Active Sound Recorder description

Active Sound Recorder comes to users as an advanced and useful ActiveX control developed by MultiMedia Soft that makes it easy adding sound recording capabilities to applications written with the most widely-used development environments that accept ActiveX controls such as Visual Studio and Visual Studio.NET .

Active Sound Recorder is designed to work directly with your sound card or with your CD/DVD player, so you can record almost any audio, including that from a microphone, a line-in jack or a CD player (CD ripping), at near-perfect quality.

Recorded sounds can be kept in memory for later use or stored on the hard disk using several formats: WAV, MP3, WMA, OGG Vorbis, AAC, MP4, AIFF, AU, W64, PAF, SVX, NIST, VOC, IRCAM, PVF, CAF, FLAC, RAW, but also using the ACM codecs installed inside the system; once a recording session has been completed, it's possible to hear recorded sound through the embedded playback system: if you need more sophisticated playback features (like changing tempo or pitch), consider using this component in conjunction with Active DJ Studio ActiveX control.

Active Sound Recorder allows a deep analysis of the recorded sound waveform with rich visualisation capabilities like range selection, zooming and panning. Recorded sounds can be edited, resampled, mixed with other sounds and exported to different formats: the ideal solution for implementing powerful Dictation Software Applications.

The integrated Sound Activation System allows pausing a recording session automatically when no sound is being heard: this will help saving valuable space both in memory and on disk.

Active Sound Recorder comes with many Internet related features: it can record sound data coming from Internet URLs (HTTP, FTP or MMS): this allows recording directly from Internet radios streaming in WMA, MP3, OGG Vorbis, AAC and AC3 formats. Contents of a recording session can be uploaded to a FTP server. Thanks to the integration with FreeDb servers, the control can obtain CDDB information about the CD currently in ripping phase and, if available on the Amazon web site, the control can obtain the CD cover pictures as well.

Custom DSP effects are also supported: you can create your own DSP effects and apply them to the sound being recorded.

Major Features:
  1. Recording from any DirectSound or ASIO compatible sound card available inside the system
  2. Support for half-duplex devices (like the Phillips SpeechMike™)

  28. Uploading of the last recording session to a FTP server
  29. Support for custom DSP effects
  30. Support for switching the output file without stopping the recording session and without loosing any sound data.
  31. Recording of the output of audio streams mixed through Active DJ Studio
  32. Support for encryption/decryption of recorded sounds, often required by medical confidentiality laws
