RØDE Microphones has added TRRS device compatibility for Lavalier, PinMic and HS1 Headset microphones with the release of the MiCon-11 adaptor cable.
This now means that users of these microphones are able to take advantage of the RØDE Rec app on Apple iOS devices, recording high-quality audio direct to their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. With a large-scale update of the app to be released later this month, this functionality will be further enhanced.
“The MiCon system was born out of frustration from working with other manufacturers’ wireless systems,” said Damien Wilson, RØDE’s global marketing and sales director. “With MiCon the idea is to allow anyone that invests in our microphones a versatile suite of connectivity options, so if you upgrade your wireless system or want to connect it to another device you don’t have to buy a completely new mic.”
“Today’s release of the MiCon-11 really highlights the benefits of this system,” he continued. “Since the release of the smartLav in January we’ve been overwhelmed by worldwide demand, proving that this convergent technology is exactly what today’s consumers and professionals alike are looking for. Now with the MiCon-11 we can easily enable users of our broadcast-quality compact wearable microphones to take advantage of the many benefits of recording direct to their iOS device with the RØDE Rec app.”
The 1.2m/4ft cable adaptor also includes a MiCon male-to-male interface to allow it to be used as an extension for other MiCon cables from RØDE.
With this announcement RØDE now offers eleven different interface options for customers to connect their microphones, including wireless systems from seven different manufacturers.
