Note: check out Bacon Recorder if you have Wary or older versions
of Puppy. I will stop development of this app and only improve
Bacon recorder
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=669735990&t=69237

I have written a simple script to record audio (with a delay).
I made it simpler to use than the other script that is
available on the forum 'Precord'.

An innovative feature is keeping a log of recordings.
New version does a check to see if partition is mounted.

There are two basic methods to delay your recording start,
a countdown timer or a given time to start the recording.

Three types of recordings are possible, Wave, MP3 stereo and
MP3 mono.
If anyone needs OGG then contact me.
The MP3 Stereo is very high quality q=3 , ( lame -V 3 )
change this to a higher number such as q=5 if you need a
smaller file size.

MP3 mono is very low quality but it's intended for speech.
About 6mb to record one hour of speech in version 1.1
Change to ---> lame -b 32
if you need higher quality speech

The time zone must be set to work , apparently because
the 'date -s ' command is used

I found that it will work only on Fluppy, Lighthouse 503
and Lucid Puppy 520 and 525. I couldn't get it to
work on Wary or Toutou. I will continue to work on it
so that it will work on a greater variety of Puppies.

___________________________________________________________________
Edit. June 20 new version 1.1
I corrected a couple of bugs. ---> Combobox needed hard spaces
between words like 'MP3 Stereo' to work correctly!!

Quality of mono was too low on some versions of Puppy so I
improved it ---> lame -b 16

Some cosmetic changes and a different icon for 'Default setting'

Some extra popup tooltips

Some radical changes in the French translation thanks to esmourguit

Innovative new method of checking to see if partition is mounted.
This is done at the launch of app.

If you forget to enter a length for a recording, you get a warning
and the application restarts automatically.

Be careful that you have enough disk space.

Edit : June 21 Newest version -change of interface
Edit : June 28 click on log button to see if recording
has started
Edit : July 4 Update to be equivalent to Bacon Recorder 1.8
Now it has a Quit button

I have not tested it yet but thanks indeed for this. I've waited a year or more but really since 2002 or so when I realized that I had sleep apnea.

This Egg would allow me to record a better part of the night after me have fallen asleep. Using the lowest quality it most likely will not totally fill up my HDD.

Does one listen with same program or any kind of program?

june 21 version 1.2

I added another combo box to enter the length of the recording
since this makes the app more user friendly.

Note for Lucid Puppy users: This version has been added to
Right_click options version 4.9.3

June 27 new version 1.4 has improved log feature

New version improves the log feature.
It enters it's first message when the recording
begins, so the user can check it now to see if the recording has begun.

So the log will enter two lines when the recording begins
and two lines more when the recording ends.

I have only tested Bacon recorder. Does EGG has same signal to noise level as Bacon has?

I know too little about the soundcard in my Acer D250 and the Microphones I've tested seems to give too low output for to be usable.
Does these two recorders differ on sensitivity or signal/noise level.

My best mike is a cheap one but it is better than the even cheaper versions in cheap headsets.

SpeedLink SL 8707 it has sensitivity -38dB and Signal to Noise is >60dB so that is rather okay for such a cheap mike. 100Hz to 16KHz so not a hifi but better than the average?

So I has to change the config but I have never done such so not sure what you say there at all. What is those figures you give there.

To Nooby

Both Egg and Bacon use the same line of code to record
the audio input, they differ only in how they do the timing
of the event.

PostPosted: Tue 28 Jun 2011, 18:13    Post subject: new version 1.5  

new version 1.5 has a log button .

Two lines are written in the log when the recording actually begins.
Therefore click on log button and see if the recording has
begun. This avoids the awkwardness having to use a text editor.

Three more lines are added to log when the recording finishes.
