Griffin Technology, Inc. has released a public beta version of Final Vinyl. Final Vinyl is an audio recording app designed for transferring audio from vinyl records to a users system. The app works in tandem with the Griffin Tech iMic and ships with several other features including an adjustable equalizer. According to Griffin Technology:
Griffin Technology, Inc. today announced the first beta release of Final Vinyl, an OS X only audio application that allows users to easily record their collection of old vinyl records using just the Griffin iMic and their turntable.
Previously users wishing to record their old record collection had to hook up their entire stereo system just to power their turntable. Now users can connect the record player directly to their iMic, and using Final Vinyl record and save all their old albums. They can then make them into CDs, MP3s etc.
Final Vinyl does more than just record old albums; it is a fully functional general audio recording application as well. It can be used to record instruments, microphones and reel-to-reel tapes plugged into the iMic. It includes a 10-band Equalizer that is capable of significantly altering and enhancing a users sound input. For example, inexpensive microphones could be improved by tweaking the base response. Old worn records can be fine tuned and tonally corrected. All this and more can be done using the completely free Final Vinyl combined with the Griffin iMic.
You can find more information about the Final Vinyl release at the Griffin Technology, Inc. Web site. Final Vinyl is available as freeware, and the iMic is available for US$35.00.
