Audiocorder For Mac Publisher's description
from Black Cat Systems
Audiocorder is a sophisticated yet easy to use audio recording program for your Macintosh.
With the click of a button, you can record from any audio source that you connect to your Mac, through a microphone or a direct cable connection. Audiocorder makes it easy to record music, as well as make spoken recordings. And it can automatically transfer recordings to iTunes, to add them to playlists, or convert to mp3 format.
First, it can work like a standard tape audio recorder. You simply click on the start button to begin sound recording, and the stop button to end recording. You can even click on a single button to stop the current recording, and start the next. Perfect for manually breaking an entire album or CD into individual tracks.
You can have each sound recording stored in a separate file, or they can all be sequentially stored in one file.
Second, Audiocorder works like a VCR - you can program when it should start and stop recording. You can also perform a timed recording - tell Audiocorder to record for so many seconds.
Third, Audiocorder can work like a VOX (voice operated) 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, eliminating dead air when there is no sound. This allows Audiocorder to function as an automated and unattended recorder.
The Voice VOX feature attempts to distinguish between "real" audio, such as speech and music, as compared to static, making it easier to record off of shortwave radio, etc.
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).
Finally, Audiocorder works as a telephone call recorder under Mac OS 9 and OS X! Using just your internal modem, you can record telephone conversations. This should work with many internal modems, but be sure to test it out on yours. It doesn't work on all Mac models. (Be sure to check with your local regulations regarding recording such calls) Note, this will not work on iBooks and Cubes, as these models do not have analog sound input capabilities.
One other suggestion is to try one of the adapters sold to plug a tape recorder into a phone line, and plug the connector that normally would plug into the tape recorder into the microphone jack on your Mac. Radio Shack sells these adapters, as do other electronics stores do as well.
Audiocorder is perfect for many applications, such as:
* Digitizing a record album or tape. Each song will be stored as its own file, ready for you to burn onto a CD, etc.
* Recording telephone conversations.
* Recording audio from a scanner or other radio. Rather than recording lots of dead air, only periods with audio will be recorded.
* Recording sounds from nature, such as birds.
* Automated recording of radio programs.
