Previously it was very difficult to record streaming music, but now Audacity has made it easier. Let me take you through the steps required to record streaming music and internet radio using free software Audacity.

Download Audacity First, you have to download Audacity. This is a freeware and some of you may have already heard about it. Audacity is a safe software and does not install any tool bar or change your home page of your web browser during installation.

A list of recording options that are available in your system will be displayed in this box and there will be an item called Stereo Mix. There are chances that this may not be enabled in your computer. Just right click on it and click Enable. Now, click ok and close all the dialog boxes. We are ready to record our music.
