AIR 2.0 has been released to Along with the release are a set of sample applications. You can find the Microphone sample application that I had the opportunity to create here:

Its been cool to work on the local Microphone access feature for AIR 2.0/Flash Player 10.1 this year. Now its time to see all the cool stuff people can build on top of the latest features.

    The new feature is great,I’ve been waiting for it for some time.
    I have one question regarding the Air Application that you’ve developed (Microphone Example)
    How can you improve the sound quality of the recorded media?
    I saw you were using a microphone rate of 44 so my guess would be that you skimmed some data from the microphone while transferring it from one byte array to another.

      Currently the Flash Player only supports 8, 11, 16, 22, and 44 sampling rates.

    Very nice work by the way :)

    I know that 44 is the maximum rate but the recorded data sounds bad and I’m sure that it should sound pretty good on 44
    I’m trying to access line in information, in order to make something like a visualizer.
    The MicrophoneExamples app you’ve developed is awesome, still, when played back, it sounds like it was recorded at a quality of 8kbps.
    I was interested to know if this is in AIR 2.0 limitation or you had to strip down some data from the one provided by the Microphone class in order to gain performance or to bypass some limitations.
