Recorder (discontinued)

Here is a more up-to-date app:


This is just a simple recorder to record sounds from the microphone.

Recordings can be started and stopped from the cover. The recordings will be stored in a folder that can be changed in the settings in a wav format. Recordings stored in that folder can be played from the app and can be removed.

Application versions:

File harbour-recorder-0.2.4-1.armv7hl.rpm30.91 KB17/10/2014 - 21:39
File harbour-recorder-0.2.2-1.armv7hl.rpm30.07 KB31/03/2014 - 17:13

The recording is very low leveled. What micro is in use? Shouldn't there be a option to select whether the hands-free or the handest-mode microphone will be used? Any chance to integrate a input level ruler? Or better, a switchable compressor/limitter?

Thanks for sharing your work with us!

When attempting a recording with harbour-recorder Version 0.2.5, there is no file saved. When stopping a recording, the file list flashes onscreen for a fraction of a second, then no file is saved.  I've tried every codec, and the Recordings  folder has read/write perms for all.  This message shows up from journalctl: [W] QPluginServiceProvider::requestService:437 - defaultServicerovider::requestService(): no service found for - "org.qt-project.qt.audiosource"

So either the app fails to acquire the microphone and thus is recording 0 bytes worth of audio, or it is failing silently when it tries to saves a recording file.

I'm on Sailfish on LG Nexus5, 3.4.0-cyanogenmod-g9b77194

Something is not working right. Recorded f.e. 20 seconds but only hear 13 and it stops at 20 when I replay it. Also there is a noise always at second 7 like a scratch.

Could you tell me what codec you are using?

I used Speex

No problems with Vorbis, PCM and FLAC

Sorry for the late reply, was finishing school.

I have tried a few recordings, but I can't really hear scratches. Are you using the Jolla TOH? and do you have at least version (the app) 0.2.4?

Is the source of the application available some where? I mean is this Open Source application?. Btw thanks a lot for this I liked application much but speex format is really a speex contained in Matroska container which requires some work for extracting to play on PC.

The source is available here:

The speex container is fixed, but i've forgotten to update the app over here. It should be fixed now.
