Does the Shure Motiv app split files automatically at 2GB or whatever? I need to turn this thing on, 24/48, and just let it run without worry or needing to start new files or anything.



Yes - I use that app w/ the Shure mic, and it will autosplit. It can be a bit buggy though, but if you have the phone software and the app updated, it seems to work best.

ok, I ran the Motiv app capturing at 24/48 yesterday, and now have several 2GB files on my phone.  "Save to Camera Roll" converts the files to lossy format, which I definitely don't want to do.

Save to Dropbox takes awhile... is there a way to transfer the WAV files from my iPhone 6+ to my Windows 10 PC, preferably using the lightning cable?

Perhaps 1Drive and Google Drive are options? I haven't gone looking for the app versions of those yet.

Obviously, moving 6 or more gigs around takes a little time no matter which method is used, but I'm looking for the quickest, that requires fewest clicks etc. :) What are others here doing to get things out of the Motiv app?

I'm not sure from a PC but I use iExplorer on the Mac to extract files directly from an iphone (connected via the lightning cable). There might be a PC equivalent
MK22's / MK41's / MK41v's (for sale) / MK4v's / MK4's / AKG C480Bs+ck61, ck63 / Telefunken FET M60 Cards and Hypers (for sale) / AT853s (for sale)
KCY 250/5 and Nbob KCY (x2) > naiant PFA or IPA or Nbox  / SP-SPSB-11 Battery Box
Zoom F8 (for sale) / Sony M-10 / Mixpre-6 / Tascam DR-100mkIII

I tried the lightning connection, but had trouble - mostly I'm assuming because it was my work PC and it's weird with outside programs/devices. I've used dropbox, and yes - it does take a while. But it's worked nonetheless...

My d:vice arrived in the mail yesterday and I've been playing around with it this morning.  I installed the DPA and Shure Motiv apps successfully and setup was painless.  After setting the 4061 mics up in the DPA app (stereo, +20dB gain, no roll off), I made a 1.5 hour test recording in the Shure Motiv app (24 bit/48kHz) and the file saved. My battery drained approximately 20% (iphone 6s).

To access the file from your iPhone:
- open iTunes
- click on the device icon at the top left (the icon with a picture of the phone)
- under Settings on the left, click on File Sharing
- select the MOTIV app and the wav file(s) should appear on the right to save to PC

Thanks for those iTunes instructions! I'll try those today.

Also, I found that the Audioshare app lets you select 96K sampling rate, but I haven't tested it yet to see if there is any content up there. :)

I captured an amazing Steely Dan tribute band on Friday night: DPA 4060's > D:vice > Motiv app > Magix Sound Forge 11 pro > iZotope Ozone > FLAC

It's currently seeing on Dime.
http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=609269

I can stick that somewhere else if there are any rabid fans of The Dan here who aren't members at Dime.

Not an overly loud band, and I was running at 30% (+9dB). I hit 0 a few times, although the clipping wasn't audible. Interesting... is this thing hard to clip, similar to the Sony PCM-10's line in?

Anyway, I'm now wondering if I'll be able to capture loud things like metal bands, running the D:vice at 0%, no boost. *sigh* Guess I'll need to save for a pair of 4061's for those cases.

Or, perhaps I could use a more advanced audio editing app like Ferrite, and have a soft limiter engaged?

Does anybody else feel that a switchable -10dB pad would be a useful addition to the D:vice app? I do, mostly because I use it with a pair of 4060's, so I'm worried about very loud sources. (occasional metal shows)

Perhaps if we write short reviews of the app and request this... :)

Personally, I would prefer a pad rather than a limiter.

Which Steely Dan cover band? We've got a great one here in Seattle - "Nearly Dan". I don't know how to use bit torrent but I could dropbox or Wetransfer if you'd be interested in checking them out.

Joining the team on this one.  Just picked up a pair of 4060s with a d:vice and some XLR adapters. Need to find some reasonably priced microdot extension cables for open taping.

^ Try CD International.  Not exactly cheap, but much cheaper than the DPA versions and there are lots of options...

Thanks as well Aaron. OT a little here, but beatkilla sent me a link to a fleaBay listing that I was interested in but couldn't do it because she's not shipping to Canada.  Shared this with you.  :)

Photos of their cables here- http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=175358.msg2179858#msg2179858

Choose male 10-32 termination (microdot) at one end and female 10-32 at the other for an extension cable.

 A very minor point due to it's size, but has anyone tested a metal detector with one of these + 4060/1's? Just wondering if it's best to just set aside in the tray with the phone - or if you can keep on you.
