sound recorder timer (EMC 7)?


JWD

Question

OK, I am a laggard--I still have EMC 7. But I was surprised recently, when I was digitizing some cassettes, that there seems to be no timer to turn off the recording. So I can't set it to record a tape (using an auto-reverse tape deck) and then leave for the day, because it will just keep running until my hard drive is full of silence. Am I missing a menu item? Do the newer versions have this? Because there are free sound recorders out there that do have this (Audacity for one). Seems like a pretty obvious, useful and simple feature to incorporate.

Any comments, help, welcome.

Easy Audio Capture and similar applications in EMC V8, V9 and V10 have a feature to limit the time of recording. I'm sure that V7 or 7.5 did not have this feature. With the newer versions, you can select a pre-roll where you can select to start recording an audio stream after it starts (seconds; not minutes). There is no ability to start recording at a certain time.

 

THANKS, SKNIS!
