The new consumer-level multimedia iRig Mic HD microphone is innovative in that it is able to record voices and sounds in very high quality in digital form without any kind of conversion before it actually gets to the computer tablet or smart device. This is significant because the ability to do in order analog to digital conversion on board the microphone itself effectively turns the microphone into a digital signal processing device in its own right. iRig Mic HD has the 24-bit A/D converter, a 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate and a low-noise/high-definition pre-amp. The preamp means the signal is 'good and fat' by the time it hits the software or recording app.

Previously you needed to buy a special audio recorder in order to have this function with the audio signal being recorded directly onto a storage device of some kind such as a microSD card. I’m thinking now of the "Zoom" type recording devices, for example the H1 and Hn4 field recorders. Alternatively you could buy high-end analog microphones for use with programs such as GarageBand ProTools and other onboard computer recording studios. The problem here is that the microphones require some kind of analog-to-digital conversion hardware.This is an extra step which frankly gets in the way of a good recording idea. So this microphone in being able to record high-quality sound digitally right from the get-go puts it in a class of its own. This is probably why Apple sell it as a high profile item alongside other peripherals in the app store and why the exclusive silver car microphone is sold in the app store separate from the black one which you can get from IK multimedia on its own

I’ve been using the iRig Mic HD microphone digital microphone for several days now in a variety of settings and I found that it works just as well as a field recorder microphone recording audio effects the things such as video productions will film productions as it does for multitrack recording on songs or interviews when I’m conducting discussions from my blog. It feels nice to hold its well-made it’s as nice smooth aluminum finish there is an LED light which flashes to let you know the signal input level which is a handy way of the able to tell if you signal is too loud or too soft there is a small file on the mic which lets you adjust the input level and to set it in accordance with the volume settings suitable for the kind of recording you doing it comes complete with a microphone stand holder with the threaded screw fitting for microphone stand as well as a plastic adapter to support wires which end in a micro USB male connector. There are two cables that come with the microphone one of them is the newer Lightening iPhone cable and the other is a standard USB cable the optional third cable is the Apple iPhone 4 type standard non-lightening connector. I recommend the IK multimedia iRig Mic HD microphone. It is a another tool in the toolkit for outdoor and indoor high-quality digital audio recording for laptop tablet and smartphone use.
