    TotalRecorder works great. It will record anything you hear and in the case of steaming audio will stop recording when there is no sound (eliminates any momentary gaps that may occur). It will also stop after the stream is finished. Nice for unattended recording (with others you have to stop them manually). Sounds can be saved as wavs or mp3.

    One quirk though, under settings it's best to put the audo settings back to your SC when you aren't using it (from the through Total recorder play/record settings) as some games won't work right.

    But you don't really need it unless you need more then one channel to record on.

    Somehow Cool Edit Pro seems like overkill for someone who has asked for an alternative to Sound Recorder. :D

    I just happen to be a CEP user, but that's why I mentioned audacity too, it's nice and simple (and multi-platform :) )
