Bat Recorder app for Android

Product Description
$5.99
Maximum quantity available reached.
Bat Recorder is an Android app designed to record ultrasonic audio signals using an Android smartphone or tablet in conjunction with a separately purchased USB ultrasonic microphone (Please note that USB microphones require an Android device that supports USB On-The-GO).

The Bat Recorder app cannot actually be purchased here at BCM. You can get it in the Google Play Store and is the best $5.99 you will ever spend on a bat detector. We like it so much & use it at workshops we feel it is a no-brainer to add to your toolbox, especially if you have a high-end microphone such as the Pettersson M500-384 or any of the Binary Acoustic USB microphones.

The app can be used to record and analyze ultrasonic bat echolocation calls as well as other high frequency bioacoustic signals such as cetacean calls and insect sounds. The app provides generic support for many 16-bit USB microphones , ultrasonic or otherwise, that support the USB audio class specifications, such as the Pettersson Elektronik M500-384 ultrasonic microphone, the Dodotronic Ultramic USB ultrasonic microphones or Hydromic USB preamplifier, Avisoft's UltraSoundGate 116Unb ultrasonic microphone, or the non-ultrasonic Samson GoMic. The app also supports Binary Acoustic Technology's miniMIC, the AR125, the AR150FG, and the AR180 USB ultrasonic microphones. By default, the app will use the highest sampling rate supported by the microphone - however, other sampling rates can be specified in the app's Settings if the USB microphone supports doing so.

​The app can also be used to record output from many heterodyne (Pettersson D100/D200), frequency division (Pettersson D230), or time expansion bat detectors (such as Batbox's Baton XD, which supports the latter two modes) by using an audio cable plugged into the TRRS jack. In addition, the app can be used with your Android device's built-in microphone or an external TRRS microphone to record audible sounds such as bird songs. Please note, however, that in these cases the incoming audio will not be ultrasonic. This app displays both a real-time spectrogram (linear or logarithmic scale), wave amplitude plot, and power spectrum of incoming signals and previously made recordings (saved as uncompressed, geotagged WAV files). The display can be zoomed, and the visualization can be enhanced using a variety of configurable color palettes. 

This app supports the ability to audibly monitor ultrasonic sounds simultaneously while recording using either real-time frequency division, heterodyne tuning (either manual or automatic), or using a low pass filter. In addition to these modes, recorded ultrasonic signals can  be played back in the audible range using time expansion.  Time expanded versions of recordings can also be exported (A few samples can be found here.)

The app features a resizeable overlay that displays the power spectrum for any point in a recording. In addition, in order to  facilitate call identification, the frequency and intensity at peak power at the given point in time is also displayed.

Bat Recorder can be configured to automatically trigger recordings based on frequency and intensity. Text messages or email notifications can be sent whenever a recording is automatically triggered.

The app also features a 'caliper' tool, which allows you to easily measure the frequency range and duration of a sound pulse - or the time between pulses - by simply double tapping. Fine adjustments can be made by first selecting the tool by using a long press, then using scaling and dragging gestures to resize and reposition the axes.
Bat Recorder can save GPS location and other metadata inside the WAV recordings, and supports several different metadata formats, including Myotisoft's GUANO format, Adobe's XMP format, and Wildlife Acoustic's WAMD format.

Finally, the app supports several different languages - in addition to English, the app is localized to German, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, Norwegian and Swedish.

Bat Recorder is NOT sold out, just we can't sell it here. It is available for purchase in the Google Play Store. PDF versions of the manual can be found here.

  • 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

  • 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.
