It would be nice to have an option in recording to be able to record Mono files. Even if it is just like with the Archos Recorder where it just records the left channel. Also if there could be an option to set a lower bitrate. I used the Archos Recorder for making sermons directly for the web. It was able to record 45-60 minute sermons in around 10MB. The settings that it had for getting that compression was Mono, 16k Hz and a bitrate of 32 kbps. If the MP3 encoder plugin could be modified to enclude thoughs options it would be a great addition.

Even just having Mono being avalable for MP3/WAV would be nice.
This task depends upon

It is now possible setting the record channels to "mono". Though I'm not sure how this will be handled regarding file size.

This is all supported and then some. This request should be closed IMO.
