can even set scheduled recording for the streams I might miss so this is worth the price."

    "I've used Auda to record my own voice to overlay it with a karaoke audio. I didn't know I could also use this too for recording audio streams! The Windows WASAP setting does the job. And it's even on stereo! Amazing!"

    "Aside from allowing us to edit our tracks in Ardour (much like Audacity but a lot cooler), I ain't sure how this can record streaming audio. Maybe when u play an audio from your pc speakers while Ardour runs?"
