Griffin Technology, Inc. has released a new beta version of Final Vinyl, bringing it to version 0.7. Final Vinyl is an audio recording app designed for transferring audio from vinyl records to a users system. The latest version features automatically adjusting audio levels and cue marking for track seperations. According to Griffin Technology:
Griffin Technology, Inc. today announced the release of Final Vinyl beta version 0.7, a free music application that allows users to easily record their collection of old vinyl records using just the Griffin iMic and their turntable.
Final Vinyl beta version 0.7 introduces several new features that make recording old albums easier. One illustration of this is Cue Marking. Once a user has recorded an entire side of an album, they often have the tedious task of finding and separating out each song into individual files to burn to a CD. Using Cue Marking, a user can set all the beginning and ending points of songs and have Final Vinyl manage the separation of each song into individual files ready to burn to a CD.
Another feature new in Beta 0.7 is the option to allow Final Vinyl to dynamically set and adjust audio levels automatically. This handy feature ensures that the recording level of the source music is always properly adjusted to its optimum point. This greatly increases the quality of the recordings being made and helps control the noise floor of scratchy old records.
