What's the best microphone for recording to the iPod Touch?

Episode 976 (18:17)

Pranav from California

Pranav is a musician who wants to record some love songs using his iPod. Leo says that he can do that using Garage Band. He's interested in getting a higher quality mic, though. Leo says that Apogee Electronics has a studio quality microphone, called the MiC. It has a 30 pin connector with digital recording support.

Pranav is wondering about the Samson Meteor mic. Leo likes Samson mics, they're very high quality. The size may be an issue, however, and Pranav will probably have to use a connector kit with it because it uses USB. At $70, it is a great deal, though.
