“The DM1  is like something from a Harry Potter world: a magic stick that adds or subtracts nothing to/from the original microphone and allows you to place it at a comfortable distance.”

Q&A

What are the system requirements?

– Input: passive microphone (ribbon/dynamic)
– output: preamp/mixer/audio interface providing 48V phantom power

LIMITATIONS – not suitable for phantom-powered microphones (condenser microphones, active ribbon microphones)

What kind of microphones does the DM1 work with?

The DM1 is intended for use only with passive microphones – i.e. microphones that do not require phantom power for operation, like passive dynamic and passive ribbon microphones. It will not work with condenser microphones or active ribbon mics.

My DM1 isn't doing anything / I don't hear any signal / all I hear is a buzz or hum.

Please ensure the DM1 is connected securely between your microphone and your mic preamp, and make sure that +48V phantom power is turned ON on your mic preamp. If you are still experiencing problems, please contact your local dealer, or fill out our Support Request form and we’ll help!
