Hi Griff
Your side is great.
I wonder if you can figure out how to hack i-Rig pre with head-phons

ItsMirannnda says:

Awesome video! 

Jacob Colegrove says:

That worked so good. I Actually already had a bunch of RCA and phone
adapters, so to connect my ATR6550 I didn’t have to solder anything. 

Storm Buckingham says:

Do the apps work on iOS 7, please??

Oscar Monge says:

Nice video, the adapter works perfectly with dynamic mics, but what would I
need to make it work with a condenser microphone?

Gabriel Soares says:

I am confused as to the cables schemes. For the XLR plug, the covered wire
goes to pin number 2 and ground goes to pins 1 and 3, right? Meanwhile the
resistor connects to pin 2 and 3? It’s correct?

For the P2 connector, the covered wires (left and right) are welded in the
same middle pin, while their respective shields go to bottom pin?

Thank you!

pikhty says:

do i have to get a specific tripod to use the iPhone or will the mount work
with any tripod?

Nick Thomas says:

How could you connect a blue yeti mic to your iPhone? Or is it not
possible. Because I’m trying to record songs on my iPhone through my blue

Hello, first of all, great YT channel!! and I have this problem with my
mic, it’s an electret condenser shotgun mic, I made the adapter but when
recording I get pulses and interferes with the audio recorded, any idea why
this happens?

Ramesh Borad says:

Hay can we plug it in Point and shoot cameras??

Aaron Soderholm says:

Or you can use a direct box and a 1/4″ > 1/8″ cable (dirt cheap),
especially if you’re a guitar player. For those who don’t know, a direct
box’s sole purpose is to adapt a guitar’s (or other instrument’s) 1/4″ jack
to XLR.

Robert Ridpath says:

Dude, great video with some great tips. I loved how you got some “behind
the scenes” shots of you using the iphone in action. For me making the
cables was a bit technical. I’m looking forward to watching more. Keep up
the great work

I noticed that you put the resistor on pin 2&3. I another video had placed
it inline with the mic line. What’s the difference and which is better?

Wasn’t paid for any of the product mentions. I simply own the Glif and
tiltpod, and think they’re inexpensive and nicely designed.
