Any practical suggestions for detecting microphone use before an amp? I have a lot of microphones that I would like to be able to detect which individual one is being used, before they go into a marshaling board, as after that point, i cannot tell at the level of detail that I need.
And yes, these mics are already in place, and adding an extra wire to the switch on the mic is not a practical option, although it would be nice. So it has to be monitoring for a signal. I have around 60 inputs to monitor.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
