Australian pro-audio manufacturer RØDE Microphones has today announced the iXY with Lightning connector for iPhone 5, 5s and 5c. It is an update to RØDE''s stereo microphone for Apple iPhones that allows high-quality recording at sample rates up to 24-bit/96kHz.
Equipped with the same broadcast audio performance as the original 30-pin microphone, the iXY with Lightning connector features a matched pair of 1/2-inch condenser capsules arranged in a stacked X-Y configuration, with on-board high-fidelity analogue to digital conversion. This ensures accurate stereo recordings.
Interchangeable rubber mounting clamps fit both iPhone 5/5s and 5c, which also provide shock mounting and help to minimize vibration transferring to the microphone capsules. A foam windshield for outdoor recording and protective storage pouch are also included. The RØDEGrip mount is also available for mounting the iXY and iPhone on a camera or microphone stand, and a “deadcat” windshield for high wind conditions will be available soon.
RØDE Rec also recently received an update to increase compatibility and stability on the iOS 7 platform. RØDE Rec and RØDE Rec LE are available now in the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
The RØDE iXY is shipping now.
