@JohnPhilpin I want something better for field recording/ birdsong and I’ve been looking at the iRig Mic Field. Not sure what to get though.

@stefp didn’t get one. This looks great Shure MV88 Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone but a bit rich for me at the mo.

@stefp @JohnPhilpin I have an older cheaper iRig. Was not great bit of noise.

@johnjohnston That looks nice. I’ve been considering the iRig Mic Field. It’s less expensive but still not exactly cheap.

@stefp I read newer iRigs are better. The one I have is audio jack not lightening.

@johnjohnston If I do decide to get that one I’ll report back.
