Looking for a program to capture audio streams

Hey there! I've been using Zorin 16.3 Pro for a couple of months now, and I'm loving the experience so far. After switching from Microsoft Windows, I haven't missed it one bit. The customization options are great, and I've been able to set up my desktop just the way I like it. The only thing I miss is being able to record audio streams from the internet, like streaming radio stations. I used to use Total Recorder on Windows to capture everything that could be heard as audio. I've heard about WINE, but I haven't had a chance to look into it yet, and I've run into some problems with it before. So, I was wondering if there's a program that can do the same thing under Zorin as Total Recorder does under Windows. If anyone knows of such a program, I'd love to hear about it. Thanks!

I haven't used anything of the sort, but maybe this article helps:


PulseAudio - Ubuntu Wiki contains instructions for recording an audio stream at the level of PulseAudio; consequently, this method ought to function without regard to the capabilities of the sound card.

It appears to be useful to introduce dauntlessness, rosegarden, pavucontrol, paprefs and padevchooser.

Simply install "PulseAudio volume control" from Software.

Yes, indeed, now that I have figured out how to do it, it is pretty straightforward. I managed to get everything working under Audio Recorder and Audacity, and I have to say, it works great! I just wanted to thank all of you for your help and guidance. Thank you very much! Case closed now.
