The silver Shure MOTIV MVI is a compact and portable single-channel USB audio interface that lets you stream and record a microphone or instrument to your Mac/Windows computer. It is well suited for podcasters, vloggers, singer-songwriters, and guitarists, or for people using a microphone when video-conferencing at home or on the go. The interface is also MFi-certified and can be used to capture sound to an iPhone or iPad (requires a Lightning cable available separately).
The MOTIV MVI features a discrete JFET Class-A buffered preamplifier input for high-quality tone and clarity. The combo XLR/1/4" jack allows you to plug either an XLR microphone or a guitar/bass/keyboard. When connected to a computer the interface also provides the phantom power required to operate condenser microphones.
Five DSP modes (Speech, Singing, Flat, Acoustic Instrument, Loud) automatically handle gain, EQ, compression, and limiting to ensure optimal sound quality without manual tweaking on your part. If you prefer to fine-tune your recording for a specific purpose, you can manually adjust the limiter, compressor, and five-band EQ to find your unique sound.
The touch panel on the front allows for fast and easy access to mic gain, headphone volume, DSP mode selection, and mute. There is also a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack to monitor your audio in real time.
The MOTIV MVI comes with cables for USB Type-A and USB Type-C connectivity.
