The Phantom 1x2
The US-1x2 can record from virtually any source thanks to its selection of inputs. The unit's XLR microphone input employs TASCAM's high-end Ultra-HDDA mic preamp, which uses discrete components and features an impressive -125 dBu EIN rating and 101 dB signal-to-noise ratio, meaning the noise level is so low it's almost inaudible. The Ultra-HDDA preamp's 57 dB gain range and the interface's switchable +48V phantom power make the US-1x2 a great choice for use with almost any type of microphone, including dynamic, condenser, or ribbon mics.

Stereo line-level outputs are provided on RCA connectors, and the line outputs and 1/4-inch stereo headphone output have independent output level controls. The headphone out is plenty loud, thanks to an 18 mW/channel amplifier. Front-panel LEDs indicate signal present, peak/clip, phantom power active, and USB active.
I haven't done anything with the first phantom yet sadly. I'd like to, but it looks that it would nearly require a complete redesign rather than just a simple upgrade like the II. Eventually I'd like to take on building a minifig sized Ghost which would accept a larger Phantom, but I'm not that brave yet. lol
The Whirlwind Qbox-aes is a multipurpose testing device for troubleshooting digital AES-3, S/PDIF and analog audio signals. The Qbox-aes is composed of two sections; the Send section and the Receive/Monitor section. A Test Mode switch selects Analog or AES testing operation. In AES test mode the Receive section consists of the LED sample rate indicators and the decoder that converts the digital signal into analog for the Speaker and the Line/Phones monitor. The digital Send section converts a choice of analog input signals into AES-3 professional and S/PDIF digital format and delivers them to the output connectors through Send Level and Sample Rate controls. An AES Function switch determines how the AES testing occurs. The Send/Receive test operates as described above and the Inline Monitor position allows the Qbox-aes to be inserted inline in an AES stream for real time monitoring.In Analog test mode the Qbox-aes is similar in operation to the Whirlwind Qbox. The XLR connectors are used to send and receive analog audio signals. Mic, Oscillator and Aux signals are controlled by the Send level control and sent out the male XLR. The female XLR receives analog input and delivers it to the Speaker through the Volume control. A three position switch allows the selection of a balanced input or unbalanced pin 2 or pin 3 to be monitored separately and Phantom LEDS indicate the presence of phantom power at the male XLR. Power is supplied by 4 AA batteries or the included wall power supply (model # PS6).
The compact US-1x2HR incorporates a wealth of features, including high audio resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz, ultra-low latency with a Windows buffer size starting at four samples, Ultra-HDDA mic preamplifiers with 48-volt phantom power for superior sound quality with ultra-low noise, a robust USB Type C connector, and a rich assortment of included software to start producing audio right away. The lightweight interface is ideal for mobile recording and production using an iPhone or iPad* with the included Cubasis LE so you can take it to your practice room, use it to report from a live event, or capture nature sounds outdoors.Usability is key
I need to send my kick mic signal to our main board and to my monitor mixer tonight. Easiest way is going to be with a Y-cable, but will that work? It's an Audix D6 so I assume it's not relying on phantom power or anything. Anything I should keep in mind before I try? I assume this is kinda like using a splitter snake but on a smaller scale...
The 1x2 is 2 isololated splits in addition to a direct through output. This allows complete isolation or, if phantom power is necessary, you can use the direct out between the mic and phantom power source. 041b061a72
