After the predecessor of the iXY lightning had made indispensable after the change to iPhone 5S an adapter free solution.

Compared to the first version is noticeable, which is now no extra bracket is necessary to connect the iXY securely with the iPhone. Nevertheless, it is more compact, but this is compensated by the chunky case. In the first version you had to remove the included foam wind / pop protection, now it fits into the pocket of twice as big.

Since the period of possession of both microphones had overlapped, I was able to
The two synonymous sonically compare, if only in simple listening tests:

The stereo field, already excellent in the first iXY, seems to have improved again. The capsules seem to be arranged closer together vertically, which gave me the impression of a more accurate representation of the space. Particularly as a field recorder mounted on the DSLR camera, the video in combination with the stereo recording is very natural and spatially.

The frequency response is also pleasing, in particular, that the microphone monitors up to 20 Hz and no special coloration of the sound image takes place. High and low frequencies are very clean, even at high volumes, eg during concerts.

With the app RødeRec LE available in the appstore, the input level can be changed, managed and shared on common audio platforms or via iTunes.
With the full version of RødeRec, the recordings can be edited extensively (which may be something like that on the phone) and with iZotope-assisted effects such as compression.

It would be desirable if the view of the app could be fixed fixed.
Coupled to the motion sensor, the iPhone must always be slightly inclined so that the view of the app does not turn.

Great mic

AriJ, 21.11.2014
In all, one-time usability, incredible quality construction and sound quality of the preferred game. Mickey is capable of storing the quietest ukulelenäppäilyt and heavy drum workout brilliantly. Softasta can be found in all miss the adjustments. Minus the occasional dotting frequent falling. Overall, however, I have been recovered.
