Record and monitor two lavalier mics at once with your iOS device thanks to the new SC6-L Mobile system from RØDE, which looks ideal for all kinds of mobile recording tasks.

iPhones and iPads make the perfect portable recording studios but they're not the whole story - you need to be able to record and monitor in high quality using specially designed mics and other hardware. Luckily, RØDE's latest release is a portable pocket recording system designed to let you do just that. For video work, interviews and podcasting in particular it looks to be just the ticket.

Here's what they told us about it.

August 2nd, 2018 - Australian pro audio giant RØDE Microphones launches the brand new SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit, the latest Lightning connected recording solution for Apple iOS Devices.

The SC6-L is a compact duo-3.5mm TRRS-to-Lightning Mobile Interface that enables broadcast-quality audio recording with two RØDE smartLav+ microphones; a compact solution for on-the-go interviews and podcasts, both for audio only and filmed scenarios. It’s a pro-quality pocket podcast studio!

Thanks to the 3.5mm headphone jack, you can both monitor in real time and listen to playback. Download the free RØDE Reporter App to adjust input and monitor levels, along with a suite of other settings to reduce work in post – you can even share it immediately. The Mobile Interview Kit will also work with other iOS recording software. Simply plug-set-&-record.

The SC6-L Mobile Interview Kit comes packaged with the new SC6-L Interface, 2 x Clips, 2 x Windshields, 1 x Storage Pouch, and 2 x smartLav+ Microphones – RØDE's professional-grade lavaliers. These discreet and portable miniature mics are made with omnidirectional condenser capsules and Kevlar® reinforced cables – the ideal choice for a wide range of film, TV, podcast and broadcast applications.
