Re: Recording voice in ipod ?

hi
if you looking for free recording using linux os so use this

warning:

* Loading iPod Linux may void your warranty. However, your warranty can be restored with a simple restore.
* If you record long files and rush through the process, the iPod may hang - although your file should be kept intact.
* It is not supported for all iPods.
* A 3G iPod running Apple software version 3.2 will correctly record only at a sample rate of 8kHz. Attempts to record at other sample rates will yield corrupt, unplayable files that, moreover, will not be transferred to the Voice Memos playlist.
* Using your earbuds to record can damage your iPod, because of an incorrect impedance, which could result in blowing out your driver. (Technical Note: most microphones are about 32ohms, and most earbuds are about 60ohms (ohm is a unit of impedance).


Start:

1. Install iPod Linux. If you have a first-, second-, or third-generation iPod, this can be easily done through the downloads and instructions at the link listed below. Some other solutions exist for the newer iPods, but they aren't "officially" supported by iPod Linux. See external links below for more information. N.B. If you have a 1G, 2G, or Mini, you will not be able to record, though iPod Linux will install and all of the other features will be there.
2.

Boot into Linux from your iPod. To do this, eject and unplug your iPod. It should reset automatically. If it doesn't, then reset it (flick the hold switch on, then off, and hold down "MENU" and "Select" until it resets). As soon as you see the Apple logo, flick on the hold switch. After the Apple logo goes, you should see briefly a picture of a penguin holding an iPod. Then a bunch of text should whiz past. Now you may turn off the hold switch. If you use the new boot loader it will give you a menu to chose which os to boot to.

3. After the text has disappeared, your iPod should boot into iPod Linux. Even if the backlight was on when the text went past, it will probably switch off now. Hold down "MENU" to switch it on. Scroll down to the "Extras" menu (just like you would normally) and select "Recordings." Click the select button.

4. Adjust the settings. Scroll down to the bottom where it says "Sample Rate" and click the select button to change it. 8kHz is the default setting and produces the lowest-quality audio. Even so, the audio is perfectly legible and will sound OK, but a little fuzzy. The maximum is 96kHz , which is excellent quality, but makes enormous files and sometimes skips a lot. Instead of these, go for the 32, 44.1, or 88.2 kHz options. Try them out to see what you like best

5. Decide how you are going to record, using the "Mic Record" or the "Line In Record" options. "Mic record" functions by using a microphone or headphones plugged into the headphone jack, and "Line in Record" works by plugging your iPod into a dock, and then plugging headphones or microphone for recording purposes into the line out plug on your dock (normally in the middle on the back of the dock).

6. Record.

* If you've selected "Mic Record," then plug either a microphone or the Apple earbuds (other headphones are less easy to use) into the headphone port. Now, select "Mic Record" and click the select button. Press the select button and begin to record. To do this, yell, scream, talk, or sing into the LEFT earbud (marked with an "L") or yell, scream, talk, or sing into the microphone if you plugged one in instead.
* If you've selected "Line In Record", then plug your iPod into a dock (make sure the dock is unplugged) and plug a microphone or headphones into the dock's line out plug. Press the select button to begin recording, and yell, scream, talk, or sing into the microphone or left channel of the headphones.

7. To pause the recording, press play/pause, and press the action button again when your recording is over.

8. Playback your file by going back to the "Recordings" menu, selecting "Playback", and scrolling down to find your file. (Files are named for when they were created; the newest file should be at the bottom.) You can also play them back using the iPod's default system. Reboot your iPod, let Apple's default OS load, then go into the Extras menu, then the "Voice Memos" menu, and select your recording.

If you are recording at a frequency higher than 8KHz, you should wait 5-10 seconds after the recording starts before you actually begin speaking.

Re: Recording voice in ipod ?

hi
yes there is recording option present for ipod and for that you should not spoil us original os. the recording folder that u find is inbuilt in ipod .where
you can perform recording with Micro Memo connector .



try this
Recording a voice memo

1. Connect a microphone or Apple iPod Earphone to your Voice Memo supported iPod. On the iPod (5th generation), connect the microphone to the dock connector.
2. The Voice Memos menu or screen appears.
3. On the iPod classic (120 GB) and iPod (5th generation), you can choose the recording quality by choosing High Quality or Low Quality. Select “Low Quality” (22 kHz, mono) to save space, or “High Quality” (44.1 kHz, stereo) for a better sound.
4. To begin recording, select Record or Start Recording.
5. Hold the microphone a few inches from your mouth and speak. To pause recording, select Pause.**
6. When you finish, select the Menu button and then Stop and Save. Your saved recording is listed by date and time.***



** When recording voice memos on the iPod nano (4th generation), selecting the Center button while recording will create chapters.

***On your iPod nano (4th generation) and iPod classic (120 GB), you can also label your recording with one of several provided labels.
Playing a recording



Select Extras > Voice Memos and select the recording. Note: The Voice Memos menu item doesn’t appear until you connect a microphone.
Playing a recording on an iPod nano (4th generation) or iPod classic (120 GB)



Select Voice Memos > Recordings and select the recording. Note: The Voice Memos menu item doesn’t appear until you connect a microphone.
Transferring a recording to a computer



Manually

Voice memos are saved in a Recordings folder on iPod in the WAV file format. If you enable iPod for disk use, you can drag voice memos from the folder to copy them.

Synchronize

If iPod is set to update songs automatically and you record voice memos, the voice memos are automatically downloaded to a playlist in iTunes when you connect iPod. Once downloaded, the voice memos are removed from the Voice Memos folder on your iPod. To play the voice memos that have been synchronized to your computer in iTunes, select the Voice Memos playlist on the left side of the iTunes window. To play the synchronized voice memos on the iPod, select the Voice Memos playlist in the Music menu, not the Voice Memos menu in the Extras menu.




Supported iPod Models:

* iPod classic (120 GB)
* iPod nano (4th generation)
* iPod nano (2nd generation)
* iPod (5th generation) (running iPod Software 1.1.2 or later*)
* iPod with color display (running iPod Software 1.0 or later)
* iPod photo (running iPod Software 1.0 or later)
* iPod (Click Wheel) (running iPod Software 3.0 or later)
* iPod (dock connector) (running iPod Software 2.1 or later)
