Using Record Sound Command

I'm starting to try out the Record Sound command and I find it a bit puzzling.

1. One thing that is very unclear is when the recording parameters like recordFormat and recordCompression are set, what exactly is set? The IDE? The recording that is to be created next? Are these settings saved until later, or do they need to be set every time a recording is done, or the IDE is launched?

2. The Answer Record dialog doesn't allow setting the recordFormat. When, via a script, I set the recordFormat to "movie", the recordCompression (I tried ima4) is ignored.

All this in LC 6.1.2.
