Gotliver and I have a question regarding phantom power. The Boss BR-1600CD has eight XLR inputs, with a phantom power option. However, when you turn phantom power on, it goes to all eight inputs- it's all or nothing. We were wondering a) would plugging a dynamic mic like an SM57 into a phantom powered input damage the SM57 or affect the recording; and b) if it would cause a problem, which pins on the XLR jack are involved with sending phantom power? Couldn't we just clip those pins off of an XLR cable in order to stop phantom power from going to a dynamic mic?
