"Road Test PB-05"
...It´s simple and amazingly effective. The distance that the eye sees is adjustable and the on/off effect is noiseless...
...Bottom line is that for singers who are right up on the mic all the time, the Mic-Mute works wonders for cleaning up the mix. It also works on phantom power, so don´t worry about batteries.
This is a great little tool. Everybody should have a couple in their toolbox...

This guitar amp is probably the first 30 Watt pure tube power amplifier that comes in a 19", 1U rack box format. Seven implemented valves/tubes give a warm sound with excellent overdrive capability. The musical 3 way equalizer ensures a wide range of adjustment and tonal potential. All controls are arranged in a classic way with large visible knobs, for quick and easy adjustment. Two integrated fans transfer the heat to the rear of the unit in order to prevent thermal problems known to occur with other rack mounted tube amps.
The PB-05 is an automatic microphone gate unit which is based on the latest optical technology. The PB-05 is plugged between microphone and cable. It's equipped with an infrared sensor. The PB-05 senses if someone is in front of the microphone and will switch on the microphone. The distance can be adjusted between 15cm and 120cm with the help of a Trim Pot. The microphone will be switched off automatically if nobody is in front of it. A red status LED indicates if the microphone is switched on. The PB-05 works with 48 Volt phantom power. Condensor microphones can be used in connection with the PB-05. The phantom power passes the microphone. A small push button on the top allows the user to toggle between "Mic On" and "Optogate Enable". The PB-05 is ideal for lead and backing voval mics, acoustical instruments and talk back mics. The PB-05 ist the best and easiest solution for the most common problems in live applications. It eleminates unwanted backgound noise of other instruments into unused microphones on stage. So, the clarity of the mix and the dynamics will be increased due to less phase cancellation and backgound noise. It reduces the possibility of feedback from unused mics. Just plug & Play...
The MIC LIFT V1 motorized adapter solves one of the most common problems in conference applications. It can be mounted on a mic stand and gives the engineer the ability to change the height of a mic stand remotely without the need to leave his FOH place. The unit is clamped to the lower section of the stand (just below the locking sleeve) and 2 small electric motor with rubber wheels grip the inner section of the stand and raise or lower as required. The unit is controlled by a supplied remote control which uses an XLR 3-pin connector. This can be extended as required using 2-core screened mic cable or via s spare channel in a multi-core stage cable. The MIC LIFT is the best solution for conference and house of worship applications. It is very easy to mount this unit on almost every kind of microphone stand. Just Plug & Play...
Mic Lift V2
The MIC LIFT Ver.2 motorized micophone stand is our answear to many enquires from customers who liked the idea of the MIC LIFT V1 but would like to prefer an "invisible" version for their applications. The motor and the main mechanical parts are completely mounted in the base of a stand in order to keep the visible parts small and make the MIC-LIFT V2 usuable for TV shows and other applications where smart and discrete solutions are required. The MIC LIFT V2 can be controlled from every dmx light desk as well as with an extra remote control that will be delivered together with the MIC LIFT V2. The remote control and the MIC LIFT can be connected via 3 pin mic cable or the multicore. 50 different presets/heights can be savesd and recalled with the remote. The actual height of the MIC LIFT V2 is displayed on the remote control itself. The MIC LIFT V2 is currently the best solution for conference and house of worship applications as well as TV shows Etc. Just Plug & Play...
In Ear One
...Now you can, just use your guitar cable for your in ear signals ! No more problems with empty batteries and the well known wireless problems with your in ear system.
The Smart DI
You know the "funny" problems when it comes to di boxes: No signal bargraph, the result is marathon running between stage and desk and looking for signals. These problems are past now. The new transformerless "Smart DI" have an integrated microcontroller and an LCD display. The XLR output is muted if no connector is plugged in and will be switched on after about 0,8 sec. if an input connector will be plugged in. A footswitch allow the artist to mute the Smart DI for any reasons.
The Optogate PB-06 is our microphone gate unit that can be fixed under a table. On this model both XLR-plugs are on the rear of the device. The PB-06 is equipped with an infrared sensor as well and senses if someone is in front of the microphone in order to switch on the microphone. The distance can be adjusted between 15cm and 120cm with the help of a Trim Pot. Inside the case is a 5mm hole for the possobility to fix the PB-06 under a table.
After taking into account our customers suggestions we developed the PB-07. On this model the sensor is on the flat side. Like the other models the Pb-07 will switch on the microphone if someone is in front of the mic. A red status LED indicates if the microphone is switched on. The PB-07 will switch off the microphone if nobody is in front of the mic. The distance can be adjusted between 15cm and 120cm with the help of Trim Pot. On the back is a 4mm threaded hole for the possibility to mount a clip on the PB-07. In this case the PB-07 can be installed on a mic stand and will disappear behind of the stand. The PB-07 can be connected to a gooseneck microphone as well. The PB-07 works with 48 Volt phantom power and the phantom power passes on the microphone.
