About Rode Microphones

The Rode Microphones iXY Stereo Recording Microphone for iPhone/iPad provides an ideal way to record live music, meetings, lectures, reporting, dictation and any other applications that require stereo audio recordings by using a compatible iPhone or iPad. It's also well suited for use as an on-camera external mic. Two half-inch cardioid condenser capsules and onboard A/D conversion ensures highly detailed recordings for all your audio selections.

By downloading the paid Rode Rec app to your device, you can benefit from multiple sampling rates up to 96kHz, equalization effects (compressor/expander, high-pass filter, low pass filter, parametric EQ), non-linear editing, geo and photo tagging and one-touch publishing to SoundCloud, Dropbox, email, FTP and iTunes. The app allows control of the iXY's continuously adjustable input levels for equally accurate recordings in both loud and quiet environments. The free Rode Rec LE app has limited features, but still allows 24-bit/96kHz recordings.
