Manley MicMAID 4x4 Mic/Micpre Matrix-Switcher
Manley MicMAIDacts as a routing hub to connect four mics and four preamps in any combination you desire. The intuitive, grid-based selector buttons on the front face make matching mics with preamps a matter of pushing a couple of buttons. Ultimately, the MicMAID is a massive time saver that keeps you at the controls instead of running back and forth as you find the ideal mic and preamp combination.
With the push of a button, the MicMAID will store your mic and preamp settings for you, as well as the gain setting. The gain knob itself provides 19.5dB of gain adjustment at 0.5dB steps, so matching adjustment setting from one combination to the next is easy.
