        We have 2 Rodelink Filmmaker Kits (wireless lavalier microphones) and I use a Zoom H6 to bring various sources in, including the microphones - there was no easy fix for going 3.5mm to XLR without ungainly long cords, and this solved the issue without adding length !

                    Hi Nik,

                    This product will literally take a 3.5mm stereo input & convert it to a male XLR - providing there's nothing non standard about the XLR input on your transmitter - there's no reason it wouldn't work.

                    Hi Jason,

                    Unfortunately by connecting a VXLR to the end of that microphone - it won't actually pass on the required voltage to power up the microphone.

                    If you've got a battery powered microphone, such as the Rode Videomic - you could attach the VXLR & it will work.

                    Alternatively you could get a professional shotgun microphone like an NTG1, 2, 3 or 4 & they will all plug directly into the Smartrig with an XLR cable & get the phantom power straight from that unit. Only issue is that those microphones are a lot more money.

                    If you needed any further guidance, please don't hesitate to call us.

                  Is this designed to work with the RODE Link Newsshooter wireless system? Have been told it does, however the Newsshooter comes under Lavialier systems, and this says it doesn't suit Rode Lavalier mics.

                    For the output of the receiver this will work.

                    It will allow you to output the receiver into a camera that has XLR input. That's what people would using it for.

                    Hi there,

                    It will support the Videomic pro - but it cannot pass the power through to the VXLR once adapting the Smarlav +.

                    You can, however, plug the Smartlav+ with the SC3 connected to it, directly into the 3.5mm connector of your Zoom H5.

                  I have a filmmaker kit but want the output of the receiver to go into a soundcraft deck mixing unit. there are already mics on the system that need phantom power. I tried a purpose built cable - TRS to XLR, but it didn't work at all, even if the phantom power was off.
                  Would this adaptor work for this task?

                    A:

                    Hi Jezza, The Reporter mic doesn't require phantom power - but I've been told that the transmitter pack doesn't provide enough "Juice" to get a workable volume level out of the reporter mic. Rode will be bringing out an XLR transmitter sometime in the new year which will simply plug into the XLR connector of the Reporter mic (or any other XLR mic you want to use). Don't have an exact date but keep an eye out for it.

                  I brought this hoping it would work with the Rode SmartLav. It doesn't. What do I need to connect the two? Getting slightly overwhelmed by the total lack of industry standards in mini-jacks - 3 pole, 4 pole with two different formats and 5 poles with two different formats. Makes it hard to put a versatile kit together!!!!!

                    A:

                    This item does not suit Rode Smart Lav or Rode lavalier microphones. Its only intended for the rode Videomic and Videomic pro. The smart lav microphone, is intended for smart phone use only since it requires power form the phone to operate. we don't have an XLR adepter at this stage to do this conversion. You need to purchase something like the Vidpro XML microphone which is switchable to use with a camcorder standard microphone input, then you can use your vxlr adapter.

                    Your mp3 player is stereo, so you really need a 3.5mm to 2 xlr cable. We sell them on our website. This converter is made for microphone 3.5mm unbalanced to balanced input.
