Issue taking notes

Although a little clunky to use when starting or stopping a recording due to hzving to select the app and then select it again in the top pulldown, the recording portion of the app seems fine in the limited use i’ve given it so far. The major issue for me is the note portion while recording. Within 30 minutes of using the app I’ve had nearly half of all my note text deleted in random bunches. After typing a line or two, the app starts deleting text from the lines previously typed, and it happens both while typing, and when doing nothing, not touching my computer. Without the ability to reliably take notes to go along with the recording, unfortunztely this app has no functionality for me. I guess if you soley want to record sound, this no frills app seemed to work, although I didn’t make it past half an hour of using it before giving up on being able to use it.

Easy just pay attention

This application is quite functional and meets my requirements with a very simple interface the is focused on recording. It works for what I need which is mostly vocal recording. The recordings are clear with excelent dynamics all sound are captured clearly and cleanly.
The recording and continue recording function works smoothly and cleanly, no clutter here. Changing the default directory to a directory that you want to save your stuff into may seem a bit annoying everytime you open the app but it works fine.

One of the key features is the file format conversion, it works like a dearm and converts the files with reasonable speed from one format to another, and you get to choose the distination directory.

Just fiddle with the app a bit and you will find all that you need to complete your recording task. While there may be more sophisticated software out there, this is light and functional. The almost minimalist approach to providing a decent recording tool I appreciate.

Great work Xwavesoft!!!
