Host application and audio effects developer Audified is proud to announce availability of RecAll — revolutionising risk-free “Record it all” live event capture as an easily set up and easy to use multichannel MacOS application (developed in Cocoa, directly accessing Core Audio).
RecAll really resulted from the facts of (recording) life (often on the road) posing some serious questions. Questions like: An awesome live show but no time for slow DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) preparation? Risk missing an important part of the event? Easier said than done, Audified advanced some simple solutions: Record it all. Simply. Quickly.
Not quite so simple — or quick, probably, putting those solutions into practice produced an appropriately named result: RecAll. Reality dictates that when working sound reinforcement events there is usually next to no time available for ancillary recording. After all, although most DAWs can be set up to record multichannel events, configuring them to do so is never a straightforward event in itself. Indeed, truth be told, overly-featured DAWs are not really geared up for risk-free, no-nonsense live event recording. RecAll revolutionises that sorry scenario. Simply. Quickly.
Quickly cutting to the chase, how does it do that, then? The RecAll name gives the game away. Record it all. Simply. Quickly. Open the application, select the setup from the template menu, and hit Record. Really, it’s that easy!
No need to spend valuable time repeatedly naming inputs and channels on a DAW anymore as RecAll takes care of that. That being said, it also allocates intelligent metering, automatically toggling between the two types available during the recording process. Before recording starts, standard meters show the input level at the time. When recording starts, the meters show the signal history, so no need to check them constantly, which is especially useful if RecAll’s main window is hidden. Preview recorded tracks with the click of a button. Export the takes into (almost) any DAW for mixing — all the tracks are automatically structured and titled when dragging and dropping the files from each take. Intelligent multitrack recording… without the trouble.
Project configuration adjustments can be made directly from within RecAll’s main window, including adding or removing channel strips, arming channels for recording, and toggling between mono and stereo tracks, while complete configuration is available in the Inspector window, where users can select one or more channel strips to be edited using standard modifiers, such as shift (to select a range of channel strips) and command (to select several strips at any position). Once in the Inspector window, assigning channel strip names and colour, arming channels for recording, toggling between mono/stereo, and assigning channels to the strip remains simplicity itself. It is also worth noting that if multiple tracks end up with the same name, RecAll automatically adds indexes to distinguish between them. Manually reindexing a channel strip is also perfectly possible, in which case RecAll reindexes the rest of the channels strips to ensure unique naming remains intact.
Risk-free recording duly completed, RecAll users can quickly check the recorded files from the main window or within the Track Player window (which can be detached from the main bar by simply dragging it to another position). Press the Play button in the main bar to play the master (mixed) track or press the Play button in individual channel strips to listen to individual input recordings. Most of the playback controls are standard and are just like the transport found in any DAW. Alternative takes — part of a recording between pressing the Record and then the Stop buttons (visible to the right of the Project name) — can be heard by using the assigned buttons (or selecting from the Take menu).
More meaningfully, as implied by its appropriate appellation, RecAll really records it all. Simply. Quickly. Question is: if tasked with recording an awesome multichannel live event, is it really worth risking using anything else?

About Audified (www.audified.com)
Audified is the premier brand of privately-owned Boskovice-based DISK Multimedia, s.r.o. in the Czech Republic, created to develop specialised audio applications, as well as handling the company’s high-end hardware product portfolio. Pioneering the development of audio applications for live (realtime) performance, as well as developing the first audio effects plug-ins for Apple’s Mac OS X, the company created some of the first plug-ins for Power|Core, TC Electronic’s hardware-accelerated DSP platform, prompting the Danish developer’s then-PR Manager Thomas Valter to comment, “Our two companies have been working closely together on various projects, and we are very satisfied with the products that have been a result of our cooperation.” Consequently, the company returned to its host application and audio effects developmental roots in 2007 by branding itself with the Audiffex appellation to resourcefully reflect that directional change with an award-winning array of innovations, including MixChecker — a must-have mixing assistant plug-in that transforms studio monitors into classic reference monitors or one of several consumer devices to instantly improve mixes. Moreover, Audified is not just a for-profit business, however; its parental company clearly cares about the future of audio software/hardware development, developing partnerships with both Janacek Academy of Music and Performing Arts (JAMU) in Brno, Czech Republic — realising a research project to bring modern audio engineering technologies to music education, and also Brno University of Technology, one of the Czech Republic’s leading research and teaching institutions — working with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication Technologies on scientific projects. Participating in organising entry exams and teaching at these highly-respected higher education establishments has helped establish the first specialised studies of audio engineering in the Czech Republic. In keeping with spreading the (audio engineering) word, Audified has helpfully seen fit to recently release a range of free plug-ins, available from here: http://shop.audified.com/collections/products/free#tags
