MetaRecorder iOS

Ensure MetaRecorder records from external mic and not through earbud’s mic?

Question – When I connect my iPhone earbuds, MetaRecorder records the earbud’s mic signal. How can I listen through earbuds (or other headphone/mic headsets) while recording with an Apogee/Sennheiser input device (such as Apogee Mic , Sennheiser ClipMic digital or MKE 2 digital)?

Answer: Connect your Apple iPhone earbuds first and then connect your Apogee or Sennheiser input device. To monitor as you record, go to the ‘Settings’ tab and engage the ‘Input Monitor’ switch.

  • iOS uses the most recently connected audio device for audio I/O, so if an Apogee Mic is connected first and then a headset after, audio apps will use the headset for input and output. If the headset is connected first and then the MiC after, audio apps will use the headset for output and the MiC for input.
