Optogate PB-05 D Automatic Audio Duck Switch Play-back engineers, Monitor Engineers, Bands using In-Ear Monitors

Optogate PB -05 D

An Automatic Microphone Switch for XLR vocal microphones. Pairs well with in ear monitors for bands needing some sound MUSIC bleed but not complete mute. (-16db)

For Full Mute check out the PB 05 M (-42db)  . 

When musician is in range of infrared proximity sensor :

“Mic On”

When musician is out of range of infrared proximity sensor:

” Mic off ”

(in this case:

 reduces the signal by -16 dB, in the “Mic Off” positions.) so let’s call it…

 “Mic Duck”


Musicians who use in ear monitoring or Wedges will most likely want this model.  They may also want to reduce the stage volume to better communicate. This model isn't full mute mic switch
The PB 05-M is that version.
Audio engineers, FOH, Worship Leaders, and Band Mates 
You will witness:
  • Better Sound clarity
  • Reduced possibility of feedback issues from unused open mics
  • Control of stage volumes ( that ringing in the ears may stop & musicians will be able to talk with each other)
  • More usable headroom of your monitors and FOH reinforcement amps 
(Optogate is Way easier then using a noise gate).
The Optogate PB-05D attaches through the XLR 3-pin connector to the microphone then into the cable that leads to sound mixer/speaker/amp
Powered via phantom power & can be used with dynamic or condenser mics.
 It has an adjustable distance “sensitivity”  
And bypass switch on top of the unit if needed.

Sound engineers will set up infrared mic range according to the vocal musicians mic technique.

Optogate is German engineered product. Here is a lil more info for you to geek out on.  

The clarity of your mix and the dynamics (both on stage and in the audience) will be dramatically increased due to reduced phase cancellation and reduced unwanted background noise.


Model  PB-05D (ducking)

The PB-05 is available in 2 versions.
The PB-05 M is the mute version if you prefer that one. 

OPTOGATE is ideal for lead and backing vocal mics, acoustical instruments and talk back mics. It is the best and easiest solution for the most common problems in live applications. It eliminates unwanted background noise of other instruments into unused microphones on stage.
