Monday, July 04, 2016

If you are looking for a compact condenser microphone to improve on the internal microphone of your iMac or for iPad's Karaoke app, check out the SHURE MV5 Digital Condenser Microphone!
SHURE's MV5 connects directly to any iOS device without the need of any adapters and has three digital signal processing (DSP) modes that allows you to set the equalization to Instrumental, Flat, or Vocal, which is great if you're looking for a mic for recording vocals.

The LED indicator feature for the DSP modes comes quite handy as it lets you know which DSP mode you are recording,

SHURE's MV5 has a quarter inch thread that allows you to fit the MV5 to a camera tripod, should you not want to use the included tabletop mic stand.

The included mic stand has a soft rubber bottom to prevent stomping noises from being picked up by the mic. Both the tabletop stand and MV5 are made of anodized aluminum, making them very lightweight. The MV5 mic measures around 2.5 inches (6 cm) tall and around 5 inches (13 cm) when mounted onto the tabletop stand.

You can use the MV5 while recording video and the microphone comes with its own recording editing software, though you can also use the GarageBand for Mac. The mic also has internal filtering so no need for a pop filter.
