Hi Christoph. I'm playing around with mhwaveedit from a previous post at the
moment. It seems a nice little app. It played back a stock .wav just fine,
but recording a live audio stream from bbc.co.uk via realplayer is giving a
very stuttery playback. I probably need to play with the knobs and settinngs
a bit more, as this is only about 2 hours since I started to install it on
FC2. Time machine I've had installed for a while, and since seeing the option
for saving in .wav format tried it again. Recording to Timemachine was out of
this world. I was doing a test recording from a demo Hydrogen file. I think
it must have been recording while in some terrible feedback loop, as the
playback was similar to very worst of the "Thrash" that John Peel used to
play, along with huge cymbal crashes. In 43 secs I got 18.4MB of .wav. This
seems a bit over the top. Anyway, I'm happy to persevere with both of these
apps. After all it does take a bit of time to get used to the controls.
OT. By the way, I'm still using Gentoo, but on dial-up, a load of KDE updates,
along with another kernel, and nearly 38MB of yet another Firefox update.
Man. The machine was tied up for about 30 hours. It's still a good distro,
but probably better if you have an ADSL connection, and a very fast machine
for the compiles. It would be nice if while one package was being compiled,
the next one in line could be downloading.
