How to Use Our MP3 Grabber

Remember that catchy song from a viral ad someone sent you the other day? You can easily save it as an MP3 – just get yourself a decent music grabber.

Movavi Screen Recorder is exactly what you need: it’s one of the best tools you can find to extract audio from videos, save webinars and online streams, and rip any kind of audio from websites or applications.

Download the audio grabber for Windows (Windows 10/8/7) or Mac (Mac OS X 10.9 or higher) and learn how to grab audio in just a few simple steps.

  • Step 1. Install and Run Movavi’s Sound Grabber

    Launch the installer and follow the instructions on your screen. After the installation is complete, click the Start button in the installation window to launch the program.

  • Step 2. Adjust the Settings

    First, position the capture area frame over the area in which the video element will play. Adjust the capture frame by dragging its edges.

    It’s best to make sure that the System Audio icon is active (marked green) and Microphone is not – otherwise the sound from your microphone will interfere with the grabbing process.

  • Step 3. Grab Your Audio Segment

    Hit the REC button, and the program will launch the process. You can pause or stop the grab by clicking the appropriate buttons on the control panel. Alternatively, use the F9 and F10 hotkeys if you have Windows; ⌥ ⌘ 1 and ⌥ ⌘ 2 if you use a Mac.

  • Step 4. Convert the File to the MP3 Format

    Click the Save As button on the right. In the dialog box, select MP3 as the output format. Set the destination folder and click Save.

How to Use a Limited Sound Grabber

Another option for grabbing audio is to use a free recording program such as SoundTap. This software let you capture any sound playing on your computer, but it has one major downside – there’s no screen recording capability. But if you need a simple MP3 grabber to record an internal sound from your computer, give it a try.

  • Step 1. Install the Program

    Download the installation file to your computer and install the program following the onscreen guide. Launch the recorder once the installation is complete.

  • Step 2. Specify the Settings

    To adjust the settings, click the Options button. In the new window, set the destination folder for your recordings, choose the output format (files can be saved in WAV or MP3 only), and select the sound input device. Click OK to save the settings.

  • Step 3. Start Recording

    Click the Start Recording button. The program will start capturing as soon as you turn on the audio you want to grab. To finish capturing, click the Stop Recording button. You will find your recorded audio file in the folder you selected earlier.
