(well, it IS the cables page after all)
I have a V3 that I want to run and extra out from the analog XLR outs to my 1/8" in jack and a backup.
I currently run it mostly COAC out, but I like to run a backup just in case, and the analog XLR outs are HOT! I tried a -24 db attenuator in a little wire from adorama that I used when sending a signal to my camera, but it was too much of a pad. Picked up these in the Yard Sale:
Naiant Inline XLR -12 db attenuator pair, 9" cable length
And they are the correct pad to feed any of the recorders I have without clipping, but they have a HUGE footprint. A big connect on either side and I still have to connect an XLR>1/8 to the end of that. I might as well have 2 more recorders in the bag.
Is it possible to made a reliable attenuator cable that is just as small as Robb or Ted's right angle connects that terminates into a 1/8" jack? (see picture below?)
My favorite mics, that I currently only seem to use for backup are made by Leonard Lombardo. I love them.
They take a lower power supply than the standard 48v that my shiny OCM r44 supplies, and I was wondering the same question:
Can a reliable attenuator be made with small, glue-filled right angle plug>1/8" in that would allow me to safely power the mics with a phantom 48v supply?
Right now I have a Naiant pfa, pictured below, but it takes a lot of space in the bag as well.
Come to think of it, what are the power requirements for Sonic Studios mics? I can't seem to find that anywhere?
Thanks for any help on this, If anyone wants to chime in on building said cables, I'd be happy to oblige them.
I'm just about done with my Korg MR1 project, just in time for NO ONE to EVER use that recorder again, so maybe I should just go buy a D1 or something stupid.
