Now choose from 3 types of Phantom Mic Riders
The family of Phantom Mic Riders is now expanded to include the new Phantom Mic Rider Pro versions. Like the original Phantoms, these Pro versions provide solutions to overcome almost every problem you may have with a gooseneck, podium, or handheld mic.
Phantom Mic Riders are the closest thing to having an engineer in every microphone. And now you can choose from three different versions to cover any application you may have. The new Pro versions feature 110 dB dynamic range and lower phantom power requirements, allowing these to be used in more demanding applications such as performance audio, recording, and broadcast.
Create a Worry-Free Zone for all Your Unattended Mics
someone shows you a product that solves every major problem you’ve
had with a microphone (including poor mic technique), installs by plugging
right into the microphone, and makes the power of digital signal processing
completely affordable. How about if it would work on just about every
podium, gooseneck, or handheld mic you ever used? A product
like that could only come from Sabine, the industry leader in innovative
audio products. The all new Sabine Phantom Mic Riders are the world’s
first line of phantom powered signal processors, and they deliver on that dream.
Phantom Mic Rider Pro Series 3: These new units provide one simple function. They are Infrared Gates that turn your mic on and off based on the presence of a person. The heat-sensing IR module is mounted on the gooseneck or is built-in on the handheld version. You can adjust the IR sensor for both time to turn off (5-15 sec.) and range (3-9 feet). These adjustments allow you to customize the gate function for any application. And the improved specs allow for transparent audio.
Phantom Mic Rider Pro Series 2: In addition to the same adjustable IR Gate as in the 3 Series, the Series 2 Phantom Pro units provide 3 audio processors: Automatic Gain Control for controlling gain as you move toward and away from the mic, Proximity Effect Control for controlling that excess bass sound as you get closer to the mic and maintaining flat frequency response at all distances from the mic, and Plosive Control, for reducing the loud pops and bursts from certain consonant sounds in speech.
Phantom Mic Rider Series 1: The original Phantom includes Sabine’s industry-leading and patented FBX Feedback Exterminator for maximizing gain before feedback, as well as the Automatic Gain Control, Proximity Effect Control, and Plosive Control. The IR Gate is also included, and this gate is not adjustable.
Typical Phantom Installation
Phantom Installation is a Snap
- Minimum phantom power requirement: 48V @ 10mA.
The Phantom Mic Rider operating guide includes a list of common podium mics, their sensitivity specifications, and the corresponding Phantom sensitivity level setting. The sensitivity of a microphone indicates how much voltage it generates when it is subjected to a calibrated sound pressure level. The Phantom works best when its sensitivity level is set to match the sensitivity of the mic. The operating guide shows how to set the sensitivity of the Phantom to match your microphone. Check the microphone manufacturer’s web site for the most current sensitivity specifications for your microphone.
Note: Some manufacturers define the sensitivity in mV and some in dB. Follow the link below to convert between the two units.
The Phantom Mic Rider works with 48V phantom power sources that conform to industry standards (DIN standard 45 596 or IEC standard 268-15A). Devices that do not conform can be modified to meet the standard, or external phantom power supplies can be used.
