Abstract

The recording of silence on multi-channel recorders wastes valuable disk space, and no one has heretofore provided audio analysis and management on a channel-by-channel control basis. This invention sets independent threshold levels for each channel of audio to be recorded - if input audio to a channel is below the threshold, the recording function is turned off for that channel, resulting in great savings in disk space. The problem of wasting disk space by recording silence is solved when the invention creates an independent track setting for punch-in and punch-out and maintains different thresholds for punch-in and punch-out.
