In today’s world everyone is constantly on their phone. This can be partially credited to the rise of social media and influencers. No matter where you go, you will undoubtedly see people taking pictures of their food or filming themselves, but what about the audio? There is nothing worse than watching a YouTube video that has shaky video and poor audio. It’s like, hey man it’s cool that you are showing me how to make a cast iron skillet pizza, but can you use a tripod and get a better sounding microphone? If you’re going to do something, do it right. Well it seems that the audiovisual gods have answered our prayers. Thankfully, the good people at Shure offer the MV88+ Video Kit, which makes recording like a pro as easy as 1-2-3.
The MV88+ Video Kit has all you need to capture great content right out of the box! Whether you are making music videos, blogging or creating content for your YouTube channel, the MV88+ Video Kit will be your best friend. This is a premium digital stereo condenser microphone. As you can hear in the video, there are several polar patterns that will allow you to choose the best audio option.
There are two free download apps, MOTIV Audio and MOTIV Video. Within the MOTIV Audio App you can change polar patterns, adjust input gain, EQ and compression and then record to your phone. You can also see and adjust the input gain using the MOTIV Video App. Additionally, you can change video resolution, frames per second and see available storage space on your phone.
This mobile recording rig directly connects to any Apple device via Lightning cable and includes a Manfrotto PIXI mini tripod that allows for steady and stable video. Long gone are the days of shaky videos with terrible audio. Viva Shure! This video kit has opened the door for home videographers and is blurring the lines between amateurs and professionals.
Lastly, I think one thing we can all agree on is that convenience is the name of the game and the MV88+ Video Kit could not be more easy to use. The whole kit rolls into a portable package that will easily fit in any backpack or briefcase making on-the-go recording a breeze. Having the ability to shoot great video with pristine audio in the palm of your hand sounds pretty great to me!
