Could you use it as a preamp without its recording feature?
Asked by: Andrew
No. There is no output besides the headphone output. While you can monitor it from the headphone output before recording, the headphone out would add unwanted noise to the signal and the output would be unbalanced.

How much current (mA, not Volts) can the recorder supply to a phantom-powered microphone?
Asked by: David
I don't have that spec. The 48 volts is also used to polarize the capsule, a fixed charged mic, the 11 to 48 volts is for the amp circuit only. The mA spec you most likely are trying to match is from the microphone and represents its typical current use, it is not a spec requirement.

question

Does this allow dual mono recording - a second safety track, at a lower level?
Asked by: Dave
The Saramonic SR-VRM1 does not record in dual mono. It is an XLR connector. A 3.5mm TRS will record in dual mono because it's a stereo connector. An XLR is only one signal mono.
