    Yeah Phones record in mono, as does my SLR camera, I'v been wanting to get a good quality external stereo mic, as the phone recording sounds better than the SLR.

    I also have a nice digital recorder but need to learn how to make a video to post to Youtube that way.

    I can second all this. I did this kind of work in my youth at a broadcast syndication company. (They used Magnefax machines.) We went through tons of Ampex 631 tape pancakes. Salad days! :)

    Used so much 3M stock back in the day I could tell the difference between 3M 176, 206 and 250 by smell.

    As did I. I used those formulas by the case load at a time. And that was personal. Went through cartons of these tapes at work,
