Guides on emulating older applications

Coaster is a little direct-to-disk recording utility writing standard AIFF files.
It features setting of input source, sample rate and sample size, mono/stereo selection, input gain (stereo where available), accurate level meters with headroom indication, clipping detection.

Further features: click elimination, automatic recording based on incoming signal level with file splitting, and manual file splitting on the fly; balloon help; supports AppleScript (timer recording script included). Performs very well in the background.

Included: tutorial, manual and a few scripts.

I use this to digitize vinyl on a Power Mac 7600 with built-in RCA ports. Highly recommended.

I added the beta versions because they were offered at the download page too. They might be useful if they are bugs in the last offered versions as they are newer ones.
Good job for sorting the downloads again for better overview ! Laughing out loud

Thanks Kitchen2010 i was not shure about uploading the beta version and script since the 1.0.7b as only the app. include no manual and no script also the script include are very similar to the one you upload an i have never try them.
I made a clean up so everything is easier to find PPC, Fat and 68k.
