Hi All

We've got an Alice Air 2000. I'm wanting to add a limiter to the presenter mic - currently the mic is just plugged straight into the desk. On the back of the desk on the mic fader, there are two plugs - send and return.

Can someone advise the best way of connecting it up? I guess I keep the mic plugged into the XLR as it is now, then use the send and return for the mic processor?

Thanks
Damien.

Yes, you are correct. I tend to avoid AIR2000s like the plague but I assume there's some internal jumper to route the signal via the send/return sockets rather than straight through. Most desks have the send/return on a three-pole jack with normalised contacts.

Thanks Andrew.

The send return bit...I guess that won't be carrying phantom power will it?

Thanks Andrew.

The send return bit...I guess that won't be carrying phantom power will it as it's not directly connected to the mic?

No, the inserts are line level. The mic input (XLR) is the bit that sends the phantom power.
