I am very new to audio and need some guidance. I inherited a setup where there is a mic and speakers in a meeting hall, and the audio output from that system feeds into a bridging input transformer.
I need that transformer to send a signal to the microphone input of a MacBook Air so I can use the sound to broadcast a Zoom meeting.
I have three questions:
- How can I connect the output leads of that transformer to the 3.5mm TRRS input of the MacBook? I have an adapter like this so far.
- Does that transformer just do some kind of impedance matching, or does it actually change the sound somehow?
- Is there some kind of device I can get that will equalize/balance the audio input so that if the speaker makes hard consonant sounds they don't make the sound level spike and get distorted?
Thanks in advance for your help!
