Project Description

I need a software (for Win7) as described below. The purpose of the software is to help tracking places/timings in an audio file which require editing, and also allow to record/save editing information.

The software will have a START button which will be pressed at the same time when an audio recording session (recorded with an external recording device) is started. The software is NOT meant for recording this main audio file, but only for logging/tracking certain events during a recording session.

Once the 'START' button is pressed, the software will log the time whenever a specific key (any key) is pressed. This key-press event marks a time when some editing has to be done in the audio file which is recorded with the external recording device. When the audio recording session is over, a 'STOP' button in the software stops the timer.

Once the 'STOP' button is clicked, all key-press events get listed with the exact time they occurred, counting from the moment the session started. For each logged key-press event there will be a 'RECORD' button that allows to voice-record a comment with the editing information for that particular key-press event/time. A 'STOP' button will be required to stop the recording when commenting is done, and a 'PLAY' button will allow to listen to the recorded comment for a particular event.

Finally one should be able to save the 'session data' (txtlog file with times and MP3 files with comments) into a single project file which can be opened later again (in the same software) by the person who is editing the main audio file. With the help of this information, the person will know the time in the audio file where editing is required, and he cann also listen to the comment/editing information and understand what exactly needs to be edited at a given time.

I hope that the requirement can be understood with this description, if not please clarify your doubts with me.

I hope someone is out there who is interested and able to do this.
