Audio Recorder-Windows 10


New Member
Hello All!

I just recently changed over from iOS to Windows and it has not been a smooth transition. I bought a Surface Pro 4 a couple days ago for the main purpose of recording audio during lecture at the same time taking notes on OneNote. This seemed like a very simple thing to accomplish. I was wrong. Every single time the audio recorder app is minimized or I change over to write on OneNote it would pause the recording. This was the case for every single audio recorder I tried from Windows Store. Now, you might suggest using a third-party like Audacity. I tried this, but I found that I would have to export every audio file and save it into One Drive. This is just too tedious to do everyday for 4 different classes. It is also too complex of a program for what I'm trying to accomplish. You might also suggest to use the audio recorder on OneNote. Well, there is another problem to this. The software crashes every time I try to playback the audio. Also, I cannot easily extract the audio since the .wma files are saved in randomly generated .bin files. To be honest, I didn't spend $1000 for a whole lot of inconveniences.

If anyone can give me any tips or suggestions on what I should do about this. I am so desperate. I might just return this and get an iPad and easily execute these simple tasks. I just want a simple audio recorder software/app that can be easily sync with OneDrive and be used simultaneously with OneNote.

Thank you for your time.

Thats your best best as wx is still in betta and onenote | onedrive never worked from day one because Microsoft wants it to be a Microsoft only thing that doesn't sync well (at all) with other 3rd party software.
