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
