Ubercaster 1.0 released
E.R.S "Pleasant software for the people" has released Übercaster 1.0 after a lengthy period of private beta testing. Übercaster is designed as a complete production suite for podcasting on Mac systems that allows podcasters to prepare, record, cut, and release shows without overloaded and bulky recording environments. The software supports live audio recording, auto ducking, effects, chapters for enhanced podcasts, ID3 tags, album cover art, and MP3/AAC/AIFF encoding. Übercaster 1.0 is available for $80, and requires Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later.
Übercaster uses the Cocoa framework and is completely written in Objective-C, and utilizes built-in Mac OS X technologies such as CoreAudio and CoreImage. Templates enable users to use previous projects to save time, and the software supports defining multiple microphones with a special input panel for iChat as well as Skype and Gizmo recording.
