Zoom iQ7 MS Stereo Microphone Overview
Zoom iQ7 Overview by GAK (iPhone not included)
The Zoom iQ7 is a compact, mid-side stereo condenser microphone that plugs directly in to any iOS device, 5th generation or later. The Zoom iQ7 is the ideal device for allowing you to record professional sounding audio through your iOS phone or tablet. Featured on this small microphone device is a large front-facing MIC GAIN knob making it simple to set the optimum input level.
- 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.
