new version 2.0 of Bacon Recorder

-new Play button to hear the previous recording.
It can even play the current recording but delayed
(because it reads the file on the hard disk)
I recommend that you install DeaDbeef or slimp
as your player for maximum speed of launch

-new Volume Meter -crude but effective
It uses 'arecord' in the terminal


-new translations in French German and Spanish

-Thanks to translators

I corrected a small error in the English localization


The 'FULL' version is experimental for now. It keeps the window open while recording. I need a few more days to test it, but I'm posting it
for anybody else to test.

Nope. The method use --> converting date and time into an interger
is too crude. I use it to record radio shows.

__________________________________________________________

New version 2.2 has an animated meter ( under 2kb) to
help people to remember to set the sound volume.

Full version now gives a message every time a button is clicked
which will help usabilty.

Also more warnings about hard disks not mounted for the
recording ... just in case... Smile

This works well with Lucid Puppy!!

New version 2.3 Bacon Recorder (FULL)


I made a simple but important change so that
a leading zero isn't needed when inputing the START TIME.

Here's an example:

01:45:00 can now be typed as 1:45:00

and empty space can left at beginning as well.

Subject description: Stereo and Mic
 

Don,

Some sound hardware can support microphones IN or line IN on the same connector. There is a difference in audio level (audio gain). I saw an earlier post about bad audio quality (noisy), and read that you use it to record radio programs.
You may have the audio set to line in for your recordings, and when using a microphone you should switch (turn up the gain) to support this.

I'm gona try it...

I don't use microphones myself, but if I did
I would try the igain control of Retrovol the audio mixer.


If the impedance isn't matched between the microphone
and the input to the amp then the amp assumes a low
volume level and tries to compensate. The hiss is
actually the internal noise of the transistors
( or vaccum tubes) of the amp.

Around 1930 an engineer at ATT in New York City was
sitting on a ferry going to work one morning when he
came up with the idea of feedback to solve this problem
of hiss generated inside of the amp.


The founders of Hewlett Packard studied this as engineers
during the 1930's and started making equipment based
on this principle.

Crazy noob question.

I have both Precord which I use daily to record Radio from a tuner.

And I have Bacon recorder. How do them differ? I am a poor reader of text!

PostPosted: Thu 25 Aug 2011, 20:11    Post subject: warning to avoid spaces in file names and folder names  

To Nooby - precorder unfortunate was built using
Zigbert's pschedule to set a time... and pschedule uses
a built-in UNIX program called 'CRON' to set the time
of a 'job'. It's a bit to complicated for my taste in software.

____________________________________________________

I constructed an endless loop and then broke out of the loop
when the 'condition' was met.

Both programs are nearly equivalent
but I think mine is better to use or
I wouldn't have spent so much time writing it.

BTW I have found a bug in the program.
Folder names (or file names) should not have
a blank space in them or the program goes wonky.

I'll look into this further over the week end.

Thanks, yes one can always test both alternate until one knows which one one prefer Smile

Just now in the background I do use precord and if one skip the schedule thing then one don't even know it is there.

What I still long for though is the feature the old MiniDisc recorders had.

The RAM continuesly had a FIFO? going that remembered the previous 6 or so seconds so when one hit one kind of Record button then it included these 6 seconds so one could get the start of teh radio music

butwith both your Bacon and Precord one miss the start of every record unless one always record not knowing if it is something one like or not.
