SoundRecEd is a pair of simple graphical utilities to record and edit sound files, similar to operating a tape-deck. Maintained under Sourceforge project SoundEdRec. * Sound-Recorder - Buttons start and stop recording, or split incoming audio into separate files. Captures incoming analog audio, such as from PC sound-card microphone or line-in jacks. * Sound-Editor - Cut sections from audio file, or join files. Both tools save files in WAV, OGG, or MP3. SoundRecEd is not a full-blown professional mixer application. However, it provides functions that are frequently desired by casual users.The Sound-Recorder/Editor utilities (also called SoundEdRec) are graphical front-ends (GUI's) for existing sound utilities that are already present on most Linux PC's. Although everything could be done from the command-line, it is often helpful to have a tool like Sound-Rec/Ed to accomplish frequently-repeated command-combinations by merely pressing buttons. The Sound-Editor tool also provides some visual editing capabilities. SoundRecEd's initial configuration defaults to commonly available record, playback, and conversion tools. It is easily configured to use any alternative tools that you prefer.Without SoundRecEd, you could record audio from a live event using the ALSA arecord function on the command-line. At some point you may wish to pause the recording. Or, you wish to split the recording into separate files by resuming recording into a new sequentially named file. However, it would take some time to manipulate the command-line to do this. In the meantime, you miss incoming material, and/or accidentally overwrite an existing file. At the same time, to conserve disk space, you may wish to initiate conversion to OGG or MP3, followed by deletion of the WAV file. The Sound-Recorder GUI will do all these things automatically by pressing buttons: record, stop, pause, split, ... record, etc., similar to using a tape-deck.If your recording was not cued properly, you may want to cut a small section from the front or tail ends. The Sound-Editor will do this, similar to rewinding tape a bit to cue the next item. The Sound-Editor helps split long audio recording files into separate files. It shows information visually about a recording, and it can apply segue fading, if desired. If you need to record unattended for an extended period of time, you can set SoundRecorder to periodically break the recording into separate sequentially numbered files. The files can later be conveniently edited, cut-down or joined together (spliced), by Sound-Editor.Conventional audio CD's can be made from the WAV-files captured by Sound-Recorder.(For example: cdrecord -v speed=20 -audio -pad *.wav )MP3 or OGG disks can also be made by both Sound-Recorder and Sound-Editor.(Write MP3 or OGG files to CD's as regular data files; not audio.)Other sound applications exist, but many are complicated, designed for serious professional sound editing/mixing, etc.. Some are difficult to install or maintain due to numerous dependencies. The SoundRecEd utilities aim to be self-contained with minimal dependencies. They provide only simple functions.
