MicroTrack 24/96 phantom power and compatible microphones

Published: Fri November 04, 2005  News Feed

The MicroTrack 24/96 mobile recorder offers 30V of phantom power. This means that the unit will work safely and effectively with a wide variety of popular microphones while preserving battery life and extending recording time beyond that of 48V devices. In addition, some microphones that claim to require 48V of phantom power may function with less.*

Below please find a list of commonly used microphones that are capable of operating with 30V of phantom power according to the manufacturers’ specifications (please note the operating voltage range listed next to the name of each microphone). Please bear in mind that this list is by no means comprehensive. Please check your microphone’s documentation for its minimum phantom power requirement.

Based on the Manufacturers’ Specifications, the Following Microphones are Advertised to be Compatible with the M-Audio MicroTrack 24/96**:
