audio devices, set to LINE for Line. When using microphones
operating on phantom power, set to PH for phantom power.
DO NOT select phantom level when recording with microphones
that do not operate on phantom power, wireless receivers,
mixing boards or any unbalanced devices, because it may
cause damage to both the adapter and audio device.
