Rødes new SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit
« on: August 02, 2018, 01:35:09 PM »
The new Røde Interview Kit for iOS with two 3.5mm mic input, headphone out and lightning connector might not have the best dynamic range but for its size it might be a pretty ok stealthy setup.

I wonder if one could use a battery box or small pre with an adapter cable that breaks out to two minis, and then plug each of those into this Rode thingy?

Details are sparse but it says you can adjust gain on the input at least.

Hopefully there will be some modding opportunities for the input stage.

odd that its lightning/digi in but only 69 db signal to noise ratio? thats quite a bit lower than most decent mics agreed that its probably a crappy gain stage but maybe it can be bypassed altogether

interesting these rode smartlav mics are trrs - they are obviously 3 wire... as is a schoeps CMR which only needs 1mA@ 5V.... this might be able to power them.. though it looks like the smartlav mics themselves only get 2.7V when plugged into an  apple analog jack, and probably the same from the SC6-L

according to this page (not sure how old it is or what model iphone it references), the iphone trrs puts out 1.5V (pretty standard for plug in power mics, no?

regardless it seems this is a good stereo line in option if we can get over the noise floor

Wow that looks very promising especially now with the 2 channel - stereo option.

Here is a short video with more info https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfn01O6zV5g

Yes indeed! Not every taper has an unlimited budget.

Also if this kit works fine it may help new tapers with only an Iphone to get into recording concerts we all wanna hear ;)

see ambeo thread, if you already have an iphone its a $200 investment and you get noise cancelling headphones you can use when not taping

So still interested to hear if someone has got this set and recorded any shows with this SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit ?

Also any ideas if would it be possible to connect SP-SPSB-6 microphones to this SC6-L or what kind of connector would it need to connect 3,5mm stereo to this SC6-L?
