Rode SmartLav+ iOS Lavalier Mic
The SmartLav+ is an omnidirectional condenser microphone that makes recording into a smartphone easy. All you need to do is mount the microphone on a lapel, then connect it to a smartphone or tablet's headset jack, and record via the R DE Rec app for iOS - or any other audio app you choose. Designed for use in a wide range of film, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever professional quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment, the smartLav does not fall short on sonic performance. It picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation, while a windshield minimises wind noise and vocal plosives. A durable mounting clip with built-in cable management makes set-up even more straightforward.
The smartLav is compatible with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, though it has been designed to pair perfectly with the R DE Rec app for Apple iOS devices. R DE Rec turns the user's iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation presets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox direct from the app. Combine the user-friendly app and the simple clip-on mic, and you have a straightforward, swift recording solution that will travel with you anywhere.
