The Micmute PPD from Whirlwind is a compact desktop-style on/off switch that provides quick and easy control of a mic or line audio signal. The rugged metal housing offers XLR input and output connectors for wide compatibility. The indicating rocker switch will toggle between on and off states, blocking and passing audio alternately with each switch. In the "on" state, the switch shows a red bar. A blue LED illuminates when a mic is live and a signal is passing through the box, and is not functional when phantom power is not present. The Micmute is entirely passive, requiring no power.

    Micmute PPD Latching Switch-On/Switch-Off Audio Switch (Desktop) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid And Simple These boxes seem expensive, UNTIL a) You compare them to the opposition and b) You actually use them. I've used many similar products over my forty-odd years as a (mostly live) Sound Supervisor/Audio Director. Most need to be fed batteries and are nowhere near as rugged. Given the pressures that attend live announcing, I also feel that those which feature the option of radical changes to control functions via dip-switches invite catastrophic contributions from unseen fingers. Whirlwind's one bulletproof box, one function philosophy sits really well with me. Sadly, they'd probably refuse to design one large enough to accommodate the in-laws... ...Still, there's no harm in dreaming... The PPD's brilliant blue on air LED doesn't require batteries when phantom powered mics are involved, yet the fact that dynamic mics prevent its illumination is (equally brilliantly) mitigated by the rocker switch's survival red indicator. This creates confidence as well as being (literally) foolproof. You'll have noticed that I've reported them to be not TOTALLY free of clicks. This is due to Whirlwind's technique of switching off by shorting both legs of the mic output, being pins 2 & 3. They do this to guarantee the maximum absence of noise from a line that's wending its way back to an open mic input. To my mind, these slight switching clicks from the Mi ute boxes only makes them unsuitable for the quietest of situations, such as (for example) a late night talk show, or when the mic in question is for hosting the broadcast of a fine music program, ...situations that are almost invariably operated from a console anyway. I can, however, unequivocally attest that (when it comes to providing P.A. systems for live events) I've found them to be the simplest, most rugged and most dependable method of protecting announcers from attacks of the dreaded foot in mouth disease.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs as advertised. No complaints about the performance of this audio switch. I would offer a suggestion that a 3 position switch to replace the dual action ON/OFF to incorporate a momentary mute action as well

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job. but The switch does the job but the switch is hard to push and clicks loud when u switch it ON and off. would of given it 5 stars if it was a soft /quieter switch.
