Sound Leech is an application that captures sound from other programs. Contrary to most solutions which involve emulation drivers, SoundLeech runs as a simple application and captures sound from the applications themselves, rather than "what you hear".

With SoundLeech, you can finally obtain a digital copy of streaming audio, create a ringtone from that awesome in-game sound effect or... well, if you have particular interests, let us know.


Download the evaluation version now:

This installer supports Windows 2000 and all later versions, fully supporting 64-bit versions of XP and Vista. Just run the installer after downloading it. If required, it will download and install the .NET framework. An uninstall item will be added to Control Panel - Add/Remove programs.


When you start up SoundLeech, it displays an icon in the task bar near the clock. Right-click this icon to access the menu which contains the settings and activation. It will remember every setting for the next time you start it.

To start recording, choose a capture folder first. The default is the "My Documents" folder. Then select "Start capture" from the menu. Next, start the program(s) you wish to capture audio from. When it detects a program that is playing audio, you will see a balloon pop up for about 10 seconds which shows the name of the program.

Recordings are stored in the capture folder. For each program it detects, it creates a sub-folder here and writes the intercepted audio into separate WAV files.

Before playing back such a recording, remember to de-activate SoundLeech, or it will capture another copy from the playback program.
