Our new ST-PAD/PHASE is a must-have gadget that is useful for all recording applications and all microphones. We have developed it over the past year in response to many users asking us how to handle signal overload.
When an audio signal is too powerful it can overload the sensitive circuitry of the microphone (especially when using ribbon mics), resulting in uncontrollable distortion. For example, consider the high Sound Pressure Levels produced by trumpets and saxophone, or electric guitar cabinets.
• handy inline switch that is ideal for use with SONTRONICS ribbon mics but can be used with any microphones
• features two -10db pads giving a total of -20db attenuation
• also offers 180º phase inversion
• simple to use: just plug into the XLR socket on your mic then attach na XLR
