A new trick for a new iOS mic!

June 13, 2013

I'm going to be publishing a review of the iXY stereo mic for iOS devices from RØDE pretty soon, but I wanted to share a neat trick I discovered in the course of doing the review. As many readers know, I am a big fan of CableJive, whose products basically exist to make things that don't go together, go together. One of my favorite CableJive gizmos is the dockXtender, which lets you separate an iOS device and a gizmo that plugs into it with a multipin cable.

I found, in the course of my tests with the iXY, that it's a natural for the dockXtender! If you can't put your iPad or iPhone somewhere convenient with the mic attached, you can separate them by up to six feet with no loss of sound quality or reliable performance. Check out the photos, and watch for the review in an upcoming issue of RECORDING! (Oh, that app on the iPad is RØDE Rec, the recording app that's optimized for use with the iXY mic. I'll be talking about that, too.)
