Black Cat Systems announced recently that Audiocorder 4.0 is now available. The new version of this handy audio recorder adds the ability to automatically convert recordings to MP3 format and add them to your iTunes Library.
Audiocorder allows you to record all audio on your Mac, whether it’s coming in through a microphone or other peripheral or from an application. You can program it to start and stop recording at specific times or operate it manually, and you can designate whether the recordings should be stored in separate files or in one. It default file type is AIFF format, but you can also select WAVE or MP3.
In addition, Audiocorder can record telephone conversations over an internal modem, but only on certain Macs running Mac OS 9. Black Cat notes that this feature will not work on iBooks or Cubes because they lack analog sound input capabilities.
You can also use Audiocorder in volume operated (VOX) mode, which allows you to set the volume level required to start and stop recording. With this mode, you can eliminate dead air if there are lengthy pauses in the audio stream.
You can download Audiocorder from the Black Cat Web site and try it out before you purchase it. When you decide to keep it, the developer simply asks that you pay whatever amount you think the application is worth.
