Stopped by the Griffin booth and found out about their newest device - the Mic Connect. This is a box that will take any XLR micorophone and connect it to an iPad. The Mic Connect runs on AA batteries and has a +48 switch. That means it will supply the phantom power to a microphone so you can use whatever you choose.
Griffin Mic Connect (Griffin Mic Connect) also uses the 3.5 mm jack instead of the connector. That way you are assured you can use whatever iOS or Android device to record podcasts, music or other audio.
The Griffin Mic Connect is $39.95 and the mount is also $39.95.
