Replay Music 3 Public Beta Available

Music lovers rejoice! Even though Microsoft has tried their best to restrict your ability to record audio in Windows Vista, our software engineers have developed the coolest version of Replay Music ever! It will work with any sound card, and yes, with Windows Vista too. No silly workarounds needed. Just install and start recording music from your favorite online sources.
Here’s the spiffy new Replay Music user interface:
Replay Music 3
Replay Music 3 will be a free upgrade for all Replay Music 2 owners. Please download the public beta and take it out for a test drive. We’d love to hear your feedback.
UPDATE: Please report any problems to the Replay Music Technical Support Department (not the blog comments here). This will assure that Replay Music’s developer is made aware of all issues in this beta.

  2. If you aren’t running Vista, bypass the converting routine. Ties up resources and slows things down for those still using XP.

    Doesn’t work…i hit record and then log on to site to begin recording like i did with replay music 2. Replay music 3 doesn’t start and stop recording with the end of the song, after song ends it opens another recording track and continues from where the first track recording began and the first seems to delete itself. Glitchy and buggy. I used replay 2 alot and replay 3 recognizes music coming through my sound card but can’t distinguish starting stopping and starting up again

  5. I’ve been using Replay Music on Vista for about 10 days now. It has been terrific to have one of my favorite applications back again.
    I am encountering one small problem. It seems that every song that I record off the Rhapsody Music Service has about 12-20 seconds of silence at the end of the recording. The settings I am using are the one that you suggest in your User Guide. Is there a tweak that I can use to lessen that time?
    Thank you again for making Replay Music available to Windows Vista users.

  6. Tom – Thanks for the message. I’ve confirmed the issue you’re having. We’ll work on resolving the additional silence tacked on to the end of Rhapsody recordings in Vista.

  7. Woohoo! Glad to hear the x-tra silence at the end of a track isn’t only happening to me…..known issue!!!! So close, but yet so dang far away.
    Just to be safe, I sacrificed a 4-pack of Guinness Stout (and 2 Natty lites) tonight to the engineering gods so that they may QUICKLY find a fix for this pain in the A problem.

  8. Was so glad to see this new version (Replay Music 3 beta) I am using Vista Home Premium and when I try to record streaming songs, the Replay Music 3 beta works fine, BUT when I try to record in Windows Media Player OR try and record a Downloaded song then the Replay Music 3 beta does not work at all. It does not recognize Downloaded Songs.

  9. I’m using XP. I’m not sure I understand the comment: “If you aren’t running Vista, bypass the converting routine.”
    I have experienced some errors when getting to the end of a track, and starting a new track. I don’t know if this is converting to MP3, or looking up the track title. Is this the converting routine you mean?

  10. Tried Version 3 Beta on Sony Vaio VGN-FE590G running Windows XP Media Center w/ Service Pack 2.
    Saving as .WAV files.
    Crashes every few songs. Looks like it happens at the time it tries to recognize what song it is.

  11. Forgot to mention: streaming Yahoo Music Jukebox 2.2.
    (Note that I’m saving as WAV files, so shouldn’t be running the converter at all.)

  12. It`s working perfectly for Rhapsody so far. The previous version did not work for me.I am using XP.Thank you very much.

  13. This programs works great for Rhapsody but for some reason the self labeling isnt so hot. When it does label them its only the song name and nothing else, anything i can possibly change to fix this?
    I tried this on Sirius and it records fine but due to sirius having seamless broadcasting it doesnt split the songs.

  14. In Vista Home Premium, I launch Replay Music Beta 3. I press start recording, the program says “checking connection” then I get error ‘your registration code is not valid’ This is a new vista installation and did not have replay music installed before

  15. I am using Windows XP and Yahoo. I keep getting a little “burp” at the beginning of tracks. This occurs whether I turn off the conversion to mp3 (and record as wav) and when I turn off the automatic tagging of tracks. I am running out of tracks to record in the demo, and I don’t think I will buy this unless this can be fixed. (I don’t mind being a beta tester, but can’t see paying to be a beta tester.)

  17. Hi. Recording Yahoo Music Player (any of the Launchast stations) with XP (SP2) results in a bunch of Not Recognized, “track 1, track 2, track 3, etc” songs. Even though the song and album info is displayed on the player itself. I also have the tagging turned on. In fact, none of the songs are recognized and I clearly see the Gracenote CDDB logo pop at start and end of each song. This was also a problem with RM2.
    With both RM3 and RM2 I also noticed that songs (not always) tended to become one long recording –also on Win XP. Probably since Yahoo doesn’t “pause” in between each song. However, something must be sent to the YM player itself to tell it it’s a new song and change the display. Can RM cue in on that to end the song? Plus, if the CDDB logo pops at end of song, it should split it anyway, right? Since you’ve revamped the entire program with RM3, it is definitely something that needed fixing from RM2.
    I also noticed fairly large “.wav” music files created but not always deleted after conversion to mp3. Btw, since you’re converting files to .wav and then to .mp3, can you just add an option to convert existing .wav files to mp3? That would be a nice bonus…
    The interface color scheme is a little hard to read. Will you add other skin choices? For such a cool program, the interface doesn’t quite measure up… Even RM2 color scheme is almost too toy-ish looking. After all, RM is THE best streaming program out there; may as well look the part.
    Finally, can you add “160” as one of the bit-rate options?
    Thanks!

  19. Suh-weet. So happy us poor Vista slobs can use Replay Music again. Thanks to the dev team! I’ll be happy when the 15 second silence when recording from Rhapsody is fixed. In the meantime, I’m a happy customer again.

  20. Well It was good while it lasted. Napster forced me to upgrde to version 4. After that IT NO WORK. It seems that you can see the wave form befor you start recording but as soon as you start recording you get nothing. HELP!!!!!

  21. Could you please post when you release each version of Replay Music beta 3? I had to reformat my drive and downloaded another beta to find it was a newer release…and one which corrected the 10-second add when using Rhapsody (for which I gratefully thank you!). It really helps us to know which version we have…thanks!

  22. Hi there, and thanks for taking in feedback for version 3! here’s some suggestions:
    1. – Add 160bpm to the bit rate options
    2. – Although a user can’t edit the song name & title while it’s being recorded, it would be nice to be able to enter the data anyway and have ReplayMusic “hold it” and then when the song is over have it update it on the music file itself. Perhaps it could display the text on the player in italic text while the song is being recorded and then switch back to normal text after the song is finished and the tag is updated.
    3. – Give skin options for the player.
    Thanks again.
