Black Cat Systems Releases Audiocorder 4.9.0
WESTMINSTER, MD (October 26, 2006) – Black Cat Systems announces that
Audiocorder version 4.9.0 has been released. This version adds the
ability to play back the previously recorded file, options to add
extensions to the filenames of automated recordings, as well as
several improvements to the audio file playback window.
Audiocorder is a program which allows your Mac to act as a
sophisticated audio recorder. In one mode, it operates as a volume
operated (VOX) automated audio recorder. This allows you to set the
volume that the sound must reach to begin recording, and the volume
at which it should end recording. It also allows you to set the
trigger length for the start and stop values, which helps you to
eliminate recording short bursts of sound or ending the recording
process during a short pause (such as in normal speech). This allows
Audiocorder to function as an automated and unattended recorder.
Audiocorder may also be programmed with a recording schedule,
specifying when it should start and stop recording, much like a VCR.
In addition, you can performed a timed recording, specifying how long
the recording period should last.
It may also be used as a normal manually operated recorder. A button
is included to stop recording to one file and start recording to
another, making it easy to manually split an album or CD into
individual files, one for each song or track.
Audiocorder buffers incoming sound, allowing you to click a button
and record a sound event that has already occurred.
Each sound file is stored in AIFF format, a Macintosh standard sound
format. The audio is sampled at 11, 22 or 44 kHz, with a sample size
of 8 or 16 bits, either monophonic or stereo. The name of each file
contains the date and time (down to seconds) the recording began.
Files may also be recorded in WAVE format, as well as automatically
converted to mp3 format using iTunes.
In addition, it can play back AIFF, WAVE, and mp3 sound files,
including those created with other sound programs.
Audiocorder can record telephone calls using the internal modem on
many Mac models. (This requires that the internal modem audio be
routed to the sound input device, which some Mac models do not do.)
Audiocorder is used in a wide variety of applications, including
digitizing LPs and tapes, recording animals and other natural sounds,
and automated recording of radio transmissions.
Three versions of Audiocorder are available, one for Mac OS X/Carbon,
one for other PowerPC systems, and one for older 68k systems.
Audiocorder is priced at just $19.99, and may be downloaded from the
Black Cat Systems creates and distributes Macintosh software, with a
specific emphasis on programs for the audio, scientific, amateur
radio, and health markets.
