ALAC support supports high-end recording
SuperMegaUltraGroovy and toastycode have launched an upgrade to the their Mac audio recorder, releasing TapeDeck 1.3. The software behaves like an old-style tape recorder, with the ability to export to WAV, AIFF and MP3 formats. Users can customize content with animations and sound effects, while past recordings can be managed from within the application interface.
Version 1.3 adds support for Apple's Lossless Audio Codec, allowing high-fidelity audio capture and easy transferability between TapeDeck, GarageBand and Logic. The lossless codec compresses the file without loss of audio quality, allowing for high-end sound while conserving hard disk space.
TapeDeck 1.3 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, including Snow Leopard. It is now available for $25.
