Microphones for Recording

Microphones for Recording
Here the microphones I use for my voice-over recordings and for the audio I use in my Stayf Draws YouTube videos. You will find links to the Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. These are affiliate links. So if you buy something I will get a small percentage of the sale. This will help me to make more reviews like this.

Rode i-XY
I have recorded this bit with the Rode i-XY on my iPhone 5S in the Rode Rec app.
The Rode i-XY or Rode ixy is a recording microphone for your iPhone or iPad. The Rode i-XY comes in a handy protection zip case that you can also lock on to your belt. It has a foam windshield for outdoor recordings. The mic has a 30 pin connection you can shove on your iPhone. Through the Rode recording app you can record sound up to 24-bit/96k. You can make great stereo recordings with it. Like recording acoustic instruments or sound effects outside or inside. Unfortunately this Mic does not work on my iPhone 6s. So I use my iPhone 5s to do all my recordings with. You can then transfer your files in the cloud, like Dropbox, Soundcloud or through FTP.

Rode Smartlav+
The Rode SmartLav+ is a microphone you can use with your smartphone or tablet. It comes in a a handy pouch. The mic has a TRRS connection so you can also record from your laptop, or Macbook Pro. The mic has foam pop shield to minimise wind and vocal plosives like hard b, t, and p sounds. and also a mounting clip for on your jacket or shirt. You can also record everything in the Rode Rec app that is available for Android and iOs. I use this microphone when I am on the go or if I have to record something quick. It also works great with the film app Filmic, but I will do a review about that in another video. The SmartLav+ does not have the greatest sound, but for the small microphone it does a good job.
