Shure MVi connects professional XLR mics with USB or Lightning devices

Connect your professional XLR podcasting mic to a computer or iOS device with Shure's new MVi from their Motiv product line!

The MVi is dsigned for XLR professional microphones or 1/4″-connected instruments. It offers a 3.5 mm headphone out for latency-free monitoring. But the real beauty is in the digital connection. The Shure MVi can connect directly to any PC via USB or to any modern iOS device via MFi-certified Lightning!

mvi_v2The XLR/1/4″ combo jack can provide full phantom power when connected via USB, and up to 12 volts of phantom power when connected via Lightning to an iOS device.

The Shure MVi provides several DSP modes with built in compression and equalization: flat (unprocessed), speech, singing, accoustic instrument (guitars, strings, piano, etc.), and loud (good for bands).

The front capacitive-touch panel offers easy and noiseless switching between DSP modes, mic mute, and gain adjustment, and headphone output levels.

Shure includes a high-quality, 24-bit preamp (I have not yet thoroughly tested the noise floor).

This is an easy, flexible, and highly portable way to connect your high-quality studio microphone with almost whatever mobile device you have!

The Shure MVi with USB will be $99 and the Shure MVi with USB and Lightning will be $129, both available in summer, 2015.
