Setting phantom power
Phantom power can be turned on when an external mic that
requires it is connected to a MIC/LINE IN (BALANCED) L/R jack.
1. Select MIC PHANTOM on the REC 1 page to open the PHANTOM
POWER screen.(see “Menu operation procedures” on page
22)
2. Turn phantom power on or off.
Options: OFF (default), ON
NOTE
i When phantom power is on, the icon appears in the
recording function activation status area on the recording
screen.
The unit will actually output phantom power when the INPUT
SELECT screen is set to ANALOG BALANCED, or the BAL. INPUT
GAIN screen is set to MIC-LOW or MIC-HIGH. When phantom
power is actually turned on, a “ Phantom Power ON? ” mes-
sage will appear.
i When REC SET LINK is set to OFF on the REC 1 page, the lev-
els of the left and right channel inputs are adjusted separate-
ly.(see “Setting left/right channel inputs separately” on page
53)
3. Confirm the setting and return to the Menu Screen.
Phantom power (48V) will be turned on for the MIC/LINE IN
(BALANCED) L/R jacks and supplied to connected mics.
CAUTION
i Before making connections, turn this unit and all equipment
to be connected off (standby).
i Confirm that phantom power is OFF before connecting a line
level device to a MIC/LINE IN (BALANCED) L/R jack. If you
connect a line level device while phantom power is being
supplied, that device and this unit could be damaged.
i Do not connect or disconnect mics with the MIC/LINE IN
(BALANCED) L/R jacks while phantom power is on. Doing so
could cause a loud noise and might damage the equipment.
i Turn phantom power ON only when using a condenser micro-
phone that requires phantom power. Turning phantom power
on when a dynamic mic or other mic that does not require it is
connected could damage this unit and connected equipment.
i When using condenser mics that require phantom power
and dynamic mics together, be sure to use balanced dynamic
mics. Unbalanced dynamic mics cannot be used when phan-
tom power is enabled.
i Supplying phantom power to some ribbon mics will break
them. If you are unsure, do not supply phantom power to a
ribbon mic.
i Some condenser microphones will not operate when phan-
tom power is set to 48V.
Setting automatic gain control for mic
inputs
When the MIC AGC (automatic gain control during mic input)
function is on, mic input levels will be adjusted automatically in
response to the input audio.
Using this function, the recording level is automatically in-
creased when the input sound is too quiet or decreased when
it is too loud. This function is useful for recording meetings, for
example.
1. Select MIC AGC on the REC 2 page to open the MIC AGC
screen.(see “Menu operation procedures” on page 22)
2. Turn the MIC AGC function on or off.
Options: OFF (default), ON
NOTE
i When the automatic gain control function is on, the icon
appears in the recording function activation status area on
the recording screen.
i When REC SET LINK is set to OFF on the REC 1 page, the lev-
els of the left and right channel inputs are adjusted separate-
ly.(see “Setting left/right channel inputs separately” on page
53)
3. Confirm the setting and return to the Menu Screen.
