Kopul CMX-2 overview

  • 1Description

The Kopul CMX-2 Two-Channel Passive Camcorder XLR Adapter is a lightweight compact mixer with XLR inputs for taking professional-quality audio signals from two sources, and then mixing them together for output to a camera with a stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) microphone input. It is suitable for filmmakers who use camcorders, DSLR, and mirrorless cameras, and need extra mic- or line-level inputs and the ability to control the output levels.

The unit features two balanced XLR input jacks that accept a range of microphone- or line-level sources such as from balanced XLR microphones, wireless microphones, preamplifiers, and external audio mixers. An auxiliary input allows for connecting wireless devices with an 1/8" (3.5mm) output, such as a smartphone or an MP3 player.

The fully passive circuit design does not require batteries or external power for operation while keeping the signal clear from unwanted noise. A ground switch (GND) can be engaged to prevent unwanted noise and hum from affecting the sound. A mono/stereo selector switch allows for audio signals to be sent to two separate channels (in stereo mode) or combined into one channel (when set to mono). The input levels of each channel can be controlled using the dual stepped trim control knobs.

For attaching to a camera or camcorder, the unit features a 1/4"-20 threaded post with a wheel for convenient and secure connection. A threaded socket on the base of the unit allows for mounting the adapter on a tripod. The rugged chassis is designed to withstand the challenges of field use, and both amateurs and pros can utilize the adapter to achieve professional audio quality that can later be synced to picture.

    CMX-2 Two-Channel Passive Camcorder XLR Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed simple audio mixer I got it so I could mix audio before it goes into camera. Wanted something simple, most audio devices were much more then I needed. I just wanted to be able to plug in a shotgun and still have another channel available to plug a mic into.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the price! I use this on Sony VG30's and a Canon G20. It is clean sound and I like the way it can attach to the camera without needing a tool. The finger grip works great for quicker on and off in the field when needed. there is no locking pin on the base and allows for any orientation you need for different cameras. It does slip a little if you do not tighten it enough though. Solid purchase. As good as the others costing double. All plastic though, if that matters to you.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If this is what you're in the market for, get this one. It's simple. It's compact. It fits on pretty much any camcorder and will get the job done! Do you need all that fancy stuff? I didn't think so and neither did we when we were looking for an XLR Adapter. This one is killer and you won't have any problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the price I purchased the CMX-2 to bring the sound from my mixer into my Canon Vixia HF-G20 for video depositions. I thought I was going to run into some sort of problem since this product seems to be on the bottom end of the price spectrum in it's class, but non have surfaced. Mounts nicely between the camera and tripod. Haven't had use for the AUX input, but works perfectly for my uses.
