Starting a podcast
« on: March 26, 2017, 12:38:39 pm »
First time, long time. I want to start a podcast using an IPad with two USB mics. Will purchasing the lightening adapter and splitter make this possible?

I'm pretty ignorant on podcast technology so feel free to talk to me like a wittle baby.

USB microphones are seen by the devices they're connected to as individual sound sources, and most devices will only handle one sound source at a time. It's doubtful what you're proposing here would work. You'd be better off trying a USB mixer with two analog microphones connected to it, and then connecting the mixer using a proper adapter or cable to the iPad.

Connecting to USB microphones to a computer usually requires massive workarounds with varying results. It seems unlikely it'd work with an iPad.
