Audio recording

Hello! I just bought Nokia 8 and I was amazed of it's recording quality! However The audio quality is only excellent when using stock camera app. I do lot's of music stuff and many times I do not need video, only audio Recording. I tried different Recording apps but all of them sounds horrible. If I record same stuff in video it sounds great. I would like to know If there are solution about this. I would really love to use Nokia 8 to record stuff. Thanks Kmeex

I bought Nokia 8 partially because of OZO Audio. I wanted a high quality surround audio recorder always in my pocket. Of course the feature doesn't exist! Such a shame.

The general purpose audio recorders on the market don't support surround sound either.


I asked Nokia support team, but the chat was hilariously absurd. They don't know even what it is, let alone be interested in feedback and feature requests. Not as if I didn't pay for it!


Nokia, please provide an app to record audio. Or at least an API for OZO recording and mixing from the 3 mics!


For your delight, my support chat with Nokia below. World class!


Let's each and everyone ask them about OZO audio recording until they have nightmares about it at night and finally plan for the feature!

 I'm also looking for an audio recording app from Nokia that will utilize the OZO audio, I haven't bought the phone and looking into the LG V30 because it HAS a wonderful audio recording app, I have an interest in the Nokia but concerned about the lack of an audio recording app and also the lack of a built in radio, also, I'm not sure anyone reads this thread so we might be waiting our time here,

Hughmnyksj AudioRec has optional Automatic Gain Control, but as far as I know you can not store recordings to common storage area by it in Android 8, so they can be used by the app only.

But you can upload your recordings to cloud by AudioRec nevertheless.

Hi Janis Have just installed AudioRec Pro and it sounds great. Manual gain adjust is what I want, and it's here. I'll be testing it with my samba orchestra very soon. Interestingly, the middle mic puts the sound from the mic inside the ear aperture bang in the middle of the sound picture. I have been able to prove the resilience of the Nokia 8 mics while recording spatial-audio video right next to a repinique, a Brazilian drum with a very taught plastic head played - or rather slapped - with a 12" plastic stick that distorts horribly on lesser mics (e.g. the one in an iPad mini 4 or iPhone 7)...

I am using Nokia 8.


Nokia should provide built in app for audio recording with OZO effect.

So the workaround is to record a video then extract the sound for that on a computer. Better than nothing, but not great.
You should buy Iphone 7 or samsung
