An Amazing Live Mic Routing Tool!

The Whirlwind SelectorXL is a programmable footswitch device that lets you split your mic signal into two signal paths. The SelectorXL's mute switch allows you to route your mic signal wherever you need it to go. That way, you can disconnect your microphone from the front-of-house system and rout it to the sound engineer, or control various vocal effects independently. You can also assign the SelectorXL to act either as a momentary or as a latch switch, and since the SelectorXL's passes phantom power, you can use it with either dynamic or condenser microphones.

Whirlwind SelectorXL Microphone Signal A/B Switch Features at a Glance:
  • 1-to-2 mic splitter with independent muting of each path
  • Completely silent switching
  • For use with either dynamic or condenser microphones
  • Each switch is configurable as either momentary or latch
Add a Whirlwind SelectorXL microphone signal A/B switch to your rig and open up a world of microphone routing options!

Excellent piece of gear

I have used the ProCo Panic Button for switching my mic from front of house to my teams in-ears for years, but there was always a surge during the switch. Fortunately the surge always happened in the ears, not to FOH. I bought another PB for another worship leader, and this time the surge was a very noticeable pop to FOH. Called ProCo, and they basically said a 10dB attenuator was the fix. I got frustrated, and began looking, and found this. A bit pricey, but it has functioned perfectly, with silent switching and very solid construction. I like the different color LEDs beneath each channel. I'm very impressed, and will be replacing my other PB this coming year.

Very Cool

Works perfectly. I was a little doubtful the switching would be silent. I guess I'm not a very trusting person. Anyway, it sounds great. I tried it out with several mics (including some that required phantom power) and no pops or anything. Turning it off or unplugging the power could cause pops, but using it as intended it is completely silent. The LED's are very bright and are different colors, so it's really easy to tell which output it's using. It is slightly confusing in the description, but basically you have two options for the power (not counting off) - one that is just power for mics that don't need fantom power, and one that supplies phantom power to the mic. In other words it can't be powered using phantom power from the board. You can also use batteries when not providing phantom power, but the battery life would be really short. There are lots of options for how you want the pedal to operate, though you have to get to jumpers to make changes. The pedal switch itself doesn't have a hard clicking action, so it's not ridiculously noisy like some of those style switches. It's pretty expensive, but I am very happy with it.

THE Talkback solution

Highly recommended. This is a great solution for clean switching to different XLR channels. VERY RUGGED. There's no popping/clicking/padding when pressing the switch. It doesn't affect the signal quality at all. And there is no bleed-through to B when A is active. That was a problem with the ProCo Panic Buttons that I first used for this purpose. We use six of these boxes on our main platform in the Prayer Room, and are switching out the ProCo Panic Buttons in our Multipurpose room with these as well. If you want durability, we have tested and approved them-- we have worship teams on the platform 24/7-- I've had no problems with the whirlwind SelectorXL. Each of our main positions (worship leaders, prayer leader, drums) have one. Microphones are run through this box with output A going to FOH and active on default. Output B goes to a separate 'Talkback' mixer (Soundtech and these six positions are mixed and the output from the'Talkback' mixer goes to a channel on our Avioms with everyone using in-ear monitors). It's set up to switch from A to B on momentary, so that when a person steps on the switch they are sending to Output B. This works wonderfully, allowing the team to talk to each other without the room being aware. A huge help for spontaneous changes and transitions.
