    One thing I've noticed... is if I use the voice recorder app, and then go into a call, the voice recorder stops.

    And so, it doesn't let you record audio using 2 apps at the same time.

    My question is.... is this a feature built into the hardware, or built into the software?

    Like, would it be possible to rewrite the operating system to allow 2 apps to use the record function simultaneously, or does the hardware prevent that?

    Thanks.

    For example, on Windows, I can record with Windows voice recorder, and with Audacity-- at the same time, and both produce a recording.

    So I know there's no hardware limitation with my computer's hardware.

    I'm wondering if this is the case with an HTC Hero.

    Does anyone know the answer to this question?
