The JK Audio AutoHybrid is a simple passive telephone audio interface designed for IFB feeds, remote monitoring, conferencing, broadcast and studio recording applications. The AutoHybrid allows simultaneous send / receive audio flow through standard telephone lines. Balanced XLR input and output jacks allow noise free connection to pro audio recorders, mixers, amplifiers etc.

When enabled, the Auto-Answer feature will automatically answer an incoming call on the first ring and then disconnect after the caller hangs up. Additional controls include Call Button, Drop Button and OH (Off-Hook) status indicator LED. The dual transformer hybrid circuit results in a 20dB reduction between the send audio level on the caller output and the transmit level. A detachable screw terminal block provides remote control access to all features.

I'm looking for a way to input a voice message, which has been processed in iZotope software, onto a standard answering machine, with the goal of having a clean outgoing message. Is the JK Audio AutoHybrid interface the way to achieve this? If not, what device would do the job? Thanks....

The AutoHybrid is a passive telephone audio interface, allowing a telephone signal to be brought into a mixing board as an audio signal, and then separating the caller and sender of the call. Typical use is radio call-in shows, podcasts and conferences.

Asked by: Rick
The JK Audio AutoHybrid is a telephone audio interface, specifically for an old-fashioned landline, and will not work with a smartphone. I would recommend the JK Audio Daptor Three Bluetooth Cell Phone Audio Interface, B&H # JKDAP3, which can be connected to your iPhone through a 3,5mm cable or Bluetooth wireless, and can be inputted into your mixer. There is also a LINE IN on the unit, so you can send the signal back to the caller. You would require a mixer with and AUX Out feature.

question

I have had this unit for a few years; loved it in the beginning, but then....people (on the other end) would have trouble hearing me. Maybe it's my phone line. I have it plugged in to my Mackie 1402- VLZ Pro mixer and I'm told that there's an echo (that mix minus thing..I'm guessing). What can I do to remedy that?
Asked by: Richard B.
You can get a mix minus from an aux bus. Send the aux to the hybrid and pot up everything but the hybrid on that aux bus.

question

Does this unit work with digital landlines? I bought a Rolls P19 Patch 11 and it does not work with my Shaw Cable landline.
Asked by: Rich M.
I was going to answer this but B and H will not allow me to provide the address and phone number of the manufacturer so you're on your own, though luck.

question

I would like to know if this unit does its own mix minus. I intend to use it with a sound device 302 so no auxiliary sends are available.thanks

The JK Audio Auto Hybrid is a basic passive telephone interface. It features a line level input and output on XLR. It will need to be sent a mix-minus signal as there is no control on the unit itself.
