Plug the Red i-XY into your iPhone or iPad and turn your Apple device into a microphone. Thanks to the 24 bit / 96kHz stereo recording quality, you can record sound in high quality everywhere. This makes the microphone ideal for field recordings and recordings for which you do not have access to a studio. During recording you read the sound waves from your phone. You can also see the volume. This prevents you from recording the audio signal too loudly. You can see exactly when you have recorded the perfect shot. You use the included wind screen for shooting in windy locations or for shielding breathing noise during an interview.
