The Rode NT3 Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone for Great Audio

I have owned this Rode NT3 Hypercardioid Condenser Microphone for about 1 1/2 Years and never really tested it out. So, I had a little time to give it a try and made this quick video.

It’s an XLR Style Mic, so you’ll need a way to plug-in XLR Connections with your set-up. The way I was able to do that was by using an iRig Pre PreAmplifier made by IK Multimedia. The iRig Pre allowed me to be able to plug the audio from the Rode NT3 into my iPhone and capture the audio.

I think you might be interested in this video, so take a look and see what you think.

Thanks.

Could it be possible that a good Lavaliere Microphone that you can plug into your Smartphone can be good, I mean Really Good??

I watch for good deals when it comes to Audio and Video editing equipment. This Lav/Lapel microphone came along and I had to see if it was Too Good To Be True.

It’s called the Gora Lav Mic and it’s only $20.00! It plugs into your iPhone or Android device and is supposed to have really good audio quality.

Let’s see if it lives up to what is being said about it:

Here is what I used to shoot this video of this Gora Lav Mic:
