mcewanw sorry if I have been up to no good / impolite / absconding code etc.

If it is any consolation I can not record in Puppy
whatever I do. Crying or Very sad

I even bought a sound card
though I have perfectly good inbuilt recording (in theory)
well no in practice - have used on Ubuntu
- could be a 64 bit compile . . . m m m . . . dunno

I did use 'wreckedleg' with great success
and look forward to any new resources

I think my sound recording problems are kernel based
- drivers are playing sound - not recording

Now about the code mods
If I mod something, I try and post to the relevant area
sometimes can not find the post and start a new thread.

Please forgive me
(I will be whipping myself all day with seaweed as an act of contrition)

Thanks mcewanw, that's exactly what I wanted. I'll try it this weekend and report how it works. Now can you add a VU meter so I can set the mic level? Laughing

Seriously, perhaps a VU meter program could run concurrently with Precord, if I could find one. Maybe one could be made using Pwidgets. I know a real-time VU meter is possible, because mhWaveEdit shows one in the record window. How hard would it be to extract the code for it and use it to make a stand-alone meter?

flash,

arecord should have one (but maybe this is only true for aplay), from manpage:
Quote:
-V, --vumeter=TYPE
Specifies the VU-meter type, either stereo or mono.
The stereo VU-meter is available only for 2-channel stereo samples
with interleaved format.

Code:
arecord -V mono

works! It took me a while to realize it was working. What it does is constantly refresh the length of a text line in a rxvt window. If you leave the rxvt window at its default size, all you see is a bunch of meaningless noise. I stretched the rxvt window out horizontally and that's when I saw how it worked. Great, now I'll have to see if it will play nice with precord.

I tried changing line 39 of precord as mcewanw suggested, but it's not obvious how to do it. Copying and pasting between the "" on that line doesn't work. There's a double space after the second m in mcewanw's line of code. Is it supposed to be that way? I took one of the spaces out and changed a few other things, I can't remember what they were now, and then precord worked, but wouldn't shut off.

[brief thread hijack]

@ Lobster
So you can play sound but can't record ... did you set up Alsamixer?
Instructions here (in German, sorry):
www.angelfire.com/linux/tux25/linux/linux.html#72
- Menu > Multimedia > AlsaMixer
- hit tab key so 'View:' moves from 'Playback' to 'Capture'
- hit cursor right key until on 'Mix'
- hit space bar so 'L CAPTUR R' text appears at 'Mix'
- hit cursor left key once to move to 'Capture'
- hit cursor up key until level on '13<>13'
- hit Esc key to exit AlsaMixer
You probably already knew. Still hope it's helpful,
JR

Please forgive me


You're English and can't help it, so there is nothing to forgive or forget. Let's face it, the Sassenach have always relied on the inventive intellect of the Scots. On reflection we should have invented weapons rather than steam engines and so on, and allowed you lot to clean our toilets. This would be off topic were I not recording it in my new mp3 recorder, but since it is historically all known well be true we wouldn't bother debating the issue offtopic either. Something (for you) to medicate, I mean meditate on... :-)
[alas that, though we have tried for centuries to educate the English, the task has proved an impossibility; being English and achieving Nirvana is an oxymoron if ever there was one, but you can always claim otherwise in your next paw'd cast].

Subject description: or wiakrecord (a bit of all of them actually)
 

configurable, Precord with mp3 record, play, pause, and auto save configuration (cbr, abr, vbr, bitrate, stereo/mono) is announced for Puppy 4 series (tested on 4.3.1):

Hopefully this will prove useful and convenient.
