Recording to impc with external mic

Hi, is it possible to record with an external microphone into the impc rather than the built in iPad mic? I'm using the first impc app as ipads too old to run the impc2

Any help greatly appreciated, Thankyou

  • Hi, you have to get a iOS (device) compatible sound card involved to record with a
    proper Mic (even more if Phantom Power for the Mic is needed). It cost money but
    the overall sound quality on the outputs (Phones/Amp) will also benefit from that. If
    you look around you might choose one which also can power the iOS device while
    being connected. Tip: Lately Apple introduced an adapter (camerakit) which enables
    a USB connection for the iPad and also connects to the standard Apple power lead
    on the same time (great for USB gear which connects to the iPad but eats power).
    Without being involved with any company, go check iConnectivity for iPad sound.

  • Hey BEAR CREAKS,

    Thanks for posting!

    As PSOUND mentioned, you will need a means of recording audio other than the built-in hardware. An iOS compatible audio interface and the Apple Camera Connection Kit should do the trick.

    Thanks for helping out, PSOUND!
