A Gotta-have for Your Live Sound Tool Kit!The ART S8 8-channel microphone splitter sports an effective tool for splitting eight balanced low-impedance microphone signals to pairs of outs, giving you 16. Each channel of the S8 rocks one direct out and one transformer-isolated out from one microphone. You can send the direct outs to the main or FOH mixer, and the second isolated outs to a monitor or recording mixer. The direct outs pass phantom power from the main mixer to the microphones for use with condenser microphones. If you want a dependable splitter for you microphone signal, go with the S8!

The S8 includes a ground-lift switch on each isolated output to reduce hum due to ground loops between connected AC-powered units. For versatility the S8 also features an attenuator pad switch on each in that can be used to connect preamplified signals to the two microphone-level outs on each channel.
