The Audio-Technica AT8681 UniMix® is part of the UniTools® group of phantompowered in-line microphone accessories. It combines the output from two microphones into one channel. A continuously variable balance control allows the two input sources to be mixed. Applications for the UniMix® include expanding the input capacity of mixers, combining two microphones to send signal down a single cable where it is difficult to run a second cable, and combining microphones on similar instruments to minimize the number of cables on stage. Designed to operate with balanced audio lines, the UniMix® requires 24V to 48V DC phantom power and will pass phantom power to the connected microphones.
Featuring a rugged steel housing and XLR-type input/output connectors, the UniMix® can be installed anywhere in-line, either at the mixer input or near the mic.
UniTools are phantom-powered in-line microphone accessories that can be used to combine a channel or add a switch. Compact, economical and easy to use, they provide outstanding, reliable performance. Available in two function-specific models, UniTools are intended primarily for use with UniPoint and similar condenser microphones. Both have professional XLR type input/output connectors, and require balanced cables and 24 - 48V DC phantom power for operation. ("In" and "Out" markings refer to the mic audio.) Both units permit phantom voltage to pass on to the microphone. Featuring rugged steel housings, UniTools can be installed anywhere in-line, either at the mixer input or near the mic.
