That is a good option to have.

With further testing, I still get clicks an noises as with other applications in my recordings. This seems to be a problem of the Galaxy S and I note that the last update of tapeMachine mentions an attempt to fix it (unfortunately still a problem here). Poo. I hope the developer can sort that one out.

I released a new android audio record called memovoice, you can find it looking for com.memento or memovoice.
This is the link in appbrain: memovoice - Search Android Apps on AppBrain

You can record arbitrary lenght audio, share it via mail or bluetooth and you can also set memovoice notification to recall the note at specific time.
It provided with widget to start quickly a new record.

graphics is very accurate.

I hope you like it

I've recently switched to UltimateVoiceRecorder for my class lectures. Seems pretty good in the two weeks that I've been using it. Records in .3gp or .mp4 format and it doesn't have a time limit on recordings. It doesn't have a email function though but I connect my phone to the comp a lot anyways so its not a big deal for me.

TapeMachine just added .mp3 capability! I still think it's the best overall and keeps getting better!

Whenever we develop any Android app we uses the Android provided SDK. In the case of audio playback and recording, it seems the provided option for recording is MPEG_4, THREE_GPP, RAW_AMR. So most Android apps that has audio recording files will be in those format.

If you found an Android app audio recording that offer formats e.g the popular mp3 or even wav, most likely the app developer uses external Java library to do the conversion. External as in stuff not from the Android SDK itself.

I hope this clear up end users expectation on why so few Android app audio recording format support say mp3, wav etc etc. Those that do support most likely uses additional libraries from outside the Android SDK to achieve that.

And lastly, an audio recording Android app shouldn't need the Full Internet Access permissions at all.

I just downloaded Tape Machine on my Xoom. It's exactly the sort of thing I was looking for.

Unfortunately, my aim is to compile a few tracks that I can overlap on top of each other in Movie Sutdio. When I try to use the song in that, it says it can't add the track.

If I could get some confirmation that one of the other file formats (MP3, for example) works for this, then I'd buy the professional version. Has anyone tried using Movie Studio in this way?

Thanks!

I have never used Movie Studio but I have tested MP3 in TapeMachine and it does work. At least, the conversion to MP3 works. Unfortunately, the Eris apparently lacks the horsepower needed to record directly to MP3, since the option is disabled for my phone.

I LOVE TapeMachine and use it all the time. However, I do have a couple issues with it (but they may be Android issues, for all I know)...

Phone calls interrupt recordings.

If you record a phone call on speaker phone, it records fine but the person on the other end can't hear you (unless you pause the recording)!

Default Best Recording to MP3 Option in Android!

You're all going to laugh... I have tried the rest, but the best option to record straight to MP3 (so the rest of the WORLD can use the file) is Ringdroid.

Yes, it's intended to create custom ringtones, but it also allows you to record your own. It's not the fastest option and does not have a dedicated widget, but if you want to work with MP3s, it can't be beat. It also has an impressive wave form editor. One word of caution: do not switch apps, hit the power button or otherwise turn off your screen or you will stop the recording (it's not very stealthy either!).

Other Options:

I've always liked Voice Recorder for it's one-click widget and it adjusts your media volume, leading you to believe it must be optimizing somehow, but it is buggy and has crashed on several occasions. It also uses the 3GP format, so I got rid of it awhile ago.

iRecord looks nice and works well, though very basic. It does allow you to switch apps or turn off your screen. It also places an icon in the notification bar to indicate recording. It shows an ad at the top and also uses the dreaded 3GP format.

Default Dictadroid - new voice recorder app

Hi,

I stumbled across this post and wanted to mention that there is a new app available on the Android Market called Dictadroid.

I developed Dictadroid with the goal of making a simple but powerful voice recorder for dictation. I believe it addresses most of the issues mentioned in this post.

Please download Dictadroid and let me know what you think. You feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Boris

Hi,

Thanks for sharing so much information on how to record on Android. I have noticed that there is a way on how to record audio on desktop. I am also interested in recording voice of myself and record funny audio on the internet.

