recording a sound

with a sound card attached we can turn our pi into a cheap digital audio recorder, something like a zoom, if we power it by a battery. Click on the link below for the pd patch.


im using this soundcard, attached to it is a cheap levelier mic.

open thie patch, set up your sound card so its input is the mic. Have a look here if you  can’t remember…….

every time you hit the record toggle its starts to record, unclick it to stop. Each new recording has a unique name automatically created, and is put in the recorded folder


This patch can be easily modified to auto-record when it “hears” a sound over a certain thresh-hold.
