Need to connect MX418 to Midas as a talk back mic

FAQ #410 Updated January 13, 2010


I want to use the MX418 for my talkback on my Midas and Soundcraft 8000. Is there a type of battery connector or something to make this work for phantom? Do you make a mic that this works with? I have seen others doing this before, but did not get the chance to check.


The MX418 could be used as a talk back mic in a console by using an external phantom power supply. The MX418 requires phantom power to work. We recommend contacting Stewart Electronics or Whirlwind for a battery powered phantom power supply.

Any of our dynamic mics could be used as a talkback microphone without the external phantom power supply.
