How do I disable internal iPad mic?
Hi, Hamish here. My first post and question to anyone out there is how the hell do I disable the internal mic in my ipad2. I have a tascam audio interface which plugs into the headphone socket. Every time I record something I get bleed into the iPads built in mic and can't figure out how to disable/bypass/switch off. Anybody?

There is no setting to manually turn off the internal mic. Each app enables it as needed.
A properly seated microphone plug should disable the iPad's internal mic. At least it does with my standard Apple headphone jacks, for those apps I've tested. That's not a huge number by any means.
Here is a picture of the Apple plug (it's industry standard, as far as I know). It is isn't a good picture, but should be enough for this purpose. Maybe you can get a pinout for the Tascam jack and see if it's the same.
If this doesn't help try contacting Tascam, or the developer of the app you are using with the interface.
Edit: I should have just posted this link, which is way more informative, especially if you read the notes.
