iPhone Recording Studio For Podcasting, Vocals

Oct 17th, 2010 | By | Category: iPhone, iPods & Portable Media Players, Podcasting Hardware

Here’s an example of an iPhone recording studio that packs a lot of power.

This photo, via Ashley Elsdon at Palm Sounds, captures his vocal recording setup.

Here are the main elements of this portable iPhone recording studio:

  • Standard tripod to hold the iPhone at the right height and position;
  • An iPhone tripod adapter
  • Headphones with a minijack plug;
  • A Blue Mikey microphone; and
  • Multitrack DAW, an iPhone recording app.

A set up like this is a relatively inexpensive and fairly powerful mobile recording option, for iPhone owners that want to record vocals instruments or audio podcasts. The Blue Mikey is available for $79 online and iPhone tripod adapters are available for around $20. Multitrack DAW sells for $9.99 in the App Store. Other iOS recording apps are available, too.

Beyond that, there’s a good chance that you’ve got the tripod and headphones. Better quality, over the ear headphones and some soundproofing would kick this setup up a notch, too.
