The Comm-biner is a quality stereo audio interface that combines production and walkie talkie audio so both can be monitored via headphones. It is particularly suitable for reality and documentary production, but useful in any situation where walkies must be monitored as well as production audio.
The Comm-biner V2 introduces a new chassis and DIP switch, which allows the user to choose whether to feed the walkie audio to the left, right, or both channels. It also has the standard stereo-mono switch. In stereo mode, normal stereo monitoring of production audio with the comm feeds both channels; in mono mode, the stereo input is mixed to mono and fed only to a single mone earpiece. Additionally, the ring of the headphone jack is lifted so a mono earpiece will not short out the right channel feed.
No need to block one ear with an uncomfortable surveillance tube, compromising the sound of your headphones in that ear. Both ears are open so you hear normally and the walkie talkie can be heard equally in both ears.
The Comm-biner can be used with any input source from professional mixer/recorder or camera to IFB receiver, iPod or iPad and feed to headphones, IEMs or earbuds. The signal chain is completely passive, so no power is needed.
A transducer and tube are included for times when use of surveillance is preferred.
