I did a signal shootout and my Volca Bass has the most powerful output out of the three Volcas, with the Keys being the quietest and most in need of the help. Using this on the Sample will eliminate the stereo spread. The Volca Sample is a stereo device, so a 3.5mm to 1/4" dual splitter cable should be used for that unless you don't mind using it as a mono device. Just a heads-up.
The Monotribe does have a 1/4" out as well as the 3.5mm headphone jack, but if you use this adapter on a stereo cable running from its 3.5mm jack, you get a pretty serious signal boost over the larger 1/4" output. It gives you an extra option.
Overall, I'm impressed.
All issues seem to be due to a loose 3.5mm input jack connection. If I keep the mic/cable steady on a table, it always worked well but with almost any movement, I had some kind of noise. What is very nice is the ability for the adapter to interface with a mic that had its own internal battery or when I had mics that needed the phantom voltage via my recorder. Unfortunately, the mechanics need improvement for 100% reliability.
I connected this to my Tascam DR40 recorder and used 4 different mono mics - 1 JK lapel mic, 1 AT lapel mic, 1 AT shotgun, 1 old PC dynamic mic from an older HP computer. All of them had noisy electrical connection from the 3.5mm plug to the adapter. I could rotate or tug on the plug and would constantly get static, much more than seemed reasonable. I could plug these same mics into my Sony RX10ii camera directly, or through a mono-stereo adapter and NEVER had any connection issues direct to my camera. It appears there is not enough contact area on one of the ring terminals inside the adapter.
The connection was secure, it's heavy duty and I have no problem with it being lose in my camera bag. Plugged in correctly to a zoom h4n, a sony EX3 and a Panasonic H150 all working perfectly before I wrote this review.
It'll certainly get you out of a jam, and is now an essential backup adapter "just in case." There aren't any cons to list, as it's a simple product with an exceptional result.
I basically leave this adapter connected most of the time, and just pop in the mic line when I'm going to use it. I like that it is black because it blends in with the camera body and accessories well.
