While there are many apps that enable recording using an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, Tascam's iM2 Stereo Microphone for Apple iOS Products provides you with an external pair of condenser microphones that plug into the dock connector of your chosen device. The iM2 has several recording features that make it easy to use and allow for superb audio recordings -- while its compact size means it can tag along pretty much anywhere you go.

For the best sound placement, the microphones can be adjusted 180 degrees from front to back. The uni-directional elements are arranged in an AB pattern for detailed stereo imaging while capturing the ambiance of the recording room. The iM2 has its own microphone pre-amp and analog to digital converter for low noise and exceptional sound quality. The unit can handle up to 125 dB sound levels for capturing varied noise levels without distorting the sound. The iM2 also has a stereo limiter to subdue loud bursts of sound.

A knob on the side adjusts the microphone level for quick adjustments. While it's powered by your device, it has a USB input so that you can charge your device through a computer or power adapter to avoid cutting off extended recordings due to a drained battery. Whether you're recording live audio, writing songs using the help of an app, recording during rehearsals or gathering sound effects for productions or remixes, the iM2 is both useful and affordable.

question

Can this microphone be used for live broadcasts/phone calls, or will it only work with a recording app. Can we call the radio station and do a live interview using the mic and an iphone instead of the old flip jacks?
Asked by: Anonymous
This mic is designed to operate correctly during the recording mode only and with a compatible recording app. You may use a plug-in lavalier or shotgun connected into headphone mic jack as a substitute for the device's embedded mic for phone calls:The Rode smartLav is a lavalier microphone for your Apple or Android mobile device that is designed to deliver high quality audio recording. The smartLav clips on to your shirt or lapel, and the sensitive, omni-directional condenser capsule captures the sound equally from all sides of the microphone. B&H # ROSMARTLAV.To monitor while speaking you can use this adapter:The RDE SC6 Dual TRRS Input and Headphone Output for Smartphones is an input/output breakout box for smartphones and tablets. It has two TRRS inputs and one stereo headphone output. It connects to any TRRS device, such as your smartphone, and allows you to use one or two smartLav microphones while providing a headphone jack for monitoring and playback. Use it to monitor audio from the smartLav and input two smartLavs into the mono channel in interview or dual-dialog applications. B&H # ROSC6
