Periscope Tip: How to bring in audio from your mixer into your iPhone or iPad
by Cliff Ravenscraft on August 22, 2015
I am so excited to announce that I have found a solution for bringing audio from my mixer into my iPhone or iPad so that that I can stream live on Periscope using my Heil microphones while also being able to include sound clips and jingles.
To do this, I am using the iRig 2 from IK Multimedia and a 1/8″ TRS to 1/4″ TS adapter. Note: I’m bringing the audio out of the headphones jack of my mixer (actually, I use a headphone amplifer found on my equipment page.
When I done live streaming in the past, I was sending audio from my headphones amplifier into a camera that had a 1/8″ TRS microphone input via a 25 foot 1/8″ TRS Patch cable. To plug this
cable into my headphone amp, I used a simple 1/8″ TRS to 1/4″ TRS adapter .
Now, instead of plugging the other end of that cable into my camera, I am plugging it the adapter and the iRig 2 mentioned above, which is connected to my iPhone or iPad.
I’m so excited that I was finally able to find this solution as Stephanie and I recently announced that we were going back to a weekly schedule for our Family From The Heart podcast and that we plan to stream the recording of the show via Periscope. We’ll be doing this each Thursday at 11am Eastern Time if you want to check out the show, I’m @GSPN on Periscope.
I tested the setup on Periscope earlier today and it worked great. I took the recording from my iPad and uploaded it to my YouTube channel. Check out the video below.
