While we don't explicitly support this, you can do this. Just make sure the mix knob is turned to the middle so you can hear input and output. Make sure to use a powerbank bigger that is at least 2600mAh, 4000mAh or higher recommended in case you use phantom power, your mileage will vary depending on microphone(s) used.

In case you're interested, the i-Series can operate this way too using the mFI interface and an iPad with recordings.
