Re: Connecting a T4S audio feed from Analog Mono Output to iPhone 8 or 11 Pro while it is making ...

As noted in my subject line, I'm trying to shoot video on an iPhone 8 and/or 11Pro. I have a 1/4" coming from the Analog Mono Output of the T4S to an iRig that allows me to adapt to a lightning dongle going into the iPhone. Problems are:

Cannot turn off the microphone in the iPhone which makes it impossible to hear the T4S feed clearly. Also, even with the Main Volume turned down on the T4S, I am overdriving into the iPhone. I have a Zoom H4n digital recorder and may have to use it instead of the audio track produced by the iPhone. Would rather keep it simple and avoid the extra track to cut into the mix in Final Cut ProX, but will do if it means I can only get a full spectrum of WAV file fidelity from the Zoom and not available from the iPhone.. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Many thanks!

Dylan,

 

Also, it might be of interest that I am working in my own audio/video studio with the T4S which is the best preamp/mixer ever! Had two T1's and sold them the other day. No comparison especially since the T4S will drive both of my L1's. Hope to produce a variety of studio videos with superb Bose sound showcasing what I do. See Wonderofitall.org.

 

Thanks Again!

Hey John,

Thanks for providing these details, glad to hear you're enjoying the T4S! 

This issue may arise because there isn't a way to manually set a specific audio input device for the iPhone's camera (to my knowledge). I did a bit of research online, and it may be to do with the order in which you open the camera app and connect the audio device - I recommend checking out this post for more detail. 
 

For the best audio fidelity, I think it would be best (and maybe less hassle) to record the audio separately then cut it to the video at the editing stage. 

Hope this helps!

Hi Dylan, thanks for your input and links - all were helpful and have led me into abandoning the idea of recording high quality audio while using my iPhones for two camera video shoots. I'm looking to upgrade my Zoom H4n for and H5 which has better preamps with ability to work with my SM58 microphone. Since I'm using Final Cut Pro, adding another track should not be difficult. All good and again, the T4S is a big leap forward for the indy artist.
