Gear I Like: iRig Mic w/ iRig Recorder
Scenario: You’re in the middle of a major convention. You have to grab some soundbites for your stories, but you don’t have all your sound gear handy and besides, it weighs a ton. What do you do? You take the iRig condenser microphone with you, attach it to your iPhone (or another device) and record using the iRig Recorder free app.
A few minutes later, you have uploaded your files and, voila, your editors love you and wonder how on earth you can get it all done. 🙂 Smiling big right now.
See the iRig Mic here.
Use it with your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Android device. It is great for live vocals, interviews, nat sound recording and many other situations when you need high quality sound. I tried it using the PadCaster as well as my iPhone, but IK Multimedia also has an iKlip stand for your iPad. (Haven’t tried that one, so can’t recommend it, although it looks very interesting!)
Further information on the iRig Recorder app is available here.
The iRig retails for $59.99 and is available in the IK Multimedia store.
