Issue #1332 wontfix
Former user created an issue

Hi! Once again thank you for your hard work Alex!

Here's the thing. Is it possible, to get a High quality sound output via USB (Audio monitoring)? I often use my t2i for ADR or recordinc SFX (since i don't have the money to spend on a high end mic), and i am very pleased with the quality it gives! But the output quality via USB is not so good, so i have to record it via movie mode, then extract the audio from the video clip. Is there a way, to record only audio? Or even better, is there a way to get a HQ output directly for live recording?

Thanx in advance!

    If you only need the audio, you can shoot at lowest bitrate and with display off.

    It might be possible in future, there is a hidden voice recording functionality, but I have no idea how to use it.

    There is no big problem, but the sound quality is obviously better when extracted from video.
