Summary

Chrome Audio Capture is a Chrome extension that allows users to record any audio playing on the current tab. Multiple tabs can be recorded simultaneously. Recordings can be saved as either .mp3 or .wav files. Users will have the option to mute tabs that are currently being recorded.

To begin recording on a tab simply click on the extension icon and use the interface or hotkeys to start and stop the recording.

Note: Currently recordings are limited to 20 minutes due to Chrome memory constraints. Limit can be bypassed, but it is not recommended as more testing is required to determine the maximum time for lower quality settings.
