The Rode SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit comes bundled with everything you need to quickly record two subjects at the same time to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, making it ideal for capturing interviews, podcasts, and vlogs in crisp broadcast quality. It features two Rode smartLav+ omnidirectional lapel microphones—complete with windscreens, clips, and a storage bag—and a Rode SC6-L ultracompact 2x2 Lightning audio interface. All you need to supply is your mobile device and a set of headphones.
Simply connect the SC6-L interface into your Lightning-equipped Apple device, plug both lavalier microphones into the interface, and open the Rode Reporter app (or your preferred audio/video app). For easy monitoring of your input signal or app playback, just hook up headphones to the SC6-L's 3.5mm headphone port.
Rode SmartLav+ Lavalier Condenser Microphone for Smartphones with TRRS Connections
If you're looking for a compact, easy-to-use lapel mic that plugs right into a phone's TRRS jack, the Rode SmartLav+ is the microphone for you. This mic offers a broadcast-quality sound in a tiny form factor, and can record to many phones and devices that offer 3.5mm TRRS connectivity.
No controls are on hand, which streamlines the process: simply clamp the mic to your subject (or yourself), plug the mic into the phone, and start recording. The mic will work with any app that records audio, including the built-in iOS Voice Memo App—but when you pair it with the iOS Rode Reporter APP, you'll have access to a wide array of mixing, editing, and exporting tools. Perfect for electronic field production, run-and-gun news reporting, or simple mobile vlogs, the mic comes with a windshield, a durable clip, and a Kevlar-reinforced cable.

Rode SC6-L Ultracompact 2x2 Lightning Audio Interface for iOS Devices
Swiftly record two-person interviews, podcasts, and vlogs straight to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with the RODE SC6-L ultracompact 2x2 Lightning audio interface and a pair of TRRS-equipped microphones (mics available separately). Pocket-friendly and bus-powered, the SC6-L is perfect for keeping your setup small and simple while maintaining quality and enjoying app-based optimization.
At one end of the SC6-L, you'll find two 3.5mm TRRS jacks to accept signal from microphones such as the Rode smartLav+ lapel mic, Rode VideoMics (in conjunction with TRRS adapters), and third-party microphones with the appropriate TRRS outputs. Between the two TRRS jacks is a 3.5mm headphone output for monitoring the incoming signal to make sure it is clean and free of distortion.
At the other end of the interface, a short cable is terminated with a Lightning connector, which connects directly to your iOS mobile device to facilitate convenient and clear recording at digital resolutions up to 24-bit / 48 kHz, making it a broadcast-quality unit.
Use the SC6-L with the Rode Reporter app to change preamp gain, switch between summed stereo or dual-mono record modes, and turn direct monitoring on or off, all from your Apple mobile device (iOS 11 or later required). Alternatively, you can use the SC6-L with other audio/video apps such as the onboard Camera app, GarageBand, Voice Memos, and more.
