I then tried recording a guitar track through the 1/4" jack line to try that. Same exact result. So then I just tried listening to existing songs I've recorded in GarageBand, which I know are not corrupted or anything and just monitored the songs through the MVi. In some cases I was able to listen for 45 seconds, and others 10-15 seconds....but I never got through a song without the static kicking in.
I called Shure's tech support line to see if I was doing something wrong. The technician said that this is a very well known issue with Shure's Motive products not working well with GarageBand. He said they are hopeful that Apple's next iOS release, 11.3 should solve this issue. However I don't know when that will be released and if it doesn't work with GarageBand, I will be returning the product before the 30 day return policy expires.
Shure certainly markets this as a great interface for iOS devices, but I feel like they should have a disclaimer that it will not work with GarageBand, as this is the native recording software on iOS devises.
I won't give this 1 star because it appears to be well made and sturdy, and if used with different software and apps, it may work great. Just not for me.
It’s worth noting, the unit does not come with a USB-C cable. That’s kind of to be expected, as the iPad just switched over to USB-C. No big deal. I plugged the MVi into the official Apple USB-C to USB adapter. Unfortunately there was a LOT of low-level noise when recording guitar into GarageBand. Thinking it might be related to the Apple Adapter, I went out and purchased a USB mini to USB-C cable to go directly from the MVi into the iPad. Really no discernible difference, still very noisy. I’ve compared this to an M-Audio recording interface I have, and the difference is pretty stark.
I’ve also been having problems with the MVi stopping the headphone monitoring if the app is minimized and then reopened. This happens in Garageband, Audiobus, Looperverse, AND the official Shure Motiv app.
Is it possible I have a faulty unit? Or do these things just not like the new iPads? Anyone else have a similar experience?
The audio quality is excellent and there is plenty of gain for most any mic, including a +20db boost for an SM7B or a ribbon mic. It also has switchable phantom power that supplies 12v from an iOS device, or 48v on usb power. I found that the 12v phantom power had no problem powering the Shure SM86, Beta87A, and AKG C1000S hand held small diaphragm condenser mics. It also easily powered a Shure KSM32 and an AKG C214 large diaphragm condenser on 12v phantom, but my Audio Technica AT4050 was noisy with low gain, so full 48v phantom power would be needed in that case. I was also able to play my guitars with no noticeable latency through the Amplitube app.
I have always been a fan of Shure products because they are well engineered, built to high quality standards and generally just get the job done. If you need an easy to use, quality interface for your iPad, look no further!

Es compatible con mi Ipad mini, mi iphone 6, mi pc, utilizo bias fx, tanto en ios como la pc, y en verdad que a mi me dejo satisfecho, utilizó una bocina sony para sacar el sonido y no usar audífonos, no se si sea correcto o no o si me sacrificarán los expertos, pero así he estado tocando mi guitarra varias horas y suena excelente, sin latencia o yo no la percibo, sin ruidos raros, a excepción de los de las pastillas (guitarra diy les paul Harley Benton) y me gusta el sonido.
Antes usaba el cable del rocksmith pero no me da mucha confianza ya que se siente muy endeble y delicado, pero ahora ya uso el cable que quiero y sin temor a romperlo.
Los cables son uno común micro usb, use uno genérico y funciona sin problemas, el de micro usb-lightning se ve de buena calidad, aunque conseguiré otro por si éste se rompe.
Si compraría otra mvi sin dudarlo.
Even cheap guitar USB cables work better. Disappointment along with a hole in my pocket.
Con instrumentos y micrófonos dinámicos es excelente.
El tamaño es fantástico (muy pequeñita), pero a pesar de eso los materiales son muy magníficos
Contras: Por lo menos la que me llegó, al conectar un micrófono de condensador que utiliza Power Phantom (Para encender PW en iPhone o iPad: conectarla y sostener el botón de micrófono por tres segundo) se metía un ruido de interferencia muy molesto y por ese motivo decidí devolverla pero puede que sólo haya sido esa.
Y sobre el producto, muy practico, funcional y de calidad, algo normal viniendo de la casa Shure.
