Thanks for info!  ;)  My file was labeled as 2011-05-1X - now I know what X is.  ;D

Great to collect info about u2.com streams, but what about other sites? What about official stream of Pasadena concert? Some versions slightly vary from official DVD/BD.

I'm going to reach out here...
I'm a fully paid-up subscriber to u2.com but missed Soon when it was streaming - a two-day window isn't much! I'm wondering about the original unmodified "numbered" mp3 that was streamed - as Aaron said, not intended for download on the surface, but if you know what you're doing...
I know it's on YouTube, etc, but you know it's not the same:)
Here's hoping...

Bono's backing vocals appear on both Path To Zero (Radio Edit) and Path To Zero (Collage) found here. Neither track appears on the Path To Zero album, just the longer full version. They are 320 kbps MP3. A direct download link won't work, but I was able to grab them from my Safari cache.

Hello --

What program do you use in order to rip the streaming audio? For video I use Download Helper for Firefox, but I haven't been able to find a nice one for audio files. The ones I've used had less-than-stellar results...

Thanks for your help!

I use an app called Audio Hijack Pro. But even the free version Audio Hijack should do the job. I believe it gives you the option of recording in an uncompressed format like .wav but only under 10 minutes each time. Which should be fine for a couple songs. But look it up to be sure.

I use Replay Media Catcher to capture audio streams. It captures the stream digitally in its native format rather than recording it so there's no loss of quality.

Thanks a lot!

I will give both a try, but I think Brad's tip is closer to what I was looking for. Got a bit disappointed due to some apps that recorded the file with bad results.

Streams on u2.com are delivered by HTTP. They are simple to save once you have the URL. I use a program called URL Snooper to get the URL. Then, any download manager should be able to download the file. The Firefox Add-on DownThemAll is my choice.

I'm still annoyed I missed Soon :(

Sounds like Bono says "Wembley Stadium" at 5:53, so either 08/14/2009 or 08/15/2009?

Awesome.  Finally a track that won't be on the CD.  Speaking of which, an announcement about U22 is supposedly coming later today (16 May)... we shall see.
