Røde Microphones iXY-LAustralian manufacturer Røde Microphones has updated its iXY stereo microphone, offering Lightning connector for Apple iPhone 5, 5s and 5c models.

The original iXY was announced in early 2013 as the world’s first microphone for iOS devices, able to record at resolutions up to 24-bit/96kHz. Equipped with the same broadcast audio performance as the original 30-pin microphone, the iXY with Lightning connector features a matched pair of 0.5-inch condenser capsules arranged in a stacked X-Y configuration, with onboard analogue-to-digital conversion.

Interchangeable rubber mounting clamps are supplied to suit both iPhone 5/5s and 5c, which also provide shock mounting and minimise vibration to the capsules. A foam windshield for outdoor recording and protective storage pouch are also included. The RødeGrip mount is optionally available for mounting the iXY and iPhone on a camera or microphone stand, and a Deadcat windshield for high wind conditions will be available shortly.

‘Being able to record at this quality with a device that sits in your pocket has been a game changer not only for audio professionals, but for enthusiasts alike,’ says Røde Global Sales & Marketing Director, Damien Wilson. ‘We saw this first-hand with so numerous entrants to our My Røde Reel short film competition choosing to use the iXY for their amazing short films’.

Røde’s field recording app for iOS devices, Røde Rec also recently received an update to increase compatibility and stability on the iOS 7 platform. Røde Rec and Røde Rec LE are available now in the App store for iPhone and iPad.

The Røde iXY is shipping now.
