Neve Melbourn 48V

Hello everyone,

Anyone knows how to bypass the 48V on the mic inputs of an early version Neve Melbourn ?

Also, I'd like to know if it's better to use the mic inputs for synths rather than line input

Thanx so much for the help,

As a quick fix you could wire up a special XLR where the shield is open on one end, As long as you keep it short enough.

Hi

I'm not sure it will work, especially if your synth has an unbalanced output... because it would still put 48v down the signal lead and, if the synth is grounded to the same ac ground as the console, you would still get a path.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned blocking capacitors?

Ok, I think I'm gonna try something easier and go thru the line inputs...
Thanx anyway

Hi

Far safer and easier and you have up to 20dB gain in the channel amp and 10dB in hand in the channel fader. Loads of line gain available for whatever you use there.
