Works wonderful for my iPhone...high quality clean recording...then I plugged it into my windows laptop and it works amazing!!! I was surprised because I have a quad core processor (i3) (relatively new PC) but not the usual i5’s simple and rugged...I have gotten fantastic results from it...this thing really makes your iPhone a pocket studio-and now I can use it with my PC! Great. The sound is very flat however using the shure MOTIV app-I suggest using KORG Gadget or GarageBand to adjust the sound if your not mixing an amp or lining out from one...but this captures my mic’d amp and direct out from my Laney acoustic amp brilliantly
