You have to set the control options in the record tab to record “Unbounded”.  This will allow the recording to keep going until you stop it manually.

I’m still learning it also, just started.

Do you know how to get it to record more than 30 seconds?

Even when I type in 3 minutes in the new audio file, it stops on it’s own in 30 seconds.

Hi,

I would like to know if there is a keyboard shortcut to record with GoldWave.

I've looked in the manual and it mentions recording, but it does not give a keyboard command to start.

I've tried file and new, but that did not do anything.

I'm trying to record streaming audio.

Thanks.

 

Glenn
