Rycote 017022 overview

  • 1Description

The Rycote TAC!T- Ultra Flexible Star Quad XLR-3F to XLR-3M Mogami Cable with Integrated Third Order 18 dB/Octave HPF (18") is designed to filter out infrasonics and low frequency noise below 60 Hz such as from wind, surface vibrations, and handling noise that could otherwise overload your microphone. The filter is built into a Neutrik XX-series XLR connector and requires a portion of a mixer's or preamp's phantom power to operate. The filter is symmetrically balanced so it can then pass phantom power to the condenser microphone while retaining a balanced signal.

Because it requires the microphone to draw phantom power through the circuit, the filter will not work with dynamic microphones and may slightly reduce the performance (in max SPL or self-noise) of high draw microphones such as those from Earthworks. Typically the front end filters of most live mixers are 6 or 12 dB/octave, so the 18 dB/octave filter in the cable will be more effective at cutting low frequency energy and is especially useful in applications where no external filter is available such as when sending the microphone signal into a camera.

Note: The Tac!T filter is not switchable.

    Rycote 017022 reviews

    XLR-3F to XLR-3M Cable with TAC!T Filter (18") is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, but one flaw. The TAC!T does it's job quite well, pairs very well with MKH8000 series mics and DPA mics using the C preamp. You must, however, keep it a foot or more away from any transmitters as it issusceptible to RFI.
