Sennheiser and Apogee Launch The Perfect Microphone For Your IOS Device

Many a person, family, school's and business's have been transformed with the introduction of smartphone and tablets. Where we use to use a PC or Mac to access information, camcorders and DSLR cameras for photos and videos, we now find ourselves pulling out our mobile device to capture those special and important moments in life.

In particular Sennheiser and Apogee want to help make those special video or audio moments better with the introduction of the "CipMic Digital" and the "MKE2 Digital".

Both these microphones have been designed specifically to work with IOS devices, that feature the "Lightning" connector and bypass the internal analogue built-in analog input and mic pre-amp, which are utilised for telephone calls. Instead with the help of Apogee’s award-winning mic pre-amp and A/D conversion circuitry, Sennheisers two new mobile lapel microphones provide maximum gain with minimal noise. The A/D converter provides a resolution of up to 24bit/96kHz.

At the heart of these microphones is Apogee’s MetaRecorder app.

Apogee’s MetaRecorder is the first audio recording app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to offer intuitive multi-take recording, tagging and file organization for any field recording scenario. MetaRecorder features 24 bit/96kHz recording quality plus software control of the mic input level and recording presets.

Apogee's app allows you to apply metadata tags, Favorites, Markers and to your audiofiles while recording in the field, then allow users to share the recorded audio and Final Cut Pro XML files to Dropbox directly from MetaRecorder. When imported into Final Cut Pro on a Mac, the captured metadata greatly simplifies the process of organizing and parsing your media, substantially accelerating your post-production workflow.

Whether video blogger or journalist, for Youtube or Skype: now the sound can finally compete with the video quality. With ClipMic, a mobile video solution has emerged that only a short time ago was only possible for television broadcasts.
