Can this be used to import other instruments ...

Can this be used to import other instruments using a male XLR to female 1/4" adapter, or is this for microphone use only?
Asked by: Thomas
I think it is for microphone use only. I think you would want to use a 'direct box' between the instrument and the x2u. I have never tried this myself.

question

is it compatible with windows 10?
Asked by: Anonymous
This item is a signal adapter that changes an XLR microphone signal to USB; therefore is should work anywhere you need to convert your XLR microphone's signal to USB regardless of the computer's operating system. We use it with Windows 10, Lenox, and, Apple operating systems with no problems.

question

Does it works normally with a BLX wireless system?
Asked by: Ricardo M.
This provides phantom power to a mic. If you have an output from the wireless receiver that acts as a mic output, then it should work to convert that signal to digital and input it to a computer via USB. It will give you a gain control for the mic and a headphone out with volume control. Check the specs for what you need. This does 48khz at 16bit. That's great, but it is not 24bit, not 96khz. The headphone out also can include sound from the computer mixed in, so it may have some features you don't want just for bringing your wireless signal into the computer. But it is wonderfully small and the durability of this device is top notch.
