Hello !

 

For a long time i've been searching on Google how to plug a microphone into an iPad, but i did not find a satisfying solution, so here i am !

 

Here is the problem :

 

I have the Ipad Retina, and i would like to record videos, using the Ipad's Camera for the video, but using an external micro for the audio.

 

The problem is that when i plug my microphone in the Ipad's Jack connector, and record a video, it does not work, because i'm pretty sure the iPad thinks that it's earphones that are connected, not a microphone ^^

 

So i've been searching over the web and i bought this little adaptor :

Which is a basic 3.5mm jack female -> male but for " Iphone / Ipad " ...

 

But it still not working !

 

Here is on the left, the cable of my microphone, and on the right, the adapter.

I plug the cable of my microphone into the adapter, and then plug in it to the iPad

But Still nothing ...

 

Do you have any solution for me ?

 

And please, do not tell me to buy one of this 50$ piece of plastic cable that " are apple product compatible ", i'm pretty sure there is a way to get this thing to simply.. work..

 

Thanks for your support !
