Phase reverse box that's cheap but decent needed for....

    The Firepod doesn't have phase reverse, so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a small phase reverse box that will fit into the chain between the mics and the Pod. At the moment I'm using phase reverse 'after' recording, but for headphone mixes and convenience, I really want to get it reversed before it gets recorded.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Make a few XLR f to XLR m jumpers that are out of phase, 12" or 16" long.

    AHA! Why on earth didn't I think of that :) With all the cabling I've done in the past... I'm presently beating myself repeatedly about the head for not thinking of that one lol!!

    Cheers Kurt.

    I have small boxes with phase and pad switches
    makes for easy on the spot comparisons

    a simple XL to XL adapter with phase change ... like the simple inline pads

    you can even get these inline xl to xl with limiters built in
    probably diode or fet based chopper limiter

    beware that you need to look at charts for Mic interfacing and not the standard line level 600 interfacing
    ... it could still work but the listed attenuation will not be correct

    read this

    here is a calculator
    use the H pad

    Shure offers an XLR tube that reverses the POLARITY
    of the 3-pin source. I believe that Audio-Technica and Whirlwind offer devices for this, too. You can also check out Switchcrafts' website. I think that they offer an empty "tube" wth connectors so that you can wire up your own DIY polarity reverse circuits.
