The phantom power on some Focusrite products is switched on in banks of 4. If you are recording with condenser mics that require phantom power, any dynamic mics (that do not require phantom power) that are also connected to affected channels will be supplied with 48V. Generally this does not cause problems but we advise checking with the mic manufacturer first before connecting.
Take particular care when using ribbon microphones - vintage, non-active ribbon microphones can potentially be damaged by receiving phantom power.
