AXT651 Talk Switch

Installing the talk switch on an AXT200 transmitter adds remote push-button audio routing of the XLR and TRS analog audio outputs of a linked AXT400 receiver. The transmitter must be within range of a synced AXT400 receiver to enable talk switch operation. To activate audio routing, press and hold the talk switch button.

Installation

  1. Thread the microphone cartridge into the talk switch body.
  2. Thread the talk switch into the transmitter body.
  3. The switch ring can be rotated to align with the menu screen.

Talk Switch Mode

Selecting Talk Switch mode from the Audio menu of a synced AXT400 receiver enables remote push-button audio routing of the XLR and TRS outputs from an AXT100 bodypack transmitter or AXT200 handheld transmitter with the AXT651 Talk Switch installed. In Talk Switch mode, press and hold the transmitter button to route the audio output of a synced AXT400 receiver.

The Audio menu of the AXT400 receiver has three Talk Switch modes that determine how the audio is routed to the XLR and TRS connectors.

Push to Add TRS Output

Audio is routed to the TRS connector when the button is pressed, audio at the XLR connector is always on.

Push to Add XLR Output

Audio is routed to the XLR connector when the button is pressed, audio at the TRS connector is always on.

Push to Toggle TRS Output

In Toggle mode, the button routes the audio to either the XLR connector or to the TRS connector.

Selecting a Talk Switch Mode

  1. The talk switch mode is selected from the AXT400 receiver audio menu: Audio > Talk Switch
  2. Use the control wheel to select the mode. Press enter to save.
  3. Use the IR Sync function to link the transmitter and receiver.
  4. Press and hold the talk switch button to activate audio routing.

Routing AES3 Output

When using Talk Switch mode, the following options are available for routing the AES3 output:

  • Always On: The AES3 output is always active and is independent of the talk switch button
