+I used to always keep a minidisc recorder in my studio running in a mode where
+when you pressed record it wrote the last 10 seconds of audio to the disk and
+then caught up to realtime and kept recording. The recorder died and haven't
+been able to replace it, so this is a simple jack app to do the same job. It
+has the advantage that it never clips and can be wired to any part of the jack
+graph.
+
+The idea is that I doodle away with whatever is kicking around in my studio
+and when I heard an interesting noise, I'd press record and capture it,
+without having to try and recreate it. :)
+
+Building
+
+This app requires:
+
+ * JACK
+ * GTK+ 2.x
+ * libsndfile
+ * and optionally LASH
+
+You will also need the -devel packages if you're using packages.
+
+./configure
+make
+su -c "make install"
+
+Usage
+
+Run it with "timemachine" then connect it up with a jack patchbay app. To
+start recording click in the window, to stop recording click in the window
+again.
+
+It will create a file following tm-*.wav, with an ISO 8601 timestamp, eg
+tm-2003-01-19T20:47:03.wav. The time is the time that the recording starts
+from, not when you click.
+
+Contact
+
+You can report bugs to steve at plugin dot org.uk, to the linux-audio-dev
+mailing list, or to #lad on irc.freenode.net.
