    My Ultra-DI DI100 does not power my Shure beta 98HC Mic. When turning it on the light under the In/out button. The red light flashes and does not stay on.

      RexBeckett Hello Ollie, the Shure Beta 98H/C requires phantom power. DI boxes do not usually pass phantom power to their inputs so cannot power condenser mics. Normally these mics would be connected directly to a mixer that would supply the phantom power. The flashing In/Out LED indicates that the DI100 is running from battery power.

      If you explain what equipment you are using, we may be able to suggest other solutions.

      Olliew3399 Hi Rex, thanks for getting back to me. I must have assumed the DIbox would provide phantom power.

      Realistically I want to use my Shure beta mic with a busking battery power amp. I have a Roland mobile cube which has been great and used a cheaper mic with battery pack.

      What do I need to power my mic while busking ?

      Cheers ,

      RexBeckett Hi Ollie, yes the DI100 does almost exactly the opposite of what you want. You need a battery-operated phantom power supply. There are a few possibilities. The ART Phantom II Pro is probably the most cost-effective solution.

      RexBeckett Shure used to supply a battery-operated preamp for this type of mic - model MX1BP. They discontinued it but you may find one in the used market.

      For example: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shure-MX1BP-Microphone-Preamplifier-/273630844831
