Install Groundwire or Acrobits Softphone
When you first open the app, you need to configure an account with a Voice over IP provider. If you don’t have one, you need to go to a provider’s website and sign up, e.g.:
These offer cheap rates and a wide array of phone numbers.
Once you have your account configured in Groundwire or Acrobits Softphone, go to Keypad > > Preferences > Call Recording and turn on Multichannel
You can configure to have your recordings sent to your email, but if the files get big, you can also access them from the History tab. You’ll see a little answering machine symbol on the left, if the file has a recording. You can access it by clicking on the on the right.
Clicking on the next to the recording again gives you sharing options like AirDrop on iOS.
Recordings are stereo with outgoing audio on one side and incoming audio on the other channel. For editing it will be useful to split the stereo into two mono tracks/files.
