    View all topics

    To use the microphone, you need the Audio Recorder application which is available on Google Play™. The recorded files are saved as WAV or MP4 files depending on the sound quality option you have chosen. The files are saved in the Recordings folder in the internal storage of your device. The first time you connect the microphone, you need to activate it in sound settings, after that the device automatically uses the microphone. But, if you use more than one five-pole audio accessory with your device, you need to activate the microphone in settings every time before recording.

    Strong wind conditions may cause Stereo Microphone STM10 to turn itself off. If this happens, the Xperia™ built-in microphone will continue the recording. For best results when recording outdoors, use the wind sock included in kit.

    To install the Audio Recorder application

    1. From the Home screen of your device, tap Icn sony home apptray normal, find and tap Play Store.
    2. In Play Store, search for “Audio Recorder ” .
    3. Select Audio Recorder in the result list, then follow the instructions that appear on the screen of your device to install the application.
