Tkrecord is a tiny sound recorder for Linux that uses arecord and aplay as a backend, but gives them a Tkinter GUI. It saves the sound in the mp3 format using lame.

What makes tkrecord good is:

  • it is tiny (compared to audacity for example)
  • you start recording a new sound with SPACE and stop with SPACE, no need to go through a menu or to give your sound a name (the default is a number). JUST RECORD!
  • you can easily play, rename and remove recorded sounds
  • it saves recorded mp3s to a specific directory (by default)
  • few lines of code and low level of abstraction → easy to understand and modify
