M300 / M350: Connecting a microphone

Question

I'm using the unit with a microphone and a mixer. Can I connect the microphone directly to the inputs and outputs to the microphone inputs of my mixer?

Answer

The unit features line inputs which require a higher signal than a microphone (in most cases) can provide, when connected directly.

Also the outputs are line level, a signal too high for most mic inputs on mixers.

Ideally, you should either:

  1. Connect it to the effect loop of your mixer using the send/returns on the mixer - or -
  2. Connect your microphone to a mic preamp capable of providing a line level signal to the inputs, and then connect the outputs of the unit to the line inputs of your mixer.
