Is an iphone good at recording music without distortion during a video of a live

    Is an iphone good at recording music without distortion during a video of a live performance?

    Do you get a good sound with an I phone? Does the sound quality of an i-phone suffer with fuzz and buzz?

    No, the built-in microphone doesn't handle the high SPL that a live band produces.

    it will pick up sound ok as long as the iphone is not in a pocket or purse.  It will pick up every noise around you as well.  If you are not close to the stage, the picture will be mediocre at best especially in low light, but the sound will be about what you heard while at the concert.  IF you are going to be near the stage for the concert, you should have a decent picture and sound if it is not too dark and the stage lights are not overpowering.  Bright and colorfull stagelights tend to over power the recorded picture.  Hope this helps.

      This is actually very helpful.  I know the i-phone is a bit of a hit and miss, but not a bad punt if you have it on you all the time - small and compact - just point and shoot!  Thank you for your response!

    As long as you can get your hands on some good audio software then it shouldn't be a problem.  If you record a few seconds of silence/background noise before your performance you can use the software to take a profile of that background noise/silence and then use noise reduction to remove it.  I'm not sure if Audacity has the background noise function or not, some software can be expensive.

      Thank you. Can you recommend a good software for the iphone in order to do this?  I like free, but understand that it doesn't tend to happen with iphone apps.  BTW... you would download the software with an app from itunes, presumably??

      I'm not sure if there are iPhone apps to do this, personally I transfer my recordings to the PC then use Windows software for noise reduction.  Im actually on Android though, I use Cool Edit Pro but it's expensive.

    LOL.  You'd get better audio quality with an 8mm windup!
