OpD2d - Direct to disk audio recorder

This is a very simple little audio recording application. It can be used to easily record anything you can get into your soundcard direct onto your hard disk. You might also have noticed that it's got a bit of an odd interface.

It was originally written to make use of the Yamaha SW1000 XG soundcard's ability to record the digital audio that it's playing. This is a really useful feature that combined with this app means I can record streaming audio from the internet direct to my hard disk, then burn it onto CD.

It now turns out that this feature is built into Windows XP. So anyone with a Windows PC can record audio to their heart's content.

Now with MP3 support!

OpD2d now supports recording direct to disk in MP3 format. Can you guess who got an iPod recently?
