Using the Shure MOTIV App with the MV88+ microphone
The Shure MOTIV app controls microphone settings to optimize performance for specific uses. The device stores
the most recently used settings for quick setup each time you record.

Aiming the Microphone
The following suggestions are for typical use cases. Keep in mind that there are many effective ways to record a
source. Experiment with horizontal or landscape orientation, microphone placement and settings to find what
works best for you.
Portrait (Vertical)
Position your recording device so you can monitor the recording. Aim the front of the microphone toward the
source, with left and right sides facing the appropriate directions.
Landscape (Horizontal)
Aim the front of the microphone toward the source. Ensure that the left and right sides of the microphone barrel
are facing the appropriate sides.

Video Interview
• To record audio from on-camera audio only, select the CARDIOID polar pattern and point the microphone to­
ward your subject.
5/16
Shure Incorporated
• To capture the voices of both the on-camera subject and the off-camera interviewer, select the MONO ­
BIDIRECTIONAL polar pattern in the app. Position the microphone with the left and right sides facing each per­
son.
Self-Recording (Video Streaming)
Set the device on a flat surface and angle the microphone toward your mouth. Select the MONO CARDIOID preset
in the Shure MOTIV app to reduce ambient noise.

① Header Tap Close to return to the record window. Toggle between Locked and Unlocked options to prevent ac­
cidental bumps or finger taps from changing your sound and to lock in your mic gain, presets and advanced set­
tings. When mic settings are Locked, the setting screen is grayed out. The line above the input meter displays the
connected microphone and indicates which effects are in use and recording status.
② Input Meter Displays the strength of the input signal and whether that signal is mono or stereo. The loudest
peaks should reach within the target range (indicated by the shaded region).
③ Microphone Gain/Monitor Mix Adjust the mic gain slider to match the volume of the sound source. Levels are
in the target range when they peak in the shaded region of the input meter. Tap the oval button to access monitor
mix settings. See the monitor mix section for information on making monitoring adjustments.
④ Preset Modes Select a mode to set stereo width, equalization, and compression for specific applications. Refer
to the "Preset Modes" topic for more details.
⑤ Polar Pattern Selection Swipe to choose between Stereo, Mono Cardioid, Mono Bidirectional or Raw Mid-Side
pick-up patterns. Then adjust the width of the stereo microphone pickup area.
Tip: Consider the location of the microphone and the size of the sound source when adjusting the width. For ex­
ample, a large orchestra or ensemble recording will benefit from a wide stereo image to achieve increased separa­
tion between instruments. Other applications, such as speech, benefit from a narrow width for improved clarity with
rejection of ambient (room) sound.
⑥ Advanced Features Fine tune your audio recording with limiter and compressor controls, high pass filter, leftright swap, and equalization settings. Your settings will be retained in the microphone. See "Wind Noise Reduc­
tion" and "Left-Right Channel Swap" for more details on these topics.
• Limiter: Use the Limiter to control volume peaks by setting an input threshold.
• Compressor: Use the Compressor when your sound source is very dynamic. The compressor will narrow the
dynamic range; quiet signals are boosted and loud signals are lowered. There are light and heavy compression
options available.
• Equalizer: Use the Equalizer to boost or cut bands of frequencies to improve sound clarity. The EQ icon in the
Mic Setup screen displays user-selected equalization.
Preset Modes
Five selectable modes optimize settings for gain, stereo width, equalization, and compression. Set the microphone
level and try the modes to find which sounds best. Preset modes can affect the strength of the input signal, so ad­
just the microphone level as needed after changing presets.

Monitor Mix Blend
Tap the Monitor Mix button to view monitoring controls.
Use the monitor mix slider to determine how much of each input you hear. For best results, start monitoring at the
midpoint and adjust.
• Move the slider towards the microphone icon (MIC) to hear more of the currently recorded audio.
• Move the slider towards the device icon (PLAYBACK) to hear more of the previously recorded audio.
Left-Right Channel Swap
For stereo recordings, use Left - Right Swap to flip the left and right audio channels to match the stereo image to
the video. For example, when using video to record yourself.
Tip: Use the L and R indicators on the microphone barrel. This way you can set Left - Right Swap before you start
to record.
Recording Tips
Turn Off Notifications
When you open the MOTIV app, a message prompts you to enable airplane mode and do not disturb mode. It's
important to do this to avoid recording interference from phone calls, messages, and various notifications which
can add static to your recordings.
Note: Enable airplane mode and then turn Wi-Fi back on to add geolocation information to your audio file.

Adjust your Sample Rate
Select a lower sample rate when it is useful to have a smaller file, for example, when recording speech or a pod­
cast for download. Select a higher sample rate for music and dynamic recordings.
Record in Mono
Record in mono to increase your available record time or when recording a single source, like vocals, that would
benefit from less ambient noise. Select the Mono Cardioid or Mono Bidirectional polar pattern and audio from all
capsules are summed to a single channel. The input meter will indicate mono recording by displaying the top half
of the waveform. MOTIV supports third-party microphones with mono recording.
Record in Stereo
Rotate the MV88+ barrel in the mic clip to accommodate portrait or landscape recording. L and R are labeled to
show stereo orientation of the microphone. The stereo image is accurate if the Shure logo is facing upward.
Capture the Complete Performance
To ensure that you capture the entire sound source, start your recording before the performance starts and edit the
recording later to trim any silence.
Note: If your microphone accidentally becomes disconnected during recording, MOTIV will automatically stop the
recording. The save file dialog will appear, prompting you to name and save your audio.
Record with Confidence with Automatic Save
If your microphone accidentally becomes disconnected during recording, MOTIV will automatically stop the record­
ing. The save file dialog will appear, prompting you to name and save your audio.
Sharing MOTIV Recordings
Videos created by the MOTIV Video app can be shared from the MOTIV camera roll folder in your recording de­
vice.
Troubleshooting
Issue
Solution
Microphone is plugged in,
but the volume meter does
not register a signal.
Edit the privacy setting for your recording device under SETTINGS > PRIVACY
> MICROPHONE to give the app permission to use the microphone.

Issue
Solution
Microphone is plugged in,
but not detected.
Unplug and reconnect the cable connectors so that the app recognizes the mi­
crophone. You'll know that the connection is secure when you see the micro­
phone name visible in the status bar.
You hear no audio despite
LEDs and the volume meter
responding as if audio is
present.
Check the Monitor Mix blend to ensure that audio is passing and you can moni­
tor playback. Move the Monitor Mix slider to the center to hear audio that is be­
ing currently recorded and previously recorded audio.
Audio sounds bad or dis­
tant.
To ensure that you are receiving audio from the attached microphone and not a
built­in microphone; unplug and reconnect the mic. You'll know that the connec­
tion is secure when you see the microphone name visible in the status bar.
Audio is distorted
Use the audio meter to ensure that volume peaks are within the target range
(the gray area). If the level reaches the red peak indicator of the input meter,
turn the gain down.
Left/right stereo channels
do not match video
Depending on the orientation of the recording device, it may be necessary to en­
gage the Left-Right swap in MOTIV settings. If the audio has already been
recorded, you can switch the left and right channels in most audio editing soft­
ware.
Note: It may be useful to reset the app to restore functionality. Perform a hard reset by unplugging and re-plugging
the microphone.
