Condenser microphones require a 48 volt power source provided by the TRI-CAPTURE XLR microphone input known as Phantom Power. If Phantom Power is not turned on, the condenser microphone will not operate. Set the PHANTOM switch on the front panel of the TRI-CAPTURE to the inward (ON) position if you are using a condenser microphone that requires 48 volts. Phantom power will be supplied to the XLR Input 1 of the TRI-CAPTURE.
NOTE: Phantom Power is not supplied to the 1/4" input.
