RECAP is a small audio adapter that plugs in your phone and lets you record calls into another device – phone, tablet, digital voice recorder, PC, Mac, and more.
No fees, no 3-way call, no internet. Simple, secure and private
✅ Both incoming and outgoing calls
✅ Both sides of the call
✅ Calls and any audio: Skype, WhatsApp, Voicemail
✅ With virtually any device*: iPhone, Android, PC, Mac.

Works as a simple audio splitter.
The call is captured and its signal is converted such that it looks like an ‘external mic’ for recording devices. All is done in hardware so no special apps are required!
Recordings are stored locally. No cloud risks.
Keep recordings local for your ultimate privacy. A few days pass by without news of a data breach in cloud servers. Think twice before trusting your data to 3rd party servers.

No apps are required. Never goes outdated. It will work on any future device with a compatible audio port.

How to use RECAP, the phone call recording adapter?
RECAP goes between your phone and headset, as shown below, providing an output to a recording device.
Compatibility: the “CALL” device must have a 3.5mm combo port and a compatible headset. The “REC” device must have a 3.5mm stereo microphone input port.
Note: Additional adapters are required if your device does not have the correct port. See FAQ below.
RECAP S2 has a stereo output. You get one channel on each side of the call, making the ideal technical solution for recording phone calls.
As shown in the sound amplitude diagram above, what you say in the microphone is delivered to the right channel, and what you hear on the call goes to the left channel.
Separate channels are ideal for audio processing. If you have an unbalanced call volume (one side much louder than the other), you can use an audio software tool, such as Audacity, to amplify the audio of one channel and balance it out.
