Sound Capture Utility Updated

Black Cat Systems has updated their powerful sound recording utility, Audiocorder, to version 2.0. Audiocorder allows users to use their Mac as a sophisticated sound recording studio, and the new version allows users to record phone conversations using their internal modem. According to Black Cat Systems:

Black Cat Systems has released version2.0.0 of Audiocorder. This version adds the ability to record telephonecomversations using your internal modem, with no exra hardware required.

Audiocorder is a program which allows your Mac to act as a sophisticatedaudio recorder. In one mode, it operates as a volume operated (VOX) audiorecorder. This allows you to set the volume that the sound must reach tobegin recording, and the volume at which it should end recording. It alsoallows you to set the trigger length for the start and stop values, whichhelps you to eliminate recording short bursts of sound or ending therecording process during a short pause (such as in normal speach).

Audiocorder may also be programed with a recording schedule, specifyingwhen it should start and stop recording, much like a VCR.

It may also be used as a normal manually operated recorder. In addition, itcan play AIFF sound files, including those created with other soundprograms.

Finally, Audiocorder can record telephone conversations, using just yourinternal modem.

Each sound file is stored in AIFF format, a Macintosh standard soundformat. The audio is sampled at 11, 22 or 44 kHz, with a sample size of 8or 16 bits, either monophonic or stereo. The name of each file contains thedate and time (down to seconds) the recording began.

Audiocorder is available for US$20. You can find more information at the Black Cat Systems web site.
