Recording with Cubasis & Behringer UCA222

thesoundtestroom has posted a 30 minute long demonstration of one of the cheapest ways to record input on your iDevices. Dissatisfied with the audio-bleed of IK's cheap iRig, he went with the even cheaper Behringer UCA222($30) and loved it.

Not shown in this video, but definietly worth noting, is the UCA222 also features a SPDIF Out! If you already have an audio interface with SPDIF In, this is also the cheapest way to get your iPad's live audio into your PC in pure digital.

Video Description:

A demo and tutorial of using the Behringer UCA222 with an iPad 2 to record external audio into Cubasis and Audiobus.

In this manic video I record VST's, a guitar, bass, and a synth live into Cubasis from start to finish including some problems we all encounter..but the Behringer UCA222 performs perfectly and so does Cubasis and Audiobus

Buy Audiobus on iTunes: $4.99 (On Sale)

RØDE i16 Surround Sound Recorder for iOS

Update: RØDE came clean, it is an April Fools prank. Thanks to DJ KE for pointing this out.

I'm reasonably certain that this 16 mic monstrosity from RØDE Microphones is not an April Fools joke.

Despite the impractical appearance of this surround sound recording peripheral, it is doing some pretty interesting stuff that could be very handy for all types of field recording.

The new microphone uses RØDE’s own field recording app, RØDE Rec, to record the sixteen tracks simultaneously at quality up to 24-bit/96kHz.

At the heart of the i16 is an incredible sixteen individual gold-sputtered cardioid condenser capsules, which allows the user a high amount of freedom to record in either surround, stereo, mono, or anywhere in between.

“Once the user records the surrounding environment, software processing inside RØDE Rec will allow them to cancel background noise through phase manipulation of the other channels, working much in the same way as noise-cancelling headphones.” explained Mr Freedman. “In this way the i16 is even more effective at recording dialogue than a traditional shotgun microphone.”

That sounds almost too good to be true. I did some digging and it was actually announced on Sunday, but that was April 1st for the Australian-based company. Sonic State reported on it though, and various DSLR blogs are super-excited about it.

I'm still not sure after watching this promo-video. Is this some subtle Aussy Trolling? One dude actually says, "Buy a man bag."
