Digital large-diaphragm condenser microphone replaces field recorders with the ability to record audio on the go onto an iOS device. Features include 5 preloaded DSP settings, Lightning Connector compatibility, and iOS ShurePlus MOTIV app editing.
Go-anywhere, Record-anything Digital Mic
Record anywhere with a Shure MOTIV MV51. This sophisticated USB microphone provides you with all the basic benefits of a plug-and-play USB mic, but it has been developed specifically for iOS. Set your MV51 on the table, plug in your headphones, take out your acoustic guitar or fire up tracks in your favorite iOS DAW, and hit record — it’s that easy. There are five presets you can access instantly from the MV51’s touch panel, or you can dial in EQ, dynamics, and more from the free ShurePlus MOTIV app, which also lets you record in full 24-bit/48kHz. And if you want to lay down ideas in the studio before you forget them, you can transform the MV51’s handy kickstand into a mic stand adapter for perfect positioning.
Turn anywhere you are into your studio
Like the rest of the MOTIV line, the MV51 was designed with iOS in mind. However, this affordable USB microphone can do everything a basic USB mic can, allowing you to connect it to your favorite desktop DAW. Even if you have a full studio setup, just having this mic on your desktop can mean the difference between capturing a song idea and missing out while you set up. The MV51 is also a great companion for your laptop, especially if you need to track overdubs. Wherever you go, whatever you record, you’ll be glad you have a Shure MV51 with you.
iOS app lets you tap into powerful DSP
One of the coolest things about Shure’s MOTIV series hardware is the flexible DSP onboard. While some devices let you recall multiple presets from their control panels, the ShurePlus MOTIV iOS app lets you access the entire MOTIV DSP engine. From the ShurePlus MOTIV app, you can dial in your MV51’s gain structure, add compression and limiting, and fully adjust the frequency response via a graphic EQ. The ShurePlus MOTIV app also makes recording in iOS easy. The interface is simple yet effective, editing is remarkably fast and intuitive, you get full 24-bit/48kHz digital resolution, and compatibility with Dropbox and other export options streamline the rest of your creative process.
MOTIV Video iOS app records uncompressed audio for video
Available to all MOTIV users on iOS, the MOTIV Video app is your one-stop solution for premium video and audio capture. It features all the functionality of the MOTIV audio app, like gain control, EQ, and compression. On-screen audio metering helps you keep signal levels in the optimum range, and you can choose from WAV, AAC, or ALAC audio formats. And depending on your device, you can choose 720p, 1080p, or even 4k video resolutions.
The sound you need for any application
Whether you’re creating music, gathering news, podcasting, vlogging, conducting interviews, or applying your mobile device to any other recording task, your Shure MV51 delivers the top-quality sound you need. When you need the highest resolution audio you can get, turn to the dedicated ShurePlus MOTIV iOS app, where you’ll get access to full 24-bit/48kHz. Sweetwater iOS recording experts love that you can program your MV51’s DSP from the app and then take those settings into any other app, including your favorite video apps or iOS DAW. Lay down layers of music tracks in Cubasis, capture pristine audio for video in Pinnacle Pro, put together world-class podcasts in bossjock — it’s all at your fingertips with the Shure MOTIV MV51.
