  1. I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these.
    I love my Rode Video Mic Pro but I really want something additional to record ambient stereo audio as well.
    This looks like it could fit the bill quite nicely.

  2. Can someone answer this for me, why would you want this over a zoom h1? the zoom is small, records same formats, has an xy pattern, uses SD cards so just plug and play and costs half the price, and you dont have to bu the iphone! I’m curious at how this is so much better?

  3. I have the same question as Jed. Does this do something (besides look really cool on your iPhone) that the zoom h1 does not?

  4. I have this device and, although it works well, it is very inconsistent in making the Rode Rec app recognize that it is connected. The green light is on so it is communicating, It perhaps needs a firmware upgrade. This happens with both the ipod touch 4th and 5th generation and the iPad 3rdG.
