Gidluck Mastering's Live2496

Revised 12/16/2007: Gidluck Mastering's Live2496 now runs under Windows Mobile 5.0 and includes a FLAC encoder that can be used to losslessly compress audio data both during recording and in previously recorded WAV files. It also allows you to change recording media during recording without losing a single bit. Using this feature you can record continuously, essentially forever, using low-cost, low-density (e.g., 1 GB) flash cards.

Here are a few Live2496 screen shots:

This latest version of Live2496 allows you to reliably record at 24/96 on HP iPAQ 210/211, h2200-, hx2400-, hx2700-, hx4700-, h5100- and 5500-series, or Dell Axim X51v, X50 and X50v PDAs. It also lets you select between PDAudio-CF's coaxial or optical inputs, 16 or 24-bit data format, sample rates from 32 to 96 KS/s, metering on/off, and to enter recording mode at startup. Files are named automatically from the base filename that you specify and a desired starting index. It can record to a sequence of files to allow you to record 24/96 for up to ten continuous hours without changing storage media. It also allows remote control recording and playback using a Bluetooth keyboard. And Live2496 now provides very responsive metering at 16-bits. The display can be darkened during recording to extend battery life. An extra-cost option allows for mono recording, doubling the amount of time you can record on a single memory card, and sample rates of 176.4 and 192 KS/s.

Important for naturalist researchers making field recordings, Live2496 can also be programmed to record either for a specific length of time that is repeated at specific intervals, or via a start-time/end-time schedule list.

Here at Core Sound we regularly use Live2496 to record at 24/96 to 2 and 4 GB SD flash memory cards on both a Dell Axim X50v and an HP iPAQ h2215.

Live2496 is available for purchase from Gidluck Mastering for $50. Development is ongoing and purchasers of the program are provided with free updates.

Technica Del Arte's Luci

Updated 1/3/2007: Technica Del Arte offers PDA software to support electronic news gathering and live broadcasting from the field. With Luci you can:
  • Record interviews
  • Edit
  • Add text and other metadata
  • Publish wirelessly as a bwf file via the Internet or your own broadcast server
  • All using mp2 or WAV formats in real time!

There are currently two Luci products: Luci Edit and Luci Live1. Luci Edit is tailored for the reporter who wants to have more editing-features. Luci Live1 allows you to broadcast Live from your PocketPC to a shoutcast or icecast internet radio-station! Luci runs fine on PDAs running Windows Mobile 5.0.

Luci Edit's Recording window is designed with large buttons so that it can be controlled with your fingers - no stylus is required. The Edit window allows you to zoom in and out on each clip, fast-forward and rewind while listening in real time, set and clear markers, and clip and paste marked regions. The Clip Editor window lets you edit the sequence of clips into a broadcast ready report.

Luci now records in mono with 16 or 24-bit word widths, and at sample rates of up to 96 KS/s!

Here are a few Luci Edit screen shots. The first shows the Record screen. The second shows the Edit screen. The third and fourth show Luci Setup screens.

Luci Live1 transforms your PocketPC or Smartphone into a high quality live internet broadcasting source. Until now you had to use very expensive satellite-time or the like. Now, with the emergence of free -even open source- internet radio servers, high-speed wireless internet access and the use of Luci Live1, the cost of live broadcasting is practically zero.

Here's a Luci Live1 screen shot:
