Product Description

You know what's awesome about ART? These guys build gear to take care of all of the problems that inevitably creep up when you're putting together a system. Take, for example, this ART SPLITCom Pro. It's simple, really. You can use it to split or combine low impedance mic signals... noting out of this world, but it's really, really, really useful! Say, for instance, you're trying to setup a simple personal monitor on stage. You could run the signal up to the board, amplify it, and send it through and aux back to the stage or you could just just split it right at the source, with an ART SPLITCom Pro, and run it into a powered monitor on stage and the baord. Or say you're low on board inputs altogether — just take your ART SPLITCom Pro and sum two mics together. You can even use it on top and bottom drum mics, by engaging the onboard phase reverse switch. Plus, it's a super-handy isolation device too. See? ART really does built cool gear for lots of situations. So make you life easier, and get an ART SPLITCom Pro, or two, or eight.

The circuit is capacitor-coupled, with two electrolytic and three ceramic capacitors. This blocks DC and thus phantom power, but real engineers beware the lack of isolation or impedance matching.

A capacitor will output a DC current impulse until it "fills" up, then it blocks DC. DC has to be constant for it to block it. A true isolation transformer will pass a quick pulse but not remain on the isolated side like a battery.

The capacitors inside this product act as a temporary storage battery, means if you apply 48 volt phantom power to the main side, you got a 48 volt battery on the isolated side unless you bleed the charge from pin 2 and 3 to ground before connecting your equipment. Do this and the isolated side will not have DC as long as phantom isn't switched off. Again DC must be constant for the caps to block it.

It already cost me a mixer input and a sub mixer's output section. Don't make the same mistake I did. Ground lift does nothing for this symptom because the equipment you split/combine the signal to has a ground (OR SHOULD) which will complete the circuit thus causing damage.

As a ground lift and phase invert its fine, but as a splitter/combiner and isolator you will have problems and equipment damage if you do not take the steps above to prevent it! Don't waste your money with these.

very useful
if you need to split
a single mic to recorder and onto PA...

seems to work other way too...

too
so that is ok...

NOT recommended for serious mics...tho...

only recommended for typical usd 100 dollar mics or cheaper.

WARNING UPDATE
DO NOT USE 48Vdc condensers on this thing....

does the job at least for dynamics and ribbons...tho

If you have a drummer with two kick drums, but only one channel for a kick, this will help you immensely. You can even use this to blend two rack tom mics together to save channels. If you're a keyboardist with two keys, you can join them together into one signal to send to the sound guy.

But what makes it really helpful, is if you're using in-ear monitors. You plug your mic into this guy. You plug the FOH mic cable into this guy so the sound guy gets your signal uninterrupted. Then you plug your IEM setup into this guy, to give exactly the same signal to yourself with full control.

This little box makes stage life easier. Best kept secret in stage sound.

Not only does this "split" the signal, it actually cleans up the audio signal and eliminates some hums/hisses. I was at a wedding and tapped into the DJ's system and he was blown away that his speakers didn't hum anymore and he said he was going to go buy one of these for every mobile dj system they have (I think they have over a dozen setups).

It's an invaluable tool as a video producer and wedding filmmaker

This splitter box seems to work just fine for use in my home studio. I use it to split a bass drum mike with one output to the PA and one to the recording interface. Only complaint is that the labeling of the inputs and outputs is almost impossible to read due to the size and color.

This is my second one of these and this one works as flawlessly as the first.

We use it to run a mic into the main mic input, and then run the main mic output to a powered mixer. We then run the isolated mic output to the xbox360 via a xlr to 1/4phono cable to a modified do it yourself 1/4phono to usb adapter.

We then mute the vocals in game and use the powered mixer to mix in the mic volume.

Works flawlessly for this purpose.

Great product.

It works, a little quirky. For instance, if you use two microphone, try to use two of the same model. Also if the mic has a switch in the off position, both are muted.
Worked well for splitting to send a signal to two different speakers.
Plugging in an iPod and a mic didn't work out for me. It's not a mixer, but it splits just fine.

Inexpensive solution to a simple problem. We have noticed that the volume of one mic is affected by the on/off state the other (both wireless mics) when using the combiner, but that's not really an issue for us.
