• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Nice work by the programmers, the layout is clean though a bit cluttered (not a real problem)
I like the fact that it is a stand alone app, but I have a few minor issues, could be I just haven't figured them out yet, the program wants to save the files where it wants to save the files, I have a separate hard drive for recording radio stuff, and I can't tell it where I want to put the recordings and logfiles, other than that after a few hours of use it works better than anything I have tried so far.
I you guys know how to make the program save where I want it to save speak up!

Where did you find this program? Searching Google or the forums is not helping.

It is a nice program, I use it myself. I have the problem that when the program starts, it saves the file to C:/docs and settings/username, which is not the directory I want to files in. I have to change it every time. I haven't found anyone else with his issue.

Try running it from a short cut, and under short cut properties set the "start in " folder to where you want the files to be saved. works for me in winxp

Doesn't this belong in the Scanning Software Forum?
I suppose it could go there, it is software but not directly scanning related. My first reply on another topic recording your scanner was in this forum.

G thanks for the tip I will try it.

smaller file size

Is it possible to record with Vox2File directly to MP3?

I'm able to record in WAV format but would like to use some type of compression if that can be done. When I change the selection from PCM to MP3 or LAME MP3 (after installing this codec), and I press record, I get a memory error.

Can't do mp3 directly, but there is a software called switch, put out by nch, that can batch convert the files, it is free and it works, pm me for a link, I will send it to you, easy to use, and I have some other NCH software, that I also really like, wavepad for example.

I-Sound Pro

I've found a software called I-Sound Pro that supports VOX and can record directly to MP3 audio. It's been great, the only drawback is that it costs $29.99. However you get to try it out for 30 days, I recommend those looking for a VOX MP3 recorder to check it out.
