Soundtap stops recording after a few minutes

Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased Soundtag but am a little disappointed with the results. After starting a recording the sound source stops and Soundtap stops recording after only a few minutes. Once I close down the SoundTap  the sound source ie Youtube starts again. At first I thought this might be some limitation with YouTube to prevent piracy but the same also applies to other video smade by myself or any others sound source.  I am running  Mac OS 10.15.4 and Soundtag V6.06

I just want to be clear, you say ¨After starting a recording the sound source stops and SoundTap stops recording after only a few minutes.¨. If I understand correctly, then this to me seems like normal behavior. SoundTap will only record when it detects a sound stream, if the stream stops at any point so will SoundTap.

Hi yes I understand that it stops recording once the sound source stops. However the sound source (whatever it is, ie YouTube or something else playing) plays perfectly well for as long as....until I try to record it with ST then after a few minutes its stops. Only to start again once I close down ST.

It would be nice to have the option to record all the time. I try to record my DJ sets but it stops randomly, it's very annoying because I never know whether or not it is recording.

Yep Same problem with me. Fed up, will delete and get something else

If this is for mac, there is currently a bug with the program running in MAC OS Big Sur and their developers are working on finding a solution. If you have a windows PC then you might want to create support tickets in the link below to get assistance from the NCh technical Support team:  



@Musicman 1281 * SoundTap complies with Microsoft's DRM signed driver model and will not record streams if a DRM player is used and if the stream is marked as DRM copy-protected.

Spotify uses DRM, so SoundTap will not record.
