Radial Engineering used the 119th AES convention to introduce the DM-1 HotShot, a combination microphone signal splitter and mute switch that allows the vocalist to depress a foot switch to mute his mic and redirect the signal to the monitoring system and/or intercom.
Designed specifically for dynamic microphones, the DM-1 HotShot is a simple passive device that features an XLR input, momentary foot switch and two XLR outputs designated 'main' and 'monitor'. The microphone connects to the input and the main output connects to the sound system as usual. The monitor output is connected to the monitor desk where the monitor engineer can route the signal to the musicians on-stage monitoring systems and if desired, to the technical crew.
Suggested retail price is $75 USD.
