Zoom iQ7 MS Stereo Microphone
Zoom iQ7 Overview by GAK (iPhone not included)
The Zoom iQ7 is a compact, mid-side stereo condenser microphone that plugs directly
- The iQ7's rotating mechanism ensures correct left-right stereo orientation whether you're creating audio-only recordings or capturing audio for your video.
- Mid-side is an advanced recording technique that allows the width of the stereo image to be varied, even in post-production. The two microphone elements in the iQ7 include a directional "mid" mic that captures signal coming from directly in front of your iOS device, and a bidirectional "side" mic that captures the audio coming from both sides.
- A three-way switch allows you to select between 90Â° (to focus on sounds coming from the center) and 120Â° (for a wider image that includes ambience and room signal). A third setting, labeled "M-S," enables you record the audio "raw" and adjust its stereo width afterwards, using Zoom's free downloadable Handy Recorder iOS app.
- The iQ7 offers advanced features that allow you to create extraordinary stereo recordings every time. A large front-facing MIC GAIN knob allows you to easily set the optimum input level, and three-segment level LED level meters ensure clean, crisp sound with no signal overload.
- In addition, a dedicated headphone jack-which doubles as a line output-allows you to monitor your audio during both recording and playback.
