Record from multiple radio stations at once
Vemedio has introduced Snowtape 2.0, a major upgrade to its internet-radio recording utility. The software can be used to locate and record music from streaming radio stations, and to export the songs as iTunes compatible AAC files. The latest version features an enhanced recording engine, new Recording Schedules, and a redesigned editor complete with audio waveforms and added display options. Additionally, the update also adds support for AirTunes protocol, and is capable of streaming to Airport Express and Apple TV.
With the upgraded engine comes a new Zero-Reencoding Recording Process, which allows users to record from multiple radio stations at once, as well as record and edit compressed audio. The new Recording Schedules make it possible to set specific times in which the app will begin recording, and is capable of waking the Mac and starting up the app itself when it's time to record a show. Lastly, support is now offered for streaming to multiple devices at the same time.
Snowtape 2.0 is available in both English and German localization, and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 or higher. New users can purchase a single license for $35, while a family pack is priced at $45.
