IS there any other audio mixer that controls inputs properly for 10.4? This really is a huge omission- I have ALSA, but I hate it- it's strange, uses up the terminal, utterly obscure what exactly different controls do, and doesn't hear my LINE IN connection at all. think could never find or install audiocity (does that open in terminal?). Need to transfer audio for radio report also- need a decent simple audio recorder and editor (similar to ancient Premiere 6 - older clean version) w timeline and 3 streams. Does anyone have that- forgot the disc, and new versions convert audio to huge files, and need more processor power.
Sorry, didn't see the sound control in the preferences or admin- that has an input selector, but so hard to figure priority with multiple sound controls- would set it to LINE IN, but ALSA would show no volume- does that take precedence when it is open? Was using prosaically named "Sound Recorder" but had NO preferences- making monster 5mb/min wav files when only need 22kh MONO. Is optimum level for that 3/4 up where there's a little clip? What's a better simple sound recorder? Flacs were worse 6mb/mn - t says they are supposed to be half the size. Can all editors use flacs?
