    Replay Music - More Features, and What's Missing


    (Page 4 of 4 )

    There is also a Splitting tab. This turns automatic splitting on and off. Also, it adjusts what volume level should be detected as silence, which helps the player determine when it is between tracks. You can control how many milliseconds of silence should designate that a new track has started. Finally, there is a control that prevents recording and splitting if a track is too short, which helps prevent recording radio ads and promos on some stations.

    What sort of features are missing? Well, a stop button would have been nice. In order to get the program to stoop playing a song, you have to close it. The tagging system is also lacking. It only works when recording a stream of audio from the same artist and album (which you have to enter yourself before recording). Also, if you like VBR (variable bitrate) recordings, you’ll have to compromise since Replay doesn’t support them. Volume leveling, which is a nice feature in numerous recording suites to keep tracks from being noticeably louder or softer than each other, is also not something Replay seems concerned with.

    There are a few features in Replay’s upcoming Replay A/V product that could have been very useful in Replay Music. For one, Replay Music is missing a scheduling system. If you leave home for work and want your computer to record a radio show in the middle of the day, you must start the recording in the morning and let it go all day. Also, the A/V product can record multiple streams simultaneously, and it records video streams. You might be thinking that you can get Replay A/V instead of Replay Music. Actually that won’t work out, because the A/V program will not have automatic track splitting and tagging systems. Splitting tracks yourself is a pain.

    Why Replay even has four separate product lines is beyond me; all their programs seem to do the same exact thing with different limitations. Perhaps they could have one for audio only and one for audio and video, but honestly, all their programs should be integrated into one.
