    Simple answer is No. You cant.

    Lengthy answer (not really that lengthy), is that yes, you can, but it requires additional hardware. I believe theres an app/hardware package you can buy so you can plug your iphone into your guitar or something? And apparently this works for recording mixes if you plug it into the mixers record out.

    EDIT: Here ya go

    Soundcloud mobile app for Iphone has a record function, but tbh never tried as I only have a usb external soundcard...

    Guess you could if you have a RCA's from the back of your mixer to aux I suppose and record through the headphone jack IF that soundcloud app records properly.

    Well it can, but like i say, extra software is required.

    The app part of the package above is free. Maybe see how you get on by just downloading the app? As far as i can see all the hardware is is a standard adapter.

    You might have some joy.

    But bare in mind the space available on the phone, you mention its an old iphone, so im assuming its not like 32gb or something. And a lot of apps record in wav, aiff etc, which are all huge files.
