    Question… your article here has a title which implies that the apogee mic is for the iPad MINI, yet your article mentions nothing of the MINI and only alludes to the iPad. I am trying to figure out if the apogee plugs into the ipad mini (lightning jack) or just the ipad (30-pin jack), can you help? And if the apogee DOES plug into the ipad MINI, is the quality the same as it is with the regular ipad? Lastly, i am doing an interview show/podcoast, using only my mini for recording… so i need to TWO mics, ideally… does apogee provide, or do you know of anyone who provides, an input line to the ipad mini that connects to TWO external mics and allows for TWO separate recording tracks with these two mics (for mixing later on in garageband on the ipad mini)?

      The Apogee Mic comes with a 30-pin cable so you’ll need a lighting converter for iPad mini connection. I got one at Best Buy for $20 or so. The quality is great on the iPad mini, iPhone and iMac. I haven’t tested on any of my other iPads but I assume it’s of similar quality.

      Simultaneous, dual mic, dual track recording on the iPad mini? I’m sure it’s possible but I really don’t know of any apps or hardware to accommodate that off the top of my head.

    This sounds great for close up work – at your desk.

    I’m wondering how well it works/wounds in a performance situation.
    e.g. – a room about 100′ x 50′ with the mic maybe 6″ or maybe 6 or 20 feet from a singer?
