Rack Mount Phantom Power + Phase Reverse

    Does anybody know about a rack mountable unit that will provide phantom power AND phase reverse switching functions? My Aardvark Q10 does not have phase reverse capability.

    I looked at the Little Labs device, but it is not what I'm searching for, plus the price is too high. I need a rope and tire solution, not a gilded lilly.

    What board are you using?

    1.Damn near any board now being produced as well as any pre's I know have phantom.
    2. Making phase reversals is too cheap and too much of a no brainer to do it any other way (if your board &/or pre's don't cover it)
    something like this:

    I have a Q10 also. I'm running that into Nuendo and I simple flip the phase after the parts are tracked. Since we have everything in one room, that's not such a bad thing b/c we have to record short takes then listen back in order to get sounds. What software are you running? There should be a phase reverse option for the tracks somewhere...

    I'm not using a board at all. Q10 direct to computer. Sonar XL 2.2.

    I was just curious, more than anything else. I've been reading that one must be careful to not do any disconnects when 48V is active. To me, that means mechanically switching phase.

    The intent of phase switching was for setting up drums and listening for the cancellation point.
