The iXY will also work with a wide
range of other audio recording apps.
Please note that RØDE Rec is required to record in
24-bit/96kHz quality.

meetings to filmmaking, iXY will give you

The XY stereo pattern of the iXY
works a lot like your ears. To find
the best position for your iXY when
recording just move your head
around until you find the ‘sweet spot’
and position the iXY there!
Be sure to monitor the recording
level. RØDE Rec provides a
variable input level and headphone
monitoring to ensure you’re always
aware of what you’re recording.
Always keep the iXY at hand. Its
protective pouch can be easily
attached to a bag zipper or your
belt, so there’s no excuse for being
caught out.
Never let the iXY get wet.
When not in use or in transit keep the iXY in
its protective pouch to prevent any knocks
or scratches, and stop dust and moisture
from settling on the microphone capsules.
For long periods of storage we recommend
placing the iXY inside a small plastic bag
along with a bag of absorbent silica gel.
