How to Convert DRM Protected WMA?


Tired of being limited by DRM copy-protection? Freemore Audio Recorder can easily convert your copy-protected music to unprotected audio files by recording them while they are being played.

Step 1. Select Recording Device & Sound Source

Launch Freemore Audio Recorder. Click "Show Mixer Window" button (1) to select the sound card (2) in your system and choose "Stereo Mix (SoundMAX Intergrated)" (3) as sound source. You can adjust the Volume (4) & Balance (5).

Select Recording Device & Sound Source

Step 2. Adjust Recording Settings

Click "Options" (1) and a window will be activated. In "General Settings" tab, you can specify an output format among MP3, WAV, WMA and OGG (2). Click "Settings" (3) to adjust the recording quality by well-configured presets or configuration parameters. Click "Change" (4) to select an output folder. Other settings like AGC, VAS, Hot Key and Schedule are also available.

Step 3. Start Recording

After everything is set, just play the DRM protected WMA files that you want to record. Then you can see wave variations in the wave pattern. If the volume is too low, you can see only very small variations in the wave pattern. If the sound is being clipped off because the volume is too high, move the volume setting down until most of the volume range is displayed without clipping.

Click the red round record button (1) in Freemore Audio Recorder or press the hotkey you just set to start recording. Click "Stop Recording" (2) to stop the recording and the recorded sound will be directly output to the output folder. Click "Show file list window" (3) and you will see the detailed information of the recording like filename, location, time, duration & size. You can play the recording with the built-in player.
