Microphone Recording

What am I going to be recording?

Glean will record through your microphone. Glean will use whatever microphone is set as your default input device.

If you've got more than 1 microphone connected then access your system settings and make sure the correct one is set as your default ( see below)


Starting Recording

  1. Click the Record button
  2. Choose Microphone from the menu that opens

Record button selected showing the dropdown menu with first option of Microphone highlighted.

Recording starts straight away and you'll see your  timer start counting up (#1) and the audio chunks appearing in your feed (#2):

If you don't see the chunks appear then there might be an issue with your microphone; check that everything is set up properly using the steps below.
