Rode announced a stereo X-Y microphone for Apple's iOS devices. The microphone connects via the dock and provides up to 24-bit, 96-KHz audio. Also announced as an app to provide filters and post editing, plus sharing. A $5 version offers greater features over the free. The product will ship with a 30-pin connector and a lightning version is expected about 6 months or so later, pending Apple approval.
The Rode ixy is expected to be available in February/March for $200.
