3. 48v phantom power on selectable inputs versus all inputs at the same time on Mackie. Now i can use mics that do or don't require phantom power at same time.
Glad you are enjoying your M20d, but just a little clarification, you do realize that it is completely safe to use Dynamic mics with Phantom power turned on, right?
I mean, I would agree that being able to turn the phantom power independently on the top and bottom channel strips is better than having them all either on or off, but it would have actually been compeltely safe to use a mixture of condenser and dynamic mics with the phantom power on......
As far as I am aware it's only stuff like Ribbon mics that you can ruin with phantom power......
Someone feel free to chime in and correct me if I am wrong.....
Yes, regular dynamic microphones have no problem with phantom power. There are still some problems with phantom power on. For example some DJ mixers and other gear with less than perfectly designed outputs, some ribbon microphones and plugging and unplugging the inputs causing loud pops.
Thanks for the info of safe using 48v.
I have a wireless e965 and a cable conected e835, on my previous DL1680 i was getting pop's in my speakers when
Phantom power was turned on with both mics plugged in so i had to turn off the 48v to have 2 clean mics. Mi e965 wireless mic works fine without 48v but my e835 has better presence with the power turned on, so i had the phantom turned on an put up
With the pops.
Now with my new M20D i plug the wireless mic in the input strip with 48v turned off and my hard wired mic in the other input strip With 48v turned on, this way i get a good presence on my e835 and NO POPS Anymore, somehow my wireless receiver was generating pops when plugged in to
The same strip with the e835 and the 48V turned on.
