So since Steve passed and the company is going down a terrible slope of mis-steps I was wondering if anyone has a work around so we can input a microphone other than the iPhone buds? I have a Rode mic but of course it won't hook up to the headphone port even with a TRS to TRSS adaptor. Some people still mobile PodCast and Edit Video using that Apple Program Final Cut Pro and need a decent sounding voice over... So what have people come up with. Are there any plug and play solutions or is this a lost cause? Thanks so much for the insight.
