The MV88 is not compatible with my iPhone 8 using Filmic Pro. I actually found this question while s The MV88 is not compatible with my iPhone 8 using Filmic Pro. I actually found this question while searching if anyone else had this problem. I have the Rode Mini and it works fine when I plug it in with a TRRS adapter. But the MV88 does not work when I plug it into the lightning port and I run Filmic Pro. It works with the regular iPhone camera video, but not Filmic Pro. Filmic Pro recognizes the device-- I looked under the audio tab in settings and it says that the Shure MV88 is attached....but it doesn't record any sound at all. If anyone knows a workaround I'd love to hear about it.
