    Comments about Shure Motiv MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone:

    The mic is very good at singing-guitar combo. The voice comes out clear and balances both guitar and voice. The onlydrawback is the software when using an iPhone, you have to use a pull down menu. You can adjust the mic for compression and if you spend the time you get a nice sound.

      Comments about Shure Motiv MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone:

      At first, I was ready to put this back in the box and return it. It takes a bit of work and patience to understand how to get the best qulaity possible. In the end, I was happy with it and comparing it A/B to recordings with the built-in iPhone mic it was night and day. A couple of watch-outs to note which may frustrate you if you're like me and want it to work instantly out of the box: 1) the Shure app that comes with it does not recognize bluetooth headphones for realtime monitoring. You must plug-in regular phones into the iPhone jack to get that feature. It will record either way. 2) UNCHECK the Wind Reduction option in the app - this will cause some terrible side effects (like the bass warbling in and out). I thought the mic was broken until I shut this off. It may be good for vocal recording, but recording guitar this simply made it awful. After unchecking this it performed as expected. 3) There is an odd design flaw where the unit will block / obstruct the headphone jack if plugged in a certain way. This is a problem as this is the ONLY way that you can angle the mic at 90-degrees upwards toward the face of the phone. in other words, if you want to angle it up (vs. toward the back of the phone) and see what you're doing you can't plug in headphones at the same time.

      I highly recommend experimenting with the different settings for a bit in the app - this programs the mic so the things you choose will carry over to the mic's use in other apps (ie. the native Camera recording or Memos app in iOS). Overall a good mic, solid value and sound if you use your iPhone for self-recordings for social, YouTube,etc.

        Comments about Shure Motiv MV88 iOS Digital Stereo Condenser Microphone:

        I use this for recording my son in theater as well as recording commercials for my live high school football radio show. We are trying it soon for our podcast as well. I have found the mic to perfect for interviewing coaches and players. I have recorded my commercials on my qupac as well as the MV88 an used it for every one over the total digital board. I could email the file to myself and cut the audio so fast. I would say this is one of the most innovative products on the market.
