Recording external audio to S9+

Jun 24, 2018 12:14PM PDT

When I record audio from an external mic into my S9+, is the audio recorded in stereo or mono? I have heard that the S9+ can only record external audio in mono except for the built in mics.

This looks to be simple to answer. Why?

Because I looked at the usual mic and headset/earbud jack and I only see enough connections for stereo headphones and only a single pin for the mic. So there it is. Mono.

Thanks for your reply but does this also apply to the OTG connector?

That I can't answer.

As that is some USB connection, all bets are off if the phone (OS, drivers, apps) support stereo mic recording. They rarely document this so you'll have to try.

Not to leave you without stereo recording.

My son uses a Tascam DR-40 when he needs mobile audio recording.

Thanks for your reply. I actually have a Tascam stand alone audio recorder but what I want is to be able to record external audio directly on to the s9+. Appreciate the help.
