Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Audio Recorder is a nice software for recording music to audio files. It is capable of using the system’s card, microphone, and other devices with microphone. As output, it has support for the most popular audio formats, like: OGG, FLAC, MP3 or WAV.
The latest version available is Audio Recorder 1.5.4, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:
- Fixed autostart by deleting the file when autostart is set OFF.
- Fixed compatibility bug in configure.ac.
- Removed dependency to libpulse-dev (removed also files; src/pulseaudio.[ch]).
- Using now Gstreamer to get list of audio devices (new files; src/gst-devices.[ch]).
- New and unplugged devices are detected automatically.
- User can change and add new recording pipelines. Please see [Additional settings] dialog and Implementation in win-settings-pipe.[ch] module.
- Improved MP3-recording with id3mux.
- Better error message at missing Gstreamer-plugin.
- Automatic installation of (missing) plugins needs to be completed in next version.
