Australian pro-audio manufacturer R�DE Microphones announced the smartLav+, a broadcast-grade update to the popular smartLav lavalier microphone that connects to Apple and Android mobile devices.

R�DE increased the audio quality of the new smartLav+ by updating the microphone capsule to improve sensitivity and lower self-noise. The smartLav+ also adds a Kevlar reinforced cable to ensure that the user cannot stretch or snap the microphone under normal usage conditions. A foam windshield and clip with integrated cable management is also supplied, along with a storage pouch that is small enough to slide into any camera bag or audio kit.

For iOS platforms R�DE offers the R�DE Rec field recording app, which allows the user to perform a complete range of professional recording functions including one-touch export to Dropbox and SoundCloud.

R�DE''s SC3 adaptor allows the TRRS jack of the smartLav+ to be adapted to suit standard TRS devices, such as a DSLR camera or personal recorder like the Zoom H1.

The smartlav+ replaces the smartLav, and is shipping now for US$79. Visit www.smartlav.com for further information.
