"Splits and combines mic signals"

The Art SplitComPro is a small box, designed to both split and combine microphone signals passively. It has two inputs, two outputs, and two control switches. It has rubber feet that come up on the sides of the box, making it very sturdy and stable when placed on the floor or on a table. The rubber feet also isolate the metal box from the ground or any metal beneath the box, which is convenient.

The two inputs on the Art SplitComPro are: Main mic input, and Isolated mic input (combined). The isolated input is used to combine a secondary mic signal with the main signal. There are also two switches on the box: a ground/lift switch, and a phase inverting switch. The phase switch inverts the isolated inputs and outputs, relative to the main input and output. The ground/lift switch has the ability to float the isolated input and output's ground; it has no affect in the main input and output.

And finally, the two outputs on the device are: Main mic output, and Isolated mic output (splitter). Here is where you can split the combined signals (or just main mic signal) into two paths. This is what I find the most useful feature of this box, and that is the main reason I purchased it. For live shows, I wanted to tap into my main microphone line without affecting the signal feed to the house, so I could use that extra microphone signal for a headphone amp. And this box works great at doing that. It is solid, professional, and it will passively and discreetly function without affecting the main mic input and output.

The Art SplitComPro can also handle phantom power correctly, but only through the main mic input and output. Overall, this is a simple, functional box that has it's uses, albeit a bit specific. Great multi-purpose tool that although I do not currently use, I keep around because it is always useful.
