If you’ve ever tried doing a facebook live session you know that using your phone’s onboard microphone really sucks. Here is how we solved this problem with a $15 cable from rode.
Of course, we do assume that you have a microphone capable of producing great sound (we are using Rode’s Filmmaket kit). So it is not $15 for great sound, it is extra $15 to bring your (already awesome) sound into your smartphone or tablet live broadcast. The cable is called Rode SC4, and it converts DSLR microphones into smartphone and tablet microphones.
In the video we also show how to hook up more than one microphone to an iPad, say for an interview or a panel using a Tascam DR70, and a few XLR microphones.
