ZOOM MICROPHONES - iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
This range of microphones by Zoom have been designed to plug directly into an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch via a Lightning connector and offer premium audio capture without the need to carry additional recording equipment.
Zoom’s Handy Recorder app is available for free from the iTunes App store and offers signal processing inserts such as EQ, reverb, and compression whilst giving a transport section for recording/playback start and visual overview of the audio that is being recorded.
This microphone is an X/Y configuration of condenser capsules, otherwise seen on the Zoom H4n Handy recorder. The angle of each microphone is adjustable from 90 degrees to 120 degrees to capture focused or immersive audio. A large rotary controller allows the user to adjust the microphone gain on input, whilst a three-stage LED bar allows the user to visually ensure the input level is not overloading or inaudible.
A 3.5mm headphone output jack connector enables the user to monitor the audio input but also can be used as a line output for playback or during recording.
A removable spacer allows the user to connect the microphone to the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad when using certain device cases.
