Default DEQ2496 for phantom power?

I have a Behringer DEQ2496 and a Behringer ECM8000 mic. I would like to do speaker measurements on my computer and don't want to purchase a phantom power supply for the ECM8000. Is there any way to use the DEQ2496 as a phantom power supply for the mic, and pass the signal through to my computer?

Thanks!

IIRC the DEQ has phantom power built in.

Yes DEQ2496 has phantom power but I do not think that you could make measurement. In another word mic will work only with pink noise provided from DEQ and the signal at the output will be generated pink noise. Much better choice would be to buy small Behringer mixer such as
Eurorack UB 502 or 802. It will cost you $ between 30.00 to $ 50.00 brand new!!!

That will do everything you need and more.

On page 16 of your manual (or the PDF on their site) it tells you how to hook up the mike. The phantom power for the mic is built-in. Let me know how it works. I want one to! I'm jealous!

His question is if you can use the DEQ purely for phantom power to pass measurements to his computer, he knows the DEQ provides phantom power.

I mean I have no idea, but I wouldn't think so, but then I'm usually wrong.

I picked up a phantom power supply for 30 bucks at Guitar Center.

IIRC, the DEQ can't pass the unmodified signal to any outputs, it's purely for internal calibration. However, the last one I played with was about 6 years old, so things may have changed since then, but I doubt it.

mazeroth,

You can probably get by with one of these:

I suggest this unit to my users who have built-in audio on their PowerBooks, iMacs, and PowerMacs for hooking up a proper measurement microphone.

Hope this helps,

Chris

Careful!

The UB502 doesn't have phantom power.

You are right, my mistake. As I am owner of UB802 I assumed.
