In the case of digital evidence in the form of recording evidence, the master of the recording evidence is presented and heard at the trial. Master recording evidence needs to be heard in person because the recording evidence is very easy to manipulate or engineer. Therefore, if the master of evidence is not clear, then the duplication and duplication of the evidence is carried out an increase in audio quality (enhancing).
