Audio software for WM-based devices.

Continuing the review of software products for working with sound, let's look at one of the most popular Resco utilities for recording and playing sound on communicators.

The developer is Resco. The manufacturer's website is www.resco.net. Distribution conditions - shareware, price - $19.95. The latest version of the program, 3.21, is dated September 2005

Programming interface

The main program window consists of two parts. One of them contains the soft buttons for controlling the player and the playback window, the other contains a list of music files from the default directory. The panel at the bottom of the window contains checkboxes for additional menus and buttons for quick access to the main functions.

Options menu

Via the options menu, you can save the recording, schedule recordings, and turn off the display while you work. In the same paragraph, the main settings of the program are made. In the programmable recording schedule, you can specify the start and end time of the recording, and the list of items in the schedule is not limited. The task list is saved in the device's memory.

Settings

In the recording settings window, the quality is selected, which determines the total duration. The maximum recording time is affected by the recording format and the amount of free space in the device. The selected format and recording duration are displayed on the screen. When you select the maximum recording quality in wav format, the recording time with the same amount of free memory is reduced from 28 to 2 hours. In the main settings menu, you can enable the voice recording activation mechanism, set the display off time, and select the font for displaying text on the device screen.

In the "Files" window, the path to the folder where new records will be placed is configured (by default, this is "My Documents"), the name template for saving is set. As an option, you can set the saving of each entry in a separate folder. In the skins window, the appearance of the program is configured. By default, only one skin is included in the kit (in portrait and landscape orientation of the display), but additional ones can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.

A separate window of the options menu is intended for setting up the association of the hardware buttons of the device. To start the program, it is very convenient to use the standard voice recorder activation button. In the window for selecting files that will be automatically played using this utility, it is possible to mark all the necessary ones from the list. By default, the program supports playback of WAV, MP3, OGG Vorbis, Speex and RAF formats. Playlists in M3U format are also supported. When you first start the program on the communicator Woollen Checked association list suggested to set up. In the future, these settings will be used when recording and playing music files.

The program has an interesting feature. When using an external CF format PDAudio card, it can be used to record the broadcast directly from the air. If there is no such card, this option is not available, and the user is informed about it.

The last settings window contains a list of all codecs for recording and playing sound using the utility.

Working with the program

In principle, all work with the utility in recording mode comes down to pressing the button to start recording and pause/stop it. Recorded files are automatically stored in the folder specified in the settings. When you activate the voice control of the recording in the corresponding window of the program (called by clicking the icon in the bottom line), you can adjust the volume level for the voice and external noise at which the recording will be performed. The built-in label editor allows you to mark the beginning and end of playback for any recorded recording, which subsequently allows you to quickly navigate through a long recording. There is a separate soft button for playing a record by tags.

Compiling and editing playlists

The playlist editor is accessed through the second checkbox at the bottom of the main screen of the Files program.

The playlist editor window allows you to perform all the necessary actions to create and edit playlists. A directory or a separate file is selected to be added, file sorting by name or creation time is supported, mixed playback is supported. Files can be moved up and down, deleted, etc.

The last button in the main program window is designed to quickly turn off the display.

Format conversion

The built-in format converter makes it easy to export recorded files from one format to another. The mention of two-channel recording indicates support for stereo sound, but in practice, I have not seen mobile devices with two microphone inputs. But for converting a stereo recording into a regular mono recording, this option is perfect.

General impressions and conclusions

One of the best programs for recording sound on your communicator. The simplicity and internal consistency of the interface allow even a beginner to understand the operation of the program. At the same time, a certain flexibility of settings allows you to almost completely replace a separate digital voice recorder. The format conversion mechanism is well implemented.

The obvious shortcomings of the program include only the inability to work with the wma format, which is becoming popular thanks to the efforts of Microsoft. But, given that the version is dated September last year, it can be assumed that support for this format will be built into a subsequent version.

The program was tested on a Qtek S110 communicator provided by Vobis.
