    Hello, I have some .m4a files (audio only) that may expire soon; these are lecture audios, and I need to use it till end of next month.

    Could someone tell me a free program that can record sound output from these .m4a files? Each recording needs to last about 3 to 4 hrs. And I'd like keep the file size to around 20-40 mb as the original. Thanks.

    Thanks you guys; I tried the recording programs, and most of the time the output files seem a little too big.

    I think if I could remove the DRM on the m4a by converting it to mp3 that would be easiest, since it is 19 files in total

    If I converted my m4a to mp3 using generic programs found on google, would the converted mp3 files for sure not expire (DRM removed) and be working? Thanks.

    (because if not I probably just try to manually record all 19 of them)

    (Update: using Tunebite 7 to "re-record" the audio files; I'm not sure, but hopefully this removes any sort of expiration or rental-license? on it. If anyone has used Tunebite 7 and can confirm that'd be great too)
