Don't Panic, Just Hit the Button!

Part of what makes live performances so exciting is that you never know what's going to happen. This is doubly true if you're the performer. Be prepared to shut your mic off or send it backstage in an instant, when you're plugged into the Panic Button from Pro Co. Whenever anything goes wrong, the Panic Button lets you get the attention of your roadie, the FOH guy, or other essential personnel, without your request going over the main sound system. By connecting your vocal mic to both the FOH system and an alternate location, you can toggle between the locations you want to send your voice, which means the crowd will never hear you asking for more monitors! Want an instant mute button? Don't connect anything to output B, and you can kill your mic with a toe tap. The show must go on, and the Panic Button lets it go on without the crowd knowing you even had a problem!

Great Device

This is perfect for me because I need the ability to talk primarily to the band during music, but also lead the congregation. I can easily switch back and forth between the inputs. Perfect for our needs!

House of Worship - Improves Communication

The Panic Button is perfect for any worship leader that needs the capability to connect with the band or vocalists (via wireless in ear monitors) without anyone else knowing. I lead from Keys in our House of Worship and we tend to go off set quite a bit. This awesome button allows me to switch between both Channels A & B. I have one routed for FOH and one for In-Ear use only. There is no buzz or popping when switching between them. There is an on and off power switch for convenience. The light above the button is very bright and illuminates Green for Output A and Red for Output B. Requires 9V power (which is supplied in the box) or a 9V Battery (sold separately) if you don't want to plug it in. It's durable metal structure and button will last me forever. If you want the ease and convenience of silently talking to your team in a live setting, then this is for you. This is much more discrete than having two separate microphones for the worship leader. It has helped me communicate with the worship team and create better flow and less distraction during our services. Love it! Thanks to Sweetwater for always giving incredible customer service and quality products. Blessings!

Fantastic tool for live looping artists

I've been using a Panic Button for nearly 4 years for live performance, and it's become an invaluable piece of my gear. I live-loop with a Boss RC-300, which has a mic input. The Panic Button allows me to A/B my microphone, so it only gets recorded when I hit the switch. This is fantastic for those times when I want to record long guitar lines but only a short piece of vocals, all in one phrase. Output A goes direct to my mixer, Output B goes to the looper. Everything about this device is rock-solid, and mine has been 100% trouble free for over 1000 live gigs already, with no signs of wear, no noise, and no hassles. Switching is dead silent, and the mic gain control really works. My only [very minor] complaint (and reason for the 4.5 star rating) is that it's not exactly easy to attach to a pedalboard with the typical velcro method due to the rubber feet. But I swapped the feet out for two strips of wood, which now hold velcro just fine. If it [ever?] breaks, I only hope they're still making them because I'll replace it ASAP. It's one of my favorite pieces of gear!

The only thing that works

For communication between team members in harp and bowl worship, the panic button excels. As a chorus is developed by a team member but they are unsure of the musical component, they switch with the button to communicate the short chorus to the worship leader who then develops the new chorus to sing. No pops when switching, works great!

Awesome Product!

I love the Panic Button and what it allows me to do. I am a music director at a church in Austin Texas and this bad boy allows me to communicate to the band as well as singing and leading songs. The A/B switch is just what we needed. The only small thing is that when switching to the B channel there is some small unwanted fuzz. I will try and tweak that signal but, other than that this works flawlessly. One small hiccup I had setting up was the instructions and the diagram showing the dip switches. It was kind of confusing but, with some trial and error I found what I needed.
