Measurement Mic Pre-amps
1. Does the iAudioInterface2 come with a microphone?No it does not. The iAudioInterface2 comes ready for any 48 volt phantom powered measurement microphone.
2. What microphones do you recommend?
Not surprisingly, the ones we sell on this web site. Please look under "Measurement Microphones", plus there are some just cool gig kit stuff under "Accessories".
3. I have an AudioControl Industrial CM-10. Will that work?
Yes, and one of many excellent choices under "Measurement Microphones".
4. May I use my current measurement microphone with the iAudioInterface2?
Most likely. Your current measurement microphone will work if it is 48v phantom powered.
5. May I get the CM-20 everyday mic individually calibrated when I purchase this product?
Certainly, when buying the CM-20 also purchase item "Cal-20" which is a calibration file for an individual microphone. You can get the CM-20 you already own calibrated though that will cost more due to shipping both ways and take four to six weeks. We strongly recommend you purchase the mic and the calibration with the response file at the same time.

No, it is an output only.
11. What is the impedance of the TRS inputs? May I use it with high level, even speaker level, signals?
The input impedance is 40k ohms balanced (20k unbalanced) so yes you can put high levels, including speaker levels into it if you first set the gain range in AudioTools.
12. What is the battery life of the iAudioInterface2?
Four to five hours. Charge time is approximately three hours.
13. What kind of power supply is provided with the iAudioInterface2?
