XLR Mic Cable Splitter - Phantom Power
« on: July 16, 2017, 07:03:24 PM »
I recently purchased a Zoom H6, and I was disappointed to learn that the safety recording feature only works on the L/R channels (microphone capsule add-on which does not support phantom power).  I wondered if splitting the signal from one pair of phantom powered SDC mics into two pairs of inputs would:

1. be electrically feasible - I do not have a solid understanding of how phantom power works.
2. pose a risk of shorting out something in the recorder?

My thought here is that I could run lower gain on the 2nd pair of inputs to create a safety track.
