The RØDE smartLav Lavalier Condenser Microphone turns your Apple or mobile phone into a high-quality voice recording device. This makes for a really nice backup recording option if you’re ever in a pinch or for when you need to record a quality audio and share the file quickly. The smartLav is capable of recording any sample rate up to 96kHz.

The RØDE smartLav Lavalier Condenser Microphone connects via the TRRS plug which goes directly to your mobile or iDevice headphone jack and comes with a mounting clip for a lapel. The mic head has a foam pop filter to minimize wind noise and vocal plosives. Having a capsule with an Omni directional pattern, the mic can be oriented in different positions for optimal audio capturing or to avoid distortion from sudden peaks if it’s too close to the subject.
You can use any recording app on your device although the RØDE Rec LE FREE app. has plenty of features to do your basic recording and exporting of high-quality audio. There’s also a RØDE Rec HD app. that has expanded features such as additional file export options, a built in signal processing by Izotope, timeline markers, variable playback speeds the ability to edit the files within the app.
RØDE Rec HD
One thing thats great about having an app in your IOS device is the option to upload files in the cloud with a single touch. The LE version has the option for uploading to SoundCloud & iTunes sharing while the HD has additional options like Dropbox & other web browsing options.
For the quality of audio recording that you get for around $60 coupled with the capabilities of the RØDE Red app, I think this is a really great lav mic addition to have in your audio kit.
