Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

Send Article to a Friend

Econ Technologies has released updates to its data management and backup utility, ChronoSync, and its associated remote access utility ChronoAgent, which enables ChronoSync to gain full root access to a Mac that's been mounted via file sharing.

ChronoSync 4.1 adds new scheduling behaviors and options, email notifications of missed syncs, the capability to wake sleeping ChronoAgent systems, new preference settings for the background scheduler, and new "sync when available" and "when specific volume mounts" scheduling options. The update also improves sync performance, tweaks the user interface, adds agent performance optimization features, and fixes a short list of bugs that includes two crashing bugs. Full release notes are available on Econ Technologies' Web site.

ChronoAgent 1.1 improves performance, automatically detects changes in network configuration and ensures its availability on the new network, adds the capability to limit volumes that are accessible over a connection, adds support for wake-on-LAN, and enhances the installer. Full release notes for ChronoAgent are also available. ($40/$10 new, free updates, 20.7/3.1 MB)
