"2.2 works fine on BW G3 OSX 10.3.9"

February 17, 2007  |  By Russ Shiells

 |  Version: Audio Recorder 2.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Just a really simple way to copy all my old LPs onto CD's and into iTunes. All the tracks became one file (because I recorded a whole side at a time) but thats not a problem for me. All I had to buy was a $5 adapter... Mic plug on one side and 2 cables from the turntable fit on the other. It works, its basic, and its free. I tried a few other programs but most were either confusing or crashed the old G3. When I go to 10.4 I will try v.3.1

"Any Way To Get Older Version for 10.2.8?"

January 13, 2007  |  By nhollywoodcat

 |  Version: Audio Recorder 3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I love 3.1 but would like to install an earlier version like 1.3 on an old iBook with 10.2.8 that I don't plan to upgrade. When I select 1.3 from the drop-down menu of previous versions, then click "Download 1.3", it defaults me to Ben's page and to version 3.1. Would really like to know a way to get back to 1.3 if anyone has it. Thanks!

"Keep it Simple"

October 31, 2006  |  By cinthiamac

 |  Version: Audio Recorder 3.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
First, thank you for making the Universal Version. Second, despite feature requests from others, I'm begging you to keep this app simple. There are so many bloated recording programs for all levels of audio recording, we don't need another. I am a professional songwriter and am familiar with most of the programs from simple to the most complicated. I find an abundance of software for "technically minded" people but creative types like me, believe it or not, are often still walking around with a pen and paper or a cassette recorder. Creativity is hampered when a person must stop to adjust and tweak the controls of his hardware OR software. I have a friend who won an Academy Award for a screenplay who used a simple word processor so he could focus on his ideas rather than operating the software. I was nominated for a Grammy for a song that came to me playing scrabble with my children - and recorded over the phone to my answering machine. Point is, people need an easy way to record creative ideas quickly, before they are lost.
THANK YOU for this simple software that does just that.

Thanks for your app. The new design is great. The only thing I'm begging for is a balance control now ...

Summary

i just needed to record some of my cell phone messages and cubase and logic (which i have) are too bulky for such a simple task. i tried audacity's 1.3 beta but it wasn't picking up my phone signal (which is odd since this lovely opensource program had worked in previous releases- but this is a beta release afterall) and garageband (which i've used for this task before) wasn't initializing properly so i started sniffing around online for something simple to do the job and voila! not only did this program do a good job on the first try, but the interface is simple, and to top it all off it's freeware! thank you so much for developing this. i recomend it to all users looking to record simple mp3 & mp4 recordings. :-)

"Great work"

May 28, 2006  |  By jrc Software

 |  Version: Audio Recorder 3.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The best kind of app: Does one thing and does it well.

I don't get why Audio Recorder can record to AAC but not MP3 without additionally installing a separate framework (not that hard to do, but still). QuickTime has both encoders.

The UI suffers from some weirdness. When you press Stop, it effectively performs Save As. If you hit Save, it asks if you want to replace; if you hit Cancel, it asks if you want to delete. This is because the file is already on disk.

Also, Audio Recorder is apparently a single window application, even though the File menu makes you believe that it's document-based, with its full array of commands: New, Open, Save, Print (?), etc. I would suggest removing everything except Close (see Apple's Calculator and Dictionary apps).

But overall, I still think this is a stellar app. It's small, it's free, and it does the job well.
