ART SPLITCom Pro Microphone Signal Splitter / Combiner
ART SPLITCom Pro Microphone Splitter & Combiner
Truly a unique device. This unit is capable of both splitting AND combining a microphone signal. Why buy two devices when this little beauty can do both jobs. Talk about versatility! As well as being a two in one bonus box, isolated input's and outputs mean it is safe from nasty ground loops. A must have for any touring sound engineer, this unit is a great way to save channels, or send multiple signals from side of stage.
The SPLITCom Pro provides one direct-coupled output and one isolated output from a single microphone. Applications include sending the direct output to the main or FOH mixer, and the second isolated output to a monitor or recording mixer. The MAIN MIC OUTPUT passes phantom power from the main mixer to the MAIN MIC INPUT for use with condenser microphones. Phantom power is blocked from passing to the ISOLATED MIC OUTPUT.
The SPLITCom Pro provides one output from two microphone inputs. Phantom power passes through each output to their respective input, (MAIN to MAIN, ISOLATED to ISOLATED), however phantom power is blocked from passing between the MAIN and ISOLATED signal paths. Only the audio passes between the MAIN and ISOLATED signal paths (it is present on all inputs and outputs).
ART (acronym: Applied Research & Technology) are renowned for producing devices that feature unique gadgets and functions that make you think "Why hasn't anyone thought of that before?".
As well as its already proven versatility, this unit features a ground lift switch, to minimise hum, and a phase inversion switch for those situations where two mics are just the perfect distance apart to create troublesome phase problems. This is particularly useful when dual mic'ing percussion instruments, choirs, and instrument amplifiers.
- Low distortion with wide frequency response
- Two functions in one box: combines and/or splits
- Phase invert switch for subtractive combining
- Galvanic isolation to block phantom power between channels
- Ground lift switch to reduce noise due to ground loops
By: Rob Jackson on 5 August 2013Absolute perfect solution. Needed to split pro-shotgun mikes to two different mixers (1 live; 1 recording) maintaining the phantom power. Unbelievably good clean sound to each mixer. Recommend: YES :)
