Dell Streak AudioRecord

If you’re recording audio on Android, you might have found a problem with the Dell Streak. Seems that audio data it produces via AudioRecord is “chipmunk’d”, i.e. sped up and high pitched.

The thing is, the Streak appears to report that it can send you data at any sort of sampling rate you choose, but then sends data at 48KHz anyway, regardless of what you picked. Kinda broken. I don’t know whether it’s a Dell-specific driver that’s broken, or something in their build, or whatever. Really can’t say.

But if you have an interest following the progress of that problem, you might be interested in watching the bug report I filed.
