mbox pro PHANTOM individual on off?

New generation mbox pro.

I just realised there is no individual phantom on off?

i dont like the idea of sending 48 V into my coles ribbons.

Don't worry about sending phantom to newer ribbon mics. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Just make sure that you aren't patching any cables with phantom on.

Once again, phantom won't hurt your ribbons.

FYI, according to the manual, there's no way to switch off the phantom power on individual preamps.

And I would double check with the manufacturer of your ribbon mic before I took a chance with it.
