Sound Recorder is simple to install and a powerful way to record in the studio or on the go:
The app itself is deceptively simple, it offloads all of the audio device setup and selection to the OS layer, which can be managed in settings:
With the brunt of the setup automatically handled by PureOS, you can set up the basics from within the app menu.
Actually using the interface could not be more intuitive. Simply hit record to record, and click a past entry if you want to listen to it.
Silence is ideal for any recording studio or sound room. The fans in a standard x86 computer can impact the end result if kept too close to the mic. When I first built my sound
closet room I cabled long runs of USB and power to prevent having to use a computer near my mic. This sucked as I had to print out my script and I couldn’t check the recording status during the session.
Being able to read the script off a screen and having access to the audio controls drove me and my roommate to build this fanless monstrosity:
This did the trick for years but did suffer from major stability issues which were endlessly frustrating to deal with mid recording. Now with USB-C dock support getting better and better, using the Librem 5 has solved all my recording issues and has now permanently replaced my sound room computer.
Purism believes building the Librem 5 is just one step on the road to launching a digital rights movement, where we—the-people stand up for our digital rights, where we place the control of your data and your family’s data back where it belongs: in your own hands.
