QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk BCM a Question
Hi, I am using a Huawei MediaPad M5 lite 10, on Android 8.0.0 and when I plug the mic ( tried with M500-384 and U384) the app correctly launch but no sound signal can be seen. Is there a compatibility issue? Thanks, Eléonore
Hello- BCM is unable to test or provide support for this particular configuration; we do not develop the app. Please contact the BatRecorder developer at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digitalbiology.audio&hl=en_US&gl=US
Also post the question of the facebook group Bat Call Analysis Workshop and you may find user support: https://www.facebook.com/groups/437808079587006
I've bought this app and a phone (Nokia G20, Android 11). I have a formatted SD card in the phone. It is not seen by the app. I've made two recordings. They can't be opened: only the folder is shown, and on the right that there are two recordings. So: have I bought the wrong phone, is Android 11 not supported, did I miss something (I'm an iPhone user). TIA
Hello- Please note you must connect a compatible USB ultrasonic microphone. In settings there may be an option to save files to the SD card rather than internal memory, so double check that. Please see support for this app at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.digitalbiology.audio&hl=en_US&gl=US
Hi there, I am having trouble using bat recorder with Dodotronic 384k Ultrasonic mic. It used to work well before I upgraded my device to Android 11. The app turns on and monitors audio without the microphone plugged in. But as soon as the mic is connected, the android device freezes and crashes every time. I have updated the firmware of the microphone and this is still happening. Could anyone offer any advice with this? thanks
Hi- sounds like an Android or Batrecorder issue. You'll want to contact Batrecorder for support. https://digitalbiology.com/bat-recorder
Also joing the very active Facebook group Bat Call Analysis Workshop https://www.facebook.com/groups/437808079587006 and post the issue there for user help.
hello, this is Shin Takizawa from JAPAN. I would like to know if its possible to customize your Bat Recorder App for our different purpose to use. We would like to use your APP for not to catch Bat but just simply to catch High Frequency Sound in the atomosphere. So most of your functions are already fits with our needs, but some of the functions we would like to change such as mapping in the Google map with Bat Characters to simple sign. Or language change to Japanese. Sorry for asking this, but could you please consider it? best regards,
Hello - the BatRecorder app records any high frequency sound the microphone detects, not just bats. It records anything and does not attempt to filter out other sounds. For app feature suggestions, please contact the developer directly https://digitalbiology.com/bat-recorder
Does the app support the batbox baton (not baton xd) ?
No- neither Baton has a USB port connection, and that is where Batrecorder expects to find the audio input. There are likely other apps that will display the output from a Baton using an adapter. This is a rapidly changing field, it is best to look for compatible app suggestions by posting to the facebook group "Bat Call Sound Analysis Workshop" as this is a very active worldwide user group.
Does this app support Elekon Batscanner? I'd like to get IDable Sonagrams from the detected bat calls using the TRRS jack of the Elekon. Is that possible? Thanks in advance!
I beleive the Bat Recorder app requires a USB ultrasonic microphone such as the Pettersson M500, most of the Binary Acoustic family, and some Dodotronic mics, and others. While the Bat Recorder description page https://digitalbiology.com/bat-recorder does not specifically mention the BatScanner, it does mention the Baton XD with is similar. As we have not tested the BatScanner with the Bat Recorder app please contact the developer https://digitalbiology.com/contact for the best answer.
