The Shure MOTIV MV88+ Smartphone Mic Video Kit comes with a professional-quality condenser microphone that plugs directly into your mobile device. It is powered through micro-usb and comes with both a micro-usb to usb-C cable and a micro-usb to Lightning cable. While designed for use with smartphones, you can certainly use this mic setup with your laptop using a micro-usb to standard usb A cable (not included). This is a plug-and-play device and you won't need any special drivers to use this with most Macs or PCs. However, to change any of the versatile settings (including polarity pattern) of this mic, you will need to set them using the Shure Motiv app. With the exception of gain, you cannot change any of the mic's internal settings on a computer.
This kit provides you not only with a smartphone-ready microphone but also with a Manfrotto PIXI desktop tripod, a shoemount mic clip, phone holder, and windscreen. The mid/side configuration of this mic is a popular choice for broadcast, as it is mono-capable and offers an adjustable stereo image, making it able to capture a variety of sources. For example, a very wide stereo image is a good choice for an orchestra. A narrower one is better for a speech, as it will reject outside ambient sounds. For novices, there are preset modes for speech, singing, performances, and more. For more experienced users, you can choose Raw Mid/Side recording to capture a stereo image that can be adjusted in your digital audio workstation. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack on this mic for monitoring and you can control the monitoring mix via the app as well.
While full of advanced settings, such as control over the limiter and compressor, this mic is also very accessible to beginners when used alongside the free ShurePlus Motiv audio/video apps. It is the ideal highfidelity sound solution for mobile users shooting vlogs, recording podcasts, giving interviews, and more.
