Mono (Monaural)

Mono (Monaural): Used to describe the recording of single channel audio. Most recorders today have the ability to record stereo, which mixes two channels of audio. Single channel audio contains ½ the data as stereo audio and is therefore ½ the file size of a stereo file containing the same recording time. [ Audio Glossary ]
