Hi does anyone know of a good external mic set-up for recording / listening / broadcasting live bird song / calls via an iPhone 11 pro max to a live audience on zoom?
Yes, Apple sells a lightning to 3.5MM dongle. Many threads about aftermarket dongles not working fully.Just looking at the Sennhesiiser line up and noticed that they seem to have revised their offering for vloggers etc. It would be interesting to know if anyone has tried the MKE400, which seems to be a reasonably sensitive compact shotgun mic. The only problem is that it seems to to use as 3.5mm input socket on the phone. As the iPhone doesn't have a 3.5mm socket, you would need a workaround - I think there are lightning to 3.5mm input conversion options on the market.
Good tip! I am using a Sennheiser ME 66 with K6 power module on iPhone XR; I have splitter for mic and headphone which works--I can record and playback to headphones without plugging or unplugging mic or headphones. Problem is, I cannot hear (monitor) what the mic is recording on the BirdNET app. Any suggestions for me?3.5 mm input to lightning is +/- 10 €, ATENTION, you must first plug in the microphone's jack to the adapter cable and then the lightning into the Iphone, if you do it the other way round, the Iphone will not recognize a microphone
@jon: Regarding the above excerpt quote I daresay that is no wonder. From what I understand about MixPre's operation it needs an "application" (like video conferencing, DAW or a streaming app) on a host computer in order to utilise the USB-C for digital audio transfer function (in and/or out). However, that is my experience (I have a MixPre-3 II) and what a read in the MixPre manual about USB-C streaming usage. But on the your Rode receiver's side there is obviously no applicable "application program" running. What do you think?[...] The only weird thing is that I cannot get the receiver to work with a Sound Devices Mix-Pre II 6, when using the USB C connection - i wonder if it is a power issue. [...]
