In the new version 2020, the stream-recording software Audials can now record HiRes streams, such as Tidal's "master" files, with 96 kHz clock rate in FLAC format - unencrypted, of course.
In the previous versions, only a maximum clock frequency of 44.1 kHz could be set. Some new streaming services have also been added, but Qobuz is not yet included. Nevertheless, Audials can record from all sources, only the exact cut at the song boundaries and the amount of metadata is optimized with the predefined streaming services. For video recordings in full HD, the manufacturer promises the highest picture quality, higher speeds for music downloads and numerous new convenience functions. The product range has also become clearer: In addition to the full version "Audials One" (50 Euro), which includes all functions, "Audials Music" is available for recording music streaming services, "Audials Movie" for recording video streams and TV shows and "Audials Radio" for recording radio stations and podcasts - for 25 Euro each. All Audials versions are available for Windows only and are now available for free trial download. The recordings are completely legal - after all, the company is not based on the Cayman Islands, but in Karlsruhe and could be prosecuted by the labels at any time if it were to violate their rights.
