iOS devices have several built in microphones which will be used by default. You can also use the microphone on a headset or any other external microphone plugged into the 3.5mm mini jack or lighting port. There are many adaptors that will allow you to connect a 1/4" (Guitar) cable into your device. You will need a a TRRS cable to connect directly from a mini-out of another device like a keyboard.
Note: Your input is set to the last input device connected. If you connect headphones with a microphone after you have connected an input device adaptor, the headphone's microphone will be used for input instead of your adaptor.
Warning: If you cancel without saving, the recording will be lost. You will be prompted to verify that you want to discard the current recording.
