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 1.5.7, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:
- Start, stop or pause recording at a given clock time.
- Start, stop or pause after a time period.
- Stop when the recorded file size exceeds a limit.
- Start recording on voice or sound (user can set the audio threshold).
- Stop or pause recording on “silence” (user can set the audio threshold and delay).
