IntroductionThere are many legitimate reasons for wanting to convert DRM protected WMA files, and many feel they should be able to do so. Free Audio Editor features a professional audio recorder to record these protected files as they are being played in Windows Media Player. After recording, the recorder saves audio directly to MP3, unprotected WMA (using any desired profile), WAV (using any compression codec), OGG and more.

Step 2. Choose Sound Source and Sound CardChoose a proper sound card and select the sound source in your system. The names of the sound source to record streaming audios maybe different in various operating systems, usually named as Stereo Mix, Phone Line, Aux Volume, Video Volume, Mic Volume, Line In, CD Audio and so on.
Tips: If you do not choose the correct sound source, no audio signal would be detected or recorded even if you can hear it.
Step 3. Adjust Recording SettingsStart to play the audio file you want to record and you can see wave variations in the wave pattern. Drag slider to adjust the recording volume. Set a specific time by clicking "Timer Record" to automatically start recording. You also have the power to record without silence.
Tips: If the volume is too low, you can see only very small variations in the wave pattern. If the sound is being clipped off because the volume is too high, move the volume setting down until most of the volume range is displayed without clipping.
