Re: Gnome sound recorder

Hi, I think that these applications are complex a lot for a simple
operation like capture and playback of audio. I think in resources
like choice of sample rate, encoding and number of channels. Playback
of linear, a-law and mu-law audio, etc.
The Audacity, Beast and WaveSurfer
( are complex applications to be
integrated with the window manager. A application like Windows sound
recorder is simple and util. Most users don't have technical
knowledges to edit audio.
