Pro Line Level Output - Dual Outputs to Easily Connect to Any Camera
Provides both a +4dBu balanced 5-pin XLR output via an optional cable for connection to balanced line level inputs such as the ARRI ALEXA Mini or the ARRI ALEXA Mini LF, and an unbalanced 3.5mm TRS output via the included cable for connection to unbalanced inputs such as the RED DSCM2 module.

Audio Bracketing - Setup a Second Channel for Backup
A very useful feature allows you to use audio bracketing when using a single mono microphone to have a backup channel that is recorded at a lower level. This gives you a safety track in case the primary channel gets distorted from an overly hot input.
Flexible Mounting Options - Easily Mounts to Your Rig
Built-in thumbscrew with 1⁄4” / 20 mounting bolt to easily attach to any threaded hole. Can also be attached to a hot shoe via the removeable brass mounting foot. Three built-in 1⁄4” / 20 threaded inserts allow you to attach multiple accessories
