Does anyone use Iphone or Ipd to record shows
« on: January 25, 2018, 09:57:57 AM »
Just curious if this is a good idea? I am sure there are drawbacks, such as Iphone 8 not having the headphone jack.
Thanks

I've never posted here, so I plead ignorance on that. I see the advantage of using the iphone and Ipod in some venues with security concerns, but, I also see this as a possible secondary recording device. I've heard issues that Apple may only record in mono. Other issues might be old information, such as the overall sound quality.

The search function is your friend...it's the button right between HELP and PROFILE in the header bar. I would suggest narrowing your search by choosing specific topics to search in.

There have been numerous threads here about using an iPhone as a recorder

Some people have had success using the DPA d:Vice to record using an iPhone.  It's not cheap, but seems to be working well from the little I've read.  Here's the thread about it: http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=181868.0

Thanks,
I have a pretty basic setup right now with Church audio mics and tascam DR-05.
Without investing a lot  in equipment, does it make sense to use the iphone instead of the DR05?

I have searched through threads and not really hear a lot of opinions. There's posts about the gear,but, not a lot of comments on the actual recordings.
I do look at the bit torrent sites and do not notice recordings with the ios.
Thanks

Check the cost of the DPA 4060 > d:vice at B&H and you'll see why it's not being used as much.  It's VERY expensive (US$1435 for a matched pair of mics and a d:vice).  There are people using them around here and some shows have ended up on DIME. 

You can't use the iPhone (at least in a clean, true 24-bit manner) without the d:vice so since you're NOT wanting to invest a lot in equipment, it's best not to consider this.  It's an expensive outlay but a pretty simple and easy to use setup.

It can be done cheaply and successfully, but the best method I've found is using the now discontinued Tascam iXj2.

Here's an example of a comparison I did.

Personally, I'd get a battery box or preamp (if you don't already have one) to run between the mics and the DR05 before I'd try to record using a phone.  That will be much less expensive and possibly more reliable.

But, IIRC, it's discontinued, uses the old iPhone port, and is 16/44 only.

You should be able to use a sonicport as an alternative to the D:vice or tascam (for 24/48)

microphones > battery box > 1/8 out > sonicport > iphone.

Thanks everyone, it seems to sound like it's not a great idea.
I'll probably use my DR05, but, I thought the iphone would be good for a second source recording.

The link on the articles reviews some mics, but, I wonder about the recording quality, whether the mics can handle the volume, etc.

I think somebody on here has used the Shure MV88, and got a good recording from it at a Who show.

I have both a Zoom IQ5 and a IQ7. I used them fro hand streaming via mixlr and they are pretty good. Using a lightning connected microphone to record to an iphone is certainly a possibility. Although overall audio quality would not rival better microphones etc, the ability to get in better locations sound wise is a big advantage.
