StationRipper is a digital media recorder application developed by Ratajik Software for recording ("Ripping") on Microsoft Windows operating system.

It can record Shoutcast streams, stations, and Podcasts. The free version can record two simultaneous streams. The paid-for versions can record up to 600 simultaneous streams.

Using information brought down in the various streams, it is able to split each song up by Band and Song name into a individual file. The resulting files have the correct ID3 and ID3v2.4 tags set, and are unhindered. It can also download the songs album art, saving to a separate file or embedded in the MP3

Integration into iTunes is built in - songs recorded can automatically be placed on a iTunes playlist, which in turn can be automatically synchronized to a iPod (iTunes radio stations can also be recorded). The software also supports integration with MediaMonkey, MSN Messenger, and Twitter

StationRipper is available in a freeware version as well as a paid version ("Silver" and "Gold" licenses). It uses the Microsoft Access format for its library. The software embeds Microsoft Internet Explorer]] in the main window. The user interacts with various web pages, and the software captures certain actions, tells the browser to ignore the action, and then acts on it itself (e.g., clicking a record button that is a URL to a station on a web page starts recording, instead of playing the stream in the browser).
