Black Cat Systems Releases Audiocorder 5.0.0
WESTMINSTER, MD (March 7, 2007) – Black Cat Systems announces that
Audiocorder version 5.0.0 has been released. This version adds native
support for Intel Macs as a Universal Binary.
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
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
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
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
