Hey xland, it's been awhile. Does anyone know of an audio recording app that is specifically designed (or has a mode for) the x, namely to take advantage of the three mics? I am always shocked at how great loud live music sounds when I record a video in "concert" mode... But when I use various sound recording apps I've found, the quality is way worse. I'd love to not have to run the camcorder just to get a decent sound.
And if it doesn't exist - who should I ask to develop one!?
To the original poster: Sorry for the highjack! Here are screenshots of other useful info found in this directory, some of which I cannot post because it has my phone info. But if you search you will find neat stuff in there.
On LMO's suggestion I installed Hi-Q MP3 Recorder Lite. So far I like it the best of all the recorders I have tried. It records MP3 and you can adjust the bit rate to 32, 64, 96, or 128 Kbps. Not sure, but I suspect it is recording mono, which means for voice recording 32 Kbps would probably be sufficient.
As a test I started the recorder and called my DX. My DX started ringing and I ignored the call. Hi-Q kept right on recording.
Next I started the recorder and called my DX, but this time I answered the call. The recording stopped when I answered the call.
I am an attorney and have a little Olympus digital recorder that I use to record witness interviews. I don't know that I will use this instead of the Olympus, but it sure would make a decent backup.
SgtTurtle- You're welcome, glad to have helped. Believe me, I've tried just about every recorder out there, and kept going back to Hi-Q.
I also like TapeMachine, but that one is more geared toward editing sound files, and does not record as nicely or have as smooth a user interface as Hi-Q. I mainly use that for editing. It's very interesting to know how Hi-Q worked for you though, as I've never had a call come in while using it.
LMO - I needed to know what would happen if I was recording a witness interview and a call came in. I was recently surprised when I was using my DX to video my daughter's violin concert and a call came in. I ignored the call, but the video stopped recording. I have not checked this behavior in Gingerbread, but have been putting the phone in Airplane Mode when video recording important stuff.
