Product Features in Detail
Compatibility that speaks volumes
With a Lightning connector, this handy stereo microphone works well with iPhone, iPad and iPad Touch devices. Likewise, the iQ5 is accepted by iOS apps such as Garageband and Voice Memo. Meanwhile, the free Zoom Handy Recorder app adds a ton of audio tools that can help finetune the recording. This program allows you to edit the sound in its waveform and change its EQ, reverb and compression settings. Once you are done editing, you can save the file as PCM or AAC.
Versatility for Audio and Video
The iQ5 employs a unique rotating mechanism that enables audio recording with correct left-right stereo orientation whether used vertically or horizontally. Use it in standard “audio” position or simply rotate it to the “video” position in order to record video with the attached iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch held horizontally.
Mid-Side Stereo Made Easy
Mid-side recording makes it easy for anyone to record in realistic (and fully mono-compatible) stereo. The iQ5 contains a directional “mid” mic that captures audio coming from in front and a bidirectional “side” mic that covers ambient signal. This allows for the customization of stereo width to either 90° to focus on an individual sound or 120° to include surrounding ambience and reverberation. The mid and side mic signals can also be recorded as raw MS data which stereo width can be adjusted from 30° to 150° with Zoom's free Handy Recorder iOS app.
Precision control and monitoring
The iQ5 makes it easy to capture great sound no matter what type of material you’re recording. Dial in the exact input level you need with the analog-type MIC GAIN wheel, choose Auto Gain to automatically set the perfect recording level, or use the Limiter setting to avoid overloads. Also, the iQ5's dedicated headphone jack enables direct monitoring during both recording and playback.
Powered by the device
The iQ5 does not have an external power source. Just plug it to the iOS device and it will start working.
