The Rode smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone Kit with SC3 Adapter allows for use with the Rode Wireless GO or any other TRS system.
Bundled together for your convenience, this Rode smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone Kit lets you pair your smartLav+ with DSLR cameras, as well as other devices that only accept a TRS connection.
The smartLav sports a TRRS connection, which makes it compatible with most smartphones that still have 3.5mm input jacks. However, many recording systems are not outfitted with TRRS jacks instead, their 3.5mm input is a TRS jack.
It's one tiny, extra "R," but a headache of connectivity issues resides in that extra letter. Luckily this kit solves these issues by providing you with a Rode SC3 3.5mm TRRS to TRS Adapter.
Rode smartLav+ Lavalier Condenser Microphone for Smartphones
The smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade wearable microphone designed for use in a wide range of film, television and broadcast scenarios, or wherever broadcast quality audio is required in a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment.
With the smartLav+ the user simply mounts the microphone on the talent, connects it to a smartphone or tablet headset jack and records via the RØDE Rec app for iOS, or any other audio app of their choice.
By employing a professional quality omni-directional condenser capsule the smartLav+ picks up sound equally from all around the microphone, allowing for versatility when mounting and ensuring a high degree of user-friendly operation.
A foam pop shield is supplied to minimise wind noise and vocal plosives (hard ‘b’, ‘t’ and ‘p’ sounds), as well as a durable mounting clip with in-built cable management. Its Kevlar® reinforced cable ensures that you never stretch or snap your microphone under normal usage conditions.
The smartLav+ is compatible with any audio app that accepts input from the headset connection, however it has been designed to pair perfectly with RØDE’s RØDE Rec app for Apple iOS devices. RØDE Rec turns the user’s iOS device into a fully-featured field recorder, with a wide range of equalisation presets to suit various recording situations, in addition to professional editing functions and the ability to publish to SoundCloud and Dropbox direct from the app.
