Record, Edit, Export to iTunes. It’s the easiest and most intuitive way to record internet radio.

Listen to your Favorite Radio

With its high-performance database, Snowtape is able to store thousands of radio stations for you to choose from. You can search for a particular station or sort the list by e.g. genre and bandwidth. You can also add any radio station onto your favorites list to help you quickly find the right station for your current mood.

Instantly Record the Program

Snowtape is able to cut the recordings at audio track boundaries automatically. Snowtape can identify potential commercials or interludes. With the built-in track editor you can cut out any interfering audio you do not wish to be exported.

1-Click Export to iTunes

Simply click the "Export to iTunes" button and the audio track is encoded to high quality AAC audio and saved right into your iTunes. Album artwork and track titles are automatically exported as iTunes Audio Tags and get incorporated directly into the audio track during export.

Import Internet Playlists

Snowtape can import .PLS and .M3U internet playlist files as well as .Webloc URL files. Simply drop your files onto the radio list or choose "Import Files" from the application menu. You can also provide Snowtape playlist or stream URLs. Snowtape checks every URL and only imports those that work.

Drag & Drop iTunes Radio

As a bonus, Snowtape also understands items coming directly from iTunes.

radioshift supports program listing schedules and the ability to subscribe and record from the radio station's schedules so you can set it up to automatically download your favourite radio broadcast every time it airs. http://osx.iusethis.com/app/radioshift

It looks like their support form leads directly to dev/null.

Too many free ones out there to list...save your money.

Great UI, bad quality recordings.
I tried this attracted by the well designes UI but found out this software is indeed a "recorder": it plays the radio stations and records the audio output as uncompressed AIFF files, instead of capturing the original MP3 or AAC audio losslessly. That means you would need to recompress the audio if you want to keep it as MP3 or AAC with the obvious quality loss.

@ beringse:
Snowtape won't be free when it will come out of beta. And the price will be around $29, as you may read in the developer's website. (I'll stick with FStream.)

Thanks for the great app!

I'm using this app since the first beta and it gets better and better with each release. Once started with it, you won't use iTunes for internet radio anymore. Promised.
