Cheapest way to record on a Samsung phone with external mics
« on: February 11, 2022, 09:31:20 PM »
i just realized that if you want to stealth in a big arena chances are you are not going to get a recorder in anymore. I know people are recording on their phones. Is there a free/cheap app and can i just put a stereo 1/8" into the phone? thanks in advance

Smartphones normally don't have stereo-in capability through their TRRS connection (only stereo-out). You'll need to feed your phone with a digital stereo signal through the usb-c plug like a Shure MV88+ or an audio interface like RØDE AI-Micro.

iPhone 8 -> Shure MV88 or Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset

I wouldn't use the AI-Micro as it is currently. The Shure Motiv app doesn't recognize the stereo input and the Rode reporter app has no recording lock, nor will it record if your phone goes into sleep mode.

If they fixed those two issues, it would be perfect as it uses very little power and would pass any security check.

I saw a similar post somewhere else today...And people replied with the Shure MOTIV MV88+.  I can't speak a thing about it, but people seem to like it.

I have had zero issues "getting in" with mics/recorder/battery box. These days venues are occupied with checking vaccine status and keeping the line moving ... if anything it's been easier.

That’s a very interesting perspective, moondust. I haven’t been to a big show since 2019. I like the idea of security actually being concerned with something other than me having a microphone. Hope  it lasts.

I used the Shure MV88 mic a few years back at the Gorge for Def Leppard and Journey.  Recordings came out great I think.  Definitely different sound from band to band but that could be who was behind the board. 

I’m terrible at tracking concerts in software and uploading.  If anyone wants to track either bands or both and can tell me how to send the files I’ll send them. 
A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

They're pretty hard to come by these days.