This maybe a bit different than what most people do with voice recorders. I want the option to start recording, then be able to append to that recording if I need to. Basically start recording, then open it up and add to it if I need to without having to start a new recording. An example: I maybe recording a to do list, and need to stop, I would like to just add to the list without having a bunch of recordings that pertain to the same list.

TapeMachine allows you to append to recordings with certain file formats, such as .wav.

You should experiment with the free version and different formats to see if it's what you have in mind.

I'm looking for a recorder that works like a dictaphone and allows me to email the file to my office. currently using Live Pro, which works great, but does not allow you to go back and edit a file without erasing. It also allows WAV files. Anyone have a suggestion of a better app for dictaphone use?

Features:
Sound Great
Record Gain manual or auto.
Easy to go navigate a recording in playback.

I recently downloaded an app called ''HI-Q MP3 Rec (Lite)''
It lets you record up to 10 minutes with good sound.

Hope I helped

Default EverNote for quick voice notes

Use Evernote for quick voice notes. It's a note taking system that exists in the cloud and also copies everything to all your systems so the notes are available on all your platforms and phone. It's fantastic! I don't think I would use it for long voice recordings but for short notes to your wife .. who can share your evernote notebooks ... it's great!

I have an Olympus digital recorder that I like very much. However, I was delighted to try the voice recorder app on my Droid. I recorded an hour-long class, and the quality was very good.
The problem came when I tried to send it -- first to drop box, then via Gmail. Both returned excellent recordings -- but only the first 15 minutes.
I want to be able to export the recording to my computer somehow (DropBox or email does fine) -- and then to be able to make edits, add an intro, etc. When I imported the file into Audacity to edit it -- that's when I discovered the problem.
Anybody know why only 15 minutes exported? The whole recording is on the phone.
AND -- can you recommend an app that will actually send 60+ minutes?

ALSO -- I use Aimersoft Media Converter. It is great for audio and video!
Thanks!

How about a zero-touch solution? Sensory has software for Android that does speech trigger word detection, and from there can launch an app or make a phone call. Here is a video of it running on Android:

but in fact you can use it on non-Android devices also:

No I don't work for them but I think their technology is underappreciated.

I find TapeMachine to work well for stealth recording. It can run in the background with only a round dot showing on the notification at top. I've recorded hours and hours. In my case I was doing a user study on a new interface and needed to get clear recordings of the user's voice and comments. I've used it also for recording a language class that meets 1x/week, so it's great to listen to refresh my memory.

I use TapeMachine all the time to record training seminars and meetings with clients. It works really well. You can even edit in-app, when it's too inconvenient to use a PC. I highly recommend it.

This is my favorite app for recording meetings and taking notes. The only things I wish it could do would be...
  1. Have a sensitivity/senor bar of some kind.
  2. Save in other formats.
  3. Pick location of saved recordings.
Other than that, it's NICE! Thanks!

Thumbs up Update on 14 Sept 2012

I've tried dozens of recorders, but never found one that I like.

I came to the conclusion that the best for Android is currently VOICE PRO.
Unfortunately it is not free, it also costs enough (9.90 euro) compared to the average of other recorders, but then once I realized that I was bought a front audio platform of respect.

This app converts to more than 10 audio formats, add effects, mix .... does it all!

here is the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.voicepro

Tried virtually hundreds of recorder apps because I not only wanted to record my voice but also my piano practice. Now, a couple of days ago I found the Field Recorder at Google play. If you ask me I really recommend that!

It does it all in a very high quality plus stereo!!! and I managed to change the settings so that the recorder stops and continues to record as if by magic skipping my singing or playing pauses.

Actually, it was a little bit tricky to do the setup, but now it works so good.

Yeah, thanks for the clue, Steronida. The tool was easy to find and is really professional. But all the options are everything else than verbously explained. And the web site is only in German. However, it wasnt too difficult for me to figure out how to make the recorder do the same as yours does.

PS.: After 8 days of heavy use, I must add: This was really worth buying! It turned my phone into a good working field recorder. A very fitting name.
