I have Capture installed on my iPad Pro (IOS 11) and have connected an external, lightning microphone, but it does not recognize it.

Does Capture have support for external Microphones?  I would like better audio quality while I screen record my iPad Pro.

Hey Pat,

Good question. Are you toggling the microphone on after performing a 3D Touch to Access the Screen Recorder settings? (You need to perform the 3D Touch every time, select TechSmith Capture, make sure the Microphone is turned on, then press start broadcast).
We've tested with the microphone built into Apple's lighting headphones and we are capturing that audio when the microphone button is toggled on.
Would appreciate knowing what model of microphone you are using.
