Shure Introduces the MV88+ Video Kit

Shure has debuted a premium digital stereo condenser microphone, the MV88+, designed to provide high-quality audio for a variety of applications.

The MV88+ Video Kit, priced at $249.00, is a mobile professional recording rig built to Shure’s military-grade specifications. The package includes a stereo microphone with various pickup patterns, adjustable from a smartphone app for the iOS and Android formats. Users can control stereo width, work as a mono cardioid, use a mono bidirectional or set it to raw mid-side.

The mic can be set up quickly for speech, singing, flat, acoustic instruments and loud sources. The app also includes a limiter, compressor with multiple strength settings, a high pass filter for 75 and 150 Hz, a left- and right-channel swap and a five-band equalizer.

There is a second app for videographers, the MOTIV Video, which adds video recording to the sound setup. Many settings can be chosen, guided by the phone’s capabilities.

Physically, the MV88+ is small and lightweight. It comes with a shoe-mount clip, a smartphone holder, a Manfrotto PIXI Mini Tripod and USB-C and Lightning cables. This makes it easy to work with the phone and mic as a single unit.

Because many phones no longer have a dedicated headphone/mic jack, the MV88+ makes sure users can still monitor audio by including its own headphone jack, as well as the ability to control the monitoring mode.
