Default Galaxy Note 3 as audio recording device

Hi,

I just wanted to share my experience with using the Note 3 as a recording device for band rehearsals.

Audio recording capabilities are quite good! U can record in stereo using the reforge app. The note 3 has 2 mics build in. Disabling AGC in the app delivers good ( not excellent) results with barely distorting on the mics.

Checks this clip of my band on soundcloud.

I just had to add some bass frequencies in audacity.
Remember this is just a first test recording. Dont pay attention to whats played (we can be better) but how it is sounding minding recorded it with the Note 3.

Obviously I will check how to improve the recording capabilities over time. This can be postioning of the device or altering settings in the recording app.
Will keep you posted.

This video is about using the Note 3 as a portable mic recorder, and it seems to shine in that area too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mXA...e_gdata_player

This is without a doubt the best mobile device I have ever had personally and professionally-wise. The Note line is a big win for Samsung and for all of us (at least it is for me)

iiSo say we all!! from my SM-P6OO

The sound is not bad, look at http://www.edutige.kr - the microphone "EIM-004" should be the perfect micro for your requirement in combination with your Smartphone.

Btw., I use this microphone (and other modells) in combination with Audio Evolution Mobile DAW

Great...... But....... I need stereo recording. So this would not do it for me.
