Shure MV7 USB/XLR Dynamic Podcasting Microphone Overview

Get a professional podcast sound with audio interfaces, hard disk recorders, or direct to computers and mobile devices with the Shure MV7 Podcast Mic, styled here in black. This is a high-quality, broadcast-style dynamic microphone, one that has both a conventional XLR connection and a USB port.

The Shure MV7 fulfils the needs of anyone who demands broadcast-quality sound from their podcast microphone, no matter the setup: whether you work with an audio interface, or prefer to record directly into your computer over USB, this microphone will do the job. The mic offers a clear and present sound, extensive controls, rugged accessories, and seamless integration with the free ShurePlus MOTIV Desktop App for convenient effects right out of the gate.

Note:
Please be aware that as of right now, this product does not support iPad USB-C connectivity.

Legendary Broadcast Sound
The mic takes its design and sonic cues from the Shure SM7B, a classic used on countless podcasts and radio broadcasts. Use the mic in close proximity to your voice and you'll find it exhibits a clear, intelligible, and high-quality sound. Optimised frequency response for rich and natural vocal reproduction

Works with Your Analog or Digital Setup
Thanks to its multiple outputs, you can use this mic with nearly any podcasting setup. The mic works with your audio interface, field recorder, mixer, or computer (over USB Mini-B) as well as select Android and iOS devices.

Rugged Appointments for Sound and Use
Like the SM7B, the MV7 has a built-in pop filter to protect against plosives and p-pops, greatly simplifying your editing process. With its built-in ready-to-mount yoke, the mic offers a build quality that is rugged, with an all-metal construction for reliability in mission-critical circumstances.

Unidirectional Polar Pattern for the Untreated Room
The mic features a unidirectional cardioid polar pattern, which is the best natural defence against room noise: since the capsule mostly captures what's directly in front of it, you won't pick up as much room noise as you would with another polar pattern. Depending on your particular room, you may still need a little room treatment, or some noise-reduction software, to address issues such as your computer's hum or your air conditioner—but the chances of that are markedly lower with a cardioid polar pattern.

Integrated Controls & High-Quality USB Audio
On the USB side, the mic provides broadcast-quality specs and intuitive functionality. Capture audio at sample rates and resolutions up to 48 kHz / 24-bit, which is the standard for editing and mixing broadcast audio. Use the integrated touch-panel interface on the mic itself to control levels, headphone volumes, monitor mix, and mic-mute.

Built-In 3.5mm Headphone Monitoring with Mix Control
The mic offers a headphone jack for monitoring. Just plug a pair of headphones into the MV7's 3.5mm jack, and you'll be able to listen to your high-quality audio in all its glory. In addition to its touch-panel control surface, the mic gives you a blend knob, which comes in handy for recording music: you can use it to adjust the balance between your mic's pickup and any pre-recorded audio.

USB Connection Right Out of the Box
Two cables are included: a USB Mini Type-B to USB Type-A and a USB Mini Type-B to USB Type-C.

Included Software to Make Recording Easier
The free ShurePlus MOTIV Desktop Application will let you save your own presets, enable auto-level, add compression, EQ the signal, and more.
 
 

Purpose-built for producing polished multi-person podcasts anywhere you go, the Zoom PodTrak P4 is a cost-effective portable multitrack podcast recorder that lets you quickly record up to four mics, handle 2 echo-free remote call-ins simultaneously, trigger sound samples, and provide separate headphone feeds for all your guests, all at the same time and with refreshing simplicity.

From the intuitive, tactile controls to the plentiful battery life and powerful audio processing functions, the PodTrak P4 is well equipped to help you record or stream pristine audio for panel podcasts. Dynamic and condenser mics, customizable sound pads, call-ins via your smartphone or computer, and independent headphone outs; the PodTrak P4 can manage everything you need a podcast production station to do.

