The main operation mode of Galicaster is the Recorder. The Recorder will show you a real-time preview of the devices set in the configuration.
We will take a short tour through some screen captures and see the different sections.
In the top bar you will find the current Status and a button to return to the main page. The current time is also displayed, which can be very useful.
The Status Area will show you the current state of the recording, which can be Iddle, Waiting, Recording and Stopped. Basically, you want to know if the program is actually recording or not.
The event panel will keep record of the upcoming recordings. It will show the title of the next recording and the time to go before it starts. Seconds before starting, this timer will start blinking to get everybody's attention. Once started the event panel will show a countdown till the end of the recording.
If you want to know which recordings are scheduled, press Events and a pop up window will show the list of them, allowing you to start immediately any future recording.
The Control Panel is in the right bottom part of the screen. The panel contains the VU meter and the operation buttons.
Buttons will allow you to manage a manual recording, starting and stopping it at will. In administration mode, the Edit Button will replace the Help Button, which allows editting the recording metadata of the current recording.
The ability to Pause recordings will be available in the upcoming releases.
