You can program scheduled recordings to let Audials record a certain radio station at a given time, automatically. (please note, in order to get your schedule recording started, you must have both the operating system and Audials turned on, not shut down, also check that the sleep setting is disabled, otherwise the recording won't start!)
Step-by-Step: Scheduling a radio recording
- Browse through the list of radio stations, and select the one that you would like to schedule a recording for.
- Click in the toolbar, and then click "Create scheduled recording..."
- Choose between one-time and weekly repeated recording.
Once: Enter a date.
Repeat on: Select on which weekdays to repeat the recording.
- Enter begin and end of the scheduled recording.
Audials starts and ends recording the station at the given date and time. The recording is saved as a continuous recording, as well as individual songs, if the station's record ability allows for automatic song cutting.
Be aware that your Audials has to be started with at least 5 minutes before the schedule recording would start, otherwise the recording will fail. If you would set your schedule recording to start in 2 minutes and you close Audials the recording will fail. But if you would set the recording to start in 10 minutes and your Audials is closed, this should have enough time to start (you can check this also in your Windows Task Scheduler). Audials needs at least 5 minutes before the scheduled time to start and prepare for the recording.
