HarddiskOgg favicon


On-the-fly-line-in-to-Ogg Vorbis/Wave/Monkeys Audio/MP3-encoding. HarddiskOgg takes a wave input stream from any Windows 95/98/2000/XP compatible sampling device (including microphone input and line in) and converts it to an Ogg Vorbis/Wave/Monkeys Audio/MP3 (optional) stream. This happens in realtime, so basically it is a harddisk recorder in Ogg Vorbis.


  • Real-time encoding with bitrates from 32kbit/sec. up to 320kbit/sec.
  • Stereo or mono recording from 8kHz to 48kHz
  • Automatic numbering of output files
  • Can be placed in the systray and activated by a single click
  • Smart on-the-fly normalization for low-volume sources
  • Uses the high quality, patent free Ogg Vorbis encoding engine. Ogg Vorbis easily outperforms MP3 in sound quality, especially at lower bit rates.
  • LAME MP3 encoder compatible. However, due to patent issues HarddiskOgg ist not distributed with the LAME encoding DLL. If you want MP3 support, fetch LAME_ENC.DLL from the web, but make sure you have the appropriate rights for doing so.
  • Command line mode for easy integration or scheduled recordings
  • No fuss or stupid skinned interface, just works.
  • HarddiskOgg is FREEWARE!
