From Our Research Team:
This Microphone Signal Splitter is a Live Toolbox Essential!The ART S8 8-channel microphone splitter gives you an effective tool for splitting eight balanced low-impedance microphone signals to pairs of outputs, giving you 16. Each channel of the S8 provides one direct output and one transformer-isolated output from a single microphone. You can send the direct outputs to the main or FOH mixer, and the second isolated outputs to a monitor or recording mixer. The direct outputs pass phantom power from the main mixer to the microphones for use with condenser microphones. If you want a dependable splitter for you microphone signal, choose the S8!
ART S8 8-channel Microphone Splitter at a Glance:
Ground lift on each output, pad on each input
The S8 includes a ground-lift switch on each isolated output to reduce hum due to ground loops between connected AC-powered units. For versatility the S8 also features an attenuator pad switch on each input that can be used to connect preamplified signals to the two microphone-level outputs on each channel. Typical preamplified signals would originate from instrument preamplifiers, mixers, keyboards, etc.

I can now adjust each mic for 'live' sound independantly from what goes to the computer. The vocalists can actually hear themselve clearly, and it's a whole lot easier to tweak the feedback levels of each one. close [-]
by Alan Bean from Western MaineNo complaints. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and does it with no discernable hiss, hum or coloration of the sound. All at a great price.