The Optogate PB-09 is integrated in a mic table stand. As with the other models it will switch on the microphone if someone is in front of the mic. The stand base has a "Mic On" button that can be used as "Push To Talk" or "Mic Latch" switch. These functions as well as the Optogate function are user programmable with three dip switches. A fully isolated control input connector allows the "Remote Control" of the mic in order that a moderator of a conference can switch on or switch off the mic of other participant. The PB-09 is powered with 48 Volt phantom power. The phantom power passes the microphone. The 1,2 kg heavy base is cast iron and three rubber feet provide a good degree acoustical isolation.
Mini Audio Lab
The Mini Audio Lab is a useful tool for many situations in live applications. A switchable high precision sine wave generator with 30 ISO frequencies is wired to a symmetrical 3 pin male XLR connector. A pink noise generator is also implemented. An additional 1 Watt amplifier, wired to a NL4 connector allows for an easy speaker check. The sound pressure level of the different ISO frequencies can be meausured with a small electret microphone. The Mini Audio Lab will display the sound pressure of the different ISO frequencies. This gives the engineer the opportunity for an easy pre adjustment of the FOH equalizer. A feedback frequency indicator and a delay measure function is also provided.
Vari Box 3 &
Here is the new 3 phase distribution box with a line monitor and an overvoltage protection. These devices are available in 1 and 2 rack units.
Cable Check One
The Cable Check One allows an easy test of 6 bars, 4 bars as well as 8 pin Speakon cables and xlr cables. The connector plate can be easily changed for an other connector plate.
XLR Generator / 48V Tester
This handy device is avaible in two different versions: One a Pink Noise generator and the other a 100Hz sine wave generator. Just connect the XLR generator to a desk, switch on the phantom power and the generator will start. In the case of defective cable in the twisted pair the built in LED flashes 2 or 3 times to indicate a fault on the connector pins 2 or 3. If the LED does not illuminate the phantom power is off or the ground of the cable is not connected. The cable might be ok if the LED is on continuously and the generator is working. The output of the XLR generator is balanced.
This is a two-component kit consisting of a phantom-powered "transmitter", built in to a XLR connector and a battery-powered "receiver". Used on its own, the transmitter can check the integrity of the cabling to the mixer. If the cable is undamaged and all three wires are connected, a direct tone is sent to mixer. If not a LED mounted in the connector indicates the nature of the fault. When used with the receiver unit, the combination can also check that the two signal wires are connected in phase or pin-to-pin. If the receiver is used as a source of test pulses to feed a sound system, the receiver can check the phase of the resulting acoustic signal picked up from the internal microphone, or an external microphone.
XLR Multi Tester
This is possibly the smallest XLR multitester with built in microprocessor in the world. It contains an XLR cable tester as well as a 48V phantom power tester and a 120Hz sine generator. It fits in every pocket. The XLR-Multitester can recognize defects like short circuits, wrong polarity and broken wires. Three status leds indicate the test result. The tester is also able to check the 48V phantom power on pin 2 and pin 3 of the XLR when connected to a console. A 120Hz sine wave tone is sent to the mixer if the phantom power is ok. A small 3 Volt, Cr1220 provides the power for the cable test. When connected to the mixer it will use the phantom power from the console for the test.
Wireless Amp Switch
Are you tired as guitar player on stage to be "fixed" beside of your footboard when you want to change to your solo sound? This problem is now a matter of the past. A remote control device to be fixed with VELCRO tape on the guitar is the solution. A receiver unit, be connected to the amp or distortion device will change the sound or channel when you press a button of the rc.
This is the smallest DMX cable tester with a build in microcontroller worldwide. It fits in every pocket due to the small size. It can recognize defects like short circuits, wrong polarity and broken cables. 3 status LEDs will indicate the test result. The tester is also able to check the DMX signal on pin 2 and pin 3, if it is connected to the lighting desk.
Wouldn’t it be great if somebody made a…
“Axel Joost” had been working in the music business for 25 years with over 2000 concerts and other events in his client list. Seeing a real need Axel and his team originally developed the Optogates for their own projects but as the demand grew the circuitry was refined and the PB-05 was developed for local and export sale. The PB-06 came shortly after following useful suggestions from clients & in June 2004 the PB-07 was released.
Today thousands of Optogate units are in use around the world and are still 100% German made.
Well now somebody has
