Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
Hello, I would like to add two addtional mics fora total of four on my karaoke machine & I am not sure how to do so. My machine has 2 XLR mic inputs and 2 1/4 in jack mic inputs, however the manual states that both cannot be used simultaneously. Is it safe to simply purchase a spliter for each 1/4 inch mic jack , thus having 2 mics per 1/4 in micinput? Can you offer nay other solutions.
Putting spliiters on the input of a Mic priamp to connect to Mics to one pre is a bad idea. There are lots of techy reasons why, but the short version is "Don't Do it"
So how to solve your problem..
If you have a spare Line input you could buy a cheap external mixer, which will take the microphones and provide an appropriate level signal to your machine.
Something like this ought to do it..
If you have no line inputs, then you can use the output of the mixer into a DI Box to match the levels and use your exisiting Mic ins.
DO NOT CONNECT THE LINE OUT FROM THE MIXER TO THE MIC INPUTS WITHOUT A DI BOX!
