I'd like to pick up either the Mikey Digital or Tascam IM2 that are coming out.
Wonder how they will compare sound wise on my iPhone 4?
Not sure if they're even in stores yet.

hot damn! outboard solutions for the iphone 4 and ipad!

i've held on to my 3GS because the blue mikey2 works with it (giving me a useful freq. analyzer and dB meter with studio six digital's apps, and a nice field recorder with the FiRe app).

they eliminated the audio-ins entirely on the 4, leaving the mikey obsolete.

now i want an iphone 4 again!

Ha, go get 'em Walter!

It's funny because even though I have a decent home studio setup, I find myself just using the iPhone to capture goofy videos and simple recordings much more. I've looked into decent mics for them since the beginning, hopefully now we'll have a few choices.

the mikey G2 works a lot better with the 3GS, as the original mikey totally clips out at band volumes.

Yeah, i've noticed that problem with my "original" mikey. Recording band practice with it is impossible. The swivel on mine is also shot--it's got 2 positions, flat or right angle. :rotflmao

Looks like i'll check into the G2! I appreciate the tip/heads-up!


cheers,
wade
