Audio Recorder is an amazing tool for Linux that allows you to record your favourite music and audio to a file. It can record audio from your system's sound card, microphones, browsers, webcams & more. Put simply, if it plays out of your loudspeakers you can record it. This can also record your Skype-calls automatically.
