Description:
This adapter allows you to connect a line-level audio source with 3.5mm (1/8 inch) connector to the iPhone/iPad/iPod or other compatible device for quality recording. This adapter is NOT for recording from microphones. Use this adapter to record from headphone jacks, audio output jacks or from mixers and soundboards that have line-level outputs. The headset connections only have a mono mic input so, although you can connect a stereo signal, it will only record in mono. This adapter incorporates a built-in attenuator which reduces the line level signal down to a mic-level signal suitable for input for recording. This adapter works with cables that have a mono or stereo 1/8 (3.5mm) connector.

Types of equipment that work with this adapter:
  • Line-Level audio output sources
  • Mixers and soundboards with line-level outputs
  • Headphone outputs
Types of equipment that will NOT work with this adapter:
  • Microphones - use the microphone version adapters
  • outputs that are mic-level

How it Works:
Plug the adapter into the iPhone (or other device) headset jack and then plug your audio source cable into the adapter. The iPhone will recognize that an external audio source is connected and turn its internal mic off allowing you to record using the external source. This adapter works with all audio/video recording apps and other functions just as the internal mic would.

Product FAQs:

Q: Will this adapter work with a stereo audio source?
A: The combined headset jack on the iPhone and other devices only has a mono mic input so you cannot record in stereo. Most recording apps split the mono signal into both left/right channels when recording so the audio will play back in both ears. You can connect a stereo signal to this adapter but only the left side will be active; if you use a stereo-to-mono adapter on your input cable then it will make both left/right channels combined and active. There is a new stereo microphone product available which will allow for stereo recording using the docking connector; this is currently the only option available for stereo recording, Tascam IM2 stereo mic.

Q: Why do I need a different adapter for a microphone?
A: The iPhone headset mic input is a mic-level input. The mic-level signal is much lower than a line-level signal which is used in audio outputs. This adapter has a built-in attenuator which reduces line-level signals down to mic-level signal strength. If you connect a mic to this adapter the signal would be reduced to a point that you would not be able to hear it in a recording. Use the MIC versions of this adapter for recording from microphones.

Q: Can I connect a cable with a different style connector if I use an adapter?
A: Yes, you can use an adapter to convert from a 1/4 inch output or XLR, ect. We also have this adapter in those connector versions as well.

Q: Can I connect two audio sources?
A: Yes, you can use a standard 3.5mm splitter adapter to connect two audio sources which will combine the signals from both sources into this adapter. Alternately, you could use a small mixer to combine the signals from multiple sources into this adapter.


Compatibility List:

Compatible with most mobile devices that use the combined headphone/mic connection.

Not Compatible with some devices using the combined headset connection like versions of Motorola Droid phones and earlier versions of the Samsung Galaxy phones. and; some Manufacturers use a different method for wiring the headset connection.

Q; How do I know if this adapter will work with my phone or device?

A; Due to the massive number of new phones, versions and devices being released we are not able to test the adapter with all devices; however, if your device works with an iPhone headset (headphones and microphone) then this adapter will also work on your device.

  • Test your phone/device with a iPhone headset (perhaps try it with a friends iPhone headset)

OR

  • Look up a new headset for your phone/device and check the compatibility list to see if it is also compatible with iPhone.
