microphone for ipad

Hi, I am looking to record some basic quality videos on an iPad, but I want the quality of the sound to be high. Can anyone recommend a good microphone? The video will be taken inside with one or two people talking in an interview-style conversation. TIA

Have you done a Google search......

..... .online for "external microphones for an iPad". A quick search found several products. You would get more feedback if you select a product and ask additional questions about the device. Good luck, there appears to be several products available out there.

Yes, I have. Was just hoping for some feedback from anyone who had used specific brands. Will go back to my searching. Thanks.

Here's the search you need.


This way you can hear what folk thought about various models.

But frankly as a Tascam DR-40 owner and having a few other such things and mics I worry about mics to the iPad and comparing such to the real deal (nod to that Tascam) and putting the audio video together in post production. This is how it's usually done for the best results and if you compare what folk do with products like the XLR mics and say those Tascam units you may find yourself wondering how they did that.

Apple devices itself have great voice recorder.
