I picked up one of these from Professional Sound and Music here in San Diego to use with my iPhone 3GS for session recordings. I am very impressed both with the sound and build quality of the microphone.

It has three gain level presets and the head pivots for a variety of usage scenarios. Also has a stereo line-in jack.

Apple changed the dock pinouts to remove the analog audio inputs on the latest iPhone 4, iPad, iPad 2, and generation 4 iPod Touch, so this microphone unfortunately won't work on those devices. It works perfectly with the older iPhone, iPhone 3G, and iPhone 3GS, as well as the generation 1-3 iPod Touch. Even works with the generation 1-4 iPod Nano as well the older hard disk based iPods.

The microphone MSRP is $79.00.

For recording software, I've been using iProRecorder by Bias ($0.99 on the iTunes App Store), quite pleased with the results:

I'm happy to report that Bias has update their iProRecorder app so that it no longer crashes if you lock the device to turn the screen off, then unlock the screen. Much better now. Previously, you had to leave the display on all the time when recording, which used up the battery very quickly on the iPhone.

Coupla questions: Have you tried it with iTalk? That's what I use for recording - it's quite good! Also, it appears that it doesn't work with iPhone 4. Is that still true?

It can't work with iPhone 4 or either of the iPads (or iPod Touch 4th Generation) since Apple removed the analog audio input pins from the dock connector on those devices. For those, someone will have to release a microphone with a built-in A/D convertor. Haven't tried it with iTalk, but so far it has worked with every other recording app I've tried as well as with the iStroboSoft tuner app.
