Introduction

Is it possible to "convert" DRM protected WMA files? Technically, no. In many cases, it is illegal to circumvent Microsoft's protection in order to convert WMA files protected with Digital Rights Management (DRM). However, there are many legitimate reasons for wanting to convert these protected files, and many feel they should be able to do so. Free Audio Editor provides an audio recorder that can be used as a DRM Protected WMA Converter to record DRM protected WMA files while they are being played in Windows Media Player. The audio recorder can save audio directly to MP3, unprotected WMA (using any desired profile), WAV (using any compression codec), OGG, and more. Now, download and install Free Audio Editor then enjoy your amazing recording!

Step 1: Active Recording Window

Launch Free Audio Editor. Click "New Record" to choose recording sample rate & channels and click "OK" to activate audio recording window.
