You will find you'll be much better of buying a real patchbay. It's simply an issue of how manufacturers design their products. You're going to wind up needing weird cables male-male on one side or the other. Just jammed the bare copper wire into these stoopid little compression fittings. It was the ultmiate in absolute cheapness when it comes to manufacturing methods. Would love to see this feature in the existing body's inputs but this is a relatively inexpensive option and perfect for what I do. Are they a stock item? It was the ultmiate in absolute cheapness when it comes to manufacturing methods.
I know I read somewhere that a good pressure connection is better than a soldered one. I just wanted to hear it from someone who knows more about it than me. But I'm all for it if they you can assemble connectors using a punch-down tool like on phone or network connectors for a permanent installation. Well If I'm gonna be plugging and unplugging mics it would be nice if they were on the front. The easiest way to deal with them is just to plug them in to a panel with female jacks wired in back to preamp inputs. This works, but it does depend on what connector is at the other end. The views expressed are those of the contributors and not necessarily those of the publishers.
Overall I recommend it if you need more inputs on your recorder. Again, look to Markertek for many options like that - and they do custom jobs too. However, it makes your wiring rather more tricky but far from impossible. What you really need is a combo patchbay. They didn't even tin the wire leads. A tie rail takes the strain off this. I mean I'm all for process improvements and improving the bottom line but jeez.
With that, you can use the normalling contacts to set up a default signal flow- then, the only time you need to use a patch cable is when you want to set up an exception to the default flow. Here's an example of what i'm thinking. Prices, specifications, and images are subject to change without notice. A turnaround, or a chassis mount connector? My lavs are all self powered, so for my use it shouldn't be a problem in video shoots. Assuming nothing exists off the shelf like that - you can always go to Markertek and have them custom-build one for you.
On the H6, does this unit allow you to record in stereo? What you really need is a combo patchbay. Search Engine Optimisation provided by - Copyright © 2019 DragonByte Technologies Ltd. Or throw in a Fethead or Cloudlifter on top of this to boost the signal. That's pretty much how everyone I know has done it forever. To my mind, it was a good idea to keep the whole panel mic-level, which avoids any possibility of getting confused and connecting something at line level to an input that's expecting a mic level signal which can produce dramatic results.
I generally like Neutrik connectors but I always buy the gold-plated solder type. You'll definitely want to reinforce the socket somehow, somewhere, because it'll get a lot of wear and tear; normal abuse even when just plugging and un-plugging stuff. The reason it can switch is because it physically pushes open the contact that causes normalled, when a plug is inserted. I doubt this would be available unless it was custom built. Have I ever noticed a difference in sound quality? If having them on a unit is enough to make you not buy it sorry about your luck because these type of plugs are on almost everything these days. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe a balanced cable has three conductors, a hot, a cold and a ground.
Ultimately this is more for a potential rack mounted mobile setup and trying to keep wire simplicity to a minimum. I don't believe so, short of what I stated above, but as always I'm happy to be corrected. Capable of handling either mic- or line-level signals, each input is equipped with its own preamp and -20 dB pad. People like Markertec, or Gepco, can make panels for you in any configuration you might like. Oh yes, and add to that the potential danger of sending. I am pretty sure I sent a nasty-gram to Neutrik about it. .
This also fits in with the mention of normalling above. I could however be completely off the mark. That's just a waste of connectors and cable. I've never been shocked by 48V , but I believe it exists, and I know what happens when it's missing: Nothing! Build quality is very good thought the connectors don't lock as they do on recorder's Neutrik jacks. Will this module still provide the power to enable lav mics without power to work. I love the physical trim pots and pads. Can it be made as you want? Yea, the combo jacks were a terrible idea.
