WATCH: How to turn your iPhone into a pro audio recorder
If you ever do any field recording, you know there are generally two options: bring a full audio setup including some mics and a recorder, or go more guerrilla and use a portable video recorder. I use both options, depending on the situation. But for a while now, I’ve wished that someone would come up with a way to turn my iPhone into an audio recorder. We recently heard of just such a thing, and it’s called the iSeries mic from Mic W. Basically it’s a half-decent pro mic that plugs into the mini jack on your iPhone, then you use the app to record your audio. Seems kind of cool, but in most production setups I encounter, we usually need more than 1 mic going — and I just can’t figure out how you can use more than one of these mics at a time. Anyway, still worth checking out in this video from our friends at the Twit Network (go to about the 51 minute mark)…and let us know what you think. Would you ever use this kind of iPhone audio recorder?
