About this app

Auto audio recorder that automatically starts recording when the sound intensity exceeds the threshold, skipping relative silence, especially suitable for long-time recording scenes, such as snoring or monitoring breathing during sleep ( snore + apnea, cough etc.), dream / sleep talk recording, meeting and class recording etc.

Very easy to use with the help of automatic settings. Not only can it skip many hours of silence, but it can also keep the original time when the recording occurred.

More other functions such as folder management /multiple file sharing, merging & deleting /audio compressor ("wav" -> "m4a", saving storage space) /auto play and waveforms for ".wav" files etc.

💡 Features:

- Automatically skip sounds that are weaker than the threshold, treated as "silence". The silence duration is adjustable between "1s" and "40s".

- Be able to record in the background, even when the screen is off.

- Easy to use, the voice activation setting can be automatic, after selection, simply click the power button icon to start. You can also manually adjust the threshold and silence settings. For more information, please check FAQ section below.

- Support sensitivity options (Low, Medium and High) for Automatic settings, this sensitivity is relative to the background noise level.

- Audio player with auto-play function, highlighting the current playing recording and auto-scrolling etc.

- Records are automatically named according to the date and time they occurred, and sorted on the timeline.

- Powerful recording management, such as labeling, multi-file sharing/deleting etc.

- Audio file converter from .wav to .m4a, saving storage space.

- Save recordings safely in many special cases, such as shut down/low battery/low storage.

For premium users, in addition to no ads, there are some extra features unlocked:
- Folder management. Manual or automatic folder creator, located on the "My folders" page (the "+" button) and settings page(the switch button).
- Multi-file merge. All recorded clips (.wav) can be merged into one single file, on the recording file page ( "Merge multiple files" item).
- Waveform for ".wav" files. The waveform of the ".wav" file can be displayed during playback, this visual pattern can help users tell which files are snores and which are sleep talk. Generally speaking, a snore is a regular wave, while talking is more likely to be irregular. Located on the ".wav" file player ( the waveform checkbox).
- Countdown timer. Set timer to turn off recorder, on the home page ( the timer icon).

❓Q & A,

Q: What are the "threshold" and "silence" settings?
A: The threshold is a reference (1~100) for users to determine how loud the sound is to activate recording, adjust it based on the environmental noise level. The silence setting is used to make the weaker sound below the threshold last for a few seconds before stopping automatically in order to maintain the continuity of the sound, the range is (1s~40s).
In short, the threshold is for starting and the silence setting is for stopping.
E.g, in a quiet place, for snore recording, the threshold = "4"~"8"/the silence=10s, for talking, the threshold ="2"~"5"/the silence = 4s+. Those settings are for your reference, might need to be adjusted slightly.

Q: Why do I get the "Your MIC is muted" message?
A: This app is not designed for call recording. Due to privacy protection, the latest Androids start blocking MIC sources when you are on a call.

Q: Why does this app in the background stop recording when another recorder is started at the same time ?
A: Starting from Android 10, the system allows multiple recording apps to be started at the same time, but only one is recording (except for the voice recognition assistant), and the other will be blocked from recording based on privacy protection and priority.

Pretty good app. I really like the added option to download silence skipping so I can set it to automatically record any sound and with silence skipping I can skip past all that wasted time listening to white noise and skip ahead to what's important. Really nice app! Not to mention it's FREE!!! And in my book" If it's free, it's for me!" I mean who doesn't like getting stuff for free right. Awesome app you guys. Really dig it!

It does everything I was wanting in a voice activated recording, the problem is in the playback mode. Google pop ups block the screen to a point that you're unable to read the file listing. I didn't have a problem with Android 10 but it's impossible to change with Android 11. I would buy the app just to get rid of the pop ups.

This seems to work ok except that it plays a notification sound whenever recording is turned on, so the recording captures the sound, which makes the recording useless without editing. Notifications for the app can't be turned off and are audible even when I set the phone and/or notifications to silent. Is this supposed to alert people that you're recording? It doesn't do that, because it's the same sound as for other notifications. I have other voice recorder apps that don't do this. --Lowering the system sound doesn't help. It still sounds at the same volume. You have to turn off touch sound and put the phone on Do Not Disturb. Again, other apps with this functionality don't have this problem.

That is called "Touch Sound" for screen selection reminder, an optional feature which can be turned off in the phone sound settings, or you can lower the system sound (not notification sound) if want to lower the touch. The app doesn't capture that, what you heard when playback is "Touch Sound" when clicking, instead of coming from a recording

What's new

1. Refactored with the latest IDE, improved stability.
2. Minor changes to date formats and turned off default system sounds.
3. Added a message to remind users that the MIC is muted when Android blocks recording due to privacy protections.
