juicedLink RA222 Overview

The RA222 Riggy-Assist Dual-XLR Preamplifier with Phantom Power and Metering by juicedLink is designed for cameras that don't have integrated audio meters, manual gain control, or a headphone output. The RA222 features two 4-segment meters which can be calibrated to the camera, an 1/8" mono headphone output and an AGC disable switch.

The RA222 features 2 locking XLR inputs with low-noise microphone preamplifiers. Each channel includes a Mic/Line level switch, a Hi/Lo gain switch, and a Phantom power switch. The onboard Phantom power voltage is selectable between 48V/12V. The inputs can also be summed mono, copying each input to both sides. The right channel can be completely powered down to conserve battery power if it is not needed.

When engaged, the Audio Output Bracketing feature of the RA222 ensures that your audio inputs won't clip or distort. By placing the RA222's performance in mono and enabling the 16dB pad on the right channel, you end up with two signals with identical content, yet the right is recorded 16dB lower. This way if a sudden loud noise or a boomy portion of audio is recorded, you'll have a backup track with headroom in case the 0dB output clips.

The RA222 Riggy-Assist is powered by a 9V battery. High capacity lithium-polymer rechargeable batteries can be used as well as alkaline. The low-battery indicator can be switched between alkaline or lithium-polymer threshold, so you can use either chemistry without leaving unnecessary capacity in the battery.

question

Would this unit work to connect two XLR microphones to an iPhone? Seems like I could use the unit's mic or headphone out to go into the iPhone's head/microphone jack via trrs cable?
Asked by: Jason
Using the juicedLinks Mic Level output jack along with a TRS to TRRS adapter such as the Rode SC4, you are able to connect the unit to a smartphone.

question

Had my first film shoot ever and instead of going dual channel I used this and it was amazing! That said, I was going handheld and had my riggy attached to the hotshoe of my DSLR. And some shots I had to throw away because there was a rattling sound, either from the cable, the XLR connectors, or the riggy moving around. I didn't think that it was that sensitive. Is it the mic (Rode shotgun) picking up all that rattling or is it the XLR connectors? I'm not a sound person so maybe I just need to take more care when I'm running and gunning.
Asked by: John W.
I use a similar setup and often in fairly rugged environments and have not had that issue. One thing that might make a difference is attaching the the juicedlink to the bottom of the camera to separate any potential rattles from cabling or connections from the microphone.
