R�DE Introduces iXY Mic for iPhone
Jul 14, 2014 3:35 PM
Australian pro-audio manufacturer R�DE Microphones has today announced the iXY with Lightning connector for iPhone 5, 5s and 5c. It is an update to R�DE''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 R�DEGrip 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.
R�DE Rec also recently received an update to increase compatibility and stability on the iOS 7 platform. R�DE Rec and R�DE Rec LE are available now in the App Store for iPhone and iPad.
The R�DE iXY is shipping now.
