    Interested if any sound engineers/audio experts would ever consider using iPhone 5/5s recordings for Logic projects. I have an AT-2020 mic as well but I prefer the convenience of recording on the iPhone. Just curious how professionals feel :cool:.

    No way.

    Its pre-compressed/filtered and is also an abrasive reading as far as dynamics, it is unpleasant to the ear. Like your Ps and Ss will be louder for example than other letters and so on and so forth.

    There is no substitute for a condenser when it comes to vocals which treats incoming sound in a way that simulates real life balance and captures the source properly.

    The one use that could be incorporated is recording random sounds or vocals for the sake of putting tons of effects on it to where its not recognizable anymore. But not for traditional vocal recordings.
