RadioTracker, a groundbreaking new tool for music lovers, will enable users to download for free and compile playlists of favourite tracks legally from internet radio stations.

The topic of downloading music online has been the centre of much debate in recent times, but now building a comprehensive MP3 library has never been simpler. The software device sits on your desktop and works in the background compiling a collection of tracks from artists pre-determined according to genre. These tracks are ‘cut’ from a choice of over 8000 internet radio stations provided by the SHOUTCAST distribution network.

Having selected the genre of music that appeals from a choice of 77 (Pop, rock, jazz, classical), RadioTracker then records all the tracks from stations broadcasting that type of genre. All tracks are recorded at a uniform volume with filters ensuring all adverts and jingles are removed from the recordings and ‘fading’ applied between tracks. If a track is duplicated, RadioTracker will automatically select the better version.

RadioTracker records all tracks in MP3 format including the ID-3 tags, which provide the track title, artist name and album, plus the CD covers. Users can also listen to stations whilst recording.

The interface is very easy to use with some simple additional download options:

· Select the bit rate [connection speed] to ensure the best possible quality
· Limit the volume of data downloaded by Megabyte to match storage capacity
· Select the amount of time in hours to download

Beneath the interface a drop-down screen shows the radio station, track title, size, bit rate and other information. Right clicking on any station allows several actions including:

· Add to and deleting from [if previously selected] favourite stations
· Listen to the station
· Stop listening to the station
· Rip this station or remove station from server list

Advanced functions include the ability to administer Favourites, include and exclude artists or title and add a radio station by typing in the URL.

RadioTracker is priced £19.99 and available from along with a free trial version.

Minimum system requirements include a Pentium II Processor and above with Broadband Connection.
