Downloading Files

Last Updated: Feb 20, 2019 09:45AM GMT

You can transfer your Sonocent Recorder files to your computer and review them using Audio Notetaker. 

There are four different options depending on whether you're using an iOS or Android device and what connectivity is available:

Wifi Transfer (IOS and Android)
iTunes Transfer (IOS only)
File Explorer (Android Only)
File Sharing (IOS and Android)

Wifi Transfer (IOS and Android)

You need to ensure that both your computer and mobile device are connected to the same wifi network. Some public networks will not allow devices to be discovered, you may need to set up your own private network or try again on a different network.

You will also need Apple's Bonjour installed on your computer - if you do not have iTunes then you can just install Bonjour here:

Please note that the version of iTunes available on the Windows Store does not include Bonjour. 

Open the Sonocent Recorder App and press the transfer button:

You will then go to the app's wifi transfer page, displaying a four digit code:

Open Audio Notetaker. You need to open the Portable Device manager; open the App menu (green button in the top left) and choose Manage -> View Portable Devices

After a few seconds your device will be displayed in the left hand pane. Click on your device and enter the four digit code that is displayed in the Sonocent Recorder app.

Once this is done you will see a list of all the files on your device.

You can select individual files to copy to your PC or you can choose to copy everything (files with the same names will not be overwritten).

You can also choose to delete the files from your device after they have been copied.

Files will be copied to your default Recording folder (You can change this in Settings), normally, .../Documents/Audio Notetaker Recordings/Portable Device

Once you have copied your file(s) they will show up in the All Projects File tab, where you can open and edit the file using all of Audio Notetaker's features.
