Using the ShurePlus MOTIV App with the MV88 microphone
The MOTIV app controls microphone settings to optimize performance for specific uses. The MV88 stores the pre­
viously used settings for quick setup each time you record.
Aiming the Microphone
This section suggests placement for typical use cases. Keep in mind that there are many effective ways to record
a given source. Experiment with horizontal or landscape orientation, microphone placement and settings to find
what works best.
Tip: To ensure that left and right sides are facing the appropriate directions, check to see if the Shure name is
clearly visible on the top of the microphone. If the name is not visible, turn the barrel 90°.
Portrait (Vertical)
Aim the front of the microphone toward the source. The microphone can be mounted in either orientation of the
MV88 with the Lightning connector, so ensure that the left and right sides are facing the appropriate directions.
4/15
Shure Incorporated
Landscape (Horizontal)
Aim the front of the microphone toward the source. The microphone can be connected in either orientation with the
Lightning connector, so ensure that the left and right sides of the MV88 are facing the appropriate directions.
Video Interview
To capture the voices of both the subject (on-camera) and the interviewer (off-camera), select the MONO
BIDIRECTIONAL preset in the ShurePlus MOTIV app. Position the microphone with the left and right sides facing
each person.
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 ShurePlus MOTIV app to reduce ambient noise.

Connecting Headphones with Inline Mics
Headphone Monitor Adapting Cable
Use the included headphone monitor adapting cable for the following reasons:
• You require a slimmer connection to the headphone input on your recording device. The cable accommodates
headphones and earphones with larger connectors.
• You want to disable the inline microphone on your headphones. The cable ensures that the recorded sound
comes solely from the MV88 and not the headphone inline microphone.

⑥ Polar Pattern Selec­
tion
Swipe to choose between Stereo, Mono Cardioid, Mono Bidirectional or Raw MidSide pick-up patterns. Then adjust the stereo width of the pickup area.
Tip: Consider the location of the microphone and the size of the sound source
when adjusting the width. For example, a large orchestra or ensemble recording
will benefit from a wide stereo image to achieve increased separation between in­
struments. Other applications, such as speech, benefit from a narrow width for im­
proved clarity with rejection of ambient (room) sound.
⑦ Advanced Features
Select a preset mode, then fine tune your audio recording with advanced controls
to dial in your sound. Your settings will be retained in the microphone. See "Wind
Noise Reduction" 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 avail­
able.
• 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 to match your
recording needs. Set the microphone level and try the modes to find which sounds best. Then adjust level if need­
ed.

Application
Characteristics
Suited for acoustic in­
struments and quiet
music applications
Medium stereo width with transparent compression to smooth out volume
spikes and bring out quiet passages. The equalizer setting emphasizes
detail and an overall natural sound.
Use to record bands
and louder sources
Wide stereo to increase separation between sources. Equalization further
improves definition by reducing frequencies that can make the instrumen­
tation sound crowded.
Acoustic

Wind Noise Reduction
Wind Noise Reduction engages a low-frequency cutoff filter that reduces rumble caused by environmental noise.
Use the included foam windscreen in combination with wind reduction to counteract rumble and plosives (bursts of
air hitting the microphone).
To further reduce wind noise, use the optional Rycote™ Windjammer, which fits over the included foam wind­
screen.
Left-Right Channel Swap
When recording in stereo, this feature flips the left and right audio channels to correctly match the stereo image to
the video. This may be necessary for certain positions where the microphone is reversed, for example, when using
the MV88 and iOS device to video yourself.
Tip: look at the L and R indicators on the microphone barrel to determine if the swap is necessary. This way you
can set LR 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
The MV88 barrel pivots forward on a hinge and rotates 45 degrees to accommodate portrait or landscape record­
ing. 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
MV88 is plugged in, but the
volume meter does not reg­
ister a signal.
Edit the privacy setting for your recording device under SETTINGS > PRIVACY
> MICROPHONE to give the ShurePlus MOTIV app permission to use the micro­
phone.
MV88 is plugged in, but the
microphone is not detected.
Unplug and re­seat the microphone when the name of the microphone is not vis­
ible in the status bar.
LED light on MV88 is not
visible
The LED is located at the base of the MV88. Because the Lightning connector
allows you to insert the microphone in either orientation it is possible that the de­
vice is obscuring the LED. Remove the microphone, flip, and re-insert to check
microphone status.
Audio sounds bad or dis­
tant.
To ensure that you are receiving audio from the MV88 and not a built­in micro­
phone, unplug and reseat the MV88. The top left corner of the screen will identi­
fy the Shure MV88 when the microphone is correctly in place.
Audio quality changes when
a headset is plugged in
Headsets with inline microphones can override the MV88 as the audio device.
Use the included headphone monitor adapting cable to disable interference from
other microphones. Make sure that you plug in your headset first and your MV88
last.
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.