Extra touches including built-in limiters and low-cut filters for enhancing your tracks, an integrated mix-minus function to prevent echo and feedback for remote guests, and multiple powering methods make the PodTrak a truly powerful all-in-one solution for podcasting.

Four High-Gain Mic Inputs

Whether you rely on announcer-style dynamic microphones such as the Zoom ZDM-1 (available separately) or prefer the sheen of crisp condenser mics, the PodTrak P4's four mic preamps are up to the task. Each features a balanced XLR input jack, selectable +48V phantom power, and up to 70 dB of gain, plenty of boost to ensure optimal recording levels with all kinds of mics, such as the venerable Shure SM7B.

Headphone Mixes for You and Your Guests

Outfitted with four 3.5mm stereo headphone outputs, the PodTrak P4 can provide you and your guests with independent headphone mixes, each with its own level control above the corresponding headphone jack. No matter the scenario—an exclusive interview or a raucous panel podcast, everyone will be able to clearly hear what's going on.

Echo-Free Remote Call-Ins

Knowing how frequently podcasters collaborate with remote guests, Zoom integrated two ways to accommodate call-ins—plug your smartphone directly into the 3.5mm TRRS phone port, connect a computer via USB to pipe in the audio from your conferencing software of choice, or do both at the same time to feature two remote guests.

Whether you use TRRS, USB, or both, the PodTrak P4 automatically prevents echo and feedback with its built-in mix-minus feature; your remote guests will never be distracted by hearing their own voice echo back to them.

Supports BTA-2 for Wireless Remote Guests

If you prefer to go wire-free for call-ins, connect the Zoom BTA-2 Bluetooth receiver (available separately) to the PodTrak P4 and use your smartphone to wirelessly pipe in your call audio via Bluetooth.

Assignable Sound Pads with Preset Sounds

The PodTrack P4 is equipped with four sound pads next to the LCD screen, perfect for elevating your podcast production quality with music, jingles, ads, sound effects, or pre-recorded interviews triggered at the push of a button. Use the 11 preset sounds or load your own samples for even more versatility. Plus, a dedicated knob allows easy adjustment of the sound pad output volume.

Instant Access to Gain and Mute for Each Input

Each mic input on the PodTrak P4 has its own dedicated gain control knob. There's no track selection or button pressing required to optimize your recording levels; just turn the dials (clearly labeled from 0 to 10) anytime you need to adjust the gain. Additionally, a mute button is provided for every input, so you can quickly mute/unmute guests without having to navigate through menus.

Record up to 10 Tracks Simultaneously

With the PodTrak P4, you can simultaneously record up to 10 tracks to an SD card—four tracks from the input channels, four tracks from the sound pads, and two tracks from the overall stereo mix.

SD Card Recording and Audio Interface Functionality

Designed for truly convenient portability, the PodTrack P4 can record directly to an SDHC card (up to 32GB capacity) or an SDXC card (up to 512GB capacity). A 4GB card will yield over three hours of 16-bit / 44.1 kHz 4-channel recording time using the BWF-compliant WAV format for uncompressed audio quality and industry-standard file compatibility. Note that media cards are available separately, and larger capacity cards may increase startup times.

Alternatively, use the PodTrak P4 as a 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface (at 16-bit / 44.1 kHz) with your Mac/Windows computer or iOS/Android mobile device (separately available Apple Camera Connection Kit is required for use with iOS devices).

Powered via AA Batteries, AC Adapter, or USB

Power the PodTrak P4 via two AA batteries, plug it into a wall outlet with an AD-17 AC adapter (available separately), or use an external USB battery. Alkaline batteries can keep the P4 running for up to four hours of continuous recording. When using the P4 in the stereo USB audio interface mode, USB bus powering is also possible.

Signal Processing Adds Sonic Polish

The PodTrak P4's onboard effects allow you to add polish to your recordings without resorting to postproduction processing on a computer. Built-in limiters compensate for fluctuations in input level, while low-cut filters help eliminate wind noise, blowing, and other kinds of low-frequency rumble.
