Customer Reviews

Mind blowingly, bewilderingly, inconceivable...

Mind blowingly, bewilderingly, inconceivable that Rode's on app doesn't recognise its mic. I cannot believe that they still haven't resolved the problem on the iPad. My iPhone sees the mic but not on iPad. I've been recording on my iPhone for a while but came back to the iPad to do some work on it today and this problem still exists a year or so later and with many others having the same problem. Rode obviously don't look at these reviews.

Their mics are great and my first choice for years but the software is terrible in this way.

Buy their mics and use on alternative recording software.

Utter rubbish

I bought the iXYZ when it first came out and made half a dozen recordings with it. That was two years ago. Since then, the app simply hasn’t worked. At all. In its latest iteration it will record from the iPhone’s internal microphone. What it won’t do is record from Rode’s own expensive microphone. This appears to be a common problem and happens regardless of the set sample rate. A truly dreadful product and abysmal support from Rode, who appear not to understand the most basic principles of software development and testing. Avoid at all costs.

Ignore my previous 'Don't buy' review...

...the app just magically started working again - I didn't change a thing so must have been an update.
The app is far superior to the iPhone native voice recorder - I use it for recording song ideas, guitar chord sequences etc. So it's all good again!
