Hi friends, today we will see how you can connect an external microphone to your tablet or phone.
Finally you will see that the difference between internal and one external microphone.
Something about the sound recording ...
To make a capture audio quality, we need a good microphone placed close to the sound source. Even though we have the most powerful microphone in the world is worthless if it is too far from the sound source.
When you place the microphone close to the source, we obtain a very good SNR, SNR stands for signal to noise ratio, ie the ratio of signal and noise. Understand this well if you try to talk to someone on the phone in a noisy environment, at the opposite end will surely complain about the sound quality.
In addition to SNR, we are interested in the effect of this, got hurt when the microphone is placed near the source. The effect of this depends on the microphone, but in general we emphasize more voice.
Why not use the internal microphone?
The internal microphone is exactly where it would have to be. Normally the room must not have microphone, unless they are isolated by a shock absorption system (shock mount).

If the microphone is on the camera, it is obvious that will capture the vibrations, noise font or anything in place to record what interests us, that voice.
Integrated microphone can only be used for rapid shooting, unimportant or capture ambient sound. Deaemenea internal microphone can be used for subsequent sync video and audio tracks, if we used an external audio recorder.
As we can connect the microphone to the phone or tablet, we need a special adapter, which you find in stores or ebay or amazon.

    An interesting tutorial for the most enthusiastic
    Can you tell me, please, how to use your tablet as a laptop microphone (or link to the tutorial if already exists (if already exist tutorial on the site means that you did not know I was looking for: D) ) .I tried several methods, but were not satisfactory ... they heard a pledge / base (do not know how to describe more clearly) is true is that there was no sound, clean ... be heard chicken interference when two Call phones side by side in (microphone think the phenomenon is called).
    Thanks and good luck!

    • A simple desktop microphone is quite cheap, I do not think it's worth bother.
      Now I do not know what you want to do, I suppose you want to do a desktop capture with sound. You can record audio in phone / tablet, then synchronize video with audio.

    I salute you, I want to know if a record for using an application can use the microphone from headphones? Or we need another external microphone? The microphone jack adapter needs or go without?

  3. Thanks for the tutorial. Very useful! The link is on amazon.co.uk on ebay but it's not good to have an account on amazon. Show different cable on amazon to your Cabul (and an adapter on amazon is the same product with a pound more expensive microphone that has a drawing on it). Yours are more expensive than those on amazon? I'm interested in something of quality. Sennheiser headphones are at what price and where to buy?

    • Sennheiser headphones are HD201 and are in any specialty store.

        I think if you talk about those headphones and earphones on generally a good idea, professional sound monitors, speakers for studio monitoring, audio supply facilities 2.0, 2.1 etc., as a suggestion of course, need to hear in a sound and quality of the microphone, music etc.

    Howdy!
    For those interested in such a cable (like me) you can buy it on http://www.aliexpress.com/item/3-5mm-4-Pin-to-2x-3-Pin-3-5mm-Headset-Splitter-Adapter-M-F/1981658078.html
    I do not know if it's exactly the same company that produced it, but apparently do the job.
    I need it for the laptop, I have an Acer Aspire E5-571G audio jack that has a mother with 4 3.5 pins.
    Phone headsets work well (a headset from LG and another from Allview) but I want to put gaming headphones, and thanks to this tutorial I found what I needed splitter type.
    I saw splitter on Amazon (link placed by you) but not obijnuit to order from Amazon, I ordered prefer AliExpress because there many electronic (microcontrolare kits) and I had no problem.
    By mail, reach fixed 3 weeks for those interested in buying there.
    All the best!

    • Cam microphones that they've strung, are dynamic, which means they need amplification, or hear very, very slowly. You have to use a capacitor or condenser microphone amplified electet. Find a microphone that has battery. Microphones on phones are electet type, but does not offer audio quality even that good.
      Tutorial I've used in a lavalier microphone DPA 4060 connected to a Wireless kit Sony UWP D12Because this had on hand. You do not have anything to use it. A condenser lavalier microphone battery is sufficient. A decent quality price offers Audio-Technica ATR-3350.
      Alternatively, you can use the Shure SM58 with a small amplifier, it is a very good small.
