Shure Releases Next Version of ShurePlus™ MOTIV™ Mobile Recording App

August, 30 2016 |

Niles, Ill. August 30, 2016—Shure announced today that a new version of its ShurePlus™ MOTIV™ Mobile Recording App—designed for use with the Company’s MOTIV Digital Condenser Microphones—is now available for download. Version 2.0 of this iOS App offers a suite of advanced new features, including an editing tool, improved user interface, and fluid sound metering for a more accurate, jitter-free experience. Additionally, version 2.0 offers access to a playback window, enabling users to review, assess, or simply listen to a recording of their choice.  

“We’re always listening to our users, and these latest updates are a direct result of their feedback, requests, and needs,” said Thomas Banks, Senior Product Management Specialist at Shure. “We understand that the ability to edit and play back a recording is paramount to achieving an optimal, high-quality audio file. With the upgraded navigation pane, users can now navigate through the App with ease. The extended capabilities of the 2.0 version—notably the ability to trim, spilt, and fade recordings—brings more value to the overall MOTIV experience, and encourages our team to continually seek out ways to improve its functionality.”

To further enhance the App’s current capabilities, version 2.0 touts an easy-to-use editing tool. The editor gives users the ability to trim and split tracks, incorporate user-defined fades, and place markers on the timeline of a recording to create points in time to return to, playback from, or to define split points. Shure also introduces a “flattened” interface with fewer menu selections and pull-down options so users can move through the app more quickly and efficiently. Additionally, improved metering delivers a more fluid transient response for an optimized and seamless viewing experience. The clip indicator now turns the entire metering bar red when clipping, making it easier for the user to identify and respond to the action.   

The App’s playback window creates an enhanced listening environment for critical review of a recording or casual listening. Playback controls include play, pause, fast forward, and rewind buttons. Users also have access to a looping feature for continued review of a track and the option to add artwork or imagery to the recording through the iOS Camera Roll.

The original ShurePlus MOTIV Mobile Recording App was designed for use with all MOTIV products. This free App is loaded with smart, intuitive features for high-quality digital recording and sharing through text, email, iTunes, AirDrop, and Dropbox. The App offers 24-bit/48 WAV recording for all MOTIV microphones and enables users to make real-time adjustments to selectable DSP preset modes for gain, equalization, and compression. It is also a convenient and reliable tool on its own for enhanced recording and now, editing.

Version 2.0 of ShurePlus MOTIV is available for download in the Apple App Store. For more information, please visit
