Robin Good's curator insight, January 11, 2013 1:51 AM


If you are a videomaker, you know how important audio is to your final production, and having something better than the built-in camcorder mike is always a good idea. The RØDE iXY is a good recording microphone for any iPhone or iPad that you can use to record separately your audio track, to be rejoined later to your video clip inside yoyr favorite video editing program (iMovie, Moviemaker, Vegas, FinalCut, Premiere, etc.)


The iXY can record with a quality of 24-bit/96k and it has on-board high-fidelity A/D conversion.


"At the heart of the iXY is a matched pair of ½” cardioid condenser capsules, fixed in a perfect 90 degree ‘near-coincident’ alignment.

This results in immersive and true-to-life stereo recordings, captured in incredibly high detail. The iXY is supplied with a foam windshield for outdoor recording as well as a reinforced protective zip case to ensure your iXY is available whenever you need it."


Price: $ 199

But not all the teachers have the necessary skills or time to go about creating tutorials for their students and this is why we should always make sure we have a bunch of ready-made tutorials at our disposal for rainy days."
