I have the RODE Pro kit and I've been experimenting. I think I can record a stereo interview onto my Android, but I'm not sure how to do it. I've tried Dolby On on the phone and actually recorded on it over the USB-C, but where to go from there?

I'd like to get a lossless recording onto my Mac, but the file is too big for an attachment, and saving it to Drive does not seem to work. I think I set the app to save to the SD card, but now I can't find the file there either, and Dolby has basically NO documentation on this. So where did the file go?

On finding Dolby On's recording files, the support page Where is Dolby On stored says its tracks are kept encrypted in app-specific storage until you use the "Share" feature to export them.

The support page Saving, exporting, and sharing says how to export them, in short: tap the track to select it, then pick Save Audio and pick a folder, or pick More Audio Apps and export to Google Drive et al. (Also see Quick Share on a Mac.) Pick "Lossless audio" to get a .wav file.

Alas, per Does Dolby On record in stereo?:

As of today, Dolby On records in mono. Once the recording has been captured, Dolby On automatically applies stereo widening to the recording along with de-essing, normalization, compression, and fades.

Here are some notes on stereo widening. It isn't going to separate out the two interview microphones.
