Recording on iOS mic volume too low

How do I adjust my mic volume when recording from my iPhone 7 Plus? I'm recording the iPhone and my systems mic, but the mic volume recorded is way low compared to when I record my computer's video and I didn't change anything with the mic - not sure whats going on, any clues?

    Go to System Preferences and select Sound. Some devices allow for input volume control but others don't. For those that don't, you'd need to control the volume after the recording. One is USB Mic (no control) the other is my webcam audio (there's control).

    To further clarify when the iPhone is listed it behaves like my USB mic in that there's no level control

  • CraigS So I have to adjust the volume after the recording is done? Does that mean I'm not really recording my system mic even though I have it selected in the configuration? Thanks!

    Andre Flory If it's selected in ScreenFlow then it's being recorded. System Sound does have input level control for Internal Microphone.

  • I normally record my computer and mic sounds and those volumes are fine but when I recorded my iPhone and mic the mic volume is very very quiet. I tried increasing the volume on the video after the recording and it doesn't change (much) even going to 190%.

    Perhaps there's a system sound limit you're running into if the iPhone is impacting other audio. Please explain exactly what you are recording from the iPhone. The internal Mic has a separate level control in System Sound and you should turn that up before recording.

    Perhaps you should post screen shots of your System Sound settings.

  • Ok I got on to do what you suggest and send screen shots of stuff and now I'm having a new behavior. 1. My volumes seem to be fine now with one problem - I cannot hear my iPhone. When I start the recording my iPhone sounds stop coming out if it's speakers, but my recording now is perfect with the sound of the game and of my mic, but I cannot hear my iPhone which is very bad as I'm trying to record myself playing Minecraft: Pocket Edition and hearing the sound is quite important :) iTunes keeps opening up also (if I close it).

    Andre Flory You will not hear your iPhone audio while it's being captured. If you want to monitor your iPhone audio you must open ScreenFlow Recording monitor and set the Preview Volume. ScreenFlow will capture the Recording Monitor window so it's best to position it in a place you can crop out or on a second monitor.

  • Ok Thanks CraigS  I guess I don't have a problem then. I'm now wondering how I had things configured the first time as I was able to hear my iphone sound and record it's sound and my voice also at the same time - but my voice recorded volume was quite low.

    Andre Flory Perhaps that may have been the reason for the low volume (hearing the iPhone while the computer is trying to pull in the audio at the same time). Generally the iPhone speakers get muted and the full audio goes into the computer.

    Audio coming in on iPhone and Preview Volume turned up so you can monitor phone out of computer while recording.
