p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Best iPhone voice audio recording app/setup for lav mic?


Hi,

I need to record voice audio using a Rode Smartlav lavalier mic connected to an iPhone 5s for later syncing to Final Cut Pro X on video shot with a Panasonic G-X7(no mic input).

I've looked at dozens of apps on the app store and haven't seen one that really fits what I am looking for: one that records uncompressed WAV, has auto level so that audio doesn't clip and has a decent way to monitor mic audio on a pair of headphones.

Anyone used the iRig by IK Multimedia? I'm not sure if I need this for recording audio on an iPhone. Is it to boost/cleanup the incoming audio from a mic?

I want to improve the quality of recorded voice audio for interviews and looking for any tips. Thanks.

I have an iRig. It is a preamp and has a XLR input. It will improve the sound quality because you won't have to rely on the preamp in your phone, which are not high quality. I don't think it will work with the Rode Smart Lav because it needs plug in power which is 10 volts, the iRig supplies phantom power, for professional mics, through the XLR plug which is 48 volts. If you have a XLR lav mic then you would be in business.

As far as an App, Rode makes one for use with the Smart Lav. I have not used it, but I have seen some reviews, and it seems to work well. Here is a link.
