Record iTunes Radio streams with doubleTwist’s latest app

Remember the days of camping out in front of your tape deck waiting to hit record the moment your favorite song comes on the radio? Things are a lot different in 2014, but perhaps doubleTwist can help you recapture a small bit of that nostalgia with their new AirPlay Recorder app for Mac.

The app is described as giving users “the ability to save iTunes audio streams for offline playback.” Perhaps more accurately it’s a modern tape deck for internet radio. Simply load up an iTunes Radio stream, set the app as an AirPlay device, and hit play to begin ripping audio for later playback.

We’re sure Apple and the record companies won’t be too happy with the app’s ability to more or less pirate music, but we need only look at the old school example of the tape deck and FM radio for clarity. The record industry has historically had little concern for folks making personal copies of songs from the radio. Sentiments have shifted slightly with digital files and ease of distribution, but that’s for doubleTwist to worry about.

AirPlay Recorder is available now for $9.99. Not necessarily cheap up front, but rip ten tracks from a radio stream and it practically pays for itself.
