The iRig Mic Field is an ultra compact stereo microphone that transforms your iOS device into the ultimate audio/video capture equipment for when out on locations. Get high quality stereo recordings simly by recording directly on your iOS device through the high speed lightning connector instead of buying an expensive and cumbersome dedicated device.
The iRig Mic Field can be used for both audio capture and as part of your complete video rig thanks to an innovative rotatable design that allows you to get perfect mic placement whether your iOS device is in landscape or portrait mode. So whether you're recording a lecture, creating a video of your friend's band or out getting foley sounds for a sound design project, you'll be well placed to get that perfect take in any situation.
Quality Packed Small
The iRig Mic Field is compact and easily slips in your pocket, yet inside the enclosure you'll find high quality components including a 24-bit audiophile grade A/D converter, a 44.1/48KHz sampling rate, a 115 dB maximum SPL rating and a low-noise HD pre-amp that ensures you get great sound every time. The result is a mic that's as good as a studio mic yet half the price, and can be with you wherever you go.
The mic is ready to use right out the box. Plug it in through the lightning connector and open up your favourite app. If you're just starting, you can download IK's free iRig Recorder app. The mic is also compatible with all Core iOS audio and video apps including voice memo & Camera, and Apple's Garageband and iMovie as well as many others.
Here's what IK say about the iRig Mic Field
High-quality stereo field recording
When you’re on the move and want to record audio and video, you never know when you’ll need high-quality stereo sound. That’s where iRig Mic Field comes in; it’s been designed to deliver the best stereo image and sound quality no matter your needs. It connects directly to the Lightning input of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And its two condenser capsules, 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter (with 44.1/48kHz sample rate), 115 dB maximum SPL rating and built in low-noise, high-definition preamp give you the tools you need to capture pristine stereo sound in any situation.
90 degrees of flexibility
When recording in the field, flexibility is key. iRig Mic Field gives you more flexibility than any other mobile field microphone thanks to its conveniently rotatable patent-pending design, which lets you adjust it 90 degrees and lock it in one of two positions for the best stereo image in both landscape and portrait mode. This means you can make higher quality recordings than with the built-in mono microphone on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and also comparable mobile microphones that only produce a true stereo sound when held in portrait mode. All of this while all the on-board controls remains easily accessible and properly positioned for maximum comfort.
Video production in your pocket
iRig Mic Field has also been designed with mobile video in mind. It lets you record video with crystal-clear audio to be shared on all your favorite video sites and services: Youtube, Facebook, Vine and more. It’s never been easier to shoot a video and share it with your friends, followers and fans. Now musicians, videographers, journalists, podcasters, casual users and more can get high-quality sound while on the go without sacrificing mobility or audio fidelity.
Big things come in small packages
Combine its effortless portability stereo recording capabilities, 24-bit digital audio converter, plug-and-play app compatibility, built-in preamp, easy monitoring via LED and headphone out, input gain control and sleek design, and iRig Mic Field stands out as the smallest and most full-featured portable field microphone for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. And best of all, it gives you all this at a low price that everyone can afford.
