Motu track 16 phantom power
Hi all. Sorry if I'm posting in wrong thread but seemed most relevant. I was wanting to know if anyone could tell me if I can access phantom power through the guitar input instead of mic inputs on a motu track 16? I would like to run a mic with built in preamp into the guitar line input and avoid using the breakout cable or breakout box. Thanks.

The guitar input on the unit is Hi Z only. You'll need to use the breakout cable for phantom power.

There is a breakout box which is a bit neater than the cables.
