could anyone please explain, as detailed as possible, Phantom Power(+48V)?
#2
i think its like, instead of having to supply a power source for a mic, it supplys it and goes to the inferface or watevr ur plugging it into, make sense?,
#3
phantom power is needed to power most condenser mics. It usualy comes on an interface or mixing board.... never heard off a single pahntom power supply :P

Plug the condenser in an XLR input. Turn phantom power on and 48v comes streaming out of the interface/mixing board, throught the cable and into the mic

more convient than what?
#9
more convienient than having to have an adapter, power sorce and a bttery.. or wire,
but ya,
#10
really if all its asking for is the function just say it powers the mic.. thats all it does
#11
I know but its worth 10% and thought that wudnt really justify 10% cos its about 2 lines and its for a uni resit essay so its kinda important.
thanks for your help though i will put something in about not havin to use an adapter or battery.
