Voice Memos lets you use iPod touch as a portable recording device using the built-in
microphone, iPod touch or Bluetooth headset mic, or supported external microphone.
Recordings using the built-in microphone are mono, but you can record stereo using an
external stereo microphone.
Note: External microphones must be designed to work with the iPod touch headset jack or Dock
Connector. Look for accessories marked with the Apple “Made for iPod” or “Works with iPod” logo.
