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.

It's an invaluable tool as a video producer and wedding filmmaker
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.
if you need to split
a single mic to recorder and onto PA...
seems to work other way too...
tested recording...with it
so that is ok...
NOT recommended for serious mics...tho...
only recommended for typical usd 100 dollar mics or cheaper.
DO NOT USE 48Vdc condensers on this thing....
does the job at least for dynamics and ribbons...tho
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.
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.
