newManley Manley MicMAID

4x4 Mic-Pre Matrix Switcher
  • Description
  • Features

The MicMAID was designed to fill a particular niche in the business that has never really been addressed: auditioning and selecting microphones and microphone preamplifiers. Proper pairing of mics and preamps has always been (and always will be!) a vital step in the tracking process, but there has never been a simple, accurate way of doing this.

With the MicMAID, this problem is solved. Four mics are plugged in, four preamplifiers are plugged in, and that’s it. Hear any mic through any pre, any way you like. For each of the four signal paths, levels are easily adjusted and saved – this level-matching fixes the all-too-common problem we encounter when we just assume the “louder” signal path is the “better” signal path. Subtle sonic differences between pieces of equipment are now instantly perceivable, with a simplicity never previously available.

In addition to the four main outputs the routing matrix provides, there is a fifth output labeled MON/REC on the rear panel. Although th…

Subtle sonic differences between pieces of equipment are now instantly perceivable, with a simplicity never previously available.

In addition to the four main outputs the routing matrix provides, there is a fifth output labeled MON/REC on the rear panel. Although this is described as a “monitor” output, this output can (and should) be used for recording purposes – for it is only this output that utilises the active components of the MicMAID. These include the level-matching capabilities and the Variable Phase section of the unit. When the continuously variable phase circuit is selected, it allows you to easily phase-align the selected mic signal (or the front-panel DI signal) with another microphone. This phase adjustment has an all-pass filter with two selectable centre frequencies, making it useful on a variety of sources.
