For those of you, who need a tool to document their work without draging a lot of equipment around - if you are equipped with an iPhone (with a lightning connector) there is a great little robust mic on the market: Shure MV88 Mid-Side mic.
It works with the camera (in some kind of generic stereo mode) and with most recoriding apps including Shure Motiv app. But you get the most of it with the Shure app (free!) but you'll need iOs 11 for it to work properly (otherwise the mic goes in it's generic stereo mode).
If you can use the app fully, you can choose between different mic directivities, including a mono cardiod setting and a raw Mid-Side setting, which I find most useful if I want to work on the recording later in my computer.
Here's what it can (no EQ or compression or reverb or any other processing apart from dithering for mixdown to 16 bit):

and here with a bit of shimmer from the Plugin Alliance Black Box plugin:

The playing was done on Stenzel No1 (see here viewtopic.php?f=11&t=122476
) and recorded with the Shure MV88 to iPhone 6s plus. You can airdrop it directly to the computer; so the whole process is very easy and requires no further connectors or adopters and no physical copying of the raw recording.
In principle, if you just want to document something, you can da the basic editing even in the iOs Shure app (trimming, fades, volume, even EQ and compression).
Quite a handy tool IMHO
