G2/3 to Android

H E L P ?
Get sound to an Android smart phone > via G2/3
According to the pin out which states: > [mic] shield hot (+); R1 cold/shield ; headphones; rings: 3 & 4
I wash to feed unbalanced mic or -10dB level.... and is there any metering or indication of inputs levels?
Settings within the phone itself ? Live Facebook I think ??
H E L P ?

_ yes.. I already know how I will mix/compress it, so no other non-technical subjective comments are necessary
Thanks, Rick

PS:
if this comes together I will post the band's Facebook URL. A well-know NYC cover band w/ high-end guests,

Re: G2/3 to Android

If using a portable receiver, I would combine a standard locking mini TRS to XLR male cable available for Sennheiser transmitter outputs, with a standard XLR female to smartphone mini TRRS with headphone output jack cable.

Something like these two:

and

or this one without the headphone output:

Is there any difference in Android and iPhone TRRS jacks?

Of course if using a base station receiver with an XLR output you'd only need a regular XLR female to male and one of the latter cables.

If using a base station receiver and the XLR output is already being used, a 1/4-inch output cable and a DI box could be used to gain a second XLR output and possibly solve any grounding issues with its ground lift switch.

Re: G2/3 to Android

Thanks Jay, I found some Android wiring schematics here.
Android device external mic wiring |
I'll just start soldering and see which one works best. I want to keep it as light weight as possible for the operator. I'll use a G3 portable receiver with a belt clip and a 3 or 4 ft. cable going to the phone's 3.5mm TRRS i/o connection.
Seems strange the common ground is ring terminal 2 and not the usual barrel/sleeve.
If this doesn't work I'll have to make of get the XLR adapter.

Re: G2/3 to Android

I've just started testing Filmic Pro, it's video camera software for iOS devices. Among other things, it offers manual control of audio recording level (and manual WB, shutter, gain, aperture, etc). It will also switch between internal and external sources.

I think it's available for Android as well. Not what you're looking for - unless you want reference video with your audio recordings.

But, it opened my eyes to the possibilities of app software that fully controls what I'd thought to be automatic-only functions of mobile platforms.

Have you sourced audio recording software that gives you manual levels and some kind of metering?

Re: G2/3 to Android

Thanks, I'll recommend Filmic Pro to the.. 'shooter'. It's for live streaming on Facebook. I'm the band's FOH mixer and have my hands full mixing mains & monitors already. I suggested an off-the-board mix as I'm sure the smart phone's internal mic is a POS and the operator moves around the venue so the sound is inconsistent.
