Record Streaming Audio with Audio Recorder

I just became aware of this great program for recording streaming audio. It comes bundled in Ubuntu Mate 16.04 Beta 1.

Audio Recorder is an amazing audio recording program, this small tool allows user to record audio from microphones, webcams, system sound card, media player or web browser & etc. It can save recording in various formats listed: Ogg, Mp3, Flac, Wav (22khz), Wav (44khz) and Spx.

It allows to use sound source system card, microphone, audio/video player, any application (like: Skype calls with any user interaction) and user defined program for recording. It also can be configured to stop recording if output file limit is reached to user requirement. Audio threshold is supported by this program, which can record audio on sound/voice and stop/pause when silence (user can set up threshold and delay as per requirements). Additionally you can setup an timer manually within the audio recorder program to schedule recordings and the program will start/stop/pause recording at given time. Panel indicator support for Ubuntu, from where user can easily access some options like: show/hide window, start/stop recording and open recording location.
