    I'd like to use my smart phone (android) to record rehearsals. I am not concerned with fantastic sound reproduction, but when I have tried recording with my android the result is just nothing but distortion.

    So what I need is an app that will limit the sensitivity of the phone's mic.

    Any ideas?

    Simple recording trick; go to Anna's or some other craft store, and buy a small thin sheet of low density foam. Cut and fold it to make a pocket for the bottom half of your phone. Instant (and cheap) windscreen.

    You'll thank me later...

    I just shut my phone in my bass case when recording during rehearsals. Recordings come out good enough to get a feel for the groove and catch clammed notes.

    Hi-Q has input level control.
