Been using his with the røde app @ 2496

Pretty cool stuff. Not sure what I would do if the levels were too hot, as it doesn't seem to let me change levels in the dpa app when I am recording. Also the meters in the dpa app are frozen when recording using the røde app, so it would be tough to adjust, anyway...

Has anyone else gotten a quick glitch when recording? I have gotten one each time I have used the setup. Don't know if my iPod is choking, if storage is scattered (no defraying an iPod), if I f'd it up checking things,  or what... barely noticeable, and a cross fade/pencil tool gets rid of it, but still...

Anyway, here is a sample result; would love to know what you folks think...

I have not noticed any glitches (with iPhone 6s), but I'll watch for them.

What battery life do you get with the iPod (and which model are you using)?

Battery life is terrific. Dim brightness, auto lock after 30 seconds and airplane mode...

Most recent ipod, 32 gig, latest iOS

I'm holding out for the 4-channel version.

Just posted this weekend on the DPA website, an excerpt from a Danish language review (I would love a translation of the full article) which notes:

"In this context, it is interesting that you can feed the d:viceTM a sync signal to one of the Microdot inputs and thereby use several d:viceTM units simultaneously and in perfect sync."  I would guess this requires two iPhones as well, but am waiting to hear from DPA on how this syncing would be done.

Hmmm, interesting, thanks.

Reply from DPA, this doesn't look useful for me for four channel, unless with FOUR d:vices and phones:


"... we are using one of the audio inputs to feed the SMPTE timecode into the recording while leaving the other track free for a microphone input.
Tentacle has a small software (free) which erases the timecode track and leaves you with the file type you prefer and with the timecode embedded into the file.
It takes only a few seconds in the post situation to accomplish this.
Please visit the homepage of this timecode generator company:
https://www.tentaclesync.com/

The cable to be used for this purpose needs to be set up correctly and I can’t recommend to experience with other timecode generator brands without consulting the schematics of such types as we are sending out a DC (5V) on the MicroDot connectors.
Also we are using a “sense” mechanism to determine whether one or two inputs are active.

The set-up is very nice when you are doing work with multicam (on iOS) or mixed environment camera set-ups as the Tentacle units can be jam synced to other kind of gear (like an ENG camera, DSLR or whatever).


Other means of multicam recordings/productions can be made “on the fly” with for example the Filmic pro App and their corresponding Filmic Remote, where you can control several iOS units from a “master” iOS unit or even an Apple watch.
You can then make sure you are ending up with fx 3 files that have been started/stopped at the same time and with the same metadata.

For sound purposes only the Apogee App handles a similar recording."

On the other hand, I ran a quick and unexpected positive test of an Android bitbucket.  I just upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 with Android 7, and used the app which Chrysler suggested to me above, USB Audio Recorder Pro, which has just been upgraded to support Android 7.  A quick test showed recording at 24/96 successful, with all the high frequencies present in an iZotope scan.  So maybe the new Sony phone will work with the MMA-A?

Finally got to test my d:vice/iPhone with an orchestral group this weekend.  I am very happy with the result.  My impression is that it is cleaner than my earlier setups, DPA4060 > MMA6000 > D50 or DPA4060 > Church "Ugly" > M10.   Here is a link to a sample, comments welcome:

Thanks for the sample Jeff, sounds very right to my ears.
