SHURE MV7 WORKAROUND FOR iOS

There are a few issues using the MV-7 with iOS devices. The only way to currently have MOTIV app control 100% functional is by purchase of the very short official Shure AMV-LTG Cable. You can use the included standard USB cable with a Camera Kit, but the MV7 will be controllable via the app. Fortunately the solution is fairly simple. NOTE: not every aftermarket Micro USB cable will provide sufficient power for the MV-7 from an iOS device.

 

FIRST:

Connect your MV-7 to your desktop or notebook.

SECOND:

Load the ShurePlus MOTIV app.

THIRD:

Adjust the MV-7 to your desired settings for auto, or compression, limiter, and EQ.

FOURTH:

Exit the app and unplug the MV-7 (eject if necessary)

Your MV-7 will now retain these settings until connected to the ShurePlus MOTIV on MAC or PC again. When using the Shure iOS app you get an error message, ignore it. The iOS app will still be able to record audio from the MV-7.
