I was due meet a client in Brighton yesterday, the Apple store was near by so I called in and asked a few questions on your behalf about mics.
The reception person said he required to call the audio master, audio master came over and we chatted.
He said he was a musician DJ and knew the best set up for iPad and mics.
I said that is perfect here is the problem what solution can you offer on a USB-C mics.
He recommended this mic they sell, Shure MOTIV MV5 Digital Condenser Microphone.
I sighed and he asked why.
Connection is lightning not USB-C, I responded and suggested he as a musician claiming that the iPad was the best unit for recording music and use of a mic.
To simply tell me which mic he uses, he not allowed to do that he says.
So I would say he uses another mic and it is not an apple in store product.
I kind of felt this is a repeat of my HD experiences, I said to the man.
He then went onto claim I was wrong and every HD works with OS 13 and I was incorrect.
Oh boy I left the store, their lack of working knowledge is vast.
Maybe you're have better experiences Ichbins in your area I would like to think.
Brighton more, buy new phone makes me look cool, do not ask questions.
I did look later at mics and here is the only mic on apple store that will work in a USB-c port.
Apogee HypeMiC Microphone. £399 and it is yours.
All other mics on apple store are lightning ports only, you maybe have to buy an adapter to make it work, as a possible solution.
I also read on line, others people experiences and it would appear, most if not all, say this.
In order to get the best out of a mic you're require its own power supply.
Here is a challenge for you, maybe call apple store where you live.
Make sure they offer this return policy as in UK.
Test out the mics in store with LumaFusion and let us all know please.
One other area you maybe like to explore, Ichbins, is your local music shop.
I did this last year here in Brighton, they sell drums, guitars etc.
All the staff are tripping with imagination as they have a passion for the products they sell.
They even said why not bring in your iPad and were set up some mics and test it out.
I can still remember their enthusiasm now.
One area I noticed was if they did not know the answer, they said so.
Apple store more of a, well buy item and if it does not work let us know and bring it back sir.
Good luck with your mission Ichbins
I very much look forwards to your findings.
Ps this mic would probably suit you for your needs.
You would need an adapter for head phone to make this work on iPad USB-c
