Q:Does it need a battery? Should I just connect a recorder to the XLR end to make recordings?

Q:Use of AT831r with UniPak transmitter
A:We do not make a converter for doing this. You would be better off with the wireless version of the microphone, the AT831cW, for wireless use and adding our AT8539 Power Module to it if you need the ability to make the mic "wired" again. The AT831cW will have the female 4-pin Hirose connector needed to connect it to our UniPak model bodypack transmitters. The AT8539 Power Module input connector is the same type 4-pin connector that is on the transmitter. Like your current AT8538, the AT8539 Power Module has a standard 3-pin male XLR output connector and requires phantom power to operate.
Q:AT8538 Poswer Module question
A:The AT8538 Power Module for your microphone requires phantom power to operate. Phantom power is NOT passed on the 1/8" jack of your recorder. Phantom power is passed on the 3-pin XLR MIC jack only.
Q:AT8538 with ATM35?
A:The Power Module for the ATM35 is the AT8532, which is available through the ATUS Parts Department (email@example.com).
