    So I didn't do enough research and grabbed a camera connector mistakenly thinking I could use my USB gaming headset to record audio. Not enough power cap'n!

    So I was looking for a solid idea to record audio interviews with.

    Is the iRig the only option right now? It does look cool.

    A couple of Forum members have been asking this tonight - you and DontUnderstandMyIPAD. Clearly, since iRig enables an external microphone to be connected to the iPad it must be possible but I've had mixed success trying to find an adaptor that would allow any external microphone to be connected. You'd think they'd be a significant market for an adaptor of this type. Let's wait and see if anyone has some ideas here.

    I've been looking for one too and I keep reading that the Blue Microphones Snowflake would work since it doesn't draw a lot of power. I haven't found any reviews of it being used this way, but it might be worth a try.

    You'll need a power hub to get a USB mic running if running the latest iOS. This the only way I could get it going.

    You didn't mention what the mic will be used for, but this is what I'm getting for my iPad 2.

    $99.99 large diaphragm condensor studio mic that works with iPad/Camera Connection Kit, and has built-in earphone monitoring to eliminate latency issues. The specs are flat 20Hz - 20kHz, 16-bit 44.1/48kHz and a pro-size condenser diaphragm that's one of the largest available in a USB mic. It has its own stand or can be mounted on a standard mic stand, and it is VERY cool looking, even comes in gold for extra $$. :)

    Samson Audio - Meteor Mic

    I think you soon see a lot of folks carrying this around.

    With the Griffin iMic you can plug in any old mic but you would need adapters if your ext mic has XLR connectors.

    MicW just came out with a plug and play external mic for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that meets the IEC61672 Class 2 Sound Level Meter standard. Simply plug the mic into the headphone jack socket to operate. More info at mic-w-usa.appspot.com
