I thought I’d document this important information for next Awards night when we’re faced with the problem…
The problem was – how to adapt a mobile phone into a professional mixing console… the mobile phone in question not having any form of usable jack sockets (and the solution requiring possible use with multiple/different phones).
The answer is –
Buy one of these http://www.mobileplanet.com/p.aspx?i=147013&partner=froogle
Connect the speaker to the PA system into an input channel
Cut off the microphone and fit an XLR onto it – fit this into an auxilliary send – keep the send level VERY LOW otherwise it will distort.
Well mixed the sound is good and works very well – and paired with any bluetooth phone for adaptability. I’m sure sound engineers all over the world will be pleased I tried this and it worked.
Oh the rest if Awards Night… it went well – but more in the morning with photos too.
