Upload a recording audio file coming from any external source.

Mono/Stereo recordings upload

If the source recording audio file is Stereo, then you can keep the same format within Imagicle Call Recording by applying the following setting, accessible only through a RDP session to the Imagicle on-prem instance. In case of an Imagicle UCX Cloud Suite, please contact Imagicle Support for help.


  • Locate and edit the following file: \StonevoiceAS\Apps\Recorder\Settings\Recorder.defaults
  • Add this line: EnableSpeechAnalyticsOptimization=1
  • Save file and restart Imagicle Call Recording service

This setting is mostly important if you are leveraging Imagicle Voice Analytics application, to separate local/remote party call segments during transcription.
