I have been recording our practices with a cell phone for several months now. I have successfully recorded nearly every week, producing signals with waves which are captured entirely within my recording app.
For the last couple of weeks, my recordings have been clipped almost 100%. I believe I know the reasons (we are playing louder; our singer has come into his own and he is belting now).
What I wonder, is if anyone has a method to reduce the signal when recording with a cell phone, in such a way that the integrity is not lost (sure you could wrap the cell phone with a towel, but then you would lose all of your treble).
