Powerful, low-noise preamplifiers for superb audio
Record high quality audio directly to your cinema camera – no syncing required. The ultra low-noise preamplifiers provide exceptional performance with 60dB of gain and over 100dB in dynamic range. Ideal for the RED DSCM2, ARRI ALEXA Mini or new ARRI ALEXA Mini LF cameras. Compact chassis easily mounts to camera, cage or rails. Constructed of top quality components for outstanding reliability and durability. Externally powered via a 2-pin LEMO connector.
Built-in Low/Good/Over level indicators make it easy to verify the signal levels at a glance, while the trim controls allow you to adjust the output signal for optimum recording. The phone jack lets you monitor the audio from the adapter during recording, or camera during playback. You can also loop the output audio from your camera back into the adapter to monitor confidence sound if your camera has a headphone jack.
Two mono and one stereo 3.5mm inputs with plug-in power work with virtually any camera mounted mic or lapel mic that operates on plug-in power. Also, ideal for use with wireless mics.
Optional third party XLR to 3.5mm cables available for use with self-powered balanced XLR microphones.
Provides both a +4dBu balanced 5-pin XLR output via an optional cable for connection to balanced line level inputs such as the ARRI ALEXA Mini or the ARRI ALEXA Mini LF, and an unbalanced 3.5mm TRS output via the included cable for connection to unbalanced inputs such as the RED DSCM2 module.
Here are the cables needed to connect to these cameras:
ALEXA Mini: BT-LEMO (5-pin XLR to 5-pin LEMO)
ALEXA Mini LF: BT-LF (5-pin XLR to 6-pin LEMO)
Optional BT-PWR cable available to connect the 2-pin LEMO power jack to a D-Tap
A very useful feature allows you to use audio bracketing when using a single mono microphone to have a backup channel that is recorded at a lower level. This gives you a safety track in case the primary channel gets distorted from an overly hot input.
Built-in thumbscrew with 1⁄4” / 20 mounting bolt to easily attach to any threaded hole. Can also be attached to a hot shoe via the removeable brass mounting foot. Three built-in 1⁄4” / 20 threaded inserts allow you to attach multiple accessories
