Sabine Announces the World‘s First Phantom-powered DSP

ALACHUA, FL — “Microphone problems are history,” states Sabine Marketing Director Rob Rothschild. “The Sabine Phantom Mic Rider solves every podium microphone problem imaginable, including improper mic technique.”

How can this be? Simply put, Sabine engineers said “Why not?” and developed a phantom-powered in-line digital signal processor (DSP) that puts feedback control, automatic gain control and proximity effect control where it belongs: at the microphone.

The Phantom Mic Rider is the audio industry‘s first phantom-powered DSP. Each Phantom contains the FBX Feedback Exterminator® — the famous Sabine algorithm that increases gain before feedback; Automatic Gain Control — which maintains gain as the user moves toward and away from the mic; Proximity Effect Control — which reduces excess bass sound as the user gets closer to the mic and maintains flat frequency response at all distances from the mic; Plosive Control — which reduces the loud pops and bursts from certain consonant sounds in speech; and a Gate — which mutes the mic when no one is in front of it, using the included infrared sensor.

Installation and setup are fast and easy, and once installed, the adaptive functions of the Phantom take care of feedback, gain, and clarity. “It is like having an engineer in every microphone,” says Rothschild, “one who manages the gain, drops in a parametric filter to kill feedback, tweaks the EQ when the speaker gets too close, edits out the plosive sounds without affecting the audio, and even turns the mic off if no one is near it.”

And, perhaps the most innovative feature of all, solving mic problems at even the most challenging venues has a list price of only $119.95.

Innovation only from Sabine

“We are changing the way the industry will interact with microphones,” states Rothschild. Sabine Phantoms can be added to microphones in every church, school, boardroom, teleconferencing center or anywhere people use microphones for speech.

Regardless of how soft-spoken, blaring or unfamiliar with microphones a teacher, conference facilitator or church leader may be, the Phantom provides crisp and consistent sound without the pops and rumbles that plague so many venues.

The Sabine Phantom gives sound engineers a budget-conscious, quick-and-easy cure for the headaches podium microphones cause in sound systems, and saves customers time and money on existing and future installs. Every podium mic can benefit from the addition of the Phantom Mic Rider.

The Sabine Phantom Mic Rider is available for gooseneck, podium or handheld microphones. The controls (hidden beneath the security cover) allow simple adjustments to customize the Phantom for any situation.

Phantoms come is three models: The PMR-GP1-12 and PMR-GP1-18, for gooseneck mics of 12 or 18 inches. The IR sensor and plug are included at either length. The PMR-HH1 has the IR sensor built in and is for handheld mics.

Sabine also makes the Navigator Series multi-input/output digital system processor with full loudspeaker management and the 2.4 GHz Smart Spectrum Wireless Microphone series, and both include the FBX Feedback Exterminator.
