iXY Microphone brings high-quality stereo recording to 30-pin iDevices
The built-in microphone on your iOS device is fine for conversations, but when it comes to recording high-quality audio, it's somewhat inadequate. Rode's new iXY 30-pin plug-in microphone changes that, offering true stereo recording and companion apps that boasts a litany of audio customization options.
Two versions of Rode's iOS app are available: A free version with limited options and a fully-featured version for US$5.99 that includes a full equalizer, high- and low-pass filters, and one-touch sharing via Dropbox, email and more. The iXY is now available for $199, and is only compatible with 30-pin devices, so iPhone 5 owners are unfortunately out of luck.
