When recording with the Riverside app on your mobile device, we recommend using:

  • Wired headphones and a wireless Bluetooth microphone;

  • Wired headphones with an in-line microphone; or

  • A Bluetooth headset with a built-in microphone (like AirPods).

Currently, the app does not support external audio devices that connect to your mobile device and require an additional power source (like the Rode VideoMic). If you want to use this equipment, please record using a computer.

You can find a checklist of recording best practices here.


Using an adapter to connect a wired mic may degrade the audio quality.
