    First steps and testing

    Use the 2 hours refund period to test how audio recording works on your phone. Touch "Factory" in the display area and you probably find a preset in the cloud perfectly adapted to your smartphone!

    Or try the different input configurations from "In:MicA" to "In:MicE". If you activate "Monitor", use headphones to avoid a sound feedback loop. Check without creating audio files, just by pressing the pause button which activates the level meters. Then you see a date/time string as the potential file name. It is created only if you press the record button

    ⚫ If you modify a preset, its name gets gray in the display area
    ⚫ Playback can amplify quiet recordings by choosing e.g. "Play +20dB" without distortion due to a 2nd limiter. The Monitor switch affects only recording
    ⚫ Touch the "time/position/free" label to show the remaining recording duration
    ⚫ Touch battery symbol to toggle between battery and CPU usage
    ⚫ Touch "CLP" to reset red LEDs
    ⚫ The level meter shows peak amplitudes or the start/stop control signal. Touch it to open its configuration menu
    ⚫ Active auto start overrules pressing the pause button
    ⚫ The 1.5kHz filter optimizes the auto start/stop control signal for speech. 750Hz better suppresses disturbing sound with high frequencies, 3kHz with low frequencies
    ⚫ Soft Clipping is active above -3dBFS
    ⚫ Limiting and Soft Clipping work only if Boost is greater than 0dB
    ⚫ "Boost 40dB" or more might produce hardware feedback loop if power supply is instable
    ⚫ Overwrite and Append modify existing recordings (warning can be switched on/off)
    ⚫ Activate flight mode to reduce noise floor

    Please add 24 bit sound support in it, my phone Xperia z5 premium support 24bit audio but no 24bit sound option in the app, also ACG cannot be disabled in this app, it's grayed out, please add support for phone model, also add 50hz filter, it only has 60hz filter. There is no help guide in app. Add that as well. Thanks.

    Very sophisticated recorder. Works well with my LG V20. I love the control this app provides. Well done! I'll be buying pro version.

    Can't get the media recorded off the phone. Sucks, because I have to get a new phone

    Easy to use, impressive, well thought out with lots of nice features. Worked well on Google Pixel. Better than any iOS recording apps I have used. Buttons look a bit plain but functionally is great.

    Is there a way to use this app to record stuff playing on my phone not from the speaker but inside the phone?

    Despite its beauty, and the quality of sound it produces (selective devices)...on the s7 edge it can record in stereo. I know this because the meters and sound adjust based on position...not at all on the v20. The meters stay level. I tap each of the 3 mics and only the bottom one is activated in this app. And the sound is horrible. Its mono and its tinny on the basic setting. Meaning...its 3 stars when its reviewed as a whole encompassing app. Update the app when it can utilize all microphones (at least 2 on the v20) and I will update review. Through my headphones and this app, I will stick to stock app which uses both positioned at the top (camera hifi uses all 3).
