The MS12 Mic Splitter by Lambden Audio is a professional-quality standalone microphone splitter.
The MS12 is renowned for its incredible high specification build quality, with over 20 years of design refinement. It is manufactured from die-cast aluminium, having metal endplates and sockets. The MS12 will undoubtedly survive any treatment, whether it’s being used night after night on tour or in the recording studio. Some examples of applications for the MS12 include live broadcasting or recording, press conferences, and even on-stage monitoring.
Moving to the layout of this microphone splitter, on the right-hand side of the MS12, there is a 1x female XLR input socket. The input circuit is line level and can also be used as an isolation transformer for longer audio feeds.
There is 1x male XLR direct output. This essentially means the MS12 can be included in any circuit without losing the signal path. This allows you to keep the original signal path while splitting the signal.
On the MS12 you will find a phase reverse switch not seen on the MS12 unit. Onto the left side of the unit, where you will find 2 male XLR outputs that are transformer coupled. In addition, there are two ground lift switches to help combat ground loops and minimise any interference and unwanted noise.
Lastly, all the unit’s inputs and outputs are fully isolated from each other via the built-in transformer, eliminating interference from SCR lighting dimmers, radio transmitters and even AC power wiring for example. The result is high-quality conversion and excellent performance. The MS12 is passive and does not require any power supply.
