Impact AV has a selection of Mixers, Microphone Fins and Microphones for your conference or event!
In audio, a mixing console or audio mixer is an electronic device for combining (also called “mixing”), routing, and changing the level, timbre (tone color) and/or dynamics of many different audio signals, such as microphones being used by singers, mics picking up acoustic instruments such as drums or saxophones, or signals from electric or electronic instruments such as the electric bass or synthesizer.
Mixing consoles are used in many applications, including recording studios, public address systems, sound reinforcement systems, broadcasting, television, and film post-production. A typical, simple application combines signals from two microphones (each used by vocalists singing a duet, perhaps) into an amplifier that drives one set of speakers simultaneously.
In live performances, the signal from the mixer usually goes directly to an amplifier (unless the mixer has a built in power amplifier or is connected to powered speakers).
What is a Microphone Fin used for?
The Microphone Fin is a multi-purpose antenna for wireless microphones that reduces dropouts using a cross-polarized, hybrid design. One element captures vertically waves, and the other horizontally waves—doing the same job as two “shark fin” paddles while greatly improving RF and audio performance.
To use, just connect both the A and B outputs on any antenna distributor or microphone receiver and point toward the stage.
Looking for a microphone, mic or mike for your conference or event?
A microphone, colloquially mic or mike is an acoustic-to-electric that converts audio into an electrical signal. Electromagnetic transducers facilitate the conversion of acoustic signals into electrical signals.
Most microphones today use electronic induction (dynamic microphones), capacitance change (condenser microphones) to produce an electrical signal from air pressure variations. Microphones typically need to be connected to a pre amplifier before the signal can be amplified with a audio power amplifier and a speaker or recorded.
