Announcing the amazing, adaptable and nearly indestructible iPhone/iPad/iPod & Smartphone Summing Cable Adapters from the creative minds at Sescom. These adapters will quickly allow you to take a live feed from any mixing board and record directly into the 3.5mm headphone port of your iPhone/iPad/iPod or Smartphone. Whether you're mixing board has XLR, RCA or 1/4" line-level outputs (and most mixers have a combination of at least 2 or more of these), there is a summing adapter that will connect with your board or audio source.
Anywhere there is a PA system, you can now record the audio right to your smartphone whether it's a press conference, lecture, corporate & town hall meeting or live music event! It also delivers simple way to bring the highest quality audio along with the video you're shooting on your phone or tablet. Now musicians can stream their shows live and in real-time. Sporting events being broadcast live via YouTube, Periscope or Facebook can quickly patch in the play-by-play announcers. The possibilities are endless.
Virtually any source with a line level output can be recorded directly onto your iPhone or smartphone! This is also great for sound effect engineers who need a safety or backup reference copy off their field mixer. No worries concerning outside noise either! The iPhone will recognize an external source is connected and turn its internal mic off allowing you to record from whatever source you are connected to without noise bleeding through. This adapter works with all audio/video recording apps.
Since the combined headset jack on the iPhone has a mono mic input, you cannot record in "true" L/R stereo but it is important to know that these adapters will blend the left and right stereo channels properly, safely and evenly into one channel. This is called "summing" and it is accomplished by adding resistors which safely combine both the left and right channels into one channel to record onto your iPhone or smartphone device. The result is an outstanding and realistic stereo to mono blend that plays back in both the left and right side of your headphones when you listen back!
