Christmas Presents for the Mobile Musician: Day 5


I’m quite keen to try out one of these for myself. I wonder if anyone will pop one in my Christmas stocking?

There’s not too many iPhone mics available, and Blue isn’t too expensive compared to the others.

  1. trouble is it blocks the headphone socket; i recently got monster isonitalk for 20 euros on ebay; it works great plus can now output sounds from RJDJ into my mixer 🙂

  2. i had one of these for a few days, it was a decent mic for recording voice. i took it to a music fest and recorded a bunch of bands and the mic couldn't handle the loud levels without distorting (even when it wasn't clipping). i tried a lot to get it to work (all kinds of settings on fire). i ended up googling it and eventually i found a bunch of people complaining about the same thing.

    i ended up returning it because it was advertised as being able to record loud sources like concerts, and i need something to do that. just thought i would comment on here and let people know, cause it isn't many info/reviews for the mikey or iphone mics in general really.

  3. I like Mikey. I use it to record scratch vocals on the go–even while commuting!

    Here I've assembled some (unedited) vocal tracks that I made with harmonic dog's MultiTrack program into an impromptu a capella version of a christmas pop song I'm working on.

    My voice isn't great, but it will give you some sense of the quality of the recording.

  4. I have recorded several shows – fuck buttons, pixies, king Kahn..loud shows, I used iprorecorder and there is some setting issues there with markers but the sound is really good, no clips so far.
