Conclusion Using the Iphone in conjunction with the iXY has so many benefits. Professional field recorders can get costly and is annoyingly bulky.
iXY is a fantastic stereo mic, has a great Analogue/Digital converter and is extremely portable when used with the Iphone. Sampling at 96k with a 24 bit is more than sufficient to say the least! Thank you RØDE for making an app that bypasses the IOS 6 sampling rate and bit depth limitation. The iXY only sells for $199. We here at Production Trends are excited to receive a couple iXY microphones shortly!
