Thanks. Anything with the lightning connector for iphone 5 yet?

...I would rather have an app or setting that would disable the software low-cut so that I can just use the phone's 3.5 headset jack to line-in. How many devices are out there like the iRig or in my case the Tascam iXz that use the 3.5 plug yet there's not a way to disable the low-cut???

None that I've seen. All the input devices I've tried have worked fine with the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.

The problem is that the 3.5 headset is designed for a mono phone mic, not flat stereo digital audio. The headphone jack has a roll off below 200Hz and probably always will. For decent sound, you always need to go though the lightning connector.
I also use Apogee's Jam and MiC. They sound great. Both are even capable of 24bit audio in on the few apps that support it.

Thanks for the info. I am not wanting flat stereo nor digital input from the 3.5. Only wanting flat mono. But before I go the apogee route (which is a $150-200 solution, not to mention a solution that will add more devices to the connection and thus more opportunities for noise), I will probably just resort to purchasing an ipad (can get a mini for $299) . My mixer has usb out, and I can go straight into the ipad digitally with the usb camera kit, albeit I still can't split 1 stereo channel into 2 mono channels. But I digress: my entire purpose for this post is that i would like to stay as mobile as possible by using the iphone, but with all the darn limitations imposed by no one other than Apple, what could be an easy way to record has been nullified. What's frustrating is that all the components are there and I have them, all the hardware is more than capable; but in both cases (the 3.5 mono or the usb stereo) there is a software feature (or lack thereof) blocking me.
Again if anyone knows of an app that will disable the software low-cut, please respond...

AudioTools by studio six has a recording app that uses the measurement mode to bypass the low cut filter.
I haven't tried it, but supposedly Multitrack DAW can also use measurement mode, and is a pretty popular alternative to garageband.
Another trick that you will run into: you need a special cable with an attenuator to activate the line in. http://www.kvconnection.com/product-p/km-iphone-2trs-a22.htm?CartID=1.
