Fifty Thousand Watt Software has started shipping its Voice From the Past audio logging system, which it says is particularly suitable for recording live radio shows for broadcast.
It runs under Windows, and comes in two programs: VP-Record and VP-Retrieve.
With VP-Record, the user supplies an audio source and designates a sound file folder. VP-Record records audio in CD quality; the recording is done in one-minute sound files so that, in the event of a hardware or power failure, no more than 60 seconds of recorded material is lost.
VP-Retrieve retrieves the recorded audio from anywhere on the network. It has a user interface that designates a time period to retrieve, and controls that audition the retrieved audio so that it can be correctly trimmed at the start and end of the desired event.
Voice From the Past saves up to three weeks of audio. The program automatically deletes sound files older than the designated save time. The main screen continuously reports the amount of remaining disk space.
A free 30-day trial is available for download online.
