Best portable mic and guitar interface under $50 – Tascam iXZ

If you have an iPhone or iPad with a headphone jack, and are looking for the most convenient way to connect a guitar or microphone, then the Tascam iXZ may be just what you are looking for.
The Tascam iXZ sports a combo jack for XLR and TS (1/4″) connections, allowing you to connect any microphone (including condenser microphones) as well as any guitar or instrument that uses a 1/4″ (6.35mm) TS plug.

The Tascam iXZ has phantom power to support condenser microphones, an input gain control to ensure you don’t clip your signal, and a headphone output so that you can overdub and multi-track guitars, vocals and other parts.

If you are looking for something with a super quiet signal and low noise floor, then a digital interface may be a better option – see my link to the Steinberg UR12 review below for my suggested digital interface.
