CES: RODE announces stereo mic for iOS devices


At this week's Consumer Electronics Show, RODE Microphones (www.rodemic.com) announced the iXY, a stereo microphone for iPhone and iPad and iPod touch with 30-pin connector that allows recording at sampling rates up to 24-bit/96kHz.

At the heart of the iXY is a matched pair of half-inch cardioid condenser capsules, fixed in a 90 degree "near-coincident" alignment. The iXY uses its own high-fidelity analog to digital conversion ensuring all recordings are rich, smooth and accurate, according to Peter Freedman, RODE's founder and president.

The iXY’s small form factor and incredibly detailed performance makes it the perfect microphone for recording live music, meetings, lectures, reporting, dictation, sound design, and also is ideal for use on-camera as a dual-system recorder for DSLR, he adds. A foam windshield is provided for outdoor recordings, as well as a zip pocket to ensure the mic is always around when you need it.

The RØDE Rec App is available from the App store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore. The app provides features such as multiple sampling rates up to 96kHz, equalization effects (compressor/expander, high-pass filter, low pass filter, parametric EQ), non-linear editing, geo and photo tagging, and one touch publishing to SoundCloud, Dropbox, email, FTP and iTunes. RØDE has also announced a feature-limited free version of the app, simply titled RØDE Rec LE.

The RØDE iXY is shipping this month, though pricing hasn't been announced. For more info go to www.ixymic.com .
