Wireless condenser- multiple transmitters to single receiver

Postby art3mis » Tue Dec 03, 2019 8:59 pm

Hi
Researching a solution for a pubic installation that would require several (2-5?) omni condenser mics and transmitting to a single receiver roughly 5 meters away.

Something like the new RODE Wireless Go (which is a 1:1 ratio microphone setup) would be ideal.

Does such a product exist?

Not that I am aware of.

What's the problem with having a receiver per mic/transmitter?

Need a single receiver. All audio inputs will be read and processed by a single application.

Multiple receivers feeding a mixer to gereate a combined output? It's what everyone else does...

You *have* to have a separate receiver for every transmitter.

It's the law of Physics.

A single transmitter can send to multiple receivers - but you *cannot* have several transmitters to a single receiver.

However - you can have several receivers in a single housing.

Multiple transmitters on the same frequency just fight with each other and cause horrible noises and unusable sound.
