eMic mode functions

eMic mode is provided by eMic Monitor software. It works when eMicBT is connected to a computer in Headset mode and eMic Monitor software is running. There are many useful one-button-click functions in eMic mode: recording an voice message and attaching recorded audio file to the new email message (“Rec and Attach”), recording and uploading voice messages on the server (“Rec and upload to eMic4all server”), recording a memo (“MEMO”), recording of VoIP conversations in a file (“Rec Skype/MSN”). See the table below for more details.
It is possible to assign any of eMic functions to F1 or F2 button. To assign the function to the button you have to choose the desired function from the list in the main eMic Monitor window. See the picture below:


Note: In the software main window (see the picture above) F1 button (see drawing in the chapter 5) corresponds to the button “Letter” and the button F2 – corresponds to the button “Tape”.

Using eMic and Stereo mode

eMic Monitor software works with eMic-BT in ”Headset” mode (with low quality of sound, intended for speech only). If you prefer to listen to the music the ”Stereo” mode is more useful, since the sound quality is much better. The eMic Monitor software lets you use both modes “Headset”+”Stereo” and it is easy to switch between them by shortly pressing Main button (see drawing in the chapter 5).
