What is Speak Mode and Listen Mode on iOS?

When you first connect a wired device with audio input (like an external microphone or wired headphones) to your iPhone or iPad, the Riverside app will ask if you want to use the Wired connection only as an external microphone.


Tap Yes to enable Speak mode/Listen mode. (Tapping No will use both the audio input and output of the connected device.)


When Speak Mode is on, you can record audio with the external mic. When Listen Mode is on, the device's speakers will play the Studio's audio.

To toggle between the modes, tap the Microphone and Ear button at the bottom of the Studio screen.

To return to standard recording mode and use the built-in mic, disconnect your external mic.
