Versatile With Stunning Sound for Cell Phone Movies
I'm just scratching the surface on this great piece of equipment...
My quest was simply to find a product that can deliver direct high quality audio while shooting video on an android cell phone. At first, my sales person was confused when I told him what I was trying to do, as he wasn't sure of potential compatibility issues with my equipment. He stayed with me, did the digging, and helped me find my solution! I can't say enough about the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff at Sweetwater.
I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which has a superior camera, but as with all cell phones, lousy audio. This little gizmo does the trick! I've tested it with a Neuman TLM 103 Condenser Microphone, a Blue Baby Bottle Condenser Microphone, and a Sure Beta 58A Dynamic Microphone, all with excellent results.
By the way, I did not notice the whine described by the previous reviewer. There are a few seconds of hum when the Phantom Power switch is initially turned on or off, but to me, this is not a problem at all.
I will be using this primarily for mobile recordings to create cell phone videos with great audio quality. This tool does much much more, and can record on just about any device. It comes with some very cool aps, and 5 connecting cables! (but no power supply)
This is the first preamp I have purchased for this purpose, and I consider myself lucky.
Buy this with confidence!
