Listen to a demonstration of the Shure MV88+ microphone connected to an iPhone. This is a short recording but it should give you enough to go on if you want to compare the sound with other alternatives on the market. I choose this microphone for it’s portability and versatility. The sound was obviously incredibly important to me and stereo recording was something I have been looking out for.
The process of recording and editing audio on IOS devices is actually very smooth. But the WordPress app then causes things to become a little more bumpy. There is no support from within the app for browsing to audio. So it is necessary to save the audio to the file system using ferrite then upload it from there to WordPress. This isn’t obvious at the start as WordPress actually shows in the share sheet and lets you create a post. You will forgive me therefore when I Naively thought then that the audio was uploading along with the post. It certainly seemed that way.
In a future post, I aim to fully detail the process of recording, editing then publishing audio using IOS devices. It’s not as complicated as. You might think.
