What does an audio mic splitter do?
A device used to route the signal from a microphone to two or more inputs. Mic splitters are used in live sound situations to feed microphones to FOH and monitor mixers simultaneously, as well as for live recordings, where the same mics must feed the PA systems and the recording rig.
Does a splitter affect mic quality?
Various types of microphones will be affected in different ways by a splitter system. The most noticeable degradation occurs with dynamic microphones, although all other types will suffer degradation to some degree.
Can you use a splitter for 2 microphones?
An alternative is to run a splitter into your recorder’s 3.5mm input jack. Then, connect two mics into it. These would also be 3.5mm connecting mics – commonly, lavalier mics. The best “affordable quality” lavalier option out there right now, in my opinion, is the Rode Lavalier Go.
