Shure MV7 BK is is a dynamic microphone with both USB and XLR outputs for use with computers and professional interfaces.
inspired by the legendary SM7B, this MV7 can be a simple (yet sophicsticated) USB microphone for voiceover and podcast use. Connect via USB and explore additional set-up features and Auto Level Mode within the ShurePlus™ MOTIV app, to control your vocal tone, and distance from the microphone. With Auto Level Mode, you can let the microphone do the work for you.
Once recording, use the built-in 3.5mm headphone jack to monitor your sound and adjust mic gain, headphone volume, monitor mix and more using the built-in touch panel.
For greater flexibility than you’d get with “just” a great USB microphone, MV7 also has an XLR output. With so many podcast-ready console and interface solutions around now (all with XLR inputs), MV7 offers the trusted Shure voiceover sound with a flexible choice of connection. Use the USB for you-and-the-laptop situations, or grab an XLR cable and plug into the console for the round-the-table podcast.
Also available in silver – MV7S
XLR and USB Hybrid Microphone
Choose to connect your MV7 by XLR or USB, depending on your set up. When connecting via USB, you have access to the ShurePlus™ MOTIV app, which has a variety of additional controls such as Mic Gain, Mic Mute, EQ, Monitor Mix, Limiter and Compressor that can be adjusted. Alternatively, connect your MV7 via XLR to an audio interface if you are working with a professional recording set-up.
Voice Isolation Technology
The MV7’s impressive combination of cartridge, pick-up pattern and shock mount brings your voice to the forefront of the recording and prevents any unwanted background or room noise from interrupting your sound.
App control from integration with ShurePlus™ MOTIV apps (desktop and mobile)
Download the free ShurePlus™ MOTIV app(s) and configure the microphone to perform best for your chosen application. Select Auto Level Mode if you want a ‘set it and forget it’ microphone, or Manual Mode if you wish to get more hands on with features such as Mic Gain, Mic Mute, EQ, Monitor Mix, Limiter and Compressor. You can even save your favourite presets for another day.
Auto Level Mode
Users that connect via USB will have access to Auto Level Mode, offering them adjustments between Tone and Mic Position. Once enabled, this mode will allow the microphone to constantly adjust your level on the fly to ensure a consistent output of your recording or stream. Save valuable editing time in post-production and keep your level consistent throughout; it’s like having a virtual engineer by your side.
Built-in touch panel
If you’re on the go or want a slight adjustment just before you’re set to record, the on-board touch panel allows you to quickly slide and adjust microphone gain, headphone volume, monitor mix as well as muting the microphone, locking the touch panel and even exiting Auto Level Mode to revert to Manual Mode.
Built-in Headphone Monitoring
Ensure that you are getting perfect audio at all times with the direct headphone monitoring output. Simply connect your favoured headphones or earphones via the 3.5mm connector and set your desired monitor mix between microphone and device.
Customisable Sound Signature
Choose your sound and pick your tone from either ‘dark’, ‘natural’ or ‘bright’ within the ShurePlus™ MOTIV app.
Optimised Mic Position Presets
Whether you’re a podcaster that likes to get up close and personal with the microphone, or a streamer that likes a bit more breathing space, there is a setting to suit your needs. Choose between ‘near’ and ‘far’ mode within the ShurePlus™ MOTIV app, to optimise the MV7’s output depending on your preferred mic position.
