Along with such tools as RØDE’s iXY & smartLav iOS microphones and the accompanying RØDE Rec app & RØDEGrip, we also saw Apogee release an upgrade to its iPad/Mac preamp/interface/mic device, the Apogee ONE. Apogee’s suite of high-quality audio devices scales all the way up to its Symphony I/O interfaces. In a recently announced promotion, Apogee is offering its Symphony 64 | ThunderBridge interface for connecting Symphony I/O to Thunderbolt Macs at a 50% discount.

We recently posted about RØDE’s iXY microphone and Rec app for iOS devices. While perhaps not suitable for everyone’s needs (or inversely, budget), it marks another step toward a lone multi-purpose tool handy to the crafty filmmaker — the iOS iPhone/iPad.
