Did we ever think we’d see the day where the iPhone 3G was beginning to feel ‘dated’? Not really, but this is one of man’s finest creations if we do say so ourselves. For our readers looking to take advantage of the well-crafted built-in microphone included with the iPhone 3G and make high quality recordings for less than a dollar, there’s no need to click away, we’ve got you covered.
In today’s posting, we’ll show our readers how to get the most out of their iPhone 3G’s built-in microphone and make high quality recordings which can be used in audio productions, shared online or buned to disc. All for less than a buck.
Recorder. Not the flute thingy.
If our readers were to open their app store using their iPhone 3G and search for the term, “Recorder“, they should see something like this:
Here, our readers would be able to tap the first selection, “Recorder” and make their purchase (current price = $.99). Once downloaded and installed, our readers should see the “Recorder” icon on their Home Screen.
Click the icon to open the app. Here our readers will be able to view/listen to their recordings (once created) or select other tabs (see bottom) for more options.
Let’s click the “More Settings” tab and take a look. On this screen, our readers will want to make sure they’ve selected “On” for “High Quality“.
Note: “High Quality” will record to the AIFF file format. If our readers wish to upload to AudioAcrobat, they’ll need to convert the AIFF to WAV, MP3 or WMA prior to uploading. Looking for software which will accomplish this? Try HERE first!
When our readers are ready to begin recording, they can navigate to the “Recordings” tab and click the big red “Record” button. When audio data is picked up by the phone, levels and elapsed time will appear as seen below:
When our readers would like to cease recording, they can click the big red “Stop” button. Playback can be done here as well as viewing more information per any specific file.
Once satisfied, our readers can click the “Wifi Sync” button to transfer the recording(s) to their computer via a connected wireless network. Here a direct IP address to your phone is displayed, which can be entered into your web browser to begin the transfer.
A screen should pop-up on the iPhone to alert you that another device is connecting to the iPhone. Select, “Allow” and our readers should see the following screen confirming the connection.
In our readers’ web browser they should see something like the following screen:
Here recordings can be saved to our readers’ computer for editing, post-production, CD Duplication or uploading to the web. Pretty easy, huh?
