Recording Interviews

BlueKeeper allows you to send mic and line level signals into your wireless phone while maintaining excellent separation between your voice and the caller. The stereo output jack on the back of the unit provides your voice on one channel (in full fidelity) and the caller’s voice on the other channel. Connect this jack to your sound card or recorder. It’s perfect for radio or podcast interview recordings. The balanced XLR output jack contains only the caller’s voice. Connect to your mixing console or even to a PA system for everyone to hear.

Connections

The 3.5 mm stereo line input jack allows recordings to be sent into your Bluetooth device. The 3.5 mm stereo line output jack provides your full bandwidth send mix on the left channel and Bluetooth caller audio on the right channel. The headphone output gives you a mix of the XLR input, 3.5 mm input, and Bluetooth audio. This same overall mix is also provided on a 3.5 mm mono mic level output jack.

*HD Voice: While standard phone calls have a narrow bandwidth of 300 Hz to 3.4 kHz, HD Voice calls offer 50 Hz to 7 kHz bandwidth. The additional 1.5 octaves on the low end gives voice a more natural sound, while the additional upper octave dramatically improves speech clarity and intelligibility.

*Wireless HD Calls: To take advantage of this extended bandwidth, both phones on the call must support HD Voice, and both phones must be on the same carrier, in coverage areas that support HD Voice.
