After doing a few test recordings from radio and using the microphone, I noticed that the recordings are made at different quality levels. Radio recordings are made at 768 kbps/24Khz, while voice recordings are only at 256 kbps/16Khz.
I’m curious, why is the voice recording set to such a lower quality level by default? I understand that voice recordings are mono, while radio recordings are stereo, but I’d rather get the full quality possible with the mic by default. Is it something that could be modified with a future firmware update? An adjustible quality setting would be a great option to have.
While having the voice recording option on the Clip is a great feature and will prove very useful to me, I was hoping for better sound quality, to use it as a sort of field-recording sketch pad while on the go. Still can, just not the way I’d hoped.
