OPTOGATE: IN-LINE XLR Automatic Mute or Audio Ducking Microphone Switches through an Infrared Optical Proximity Sensor.
We have Optogate form factors for every Vocal microphone set up, yes… even singing drummers.
Audio Engineers be sure get enough Optogates to cover every vocal musicians microphone. You will witness improved sound clarity, lower stage volumes, and greater headroom capacity in your amps. (Not to mention no more ringing in the ears)
(If using in ear monitors we suggest you get the PB-05 D )
Introducing the Optogate PB-05 versions
The PB-05 is available in 2 versions.
The PB-05M (Mute) has an attenuation of -42 dB in the “Mic Off” position.
The PB-05D (Ducking) reduces the signal by -16 dB, in the “Mic Off” position.
Both units are powered via phantom power, can be used with dynamic or condenser mics, have an adjustable distance “sensitivity” and have a bypass switch on top of the unit.
What is the Optogate PB-05 and how does it work?
The PB-05 is an automatic microphone gate unit which is based on the latest infrared optical technology. The PB-05 is plugged between microphone and cable. It’s equipped with an infrared sensor. The PB-05 senses if someone is in front of the microphone and will switch on the microphone. The distance can be adjusted from approximately 6 to 48 inches with the help of a Trim Pot.
