On an absolutely unremarkable weather day I sat down in my studio with my thousands of dollars worth of professional broadcast equipment. On this particular day I was a guest and not a host and when the host show out of a major station in Los Angeles tried repeatedly to connect with me for an interview we had one of those glitches that make you cringe... no matter the trouble shooting the two studios were not going to talk to each other.
The host on the other end was frustrated and discussed aborting the interview which I did not want to happen and when I suggested they call my cell phone the reaction was even worse (we all know the clarity of cell phone interviews and avoid them like the plague).  They agreed to give it a try and I quickly plugged in the iRig Mic Studio  that had just been delivered the week before... In the less than :60 seconds it took them to dial me I had the mic and a head set plugged into my iPhone and proceeded to give a 15 minute interview (originally scheduled for 5 minutes). The engineer and host would have killed the interview if not pleased with the sound! This to me was passing the electric kool aid acid test..... using a digital mic on a cell phone and not making a board op go ballistic.
 
To review the iRig Mic Studio I could mimic all the specs on the info page at iRig...not necessary you can read all of this. As a broadcaster I am more interested in how the mic performs in the field and in the studio.
The sound was as close to broadcast quality as one can get using a cell phone and not using a codec link. My next experiment will be using LUCI (Live or Lite) which is an app that will allow me to connect my cell,computer or tablet back to a BRIC unit in the studio. I can only imagine the sound will be even better with that kind of a handshake.
 
What does this mean for me? Confident of the sound quality I can take this iRigMic Studio with me where ever I go and grab interviews on the fly. I can plug it into my phone and record to the app they provide or use my LUCI to connect live to the studio or my Hindenburg audio  recording ap  (love it) if I am recording only.
For a simple set up (as  opposed to  a full remote broadcasting set up with mixers and mics and access or bric) I can take this well designed little mic and a headset and my iPhone and start recording!
 
I have already recommended this mic to folks who were doing podcasting and wanted a good quality mic. The connector on the iRig works with most smart phones and tablets and if you have an older iPhone it works as well...you just need the adaptor.
 
This iRig Mic Studio  will be my backpack buddy wherever I go and also a backup for in studio if  the board has a connection issue!  More information can be found through IK Multimedia.
