RODE iXY Recording Microphone for Apple iPhone 4/4S, iPad 1st/2nd/3rd Gen
The RODE iXY is the ultimate recording microphone for iPhone® or iPad®. Up to 24-bit/96k recording (using RODE Rec app) and on-board high-fidelity A/D conversion. The 30-pin version supports the iPhone® 4S, iPhone® 4, iPad® (3rd generation) and iPad® 2.
At the heart of the iXY is a matched pair of ½” cardioid condenser capsules, fixed in a perfect 90 degree ‘near-coincident’ alignment. This results in immersive and true-to-life stereo recordings, captured in incredibly high detail.
The iXY is supplied with a foam windshield for outdoor recording as well as a reinforced protective zip case to ensure your iXY is available whenever you need it.
The XY stereo pattern of the iXY works a lot like your ears. To find the best position for your iXY when recording just move your head around until you find the ‘sweet spot’ and position the iXY there.
Be sure to monitor the recording level. RØDE Rec provides a variable input level and headphone monitoring to ensure you’re always aware of what you’re recording.
Always keep the iXY at hand. Its protective pouch can be easily attached to a bag zipper or your belt, so there’s no excuse for being caught out.
Remember to always use the provided windshield when recording outdoors. Even if there’s no wind evident it’s better to be safe than sorry. The RØDE DeadKitten furry windshield is available as an optional accessory for added environmental protection.
The RØDE iXY Stereo Recording Microphone for iPhone/iPad provides an ideal way to record live music, meetings, lectures, reporting, dictation and any other applications that require stereo audio recordings by using a compatible iPhone or iPad. It's also well suited for use as an on-camera external mic. Two half-inch cardioid condenser capsules and onboard A/D conversion ensures highly detailed recordings for all your audio selections.
By downloading the paid RØDE Rec app to your device, you can benefit from multiple sampling rates up to 96kHz, equalization effects (compressor/expander, high-pass filter, low pass filter, parametric EQ), non-linear editing, geo and photo tagging, and one-touch publishing to SoundCloud, Dropbox, email, FTP and iTunes. The app allows control of the iXY's continuously adjustable input levels for equally accurate recordings in both loud and quiet environments. The free RØDE Rec LE app has limited features, but still allows 24-bit/96kHz recordings.
