Read The Clubhouse App Terms of Service Before Recording Any Rooms!
Many people have asked me to share how I connected my Rodecaster Pro to the Clubhouse App which allows me to send high-quality microphone audio, audio clips/jingles to the Clubhouse app and that also allows me to record the entire Clubhouse room to my Rodecaster Pro.
I will briefly describe how I do this. HOWEVER, I think it is essential that you read the terms of service, from the Clubhouse App, to make your own interpretation as to whether or not you are able to record Clubhouse rooms, and if so, under what circumstance.
In fact, I highly advise AGAINST recording Clubhouse rooms. Personally, I feel that it changes the "dynamics" of the conversation in the room once people have been made aware that a room is being recorded.
With that said, arguments could be made where one might want to occasionally record a room for a specific reason. I simply suggest that you always read the most updated version of the Terms of Service of the Clubhouse App before ever recording a room.
A Rodecaster Pro: (Affiliate Link Here)
Note: I love my Rodecaster Pro. I actually own three of them.
I've been podcasting since 2005, have produced 40 different podcasts and over 5,500 of my own podcast episodes. I have also trained more than 40,000 people how to podcast, and this is, hands down, the best piece of podcasting equipment that I've ever owned.
(It should go without saying, but you would also want to have a microphone, some type of mic stand, a mic cable and a set of headphones to hook up to the Rodecaster Pro)
Rode SC9 3.5mm TRRS to TRRS Cable (4.9'): (CLICK THIS LINK)
Note: While you can use any TRRS to TRRS Cable from any cheaper brand, It is ESSENTIAL that you get a cable that as a 3.5mm TRRS plug on both ends. This means that you MUST HAVE THREE RINGS on the plug at each end of the cable. (See Image)
Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter: (CLICK THIS LINK)
Note: It is essential that you buy the OFFICIAL APPLE product. There are many knock off products that only allow for audio out but do not have the ability to send audio back into Clubhouse App.
Simply plug one end of the 3.5mm cable into the Smartphone Jack on the back of the Rodecaster Pro. Plug the other end of that cable into the Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Dongle. Plug the Apple Dongle into your phone. (SEE PHOTO)
To hear the audio from Clubhouse, you'll need to turn up the "Smartphone Slider" on the Rodecaster Pro. It has the same Smartphone icon as shown above the smartphone plug on the back of the unit.
MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS FULLY CHARGED FIRST
There is no way to charge your phone at the same time with this setup. There are dongles out there that have both an additional lightning port and also a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, all that I have tried are not TRRS compatible (this means you can send no microphone audio from the Rodecaster to the Clubhouse App).
For more than a decade, I grew a massive online business branded "Podcast Answer Man" where I trained more than 40,000 people how to successfully launch a podcast.
I shut down 100% of my podcast coaching/consulting business at the end of 2017 and transitioned fully to the brand "Mindset Answer Man." You can learn more about what I do by reading my Work With Me Page or seeing the video listed below on this page.
I created this page as a favor to several hundred people from my community that had asked me how I was connecting my Rodecaster Pro to the Clubhouse app.
I simply ask that if you have an technical support related questions related to this setup or any other type of audio equipment setup, that you use one of the two following resources:
1) Free Technical Support:
By far, the best FREE resource for technical support regarding audio setups would be from other experienced podcasters. There are a large number of communities that are extremely valuable in this area. The one that comes to the top fo my mind would be the PODCAST MOVEMENT COMMUNITY FOR PODCASTERS on Facebook (Click Here). Once you are a member of that community, I believe that you'll find an abundance of support for all your technical needs.
2) Just Want To Hire A Professional?:
I get it. You have a "quick question" and you're ready to pay a pro to solve your issue fast. I recommend my great friend, Jodey Smith from JodeySmith.com. Simple email [email protected] and tell him that Cliff sent you.
That's it.... I hope this was helpful. I'm @CliffEOTC on Clubhouse.

My name is Cliff Ravenscraft and I have a question for you...
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like, today, if you could go back and spend a few days with yourself from 20 years ago?...
…If you could hop in into a time-travel machine, dial back the clock 20 years, and sit down to chat with your younger self?
…Imagine the knowledge, wisdom, and experience you would share with that younger version of you.
…Imagine knowing exactly how to avoid all the painful experiences and …
Imagine if the self-doubt, anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness – and all other barriers keeping you from getting what you really want out of life were never an issue.

I thought I would listen in while doing something else but that failed - I ended up glued to what you were saying. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and plan to watch again either today or tomorrow and take detailed notes. Something has clearly resonated here. - Michael McClure
I have just finished the hour long video! and firstly normally I turn content like this off after a bit because, well, I am doing it while I work! - Your message stopped me.
