The lofty legend of the Shure SM7B microphone has been reincarnated for the digital age of podcasting, livestreaming, gamecasting, and home recording in the form of the new Shure MV7 (available in a traditional black hue or a striking silver finish), featuring XLR and digital USB outputs, as well as embedded tech for instantly polished sonic performance that’s perfect for one- or multi-person podcasts. Drawing from decades of experience in broadcast production, studio environments, and mobile recording, Shure engineered the MV7 to surmount the challenges of working in suboptimal conditions and deliver a powerfully clear and impactful vocal presence, liberated from the burden of background noise. Shure MV7 Podcast Microphone Black and Silver Though the MV7’s exterior shares an instantly recognizable shape with the SM7B—the profile seen in countless radio stations, recording studios, and podcasting rigs—it’s what lies beneath the visible layer that changes everything. Far from your typical dynamic transducer, the MV7 features voice-isolation technology to push extraneous room noise into the background and pull out the special sound of your unique voice simultaneously, yielding strong, professional vocals ready for the world to hear. Gone are the tedious troubles of having to adjust recording levels manually and fiddle with compressor settings; the auto-level mode of the MV7 automatically manages gain and compression to make the capture of your voice stable and consistently intelligible with no manipulation required from you. Another massive advantage afforded to you by the MV7 is its ability to integrate seamlessly with analog and digital recording equipment. Outfitted with XLR and USB outputs, the MV7 is ideal for connecting directly to a USB port on your device for easy solo podcasts, or it can slide right into a panel podcast setup by plugging into the XLR input of an existing audio interface, outboard mic preamp, or external mixer. It can even do both at the same time to accommodate concurrent livestreaming and recording to different platforms. Like the SM7B, the MV7 utilizes a built-in mount to allow smooth positioning and secure attachment to a mic stand, boom arm, or desktop stand. Unlike the SM7B, it comes with cables for USB Type-C and USB Type-A connectivity. For additional convenience and customization, the MV7 supports configuration via the ShurePlus MOTIV app for iOS and Android mobile devices. If you’re unsure of how you’ll attain a competitive edge in your podcasts, livestreams, gamecasts, and vocal recordings, grab a Shure MV7, plug it in, and let it do the work for you.

You need to record high-quality podcasts with multiple people in mission-critical scenarios, so you need a streamlined, portable device to handle multiple people and remote guests all in one shot. Does this sound like you? Then you need to check out Zoom’s PodTrak P8, a dedicated podcasting machine that can handle all of your professional podcasting needs. Zoom PodTrak P8 Portable Multitrack Podcast Recorder Recently, Zoom released the P4, making high-quality podcast recording easier than ever before. The P8 offers all the functionality and ease of use of the P4, but expands the setup for ambitious podcasters in several key ways. First, it can accommodate more people face-to-face, giving you six high-gain mic inputs that can easily accommodate dynamic mics (like the venerated Shure SM7B) and condenser mics. With six controllable headphone outputs, the unit ensures all the people on the panel can control their own playback volume. Moreover, the unit gives you more tone-shaping and editing controls right in the box: Compress your audio, de-ess sibilant guests, apply noise reduction, or shape the tone, all without ever leaving the P8. Onboard editing functions let you fade, split, combine, and trim audio clips into produced products without ever using a computer. Remote guests haven’t been left behind as a mix-minus function ensures echo-free call-ins. The P8 gives you multiple, simultaneous options for handling remote guests from smartphones, tablets, and computers. One option is to plug your phone right into a dedicated stereo TRRS input, or make use of the BTA-2 Bluetooth adapter (available separately) to wirelessly stream audio from your smartphone into that TRRS channel.  If you’re talking to someone over VoIP, you can plug your Skype- or Zoom-enabled computer into a dedicated USB-C port. This input takes over the P8's sixth channel, which means that you can still use the TRRS input and have multiple remote guests on simultaneously. The unit boasts nine pads and four banks for storing and triggering jingles, cues, and bumper music. Thirteen prerecorded sounds come stock, and you can load up to 36 of your own. Remember that USB-C connection we just highlighted? It also lets you run the device as a 2-in/2-out USB audio interface with Mac, Windows, iOS, and even some Android devices. Use this connection to record your podcast to a stereo track, or to stream live. For multitrack recording, the PodTrak P8 offers an SD slot able to handle 512 GB of audio. You can record each XLR input, remote input, and soundboard to their own individual files. The PodTrak P8 also makes a master stereo recording of your mix for quick and easy exporting in mission-critical scenarios. Fitting an all-in-one podcasting solution, the PodTrak P8 offers multiple power options. Slip in four AA batteries, run it off the included AC adapter, or even USB bus power when connected to a PC. To read more about the P8—or to purchase it today—head on over to our website, or visit us at our SuperStore.
