With the growing popularity of using iPads and iPhones to record video, more and more people are running into the same problem- how to get good sound. While the camera is great and the built-in mic is probably fine for phone calls and FaceTime, videographers demand more professional options. In this video, Rob from B&H takes us through some third-party audio solutions to consider, from entry-level consumer up to ENG-grade professional gear. The video explores both wireless systems like the Azden WMS-PRO+I and Sennheiser EW 100 G3 as well as hard-wire options including the Polsen MO-PL1 and Rode VideoMic GO. Since the mic input on the iPad and iPhone wasn't designed for pro audio gear, the video also explores some adapters and mounts to consider when rigging up your mic, and delves into the issues of audio monitoring. Do you monitor through the iPad/iPhone and live with delay or monitor through your audio equipment—assuming it has a headphone out—and risk not knowing what levels are being recorded?

In this video, Greg Johnson demonstrates the Korg Monologue, a monophonic all-analog synthesizer with a fully programmable single-voice architecture and 100 fully editable presets, well suited for musicians and analog enthusiasts. Building upon the success of the Minilogue Polyphonic Synthesizer, Korg reworked the knob-per-function layout, voicing, and sound-sculpting abilities to create a distinctive-sounding instrument for all types of musicians and sound designers. The synth offers two VCOs and a redesigned filter with powerful low-end punch, and a drive circuit has been added to apply aggressive overtones and distortion, ideal for huge bass sounds and sharp lead tones.

In broadcasting, it seems there is always a debate as to what kind of microphone is best to use—dynamic or condenser. Both have a list of pros and cons for any given broadcast application, and with the newly announced BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone, it appears Audio-Technica is looking to combine the best of both worlds into a dynamic package. The mic sports a large (for a dynamic mic) 37.5mm diaphragm that provides some condenser-like articulation without betraying the low-end oomph of a dynamic. If you do need to tame that low end because of a rumbling room or extra-boomy voice, the mic does have a selectable high-pass filter. Also featured in the video is a look at the new AT2020USBi, a refresh to their popular USB mic that sees no changes to the capsule or sound capture quality, but an increase of its maximum sampling rate to 24-bit/96 kHz and the inclusion of both USB and Lightning connectors for hooking directly up to your iOS devices.

Azden is showcasing some new wares at this year’s NAB convention, aimed directly at on-site recording. The SGM-250 shotgun mic employs a metal-alloy body with a newly designed microphone element aimed at doing what you want a good shotgun mic to do: provide a wide frequency response with low noise and high SPL handling, all while rejecting side image, all while operating on either phantom power or a single battery. The company has also unveiled an update to its popular FMX-42 with the FMX-42u, which now features analog-to-digital conversion for providing backups.
