Smartphone/iphone portable video/microphone
What is everyone using to record themselves at home?
Built in mics produce some pretty crappy sound.
Im quite interested in the Cominca Smartphone Video Kit. Seems way simpler than trying to hook all sorts of stuff up to my desktop.
I’ll need to record on my phone since I use my iPad Pro for reading music.
I’ve also contemplated getting an all in one video recorder.
Curious to see responses!
Jerry, an initial question/observation is apparently missing from your thread.
It was, but now it has been edited in. There have been at least 5000 posts made since COVID-19 on microphones and whatnot
Hi Jerry! If you have mics, you could use the irig duo pro on battery or ac adapter which has phantom power, which has 2 inputs for sterek recording, route that on a 3.5mm minijack output to a monitor/headphones, and a 3.5mm minijack 3 ring input (not 2, as the 3rd ring on the jack is a mic input signal) into a phone or recorder, or laptop mic 3.5mm input.
The Cominca claims to have a "professional" microphone, so you should be all set with that.
Thomas, thanks for the recommendation for the iRig pro Duo I/O (The current version). Lately I’ve been trying hard to find a way to make good quality recordings with my iPhone, and I’ve been leaning towards an iRig pro I/O, or pro Duo I/O, to use with the dpa 4099 microphone that I already have. dpa 4099’s are made to be mounted on the instrument and are optimized for close proximity, but they work very well at greater distances too. A mic stand mount is available, which I also already have. It’s just starting to seem like a good way to go (since I already have the dpa 4099). GarageBand appears to be a flexible and usable recording app, and I already have that too. Altogether it seems like an iRig pro Duo I/O will be the ideal interface to tie everything I already have together into a good recording system.
My pleasure Mark, I have a stereo pair of dpa 4060 omni micro lavs that I can use for close miking, interview work, or getting sound of the room. Its a little more flexible use than the 4099 which are very nice also, those 4099 have a lower noise floor! I need very natural and natural microphones to capture accurately true sounds of instruments in my shop, as well as recording projects and other digital media projects.
